    Hunnam broods magnetically, but there aren't enough reasons to ride along on this incredibly bleak journey.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Heather Havrilesky

    Creator Kurt Sutter, a longtime writer for "The Shield," has said that he wanted to create a West coast version of "The Sopranos," but the world he created sometimes feels like "The Sopranos" without any discernible moral compass.

  • Ray Richmond

    Sutter packs the early episodes with colorful dialogue but at the same time so much random violence that it crosses the line to gratuitous.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    It might all have been a bit lifeless, had not Sutter, a writer on "The Shield"--which has so far kept its own tragic hero from speaking in blank verse--not cast his wife, Katey Sagal, as Jax's mother, Gemma.

  • Aaron Barnhart

    It will take awhile to figure out whether Sons of Anarchy was worth the investment of our time.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    A complex and well-built drama that leaves the viewer wondering if there's enough humanity here to make the hard-boiled stories worth following.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    For all its ferocity, and despite some excellent supporting performances, there’s a curious hole at the center of Sons of Anarchy. The character we’re supposed to be most interested in is something of a blank slate.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Well-made, but heavy-handed and hardly inviting.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Working with directors Allen Coulter and Michael Dinner, Sutter does bring a visceral quality to the violence, while detailing the club's code and commitment to functioning as an extended family; there's just so little dimension to the characters early on that it's difficult to care.

    Variety Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    Sutter has some interesting characters and ideas here, but the intensity isn't there yet.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    There are moments that require you not to think too hard, and some of the black humor doesn't overcome its fundamental nastiness. But on the whole, it's a superior package, intelligently constructed and handsomely executed.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ginia Bellafante

    The show, which begins on Wednesday, is all tattoos and creased leather vests and shock-value chatter, and it isn't half-bad.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    Set as far as possible from the canyons of New York, the series has a cool, original look--despite its C-movie moments when burly guys in black jackets zoom down the highway to the accompaniment of country metal rock.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Sons of Anarchy, an unfailingly coarse yet brashly effective series that burrows into the workings of the titular outlaw motorcycle club.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    A shockingly good series about a motorcycle gang in the apocryphal California valley town of Charming.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    I do think it has real potential to become a solid dramatic addition to the FX slate, as The Shield enters its final season.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Sons of Anarchy is bloody, disturbing and maniacally addictive.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Gritty and occasionally violent, Sons was created by Kurt Sutter, an executive producer on "The Shield." As "The Shield" prepares to bow out, Sons should capably fill the smart, testosterone-fueled void.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    It's grindhouse and art house, and it carries itself as if it doesn't give a damn what you think of it. And its infuriating push-pull quality is still fascinating.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Trade press has labeled this "'Easy Rider' Meets 'The Sopranos,'" which seems apt. Show comes from Kurt Sutter, longtime co-executive producer of "The Shield" (and married to Sagal) so that should give you a sense of tone and texture - violent, taut, well written.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Few series have exploded onto the scene with such a rich array of potential stories and inherently interesting characters.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Sons wants us to care about their hopes and struggles, but gives no clue as to why we might do so.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    Every character is unique - but almost none compares in strangeness to Bobby Munson (Mark Boone, Jr.), a Jewish killer/gang member/Elvis impersonator. Yes, I love this show.
