to succeed his mother, but when Asa Farrell returns he brings warning
and danger of the outside world, and the Farrells are not ready or
prepared. Also, Big Foster is scared of a prophecy that foretold an
outside Farrell will return to be the next Bren'in. Asa has lived 10
year outside learned more than other give him credit for, while Big
Foster knows only how to bully and scare others, their problem is
sooner or later someone will fight back ...and it ain't gonna be nice
or anything pretty about it.
If you like Sons of Anarchy,
then you will love this series; a story of brutality, violence and
people who believe they are above the law. People fear the law, but
that is the real lie, the law should fear the people. We'll see how
the run of the show goes. David Morse, Joe Anderson and Ryan Hurst
lead the cast.
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image looks really good for this
format, though expect style choices that you may or may not like.
The lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 sound on the episodes is a mixed bag that
is uneven, but might resolve better in a lossless presentation.
Extras include deleted scenes, first season featurette, and Meet
the Farrells featurette.
