    Anyone into this ?

    HBO type series (I think) about an outlaw biker gang, think Soprano's with harleys and more leather than you could shake a hot exhaust pipe at :D

    Iv just started the first series and only really watched episode one, Iv heard a lot of ghood things about it (especially series 2) so fingers crossed. Initial thoughts are that I think I could really enjoy this. Some decent actors in it at least.

    what do urbans think of it?

    we persevered with the first series due to good reports here, but came to the conclusion it was laughably bad. haven't bothered continuing...

    It's not laughably bad but it's just not good enough to be worth making much of an effort to see it, imho. I'd watch it if I had the boxed set lying around but I can't be arsed tracking it down. It's a shame - it should be good material.

    It is actually a good look at a demarchic criminal organisation- the stuff with Jaxx's dads vision and the route taken by the MC under the guidance of Massive-Jaw is genuinely interesting. My only complaint is that the mexican bikers (the Mayans) are not really given much life, the fucking aryans are painted in more depth

    when they shoot the nazi rapist and he looks at them and asks 'my son never sees?' before he gets his desserts is great. The cunt was given a bit of depth.

    Watched the 2nd episode last night, thought it was ok, pretty enjoyable in parts actually. Theres a few things which dont quite feel right and are maybe annoyng me a touch but il bear with it for a while yet. Il get a few more in sometime over the weekend i hope.

    True. They're really just makeweights. Weston's ace, though. Properly scary.

    I read an interview with Hank where he said "I only had one transfer added for the show, the tree of life on my throat".

    So, the "I KILL NIGGERS" on your chest is real, is it? :eek:

    An excellent series, with some outstanding acting. Nothing laughable about it, except for the occasional deliberately humour inserts. Mostly at Sack's expense, it has to be said.

    Skinner out of X-Files is also good in it, but with the sort of show-no-weakness front off you get when the gangs face off sometimes only the Sons get painted with the real depth.

    The one niners are good

    'nigger, nigger, nigger. Say that again and I might not let you leave alive'

    first series was good, second series fantastic......it's baffling to think anyone could think otherwise

    It probably hasn't been okayed by the taste police.

    not at all - the taste police seem wildly positive. unfortunately, it's also crap.

    So you keep on saying... no one cares.

    I beg to differ. It's one of the best shows on the telly.

    I don't think it's got nearly enough softcore emo vampire snogging for the cool kids, tbh.
