Sons of Anarchy
[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 6 premiere of Sons of Anarchy. Read at your own risk.]
Thanks to Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter's unfiltered Twitter persona, he has often been called controversial. But the Season 6 premiere of Sutter's FX drama has the potential to strike a considerably different nerve than his outspoken displeasure with the Emmy nominees.
Sons of Anarchy: 6 things to expect in Season 6
On Tuesday's premiere, while Jax (Charlie Hunnam) navigated the aftermath of framing Clay (Ron Perlman) and seeing his wife Tara (Maggie Siff) sent to prison, the episode...
Billie Jean King
For nearly 30 years, PBS's great American Masters series has profiled overachievers in the arts and culture at large. It only makes sense than when the documentary series finally decided to do its first study of a sports superstar, it turned to tennis legend Billie Jean King. Masters (Tuesday, 8/7c; check tvguide.com listings) has always reflected personality through performance, so who better than a woman who says of her craft: "Every ball I hit has a consequence."
On FX's Sons of Anarchy, Jax Teller's road to hell has always been paved with good intentions. That will be especially true in Season 6.
"Jax is trying to balance being a good father, a good husband and a good leader of an outlaw organization — therein lies the tragic flaws of this guy," creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter tells TVGuide.com. "He's got this sense of, 'I can unplug us from all the bad sh--. Let's go legit — let's head in that direction because that's going to keep us alive.' As the season progresses, the question is: How do you unplug if people perceive you as the source of power? And is it too late? Are things set in motion in such a way where it just can't be done? That's really the quest for him this season."

After Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were announced as the stars of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation, displeased fans created aChange.org petition to replace the actors with Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. But while Bomer is flattered, don't expect to see him in a Red Room of Pain blasting Bach on the big screen.

Sons of Anarchy to kick off Season 6 with supersized episode
"I've wanted to do that story for about three years," Sutter told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall previews Friday. "I knew it would be somewhat controversial, but I feel like as much as I wouldn't do something [just] because it was controversial, I'm also not going to do something because it is controversial....

With Lindsay Lohan starting a 90-day stint in rehab on Thursday, we're hoping that once she gets out in August, she can keep herself busy and gainfully employed with a return to TV.
Lohan's last TV appearance on pal Charlie Sheen's Anger Management in April was a modest success. She played a caricature of her public persona -- named Lindsay, of course -- who consults Charlie (Sheen) for anger counseling, complete with shtick references to her notorious personal life, including drugs (donut powder mistaken for cocaine) and court dates. Despite receiving a mixed chorus of jeers, the Anger Management gig got this endorsement from Newsday: "There was an ember of something that seemed totally lost in all the coverage, headlines and nonsense of the last few years: Lohan actually has some talent."
