7:00 PM PT
Hamlet on a Harley? Really. Integrating provocative riffs on Shakespeare, creator Kurt Sutter has infused his dark biker series, Sons of Anarchy, with dramatic questions of rightful succession at an outlaw motorcycle club in Charming, a crazed fictional town in northern California. For four seasons Sutter, a former executive producer of The Shield, has explored loyalty and family with a frank narrative freshness as Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) realizes his father was murdered by strongman and former club president Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), who then married his scheming mother Gemma (Katey Sagal). With masterful twists of deadly betrayal involving drugs and gun running, Sons of Anarchy has become the most-watched series in the groundbreaking FX universe of morally challenging dramas.
