    I've heard the same thing about shows like family guy and South Park that they get good in the later seasons, I tried watching some early episodes and they were hard to watch

    Walking Dead was more realistic than Sons. That cozy little town of Charming at various points had gang warfare between blacks, Nazis, the Mexican cartels, IRA, Chinese Triad, American militia, and the Italian Mob. lol all they were missing are Islamic terrorists.

    It gets a lot better. Good show.

    Last season kind of sucks and the last scene is bizarre.

    Wearing that shit is douchey but holy shit the guy filming sounds like a total dipshit.
    I’m kind of pissed that kid took it off at the end.

    I once saw a poster here describe SoA as a 'Male Soap Opera'.....

    can't remember who that was, but I've never seen a more apt description in my life

    It does kind of jump the shark at a certain point, but overall I liked the show...

    Holy shit what a jackass. Is wearing a vest from a fictional biker gang in a TV show considered false valor now? He acts like they're veterans or something lol.

    "A lot of people died to wear that"

    I watched every episode but when I went back to watch the first season it was a tough sit. They clearly got some more money and production value as the show went on because it’s looks entirely different by the end. Going back the first season looks so damn cheaply made.

    I say stick with it though. I think the first three seasons leading to the climax of season 3 was some of the best television I’ve ever seen.

    Now after season 3 it all goes to complete shit and I hated it. I was too invested at that point though and had to finish it

    It's a show about coming out of the closet

    It never stops being cheesy. To be fair, it has its moments but I wonder how I managed to make it through the entire series. Nowadays I don’t give shows much of a chance at all. Don’t have the time or interest to get invested. If I first tried SOA this year, I would’ve tapped out in the first 5 minutes.

    I gave up at like season 4 or 5. It’s like walking dead but with a motorcycle gangs. Same stupid shit over and over.

    Did you find Justified to be cheesy as well?

    I made it about 3 episodes into that show as well. It actually reminded me a lot of SOA where it was good but just had these cheesy moments that took the wind out of my sails. I could easily see myself watching the whole thing but it didn't have that binge watch X factor to it like Breaking Bad had.
