    Very interesting material. Expanding into other MC groups and the headaches for the justice department. Strong characters. Well played by a large cast. So many mini plots available, could be endless. At this level of society of thieves, cutthroats, and drug addled bikers—–survival is the priority. Storyline is credible. The violence is doable inside the storyline. Guns can be a reality when all else is tried.
    An adult story, played be my favorite actors, make for a fun popcorn night.

    My daughter got me hooked on this show so badly that we had to run out and buy seasons one and two so that I could get caught up! I made my husband get caught up as well and now it is our favorite show! We just wish it would have more episodes, glad that this season will have 13 and so will season 4! Best show on television by far!!!

    Words can’t describe how thrilled we are to have Sons come back next season. We would be lost without this show. It is that darn good. We can’t wait for Tuesdays and we have a very busy life but, again, yes, it’s that darn good.!!! Hope it will be around for years to come. If so, you will be making alot of people happy.
