Sons of Anarchy
I've never been much of a one for watching series of U.S. dramas etc. or UK ones for that matter. I always have the attitude that if I miss an episode now and then it would obviously spoil it and not that interested in the TV anyway.
However! Our daughter, Johanna, loaned me seasons 1 and 2 (not series you note!), of Sons of Anarchy as it involves motorbikes and she though I might like it. I had to, out of courtesy to her, give it a go but half way through episode 1 of season 1 I was hooked and done pretty much nothing else for the past fortnight during the evening other than watch them. When the DVD's were finished I moved onto Netflix to watch them on the TV.
Absolutely rivetting, terrific characters, so much action (much of it violent) that if you look away chances are you will have to rewind to catch what you've just missed.
Still enjoying it and now on Season 4 and I think there are 7 in all so only approx 48 episodes to go!
