TV Moment of 2009: Gemma Reveals Her Rape on 'Sons of Anarchy'

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 26th 2009 10:00AM
Sons of Anarchy: Balm, Gemma tells Jax and Clay about the RapeFX's wild west motorcycle series 'Sons of Anarchy' had a killer sophomore season, in more ways than one. Shortly after the finale, it was green-lit for season three, and it's easy to see why. Story arcs touched on gun-running cartels, an explosive porn business, and tensions both inside and outside of SAMCRO.

One of the best scenes of the season, perhaps the entire series, occurred in episode ten, 'Balm'; it was the culmination of an arc that actually began in the season premiere, 'Albification.'

All Danny wants for Festivus

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 24th 2009 5:02PM
I love Christmas. It is the best holiday. If all of the holidays grew asses, Christmas could kick every other holiday's ass by ripping off their ass and beating them to death with said ass.

It's perfect on every conceivable level. It aims to achieve total peace and tranquility of the human spirit and singularity of the soul through the selfless act of giving. Of course, in order for that to work, someone has to be on the receiving end and I'm more than willing to have my every dream fulfilled in the name of calming the cosmic waves.

So here's my wish list to Santa or Jesus or Buddha or whomever holds the universe in balance for things to suck less until the next holiday.

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 24th 2009 8:00AM
Sons of Anarchy, Charlie Hunnam as Jax TellerThis year offered plenty of hot and steamy TV moments, but some of the best featured hunky, half-naked guys. It was like an instant party for all of us female viewers out here, whether you're into sexy vampires, rough-gem bikers, or scrappy high school football players.

But rather than savor these moments all by ourselves, we've put together a round-up to share them with the world. Although they're numbered from one to 10, we think all of these guys are equally sexy. See if you agree with our choices.

Best and Worst TV of 2009: Jason's List

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 21st 2009 5:06PM
Daniel Wright2009 was a good year for television. It offered the resurgence of the comedy on network television, and the continuing growth of original programming on cable. In all honesty, I don't think I could just do a list of what was great and what was horrible on television because I would need pages and pages.

Instead, I'm going to focus on the things that really stood out this year. Sorry, Mad Men fans, but even though this was a great third season and an amazing finale, I expect it at this point. It's the only way I could come up with to keep my list manageable.

Also, as a point of protest I did not include Jon, Kate or the balloon boy hoax. These events got more attention than they deserved already this year, and I feel bad I even mentioned them.

TV: The Ultimate Holiday Icebreaker

by Stephanie Earp, posted Dec 15th 2009 10:22AM


Ah, the office holiday party - it's a delicate operation. After all, you know these people - in fact you probably spend one-third of your life with them - but do you really know them? Do you want to? If my experience is anything to go by, it's only sheer effort that's kept your opinions of how the boss really ought to run the company quiet. Ditto your feelings on your cube neighbour's BO, ugly baby or sloppy work.

And yet, every December the powers that be decide to round up this unruly group in a hall or hotel conference room, serve them drinks and expect them to get along without embarrassing themselves.

If it wasn't for television, it would be impossible.

Golden Globes: Best TV Actress Odds

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 11th 2009 7:00PM
TV is often considered a medium that's especially friendly to women, both in the audience and in front of the camera. (Certainly more so than the movies, which have been all but abandoned to teenage boys.)

This year, however, there didn't seem to be as many strong roles for women on TV's comedy and drama series. The Golden Globe TV races in the Best Actress categories are especially tight this year, and few newcomers will be jockeying with veterans for the five nominations in each category that will be announced on Dec. 15.

FX Renews 'Sons of Anarchy'

by Bryan Enk, posted Dec 3rd 2009 12:40PM
The Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original (SAMCRO) will ride again, as The Hollywood Reporter gives us the not-so-unexpected news that FX has renewed 'Sons of Anarchy.' The one-hour drama series, a hit with critics and audiences alike, will return in September, with 13 brand-new episodes.

The news of the series renewal coincides with the announcement that the season 2 finale, which aired on Tuesday, drew in 4.3 million viewers, an all-time series high. The finale pulled in a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49, which brings 'Sons' back around to where it started this season.

What Will Happen in 'Sons of Anarchy' Season 3?

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 3rd 2009 3:38AM
Sons of AnarchyThe Internet's all abuzz over Tuesday's 90-minute season two finale of 'Sons of Anarchy,' which delivered 4.33 million viewers and launched the FX show to the number one spot in cable programs for the night. It was also the most-watched episode ever for 'Sons,' surpassing the season two premiere (4.29 million viewers).

If you haven't watched it yet, we won't spoil it for you. Suffice to say the show earned its kudos that night, especially in the last 20 minutes. Not surprisingly, Kurt Sutter has signed a two-year deal to continue as 'Sons' showrunner, and FX has ordered 13 episodes for the show's third season, scheduled to begin in September 2010. What?! We have to wait nearly a year?! Ok, well, as Tony Soprano would say, what are ya gonna do?

Review: Sons of Anarchy - Na Triobloidi (season finale)

"Any idea where we're headed?" /"No." - Chief Unser to Gemma

If you're looking for someone to yak to at the office tomorrow about the second season closer of Sons of Anarchy but don't want to open your meathole to someone who has no idea what you're talking about, there's one sure-fire way to tell without having to say a word: check their fingernails. They will be bitten right down to the bone.

The 90-minute episode was a real tension builder from beginning to end and it not only managed to solve some of the protagonists' problems in very creative and interesting ways, but it also created new ones that just made me hungrier for season three. It couldn't come soon enough if I had a time machine.

'Sons of Anarchy' (10PM, FX) season 2 finale
No sophomore slump here. Season 2 of the biker drama has sealed the series' place among the best new shows in recent years, and though we hate to see it go tonight, we can't wait to see how Clay, Jax and the rest of the SAMCRO crew try, once and for all, to drive the evil Zobelle out of Charming. Expect several satisfying moments, but also one doozy of a cliffhanger.

Was Zobelle's kiss just a kiss?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 27th 2009 7:16PM
There was another observation from the last episode of Sons of Anarchy that I noticed, or maybe I just didn't want to acknowledge that I noticed it.

Just before Clay, Jax and company finally move in on Ethan Zobelle's cigar store for what will presumably be their final kill, Ethan and his daughter share an uncomfortably long kiss.

Granted these two think they are going to have their brains splattered against the walls by their scorned enemies and are in fear of their ever-loving lives, but the kiss they shared seemed to suggest that something else might be going on between then. So...

Did the kiss between Zobelle and his daughter mean anything?
Yes, they are uncomfortably close544 (79.9%)
No, Dr. Freud, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar137 (20.1%)

What Danny is thankful for

Danny Gallagher, TV SquadWho doesn't love Thanksgiving? I'll be enjoying mine with all the usual staples: turkey, cranberries, cornbread stuffing, some weird brown thing my father attempted to make and my Mom's mind-numbingly good meliton dressing. I'm literally chomping at the bit to take that first of 227 bites of homemade turkey. I've gone through three remotes in the last hour.

But I have to come up with something to do after all the food has been ravenously devoured by that wolf pack I call my family. And rather than list 100 reasons for regretting life (because 99 of them would be "Why did I eat that?"), here some things I have to be thankful for instead.

Review: Sons of Anarchy - Culling

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 25th 2009 11:16PM

(S02E12) "Either you or me goes home in a bag." - Jax to A.J.

The showdown we've been waiting all season to see finally happened tonight and even though it didn't end the way the antagonists deserved (i.e. heads removed where the shoulder meets the neck, placed on a stick and paraded around town on a substandard Japanese import), it still had my head spinning.

The show opens with SAMCRO preparing for their big, inevitable smackdown with the League by keeping all of their loved ones under lock and key at the clubhouse. But instead of just jumping into the fray head first with baseball bats twisted in barb-wire and all, they do what they should have done from the beginning: they plotted and planned. They turned the tables on the League and by doing so, turned the League on each other.

More you-know-what hit the fan this week, as the fallout from Gemma's reveal about the rape rippled through the club. Jax and Clay made nice, but Opie was out for blood after learning from Stahl that Clay engineered Donna's death.
