Sons of Anarchy – Venus Van Dam

August 6, 2013 // 1 Comment

With a little over one month until the premiere of SONS OF ANARCHY Season 6 (Tuesday, Sept. 10th), I am in desperate need of a little SoA fix to help stifle the anticipation. One of the best/funniest scenes of last season was from the episode “Orca Shrugged” with WALTON GOGGINS’ cameo as Venus Van Dam, a transgendered hooker hired by Jax to blackmail a Charming city council member.  This whole idea was borne from Goggins telling creator KURT SUTTER that he would play ...Click for More

Sons of Anarchy Premiere Date Set!

July 24, 2013 // 0 Comments

As I sat down tonight to start re-re-re-re-watching PITCH BLACK ahead of the third film in the franchise (RIDDICK) being released in early September, I stumbled upon an exciting press release that heralds the return of awesome TV. MIDWEST MO may or may not have just turned into a pumpkin by the mere notion of cinema invading a blog “exclusively” dedicated to television.  Even though one of the lead female roles in PITCH BLACK was played by RADHA MITCHELL who was incidentally the ...Click for More

Sons of Anarchy Season 6 Casting News

May 24, 2013 // 0 Comments

A mild flurry of casting news has come from KURT SUTTER and the SONS OF ANARCHY CAMP in the past few days as production ramps up for the sixth season of what has come to be one of the best shows on television. Before we hit the cast additions, KURT SUTTER Twitter on Tuesday to say that season 6 will be “hands down, the most violent season to date”.  Let that sink in for a second.  More violent than Opie’s terrific/terrifying death scene from last season?  I can’t ...Click for More

Huge Sons of Anarchy News!!

March 2, 2013 // 7 Comments

SONS OF ANARCHY fans rejoice… JIMMY SMITS has been confirmed to be a regular cast member for the upcoming Season 6.  This is fantastic news, as his character Nero Padilla was probably the best addition to the cast in a few seasons. Donal Logue is also confirmed to return, which I felt to be a much more obvious announcement due to his giant cache of weaponry that season 5 never addressed.  Now we can only hope that WALTON GOGGINS makes another brief appearance as the downright hilarious ...Click for More

Sons of Anarchy – J’ai Obtenu Cette

December 4, 2012 // 1 Comment

Sad day today, as the season 5 finale of SONS OF ANARCHY just ended.  Being the self-respecting man I am, I generally refuse to show emotion.  But between you and me, I am crying a little inside knowing that I need to wait approximately another 8-10 months for the opening bit to season 6. The title of the episode is French and roughly translates to “I have to have (or obtain) that.”  Contrary to popular belief, it does not stand for “did that just freaking happen?!?” ...Click for More

Sons of Anarchy – Darthy

November 27, 2012 // 2 Comments

FX’s absolute freight train of a show called SONS OF ANARCHY continues to roll on strong this week with yet another outstanding 90 minute biker gang marathon.  Advancing the story right up to the edge of pure craziness, it perfectly sets up next week’s season finale which promises to be one hell of a roller coaster ride to end this monster of a season. Full episode recap ...Click for More

Midwest Mark is Adopting a New Show… Justified!!

November 25, 2012 // 0 Comments

In the spirit of the Thanksgiving weekend bringing both sweet deals on seasons of television as well several thousand more calories than necessary, I am curling up with my recovering wife, a generous slice of French Silk pie and starting Season 1 Episode 1 of JUSTIFIED. Both of my brother-in-laws and several of my co-workers talk very highly of this show, and I’ve always been a pretty big fan of TIMOTHY OLYPHANT (who strangely enough had a guest spot on SESAME STREET the other day). ...Click for More

Entertainment Weekly Loves Sons of Anarchy

Can you tell how much I love being on vacation?  I never get to post during the day time.  This is fantastic (for me anyway, you might be pretty sick of me and are probably wishing that I go back to work already). Photo courtesy of Entertainment Weekly ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY gave SONS OF ANARCHY their cover this week and they are doing an in-depth story on the show as they near the end of a very crazy season 5. Some people keep telling me that we are wasting our time covering SONS on our blog. ...Click for More

Midwest Mark’s Video of the Week – Sons of Anarchy

November 17, 2012 // 0 Comments

In celebration of my 50th post here at MWTVG (queue cricket noises), I found a mashup of Opie scenes from this season of SONS OF ANARCHY.  For those of you out there in cyberspace who are lucky enough to have stumbled upon our blog for the first time and are not caught up on Sons of Anarchy season 5, major spoilers lie ahead.  I’m even hiding the video behind the jump so it doesn’t ruin what ended up being the best 4 episode run of the show.

Sons of Anarchy

What a great episode tonight.  Who didn’t feel terrible for Otto (did you know BTW that Otto is played by the shows creator and show runner Kurt Sutter?  Now you know)?  I’m sure that like me, you were thinking that all that time he was going to really hurt Tara but instead we saw that he is just a completely broken man that has lost everything.  I’d bet that he recants his story which will clear the club of the RICO case.  If that happens, the Feds won’t have any ...Click for More

Sons of Anarchy – Andare Pescare

November 6, 2012 // 0 Comments

In an uncomfortably ‘self-gratifying’ episode, The Sons hunt down Frankie Diamonds, Gemma continues to be torn between Nero and Clay, Tara pays Otto another visit and Jax figures out who snitched on the club. Overall alot slower than the past several episodes, although the scenes with Clay/Juice/Frankie/Jax more than satisfied my weekly need for biker gang violence. By the way, how uncomfortable would it be to ask your mother to stop sleeping with her boyfriend and start sleeping ...Click for More

SOA – A Perspective

October 30, 2012 // 1 Comment

Happy slightly belated anniversary to the Midwest TV Guys.  A month ago the world was changed forever.  Two months from now the world is slated to end.  Coincidence?  I think maybe. SONS OF ANARCHY continues to fire on every one of its two cylinders tonight (Harley humor FTW!!) with Jax’s cool continuing to unravel, Gemma digging herself deeper into trouble and the hatred between Clay and Nero (and Clay + everyone else for that matter) about to reach a tipping point. This season has ...Click for More

Tuesday Evening…

Special side-note:  being one of the top three writers on MWTVG (at least until somebody else starts contributing) is no simple job, but this Midwest Guy is up to the challenge for you, our loyal fan.  Thank you, mom… you birthed a legend. Pretty slow night as far as my television tastes are concerned.  Perusing through the network TV selections, I have no idea what any of those shows are nor do they sound interesting.  There’s something important about naming a show effectively ...Click for More
