    I still don't know how a motorcycle gang in northern California had such deep ties to the IRA and running their entire business model through goddamn Belfast.

    I could't get past the fact that it is supposed to be this deep club, but there are only like 6- 7 actual characters on the show.

    If you're already questioning it I suggest bailing on the show, it certainly doesn't get any better.

    Crazy to me that Opie was played by the same guy that was Gary Bertier in Remember the Titans

    I guess really it's just crazy that the large, grown ass man actor was supposed to be a HSer in Remember the Titans, along w/ Avon Barksdale that played Julius

    like compared to them Ryan Gosling actually looked like a HSer
    and shoutout to Turk from Scrubs playing a HS in Clueless and then about a decade later in Remember the Titans. Same w/ the fat guy that was Vaders's son in Boy Meets World and also the linemen Louie in RTT

    well that's not true, breaking bad was pretty slow for the first couple of seasons, and then turned into one of the greatest shows of all time.

    Yes, it gets better.

    It's not really worth watching though.

    I never understood why people watch or 'glorify' this shit. Since when did an outlaw motorcycle club become hip? Drugs, crime, and prostitution, is this a good thing these days? Are the 'Hells Angels' something good in our society?

    Reminds me of the movie 'Pretty Woman' which glorified being a prostitute. Little girls now want to grow up to be prostitutes and little boys want to grow up to be outlaw bikers. Neither profession offers you a retirement or medical plan. Both professions will lead to an early death or a life in prison. 'Dumb fucks' doing their thing and thinking they are really 'hot shit' when they aren't. Like this girl and her stupid 'Suck my Dick' tattoo:

    I thought it was ok - good first seasonish, but a couple of my friends I had to convince to actually not stop watching after the first season. I think the show's official ratings we something like that as well, low to ok to start with

    the first season set it up and it was a bit slower but i wouldnt say the first SEASONS were slow, meaning many seasons.

    a much better cop/crime ring type show based on action is:
    Cinemax's Banshee

    It's kinda lowkey incredible tbh, especially the action and fight scenes. The acting is solid and storylines are crazy, but not SoA kidnap a baby to Ireland crazy.

    Best post you ever made. Show is glorified trash for trashy lifestyle wannabes.

    Hells Angels fantasy land with unlimited supplies of meth.

    It is a garbage show, terrible television. Everything you said is correct- and it even gets worse. I watched an entire season.

    Many people liked it but I doubt that Americans love to sit on their ass and watch TV- their standards for entertainment are very low.
