Sons of Anarchy came back and it kind of surprised me because I actually had no idea of its return date; also, where did the year go?

This piece came out about the Mastermind problem among recent dramas and brought up SOA and I have to say I slightly disagree. SOA's doesn't seem to me to have so much as a mastermind problem as it does have an issue where the stakes seem very high to the characters but the audience know certain things will be okay (for now). Season 2 worked so well because the main characters went through actual hardship, and the relationships between them shifted a bit. I still remember Gemma going to Tara and that scene at the table when she tells Jax and Clay. The other seasons while entertaining (a blight on that Ireland trip) lacked that; or dragged things out. It has felt like Juice has been a rat forever. I do think these last two seasons will be satisfying, but the conflict between Jax/Clay/Gemma----Tara has been stuck in a holding pattern for so long. That seems to be changing. Honestly, I've watched way too much SOA to quite the show.

I am still behind on the Bridge. On Demand is not being consistent :(

Legend of Korra premiered last night. I need to watch it again but overall I liked it.
What I liked:

* The Mako motorcycle chase scene. His Horatio moment.
* Asami and Bolin team up and Asami running the business.
* Seeing the other Aang/Katara children and the slight tension of them not being Air Benders and the family dynamics. Though couldn't some of their children be benders if they had any?
* The visuals of the Spirits.
* Jinora at the temple.

Ambivalent (for now) on:

* The introduction of the Water Tribe issues. First, I kept on getting confused about the Southern v Northern tribe thing. Second, well, the uncle reminds me too much of Tarlok (?) and I kept on wondering when would someone catch a clue that all was not as it seems. This dynamic reminds me just too much of Tenzin/Korra/Tarlok from last season and I wish this was dealing with another bender type: like Earth. IDK.

* The twins but only because I need to see more.

There wasn't anything I outright disliked; and even if there were I would wait to see how things played out over the season. //Crossing fingers for Iroh II to show up at some point//
