FX Renews Sons of Anarchy For a 5th Season
Just in case you heard incorrectly, SoA will be around for another season of 13 episodes next year.
This season currently airing has been breaking records for the network as far as ratings are concerned, especially in the 18-49 demographic that all shows want to conquer. Approximately 5.8 million viewers are checking the series out each week (up 30% over last season’s numbers, thanks no doubt to Netflix and word of mouth advertising) which made FX eager to line up more episodes of the Hamlet inspiried motorcycle gang series.
I fucking love Kurt Sutter’s shows. I was a rabid fan of The Shield and Michael Chiklis’s portral of Vic Mackey. I didn’t realize it then but the show’s success was due mostly to the amazing writing that Sutter puts into each of his shows’ episodes. SoA is no exception to this rule. It is quite possibly the best hour of television on basic cable right now.

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
