Charlie Hunnam turned 32 on April 10. On Saturday night he went out to celebrate in Toronto where he’s been shooting Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim...for months, it seems. And there are NEVER any pap shots of him around. And very few of Idris Elba too. That Snooki creature goes to Toronto and there are easily over a dozen sets of her daily. Full Story

Thought I’d ease in to today’s column with some love for Kim Coates and fans of Sons Of Anarchy. After the disappointment of season 3 and especially season 4, I’ve not yet decided if I’ll be watching SOA for season 5. That was weak. And, sure, Charlie Hunnam is hot, but I don’t have to waste an hour of my time looking at him playing a decidedly UN-hot character when the internet services me fine, and in 5 minutes or less. Full Story

Many of you have written for my thoughts on the season finale of Boardwalk Empire...If you’ve not yet seen the season 2 finale of Boardwalk Empire, you should stop reading now or risk a major, MAJOR spoiler. If you’ve not yet season the season 4 finale of Sons of Anarchy, you should stop reading now or risk a major, MAJOR spoiler. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 14 recap How many of us thought that this episode was gonna be called “…or not to be”? The previouslies remind us of all the things that are in play.   That is, beyond Clay’s life, Opie’s actions, Gemma’s machinations, Tara telling Jax how to kill Clay, etc, we also have:Juice and Bobby in custodyOtto as a moleThe cartel assuring Jax all is fineThe Irish coming to town for a meetingAnd…in case you forgot…. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 13So I felt odd about this episode.  Both too little and too much happened and for what became the first half of the season finale, I wish we’d had a little more action to balance out all the plotting. Let me dispense first with the Tig storyline, because that’s what the show did. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 12 recap I don’t have kids.   I know a lot of you do.    I don’t, yet.  I will but I don’t.   And yet I find the relationships that I pay most attention to on TV are those between parents and children – and not always from the kid’s point of view. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 11 recapSo, the dude.   Mine in particular.   He’s all right, you know? (Also, definitively not reading this.)   He’s tall,  he makes up stupid songs, but I can say the thing I arguably dig the most is that he’s smart.   He ain’t perfect by any stretch, but he’s smart. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 10 recapYears ago, I took this leadership position that was handed down by someone else.   I was super-young, and thought I could do it, no problem.   I was pretty proud to have been bestowed it,  too.   Until,  pretty early on,  the group decided that the leadership I was rocking – the same leadership I had carefully emulated on the leaders the year before – was not cool with the way I was doing things. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 9 recapI am a little bit at a loss for words.   It’s been a bit of a day all around, and it is absolutely preposterous that it would be because of a TV show.   That’s really on the edge of not-all-that-rational.   But you know, after this episode, I’m really curious. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 8 recap I have this kale addiction. I eat kale salad (kale, raw garlic, sea salt, olive oil, lemon juice) like three times a week.  It makes me happy, even as it horrifies the other members of my household. (Lainey: and me, her part-time roommate) But I might be done. Full Story

Puppet Jax, Clay’s self doubt, and oh Juice

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 7 recapI asked Lainey after last week, did Jax used to do things?  She said that in fact he did – that he’d been neutered this season. And that got me thinking: what has to happen for you to be neutered? What happens when you stop doing things and start just reacting to what’s around you?  This week was about everyone making hero moves and getting egg smashed on their faces for their trouble. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy recap Season 4 Episode 6 Remember last week, when Juice stole a brick of coke like a teenager?  We’re back in the back-truck area,  and Juice tries to do the whole best-defense-good-offense thing to explain why there’s a missing brick.   He does, of course, get jumped on by one of the Mayans but Jax pulls him off. Full Story

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 4 recap When I last talked to Lainey about this show, I told her “I don’t know how I’m supposed to feel about these people’’ but that I like Gemma. She responded with “wait ‘til she really starts to do some f-cked up sh*t”. I have this feeling today is the day…Anyway, you remember what’s been going on with the weapons delivery and whatnot, right? And how Jax wants out and Clay promises that’s OK? And how running drugs passed at church, 6-5? Tara wakes up to find Jax scribbling some notes, but he’s cagey about what they are. Full Story
