What other show has an ending montage like Jax having an affair, Tara committing a hate crime in prison, Clay turning rat, Tig pampering a baby, Juice getting stitched up, Sean Finnity (Donal Logue) doing heroin and fucking a mirror? All after a school shooting takes place.

Sons of Anarchy must surely hold the record for most music montages of anything ever. Very haphazard premiere, with some really awful writing to boot. I'm convinced that the first two seasons will remain the only legitimately great ones of the entire show.

What parts of the episode did you consider to have horrible writing?

Well most of the charecters are in a very bad place but Otto is having the worst time of it by far.

Apparently the people who are in the know about these things say the way the sons handle their connection to the school shooting is not only callious but contrived as if this is somehow a surprise. Will just have to wait and see

All of it.

I've been a big defender of this show, but this season opener? Fuck it, I'm done. And the school shooting has nothing to do with that decision.

still, they do them very well. ive always said that sons uses music better than any other show. its really the only thing the show is great at.

the "john the revelator" scene is the best thing theyve ever done, but a lot of the montages have just been fantastic.

heres the problem with the show. i havent watched the pilot, but the episode summary on my dvr says something like, "jax tries to steer samcro onto the right path. clay needs to go"

hasnt that been the episode summary for the past 30 episodes?

Yep. Bored of Clay and more bored of Gemma.

I also felt bad for that porn chick whose face she smacked up. They treat her like shit.

I thought the school shooting was kind of WTF, but judging by the previously on part the weapon in question will probably be linked up to SAMCRO and cause some problems
All in all it wasn't the best episode, but I still look forward to seeing what's going to happen next.

The ending music montages is becoming kind of overdone point though.

the other thing that is wrong with the recent episodes is the bloated 90 minutes episode. if the cut the material down to 60, i bet it would seem like a much better show

The school shooting was disturbing but I think that Kurt Sutter is just trying to be artsy/deep. Throughout the episode the kid is seen in multiple scenes which has different members of the cast. I think that Kurt Sutter is trying to show how SAMCRO's weapon selling affects the community.

Does anybody else have a hard time liking any characters? I like Juice and Tigs but that's about it. Also, why did they treat the pornstar like shit? Gemma goes and slams her head into a fucking bench even though they need her to be in pornographic films? It doesn't make much sense to me.

Pretty much. The only characters I like now are Tigs, Bobby and Tara. Nero is okay too.

Stopped liking Juice when he started behaving like an idiot and failing at everything.

I still like Chibs, Bobby and Tig. Juice I mostly feel sort of sorry for. And I like Ron Perlman god dammit, so I sort of still like Clay.

I agree with the pornstar (or is she a prostitute now? are all the pornstars prostitutes?) getting smacked around all the time, its getting repetitive and her treatment is pretty cruel and petty.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I still like Happy also.

This show makes me cringe like no other for SO MANY REASONS.

What I find most interesting about this show is the fact that I still find many of the characters LIKEABLE and they do some absolutely disgusting, horrible, terrible things. I find this show almost as uncomfortable to watch as Rescue Me. And at least I do like some of the characters in this show, whereas I disliked EVERY. SINGLE. CHARACTER in Rescue Me. Seriously flawed human being FTW.

My only complaint about that episode was the musical montage at the end. Seven hells that was bad. Who is in charge of the music in this show?

The montages and Jax's diary voice overs are often painfully cheesy. I think it has been a long time since there was a good montage, the problem is they do them every episodes, sometime twice since they started doing the hour and a half episodes.

Another thing I find sort of irrationally annoying is that its 20 minutes after the show started and we still haven't done the opening credits.

Besides its cheesiness, I do still love this show.

Slightly more disturbing that Charlie Hunnam has been cast for the 50 Shades of Gray movie.

Without a doubt. Dave Navarro character name has changed since last season, and we don't know anything about him. I guess he is the father/step father of the boy who did the shooting, but the whole lead up was not only weird, but strange and out of place. (I thought the boy was going to get killed)

The school shooting was disturbing but I think that Kurt Sutter is just trying to be artsy/deep. Throughout the episode the kid is seen in multiple scenes which has different members of the cast. I think that Kurt Sutter is trying to show how SAMCRO's weapon selling affects the community.

The kid pop up in strange places thru out, and it seemed so out of place. It was almost like they color him in red on a white background w/ an arrow pointing at him ever time we saw him. If they had him pop up thru out the season, and then have done this could have been really good, but instead we get the rush to "shock Viewers" that came off as rushed and poorly done.
