Yes please. Come to momma

Please tell me I'm not the only person on God's green Earth watching "Sons of Anarchy?" So much to love/salivate over/quote/covet about this show!!! First of all - the theme song: "the Dream we left behind" by Pedestrian. If you haven't heard this song, please go listen to it. It's classic rockyish awesomeness. Secondly - Charlie Hunnam (who plays Jax) OMFG - Hot. I'm completely indifferent to how old he is in real life or how old his character is, I'm going cougar on that ass. That fine fine fine ass. And ladies? Yes, there is at least one scene I know of that there's a nice shot of said ass. (Season two, episode one. You're welcome) Not to mention Katey Segal as his mother and Ron Perlman as his really bad step-father. Katey Katey Katey. I would absolutely not want to meet her in a dark alley! Her character, Gemma, is the baddest of bad ass mothers (or should that be mothas?) I've ever seen on t.v. She could kick my ass in a second, shoot me with one of the three guns she carries, and not break a sweat or displace a single awesomely highlighted hair on her head. Ron Perlman - sure, you're thinking Beast, or Hellboy, I was too. But once you catch sight of him being a supreme bad ass and having *ahem* relations with more than a few MC hangers on you'll know him as Clay - President of SAMCRO. SAMCRO - for those who don't know (and why don't you know!?) is Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original. The bikers are all awesome. It's kind of like watching the seven dwarfs - on some really bad crack. I also should mention a couple of other guys who are on the show these days. The current "bad guys" or worse guys I guess, are Adam Arkin and Henry Rollins. Yes, THAT Henry Rollins. Ooops. I have to go wipe the saliva off my keyboard. Take this as a public service announcement! GO watch "Sons of Anarchy" on FX. It's on Tuesdays at 9pm my time. You won't be disappointed. You can thank me by buying me my very own SAMCRO sweatshirt. A must have on every Christmas wish list this year!

I only watched one episode, but in that one, Arkin and rollins were great. Arkin as a corrupt fed, rollins as the White Supremacist they are allying with...

Now that Rescue Me is done, maybe I'll pick it up...

Von said...

Trust me, Z, it's GOOD.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

or wait, was Arkin a ruthless local businessman? I forget.

But in the episode, Katey Sagal went to the jail with her baby in a carrier. Great.

Plus, motorcycles.

Von said...

Arkin is ruthless new to town business man AND white supremicist.
That was Gemma's grand baby, by Jax and his crack whore (literally) ex. Who was played by Drea de Mateo.

I've enjoyed the Younger Arkin since Northern Exposure.

I'm an old, old guy.

did you watch Rescue Me?


Leary was surprisingly good. Plus, some really funny stuff. AND a great, great theme song by the Von Bondies.

I'm one of those Luddites without FX (I get some free random cable channels out of the wall).

But you have got me intrigued!

I guess it's not really surprising that a meteorologo-blogger is UnAmerican....

I don't know this show. Von, I need to buy your book of TV show suggestions because you have such wonderful suggestions that I previously have never heard of.

Von said...

Z, I did watch Rescue Me, it's a great show. And you're right about the theme song, good stuff.
AG and Thunda- Rent season 1, I think it's available now!

Any show with a fine, fine, fine ass sounds good to me!
I hope they use Charlie's asset wisely and have him back into rooms...

Von said...

Jennifer - great minds think alike!!
I'm hoping for more 'Jax gets out of the shower and doesn't immediately grab a towel' scenes.
