“Sons of Anarchy”: Season 3

This last season of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ was overrated. Even though everybody hated it.

It may seem like a contradictory circumstance, but in this case it wasn’t. That’s because the common response to the show’s third season was that, “It wasn’t the best,” or “Bad season of the show”. Neither of those responses really illustrate the degree to which Season 3 of ‘SoA’ was terrible.

Firstly, ‘Sons’ was an excellent series through its first two seasons. It had a very fine and entertaining first season and made a massive leap in its second season adding further depth and strengthening its characters. It was so strong that its exclusion from the Emmys was a major oversight and it seemed poised to finally hit the awards big time with Season 3.

But that didn’t happen. Conventional wisdom would have it that ‘Sons’ took a step, or even two, back during its trip to Ireland, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

The third season of this show wasn’t bad for the show. It was bad for television. It would have been seen as a bad season of much weaker shows that ‘Sons of Anarchy’. It was simply a horrible season of television, no matter what you were comparing it to.

So to say it was a bad season of ‘Sons’ almost lets it off the hook. Since ‘Sons’ was heretofore a great show, a bad season of it would imply that it was at least watchable, but that’s nowhere near true. Unless you enjoy watching one character demand to see his kid for eight straight episodes as the plot doesn’t move at all. Which I’m sure nobody does.

So, yes, this was just an abhorrent season of television, and not just “a bad season of this show”. In fact, you may simply want to skip it if you’re catching up.

But if you really want to stay current, you can buy Season 3 of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ on DVD.
