Sons Of Anarchy: The Final Season (aka Season Seven/2014/AMC/Fox Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B+ Episodes: B+

AMC is right behind HBO when it comes to exceptional programming with such hits as Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Sons of Anarchy. All good things must come to an end, as this is the final season of Kurt Sutter's explosive action drama. If you are unfamiliar with the premise, Sons of Anarchy centers on the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in Charming, a fictional town in California's Central Valley. The show centers on protagonist Jackson (Jax) Teller (Charlie Hunnam of Pacific Rim fame), the president of the club, who begins questioning the club and himself.

Season Seven picks up about 2 weeks after the events that led to Tara's death at the hands of Gemma Teller. Jax is in jail, obviously reeling from the sudden loss of his true love and anchor to all that is good. He starts off by making new alliances and shaking up the old ones in pursuit of his wife's killers - as Gemma has given him intel on who did it. Juice is in hiding and desperately wants to gain redemption with his club as he is lost without them. The club is behind Jax all the way and, as always, proving loyalty through many ups and downs. Gemma is fighting her own demons in coping with what she did and all is not on the level with her. Jax's oldest son is growing up... some might say a little too fast due to what he has to deal with and what he discovers.

Totaling 791 minutes, the TV-MA-rated show looks splendid in a crisp MPEG-4 AVC codec with a 1080p high definition transfer with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 - which is the TV standard. The soundtrack is crisp with a lossless English DTS-HD Master Audio (MA) 5.1 track on all episodes that sound even better than it did on television.

Extras include...

Audio Commentary on Straw featuring Kurt Sutter, Paris Barclay and Jimmy Smits.

Anarchy Afterword - Season Premiere

Deleted Scenes

Anarchy Afterword - The Mad King features guests Kurt Sutter, Theo Rossi, Tommy Flanagan and Parks and Rec's Retta.

Audio Commentary on A Mother's Work featuring Kurt Sutter, Paris Barclay, Maggie Siff and Katey Sagal.

Gag Reel

Anarchy Afterword - Season Finale features Kurt Sutter, Katey Sagal and Maggie Siff.

The Reaper Calls - documents the rather alarmingly high body count of this season.

Sons for Sandy is a cool piece on New Jersey native Sutter's service project after the devastating hurricane.

All in all, Fox has done a great job with this release and it is a must for fans of the series or fans that like gritty, nail-biting drama coming to an end.
