'Sons of Anarchy' Season 4 Promo: There's a New Sheriff in Town (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 10th 2011 1:35PM
We already heard from Comic-Con reports that Season 4 of the critically-acclaimed biker drama 'Sons of Anarchy' starts with the gang riding out of prison after 14 months behind bars, flipping off the place after their release. But now we're getting more of a look at what's in store for the SAMCRO this season.

One big obstacle stands in the way of the Sons getting back to business as usual in California after their working vacation to Belfast. There's a new sheriff in town named Eli Roosevelt, played by Rockmond Dunbar, and he doesn't seem intent on letting the Sons run roughshod over his authority. In the promo, he welcomes the gang back to town with a police cars vs. motorcycles high-speed chase.

Not pictured in the promo is Danny Trejo, who plays the head of a Mexican drug cartel that we've heard the Sons will start to do business with this season.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Costner will play Anse Hatfield. The series will retell the tale of the bloody feud between the two families. It's set to air next year, the 150th anniversary of the infamous clash.

"'The Hatfields & McCoys' is a classic tale of American history," Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of History, said in a statement. "These are names that are widely recognized, yet few people know the real story that made them famous."

Leslie Greif's Thinkfactory Media is behind the project.

"As an avid history fan, I am thrilled to join with Leslie Greif and History in this dramatic re-telling of a classic and timeless tale that is forever immersed in the folklore of our country," Costner said in a statement.

Gone Too Soon: Earth 2

Earth 2In 1994, I was excited about My So-Called Life and Friends, but not much else on the TV schedule caught my eye. A friend of mine loved ABC's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, so I would go over there to hang out and watch it.

Being sci-fi buffs, we decided we should check out Earth 2, a new show that aired an hour before L&C on NBC. I have this tendency to at least try out all the new science-fiction shows, knowing that even if I like them, the odds of them surviving beyond one season are slim. I quickly gave up on M.A.N.T.I.S. over on Fox, but found myself more intrigued by Earth 2.

What a fascinating and sophisticated look at a science fiction world. It was so much more realistic and grounded than the Star Trek series could ever be. The characters were horribly flawed and they felt much more human. As expected, the show failed, but not before I got 22 great episodes that still resonate in my memory.

Heartland: The Places You'll Go

Treat Williams and Kari Matchett(S01E05) The preview for Heartland that ran during The Closer said it was a can't miss episode. To be honest, I have no idea what they were on about. There wasn't anything particularly shocking, or interesting, nor any big revelations about any of the characters. It was, for the most part, just like every other episode has been. That is, somewhat disjointed with too little focus on the main characters.

And with this episode, I think they finally lost me. The promise that I saw in the premiere hasn't turned into a show that I am going to watch every week. Add in the fact that my Monday TV schedule is already pretty busy with Inside Nextel Cup, The Closer, Big Love, Hell's Kitchen, and the upcoming Saving Grace, and there just isn't enough room for Heartland. So, I'm checking out of St. Judes, and this will be my last post on the show.

Heartland: Mother & Child Reunion

by Brett Love, posted Jul 10th 2007 12:19PM
heartland - treat williams, kerry matchett(S01E04) This week we finally got the big clash between Nathaniel and Jonas that has been coming since Jonas left Stanford to return to St. Jude. Unfortunately, it is still such a one-sided relationship that there wasn't a lot to the clash. It came down to Nathaniel jerking Jonas around while Jonas had no recourse other than to beg and plead.

The decision that Nathaniel was struggling with regarding the fetal uterine transplant was interesting. Certainly the dangers and risks of experimental surgery are nothing new to him, as evidenced by the Neubacher heart for baby Maya. It's a tricky bit of business though when the guy who blew up his marriage by cheating on his wife, and then cheats on his new girlfriend with the ex-wife, starts pulling out the morality card.

Heartland: I Make Myself Into Something New

by Brett Love, posted Jun 26th 2007 9:00AM
Rockmond Dunbar(S01E02) With Nathaniel taking over for Bart as the Chief of Staff at St. Jude, his old position is available. This week we learn that it has been filled by one Dr. Tom Jonas (Rockmond Dunbar). I was curious to see how this would go because this is a much different character than C-Note from Prison Break. Give some credit to Dunbar. I was on board with him as Jonas right away.

It was good, but not what I was expecting. Based on the previews I expected there to be more animosity between Nathaniel and Tom. There was a bit of that as they disagreed over the treatment of Gilliam, but by the end of the episode they were joking with each other so it looks like the writers are going in a different direction.
