Bigger Than Life

Sons of Anarchy : Jax
(credit: Frank Ockenfels/FX)

Sons of Anarchy is not The Shield, it’s not the Sopranos, it certainly is not Madmen. If I had to compare it to any other contemporary drama, I’d say it’s most like Battlestar Galactica […] SOA, like BSG, is bigger than life. It’s steeped in a rich, thematic, costumed mythology, that can barley be contained in its naturalistic setting. It is pulp, it is melodrama. […] it is a family tragedy in the spirit of Hamlet and King Lear.
