Sons of An­ar­chy changes lanes

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Television - DEB­BIE SCHIPP SONS OF AN­AR­CHY, TDT, Mon­day, 9.30pm

CHAN­NEL 10, it seems, is bank­ing on bikies this week, with new drama Bikie Wars pre­mier­ing on Tues­day, and the lon­gawaited sea­son three of US hit se­ries Sons of An­ar­chy, pre­vi­ously screened on ONE HD, air­ing here to­mor­row night on TDT.

In the US, the third sea­son of the se­ries at­tracted an av­er­age of 4.9 mil­lion view­ers per week, mak­ing it FX’S high­est rated se­ries ever, sur­pass­ing FX’S other hits The Shield, Nip/ Tuck, and Res­cue Me.

Sea­son four of Sons is cur­rently play­ing out on Fox­tel, but for those yet to taste Sons’ bru­tal brand of drama, think So­pra­nos, with bikies.

For the unini­ti­ated, Sons is based on the lives of a close- knit out­law mo­tor­cy­cle club op­er­at­ing in Charm­ing, a fic­tional town in the Cen­tral Val­ley of North­ern Cal­i­for­nia.

The show cen­tres on pro­tag­o­nist Jack­son ‘‘ Jax’’ Teller ( Char­lie Hun­nam), the Vice Pres­i­dent of the club who be­gins ques­tion­ing the club and him­self.

For the al­ready con­verted, tonight’s sea­son three opener sees Jax and the club reel­ing from the kid­nap­ping of Jax’s son, Abel.

While Jax’s mother Gemma gets hit with some un­ex­pected news from her past.
