SOA Finale: Papa’s Goods

Warning: Spoilers Ahead! Don’t read it if you haven’t seen it!

Sons of Anarchy ended this week, and it was exactly what I expected it to be. I have read some criticism about it, because people were upset that it was “predictable”. Now, for a series that has been as intense and with as many twists as Sons has been, I think a nice, clean ending was the way to go.

Every loose end was tied up, and everybody ended up the way I thought they would. If they had done something crazy and unexpected, people would have hated it even more. People just get so caught up on criticizing series finales instead of just enjoying them.

My prediction was this: I thought Jax would tell the DA everything, give them the address where Gemma was, take care of his stuff, and go out on his bike like JT before the cops could take him in. I thought that Chibs would be president and Tig would be VP. I was a little unsure of Nero’s fate, only because I read an interview with Jimmy Smits where he made it seem like he wasn’t going to get away.

My mom had been telling me from the start of this season however, that she thought he and Wendy were going to get away with the boys (before there was any hint of that happening…good guess, Mom). Together, our prediction was exactly what happened. I cried for a good ten minutes after the end, but I really felt so happy. The kids and the club are now free from violence (hopefully), and Jax is free from his fate of life in prison for all of the murders that it took to make that happen.

I feel like all the people who are hating on the finale really didn’t understand the show. I’ve read the typical “selfish suicide” comments; how is this selfish? It is the complete opposite. He is a martyr. He sacrificed himself to save his club and his family. Anybody who truly loved and understood this show could see that.

What did you think? Did you hate the predictability of the series finale? Or did you love that it was exactly what you expected?

I guess there will always be haters. Whatever people may say, I thought it was perfect. Sons is one of my all time favorite shows, and although I’m sad it’s over, I sure as hell enjoyed the final ride.

Falling Behind

I wish there were more hours in a day so that I could watch everything I want to watch. Unfortunately, time is limited and I’m starting to fall behind on some shows.

A lot of fall shows are either coming close to their winter hiatus or ending for the year (or ending for good, like Sons of Anarchy), so let’s talk about where things are going with my favorite shows and what’s coming up in the next few months.

AHS: Massacres and Matinees

Freak show has only had 2 episodes so far in this season, yet it’s already had tremendous success. The season 4 premiere had such high ratings that FX has already renewed the series for a 5th season! In fact, the premiere has set the record for the network’s most watched TV show episode ever! FX has some really great shows, so that is very impressive!

WARNING: Spoilers ahead! Don’t read it if you haven’t seen it!

This week, couple Dell Toledo (Michael Chiklis) and Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett) join the Freak Show. Dell Toledo is a strong man, and Desiree, as she describes it, has “Proper girl parts and a ding-a-ling. I’m a full-blown hermaphrodite. Put that on your banner.”

SOA: Smoke ‘Em if You Got ‘Em

WARNING: Spoilers ahead! Don’t read it if you haven’t seen it!

So much happens in the 90 minute episodes that it feels impossible to talk about it all. This week, Gemma and Juice have survived another episode on the show, but I’m constantly wondering for how much longer.

The episode opened with Gemma walking down a deserted road; Juice let her go but took her car. She makes it to a diner where she has another nice conversation with Tara’s ghost. I’m not sure if this is her just trying to cope with the fact that she killed her or if Gemma has actually lost her mind. Her waitress, Gertie (Lea Michele), sees that Gemma isn’t doing well and talks to her for a while.

Week in Review 10/11

Another week of TV has come to an end, and there’s so much to talk about!

Sunday

The Strain came to an end this past Sunday, and quite a few people, including Marc Buxton from Den of Geek, were not happy with the way it ended. It’s true that nothing was resolved in the finale, but from what I understand this series is closely following the novels written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. I haven’t read the books myself, but I have heard that the season 1 finale ended the same way the book ended. The subsequent book, The Fall, takes place 2 weeks after The Strain and the final book, The Night Eternal, 2 years later. I enjoyed the first season of the Strain and am looking forward to season 2.

AHS: Freak Show

WARNING: Spoilers ahead! Don’t read it if you haven’t seen it!

Everyone’s favorite series American Horror Story: Freak Show premiered last night! Yay! And what a freaky premiere it was, indeed! I’ve never been afraid of clowns, but after last night…we’ll get to that after.

Early on, we met Sarah Paulson’s two-headed characters; conjoined twins Bette and Dot. This is going to be really great to watch, especially since Paulson is acting out two very different characters. Bette is sweet and naive, while Dot is bitter and untrusting.
