So the saga of SAMCRO enters its third week, and I’m trying to figure out why this show isn’t cracking the barrier into “must-see” territory. To me, it’s kind of hovering in the “watchable” area. Maybe The Shield is casting its shadow further than the network thinks, especially with Jay Karnes joining the cast. Maybe it’s Katey Sagal’s habit of whispering every line she has. Maybe I know too much about the behind-the-scenes hubbub and I’m still comparing Ron Perlman to the original choice of Scott Glenn. And maybe it’s that FX sets the bar so high. I know they can’t all be Damages or Rescue Me, but maybe the impact of those shows makes it hard on the newbies. I’m not going to stop watching, but every time they run a promo for another FX show, I do get distracted.
Anyway…on to the recap…
