Watch Sons of Anarchy

The television series Sons of Anarchy is written about a motorcycle club located in California. They are a gun-running club that takes over the town of Charming. The club goes by the nickname of SAMCRO, or Sam Crow. It stands for Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original.

The club originated when John Teller and Piney Winston came home from Viet Nam. They rode their bikes across the United States, from town to town, until John's wife got pregnant. Gemma, who is played by Katey Segal, grew up in the town of Charming, California, so when Gemma was pregnant, they settled there. Once there, Gemma gave birth to Jax.

The show starts after the death of John, with Jax grown and vice president of the club. John had been killed in a motorcycle accident. The show stars Ron Perlman as Clay Morrow, who is not only married to Gemma, but is president of the Sons. The show follows Charlie Hunnam, who plays Jackson Teller, who goes by the name Jax. It follows not only him but the club, as at the start they are against hard drugs and working to keep drug dealers out of Charming. The Sons have control of the town not only through bribery and intimidation, but also through close community relationships.

The show centers on the family life of the club members, with Jax the main focus. Jax is torn between loyalty to the club and his love for his wife and children. During the show, Jax discovers that Clay had caused his father's death; the show then takes a turn when Jax sets out to avenge his father's death. When his son is kidnapped, Jax takes off after him. Jax is reunited with his son and marries his ex-girlfriend, Dr. Tara Knowles-Teller, played by Maggie Siff. Jax and Tara had met again when his ex-wife took an overdose. After landing in the hospital, she gives birth to Jax's son ten weeks early. The baby, having been born early and with heart defects, has Tara as his doctor.

All of the members of the club have jobs. Most of them work as mechanics at Clay's garage. The garage, the club house and Clay's house are all in the same compound. While working as mechanics, they also customize guns, which they sell. When not doing this, they make protection runs. These protection runs are for members of the community who needs help keeping their trucks from being hijacked.

The Sons all ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles which have been customized to fit their individual personalities. The majority of the bikes are Dyna Super Glide Sports, a model which did not last long on the market. The bikes are all painted black with the club's logo, the Grim Reaper, somewhere on it. The name of the club, Sons of Anarchy, are also on the bike. It is only the full club members who are allowed to paint their bikes black; prospects are not allowed to.

The vests that the members wear also have the Grim Reaper logo on them, along with the name of the club. The Grim Reaper is holding a crystal ball with the letter A for Anarchy on it. Instead of the scythe, there is an M16 rifle. Once again, only full members can wear the patch; prospects have to earn to earn the right to wear it.

Although the show has guns and drugs, it is more about the relationships the members have not only with other club members but with members of their family as well as the people in Charming. It deals with trust, what happens when trust is broken between brothers, between family members and between people of the town. The club members consider themselves brothers. It shows how a family deals with being part of the club because if their husband, son, or brother is a member, they too are considered part of the clubs family.
