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.

Magical Realism bookclub via tumblr. I have never actually participated in an online bookclub before, though I did go through two books with a local one that finally made me read David Sedaris and introduced me to Water for Elephants; but I am a fan of magical realism so I may give this a shot.

I have watched the finale of SOA and I have thoughts but not right now, maybe later. Quickly though: there has been many valid complaints about this season and the finale but, while last night was many things, it was not an actual reset--it may have just felt like one. Also, someone with more time and dedication needs to do a Hamlet meets SOA tumblr or something.

Speaking of needing time to digest something, Glee sectionals aired and I did a new thing of skipping majority of the show attempting plot, tuned in for some musical numbers, caught the last ten minutes and just followed reaction via tumblr and reviews and everything felt better. Right now the chances of me going through next week's Christmas episode are very low.

I'm terribly behind in fanfction reading (damn you delicious) but maybe I'll get some things read tonight during my 30 minute block after Happy Endings and before American Horror Story.

So many thoughts right now! Sutter is such a glorious bastard! I can't wait until next season!

All these commercials during Sons of Anarchy are killing me!

Kurt Sutter continues to be awesome on the internet.



Excerpt:

So if I were a desperate columnist at a near-defunct magazine/site, I'd probably find something well-liked and pontificate a highly controversial point of view. After all, conflict=drama=readers. And let's face it, you can't go after a show like Mad Men, it's a near-perfect show and there's nothing really controversial at stake. But there's enough moral gray area and highly dramatic plot complication on Sons to pick apart. Truth is, if I needed to pay the rent, I would have written the same piece. Hell, it's cyberspace, who knows, maybe I did.
