FX gives Sons Of Anarchy a 13-episode order

Kurt Sutter and Katey SegalWhy have one outlaw biker show when you can have two? I always find it a little odd when you see two movies or television shows pop up at the same time that share strikingly similar premises. And that's what we have here. Sons Of Anarchy, from The Shield writer/executive producer Kurt Sutter, centers on an outlaw motorcycle club in Charming, CA. Clearly much different than HBO's 1%, which tells the story of an outlaw motorcycle club in Carefree, AZ. They're two completely different states after all.

Of course, I kid... a little bit. The shows do have different takes on the subject, and there is a rundown of the development time lines for both of them in the article at The Hollywood Reporter. Sons will focus on Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) and the conflict that develops as his loyalty to the club clashes with his trepidation where their lawlessness is concerned. Sutter's wife, Katey Sagal, is along for the ride as Teller's mother. The role of Jax's step-father was played by Scott Glenn in the pilot but will be recast in the series. I'm not sure if there is room for two biker shows on the television schedule, but with Sutter in charge of Sons, and Donal Logue signed on for 1%, I'll have to take a look at both of them.

I believe this will be a show well worth the time and effoert to look into. Don't we have enough reality shows that everyone WILL watch? This will give an insight on the relatively mundane life of the majority that see ALL motorcycle clubs out there(no names), and possibly a new light on what THIS country needs right now. Especially in this dire time with all of our beloved SOLDIERS just trying to do thier JOB!! We need more personel on board to help carry out our Nations Fathers!!! The more people that WILL get behind these organizations, the better. This is about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HERE!!!! A little to the left, but RIGHT TO THE HEART AND HOME!
