Wasnt too shabby, I was hoping for a little more lead in as to whos who, but they sure started things off with a bang!  With the new AUSA setting up camp things should take a few new spins.

I have a college friend who I recently found on Facebook.  During the time since I saw him last (30 years), he said he became very involved with a club such as this. He says it is "scary" how accurate this show is.  Like the writers had inside guys.  I have never found out how he got out of the club, I still need to ask him about it someday.

I DVR'd last years season ender and watched that last night. I wanted to refresh my memory. I watched about half of the new before getting sleepy and hitting the hey. So far so good.

From the commercials, I don't see the appeal.  Also, looks like it doesn't help our reputation as riders.
Sopranos didn't help our family either ;)

It was fine for a return season.
I don't know why I didn't really remember the end of last season.
Other than the Fed woman's outcome.
I remembered that part. :)

The producer (Katey Sagal's real life husband who plays Otto) spent time with the Hell's Angels while doing the research and developement for the show.  Also the reason they were able to get Sonny Barger to play a part (although a small one).

Off Topic but as some of y'all know that I made a very hard choice to walk away from several friendships a while back because a friend was trying too hard to have our riding group emulate SOA as well as have associations with not only HA but AN too. This Sunday I'll be getting back together with a couple of friends who have realized that the club was not worth its cost, Truth be known 8 of the original 10 members of the riding group have pulled away and the club is all but history. The so called Pres of this club was so nutz about SOA that he all but stated that watching it was compulsory.

Tony,

I hope that it doesn't sound like I'm sticking my nose into your business but you brought it up, so...

Emulate SOA in what way, as in illegal activities and such?

Sounds like the Pres has some mental issues to me, anyone we know on this board?     :rotflmao:

SOA is a TV soap opera with a biker gang slant.  Anyone wanting to emulate that in real life.....  :nuts:

We just watched the opener last night and while it was an hour and a half long I think it was over a half hour in commercials.  Thank goodness we have fast forward.

We like it for what it is and nothing more.  We enjoy the characters and the crazy plot lines.  Got surprised again by the ending.  It drives us insane trying to figure out what they will do next.  It's kinda like this forum....  ;)

LOTS of Hardly commercials! SERIOUSLY stupid HD commercials too IMO. HD needs a new ad company.

The design of the club patch was as close to SOA without being a blantant copy as it could be; even used a 3 piece rocker which is a real no no around real biker groups. Even went so far as to make up patches with 1% ers on it too. Found out that he was taking testro shots and noticed that he was becoming more aggressive so ya I'd say he was having some mental issues.
