  1. I was surprised to find that "Sons of Anarchy" did not have a thread in this forum. Okay, a small part of me was surprised. It wasn't a total shock but having watched the first couple seasons over that past few months it was a tad bit surprising that this wasn't being discussed. Maybe you have to have a fascination for marginal culture or outlaw culture or be a biker of some sort (motorized bikes). I am definitely a motorcycle enthusiast. I grew up in a chopper, bobber motorcycle backyard workshop world. But this show goes beyond motorcycle and outlaw culture. The first two seasons have an incredibly interesting struggle with the existence and/or reality of God. Something solid to believe in beyond the commitment of family, especially when it begins to fail us or we do not have the power to hold it together on our own. It isn't the common, "Oh, God, help me because I have no place else to turn" sort of belief. Family holds a strong bond and provides a reason for all the "bad/evil" things that need to be done in order to protect that family. However, when the characters become introspective the inner dialogue tends to shift to a large moral structure or code of ethics. Many of the characters seem to seek God's approval or forgiveness. At the very least they begins to question there actions in the light of a God hey can seek mercy and grace from. Maybe it is all in an effort to make sense of their world. Any thoughts from those who have watched? [edit] P.S. Overall the lifestyle portrayal in this series is a little too clean for me.
