If you were a fan of Sons of Anarchy during its seven-year stretch, then you are highly aware that the biker drama was not shy about dealing out adult situations like candy at Halloween. (Timely reference.) It shouldn’t come as a surprise either that there were tons of non-fans who caught episodes of the show and were horrified by all the acts seen therein, and some of them took the time to complain to the FCC over the years. And I can say with 99% certainty that the complaint seen below (original typos included) is the dumbest response that Sons of Anarchy has ever provoked.
That’s just the first part, but it’s impossible to go on without rocking back in one’s chair and guffawing at someone thinking that there’s a Sons’ character actually named Sam Crow. Maybe the person was just listening and watching through mostly-closed fingers, so he or she didn’t grasp anything that happened during the rest of the episode. But it obviously wasn’t enough to warrant changing the channel. I guess simulated blowjobs aren’t THAT insulting. SAM CROW, though! I can’t get enough of that. I guess Jax is Sam’s son?
The date on the complaint is September 22, 2009, and that matches up with the airing of the Season 2 episode “Fix,” which ends with the club going to a party at Luanne’s porn studio Cara Cara and making themselves acquainted with the talent. So at least the complainer watched the episode all the way through.
Here’s the rest of the rant.
I hate to break it to this person, but unless they’re living in a cave on the other side of the moon, that 17-year-old child has almost definitely already been exposed to all forms of sexual activity, and probably other things as well. So if that’s the only reason why this person wants to bash Fox (and not FX, the network where it aired) and get a law drafted against pornography, then maybe some things should be rethought.
You can find other complaints here, and many of them are similarly disgusted by all the sexual scenes on the show, but rare is the complaint about the excess violence and deaths. No surprise there. We can’t wait to read the things people have complained about over The Bastard Executioner.
Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
