You want to know what we really learned from this week’s episode of Sons of Anarchy? We learned that Kurt Sutter does not f**k around. When his season-long plans were scuttled due to Donal Logue’s scheduling conflicts, and the subsequent (and abrupt) death of Lee Toric, Kurt Sutter did not reset. He did not pull back and recalibrate. He didn’t slow it down and develop some new plot threads. He did a quick substitution (CCH Pounder for Donal Logue), and then he plowed on through, throwing another extra-long episode at us that culminated in perhaps the most disturbing sequence in A SHOW FULL OF DISTURBING SEQUENCES, and then buttoned the episode with a gauntlet that said: THE WAR IS ON, MOTHERF#@$#%S. Your Musical Montage Moment of the Week — Typically, Kurt Sutter likes to hold the musical montage until the end of the episode, which usually culminates in yet another traumatic murder, but they changed it up this week, leading the episode with the montage, and setting the tone for the rest of the episode. I remember him doing this once last season with the episode that ended with Gemma crashing her SUV. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from an opening musical montage in Sons of Anarchy, it’s that if there’s a scene with one of the kids sleeping, then WATCH OUT KID. There was no time for grieving Otto’s death, however. A nice little nod to Chucky, and what Otto meant to him, and we’re off to the races. “If it weren’t for Otto, I wouldn’t be here,” Chucky says. And if it weren’t for Chucky, nobody in SAMCRO would be around after last night’s events, so Otto, by virtue of saving Chucky, actually saved all of SAMCRO. I’m Letting You Tap My Mom, That’s Gotta Be Worth Something — There had been some friction brewing between Jax and Nero, and that very well may come to a head soon. The District Attorney is now pushing Eli Roosevelt to arrest Nero and even turn Tara on SAMCRO, so that she can pin the school shooting on the club. Eli had to wait for the lab results, however, on the prostitute’s DNA, which of course only came when it was convenient to the plot. (The lab results will be in tomorrow. The lab results will be in later today. The lab results will be in in a few hours. Wait? Nero is in a convenient place where I can witness the destruction of SAMCRO’s clubhouse? THE LAB RESULTS ARE IN!) Anyway, the Nero storyline was mostly a stall, although with Eli snooping around, Robocop got his robo-knickers in a twist, and threatened to boot SAMCRO out of the Stockton whore business if the case heats up. Well guess what? THE CASE HEATED UP. Also, this is the look of a man who just realized that his prostitute girlfriend is banging Jax for free. I’m going to jail. I have to face that reality — The plausibility of the Tara/Gemma/Wendy plotline is a bit more of a stretch than I’d like it to be. I mean, first of all, it was a little too convenient that Otto’s death actually made Tara’s imprisonment more likely, although they managed to make some sense of it by suggesting that Otta killed Toric on behalf of SAMCRO, and therefore, Otto must have also killed Toric’s sister under orders from the club, which implicates Tara. The catch that’s not discussed, however, is that neither SAMCRO nor Tara, nor anyone else, had any connection whatsoever to Toric’s sister until Otto killed her. What’s the motive, other than a random act of Otto’s crazy? But even looking past that, the Wendy situation is hinky. Tara hated Wendy. Gemma really hated Wendy, now all of a sudden, both Tara and Gemma are buddying up to her. Don’t forget that both Gemma and Tara, at various times, have threatened Wendy’s life, so it’s especially strange for Gemma to be saying how much she loves Wendy, and how good she and Jax were together, and blah blah blah, we sure

Actor Alec Baldwin talks to Politico about his new MSNBC program “Up Late,” which starts Friday. Baldwin is blunt about how the show came about, including hesitations he had before signing the deal. “I wasn’t that wild about that idea because MSNBC — which I’m a fan of — it had a certain stamp that I wasn’t sure I wanted to wear. It is this harshly political thing and, regardless of my own politics, I wasn’t sure I wanted to dine out on that,” Baldwin said. He also wants to create a show that doesn’t look like your typical cable news program. “In a Paul Verhoeven movie, when you cut to the news in, like ‘RoboCop,’ you’re in some futuristic world where all of the sudden we’re going to show the news on TV, and the news is on some almost Vegas-like set, shiny, sparkly.” Instead, he’d love to have something akin to Charlie Rose’s simple setup, but don’t expect that either. “I wanted to do that, and MSNBC is not going to do that,” Baldwin said.

Have you ever heard the doorbell ring late at night, or during the day, stopped what you were doing to walk to the door to be confronted by a nosy neighbor, salesperson, or general pest? With today’s technology for less than $100 you can get a camera and a cheap T.V. and then see who is at the door. But why stop at just ignoring this invasion of your time. For those pesky phone calls we had answering machines that you could have any message you wanted on them. People that knew you laughed and left a message, some never listened but you could avoid those you did not want to answer. Then came along caller I.D. furthering this trend to ignore these pests. Well why not an automated doorbell answering device. You hear the bell, check the camera, see it is an unwanted visitor and decide which message to send them via a speaker at the door. For myself I have a neighbor that comes at all hours of the night to ask for a smoke. Wanting to really get the shock and awe thing going to get the message across why not have some flashing lights, (green and yellow) a cheap alarm siren with a mechanical ROBOCOP like voice giving this message, “Warning visitor not recognized, turn around, put your head between your legs and kiss your &^# goodbye!” * Then a countdown tone beeping, for say ten seconds, with the lights going nuts and siren wailing and such. I called the Police and checked they do not consider my warning a threat, but did enjoy a good laugh. Also you cannot use red and blue lights but any other colors are acceptable. Okay let the games begin.

Way back in 2009, somehow we missed that Emmanuel Benbihy was producing another anthology film in the same vein as Paris, je t'aime and New York, I Love You. This time, the project is Rio, I Love You (or Rio, eu te amo), and the title clearly indicates where we are headed this time. At the time, a roster of directors wasn't revealed, but in the THR report about Jason Isaacs joining Fury, it also states that he will star in one of the segments in Rio, I Love You. Specifically, he will star in the segment from Guillermo Arriaga, writer and producer of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's films Babel, 21 Grams and Amores Perros. ››› Continue reading 'City of God' & 'RoboCop' Directors Find Anthology 'Rio, I Love You'

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't play a game, but they still suck. SB Nation has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the 31st team in the NFL. Greg Schiano got his wish, shipping off counterculture revolutionary Josh Freeman. He will not rest until all of the tomfoolery in America's strip club capital is erased. He was insistent in a call with the poor season ticket holders, all three of them, that he was RoboCop. He still has Peter King on his side, just not his players. 30th is a much more common ranking, apparently. Of the SB Nation team blogs, Behind The Steel Curtain, Mile High Report, Revenge of the Birds, Cincy Jungle, The Phinsider and Blogging the Boys all have the Bucs 30th. Bleeding Green Nation and Big Blue View have them 29th. Nationally, they're more commonly ranked 31st, as with ESPN, Fox Sports and CBS Sports. This shouldn't be a surprise, of course. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are one of four winless teams, and they've had so much drama heaped on them in past weeks that they're bound to look bad. But they may also be the best of the four winless teams. They have one of the best defenses in the NFL, and that alone should place them squarely above the Steelers and Giants. For that to happen the Bucs will first have to go out and win some games, though.
