Sons of Anarchy Creator on Season 2: Family Comes First

Sons of Anarchy

Don't call Sons of Anarchy gritty.

It's not that the word doesn't accurately describe the show's bloody violence and testosterone-fueled moral darkness. Rather, Sons creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter just thinks the word has been used to death. And, Sutter says, all the gun-running and motor-revving is really just background noise to the show's family drama.

I wrote you a few years ago ...

Question: I wrote you a few years ago about Monk's second season, which was fairly awful, but the show has been incredible ever since. (I'm thinking my complaint made the difference). Now I'm writing because I'm a huge TV fan, and I know a good show when I see it — and Life is it. I DVR everything, and when I have the time, I start with the best shows and go from there. Life has become my first watch. For the other TV fans out there, some of my old faves are NYPD Blue, Boomtown, Third Watch and The Wire. I've been blown away by Damian Lewis and the quality of Life. I cannot handle this show being canceled, so I hope that everyone gives it a chance. We're talking about a lovable hero who was wronged and is trying to set things right while being a Monk-ishly brilliant detective and solving very interesting crimes. And the 12 years he spent in prison gave him a hard yet Zen-like attitude. Add Adam Arkin and Brooke Langton, and we're talking a must-see show. Answer: As I noted in my Dispatch ... read more

February 22, 2007: Some Kind of Miracle

Where do I start? First, a little self-indulgence. This magnificent episode — part three of a three-parter – aired on my birthday. So, Shonda darlin', thanks for the beyond-awesome birthday present! OK, enough of that. How fabulous was tonight? We knew in our hearts that Meredith would live. I enjoyed reading the plethora of comments the last few weeks, some predicting that "if Meredith dies, maybe she'll continue as narrator à la Mary Alice on Desperate Housewives?” Nope. The title of the episode was "Some Kind of Miracle."Last week when Denny and Dylan showed up in Meredith's temporary afterlife, I thought maybe that would be it. I thought Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyle Chandler were just there for quick cameos with hardly any lines. I absolutely loved how much screen time they had tonight — especially Jeffrey. Give that man an Emmy nomination for tonight, please (to make up for him not getting one last season). My favorite Denny scene was him praising Derek... read more
