I Admit it: I Love Sons of Anarchy

On the occasion of the fourth season finale tonight I am coming out and admitting to my deep affection for the TV show Sons of Anarchy. This might seem a bit off based on what I usually write about, but my TV watching is very different from my movie watching. I watch a lot of male centric and crime shows on TV. I'm a big fan of Criminal Minds and you can't find a Law and Order I won't watch.
