It’s not your best friend. They’ll tell you what you want to hear, not what you need to know. It’s likely a business colleague. One who might not even truly be a friend. Who’s a bit more than an acquaintance. Who knows the parameters. Who will help you out. Some will want payback because that’s the game they play. They’ll help you out so you’ll help them out, when they need it. Others do it out of the goodness of their heart.
Those with wisdom have experience and in the end you’ll need their advice, or you’re lost.
I question where Mr. Sutter looked for guidance, on the Season 5 premier because it beamed us directly into the aftermath of an over-the-top hedonistic tryst that was quickly followed-up with shock-and-awe violence that would horrify any popcorn eating audience into dazed disbelief.
Really Mr. Sutter? REALLY.
You can’t quantify wisdom because it’s not something you put on the wall, it’s something you gain, through insight.
Yeah, I get starting a new TV season off with some controversy, but did anyone else think the shock mongering (dismemberment and immolation) went too far? Was that necessary or needed? Has the show truly come down to keeping the buzz fresh with “shock-till-you-drop” antics for horror M/C fans?
What’s next? A scene where Jax’s kids are playing with abused and “Battered Barbies”… Sure it’s a kids toy, but why not freak out people in a negative way for TV ratings?!
And always on the lookout to appeal to women riders and the opportunity to associate with dirty cops, domestic violence and retaliation killings, Harley-Davidson announced a new contest for fans of the show. SOA enthusiasts are invited to visit HERE through November 19, 2012 and leave feedback on which actor of Sons of Anarchy they would like to ride with, where they would like to ride and which activities they would do at that destination.
I wonder if the contest will include a visit to Nero Padilla’s (Jimmy Smits) modern day business?
