It is time for me to stop watching the show. It is only my personal need as I can’t stomach it. It’s truly for the stronger person. The episode with Opie’s torture brought me to my knees. But I honestly was not able to sleep thinking of any of the CT parent’s watching this episode. It’s time for me to stop. I do understand the message that it’s all about the combined contributions that let to the school incident in the show, not just guns…but between that and the prison scene’s it just is too much…for me.

I have watched from the beginning. In past things made me upset but I like the actors and the drama so I continue to watch. However, after hearing about the school shooting. I will not watch it; i will delete it off my DVR. I try to be an activist to make schools safer, however, it comes with much resistance. Seeing this will only make me sicker than I already feel. Sutter – want to prove a point and do good? Put your money where your mouth is and help communities make their schools safer!

My husband and I have watched SOA together from the beginning. As a CT resident, I say with confidence, that I will never watch the show again. I sat there totally stunned and horrified. All I could do was picture the parents of those children, who lost their lives, watching as well. I do not care if this was written before Sandy Hook or if the future of the story depended on that moment. If the writer(s) are that brilliant, they could modified the story. I am really disappointed in the network for allowing this. This was a show that my husband and I could watch and enjoy together. I’m sad to lose that, however everyone has to have their line in the sand. No more SOA for this Mother.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and clearly it is just a “show” but I thought this premiere was done in poor taste. There was so much going on that it did feel overly done to hold viewer attention. The ending was just disgusting to say the least, even though there is an underlying message to the story. I’m not sure many viewers, including myself, really care about the message or the show finale after this episode. It just left you with a sick feeling. It’s unfortunate that such an amazing show is turning to sh*t.

All the whiners in these comments are hilarious. You watch a show about bikers and gangs and when the show evolves you turn away. Go back to watching American Idol or some other fluff crap then. This was an incredible episode as it just forced fed the consequences of actions. Throughout the entire series there has been a moral compromise starting with the sheriff looking the other way over guns to keep drugs out of charming. Now, here we see the consequences of those guns. The characters in this show make money selling guns, drugs and through prostitution, plus they murder people. It’s wrong to sell drugs and record women be raped, but its ok to sell guns and profit of a whore house? There is problem with what these characters do just like there is a problem in America with rampage shooting. Get your heads out of the sand and pay attention to Sutters message as it closer to home than we think.

Well spoken. America and guns its part if your heritage and culture.

If you don’t like guns, come down under. They are still banned, but we have less crazies out there shooting people. It’s just harder for them to get old of one.

It’s a sad fact of life. It shows what society has become. This is a tv show about bikies and what they do. Give Suter a chance to to show you where the show is going. Maybe, just maybe it’s in the episodes title. “Straw”. The last straw for jax and the club. A way to get them out of the gun business.

Everyone saying that they will stop watching because of this grow up. Everything Kurt does on this show serves a purpose It’s part of a story. Saying that he did it for shock value is ridiculous it’s not like he showed the kids being shot. this was necessary to begin the end of the series if you choose to stop watching over this then your loss the show will succeed without you.

Will not watch the show again. A kid shooting up an elementary school, really? What a new low! Women being raped for others to be entertained? The show is all about filth and evil. Tune into the the nightly news for this trash. Good Luck season 6.

The show just ended on it’s own violence. To end the show with the murders of those children is over the line, they crossed a line that will end the show and that is just. To make the killing of children a cliff hanger is unmentionable. Children bleeding, calling for their moms, children shot trying to crawl to safety and doing so with so much pain. The show in my opinion is trash, nothing more than violent trash. I will never watch that show again.

And think…it ended with child shootings and began with Kurt Sutter (Otto) being raped by some prison dudes. The entire episode was senseless, sensationalism. Remember when the first season aired? The big ‘controversy’ revolved around the authenticity of ‘Jax’ footwear. How did it go from that (which created a huge, loyal fan base) to becoming a show about countless anal rapes, child shootings and bad acting.

We all fell in love with this show because of its gritty, insightful look into the inner workings of a motorcycle club, something which is unknown to most people. The fans praised the politics, the love triangles, the matriarch & patriarch, the brotherhood, omerta and biker community.

I honestly hope this show goes back to its roots and remembers what it is: a small motorcycle club in a little town called Charming.

Every one has their opinion about last nights episode, no need to get mad at people for having those opinions that are different then yours. That being said, I didn’t care for last nights episode what so ever. A part of me wanted to change the channel, I called my cable provider to get this channel and agreed to pay $20 a month more just to watch this show. But after last night I feel like I don’t want to watch the show anymore. I will probably call and cancel my subscription to the super channel. That’s just my opinion.

And see that is the problem with the world. Don’t want to see it so you shut it off. But that’s you choice isn’t it. I bet you shut off the Sandy Hook coverage when it got to be ‘too much’ or it was time to go out for the evening. Seriously, grow up. It’s a TV show with a hard hitting message.

Clive, people also kill people with cars, knives, baseball bats and bare hands. That’s just a few more ways other than using guns. Yet there isn’t legislation to control those “weapons”. Hmm. People kill people. Period!

I’m a huge fan and have been from the beginning but I agree that this felt forced and overdone. Pure overkill. I think Kurt Sutter has reduced the quality of the show immensely by continuing to write gratuitous parts for himself. Why is he so invested in developing his pointless roles in the show? He’s so talented but his narcissism is starting to cast a pathetic light on the show. I’m sure he’s having fun but the rest of us aren’t that impressed with his acting. I mean what’s he thinking? What’s next? Is his goal to play every character on the show? Snore!!

What happened to the eloquent and poignant writing from the earlier episodes? What happened to the character development and underlying tension in the club? Sutter has become addicted to over dramatizing and over doing every nuance that used to give the show genuine depth and intrigue. In just one episode, he explored prison gang rape, an elementary school shooting, rape porn and countless other dramas. I miss the 1st season.

Mind telling us why, instead of just saying thumbs down? I’m curious as to why you were able to stick through season 3 (arguably the worst season) and after 1.5 hours of the new season you are deciding to discontinue with the show?

Unfortunately, I doubt it. Jax isn’t one to wait around for someone, especially 5+ years if Tara gets that felony charge. Also, when they had their wedding ceremony, Tara told Jax “This means no more screwing around”

Why did SOA have to go Hollywood and go political on us. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

All the cities in america, and in other country’s that have hard gun laws have the worst crime rates. How come they don’t publish that.

I found this first episode un called for with a hidden agenda saying the message to control guns.

We hav been watching SOA since the beginning and we buy every season and until last night enjoyed the show.

We will not be buying anything that has to do with SOA and will make sure we all tell everyone not to buy any of the sponsors items.

None of the motorcycle community is happy with this hidden agenda.

Also, don’t speak on behalf of the entire motorcycle community. You don’t share my opinions and views, so that makes you wrong by saying that the motorcycle community is against this.

Has part of the motorcycle community do me a favor and don’t speak for me….Everyone looks at this as O my God how can he do that…instead how about trying to figure out how this blows back on the club. Like is this one of the hookers sons that work for the club, was that a gun that they sold that was sold on the streets to the kid, if you truely are a fan and long time watcher you should know by now nothing happens with out a reason so get a grip.
