Watched the second episode and am dissapointed. The show is missing something. It’s just a little boring and slow. Not sure if it’s the storyline but it’s no SoA that’s for sure.
I do laugh at EZ and his attempted swagger...Jax was loose and laid back, whilst EZ looks like he’s walking around the gym with the chest puffed out. I must admit I dont know many Mexicans, but I feel like they overplay the accent.This crew has no charisma
At least with SOA (which IMO the first two Seasons were the best) the variety of characters and the strength of acting had the audience captured quickly
These guys are card board cut outs placed over the top of many SOA story arc blueprints
I read an interesting article last night with sutter explaining how he hadn’t even planned on bringing back Potter. Apparently his other writers came into a meet and said we want to bring him back and Sutter said his a head just exploded (or something to that effect). Such a great character. It was the same with the character that killed Mrs Reyes, it wasn’t planned from the beginning to have that character be the one to have done it.Yeah I felt it really took off with Lincoln Potter. Wonderful actor McKinnon. Memorable in Deadwood too. I think the direction is of a better quality than the final couple of seasons of SOA with the storyline but not with the direction regarding utilizing the actors. It feels like the show lacks charismatic interesting characters. Angel is good and Coco is interesting tho.
I guess that's why Potter was so compelling when he came in. It was a fair Ace to play from Sutter. Fine finale hopefully they simplify the storyline a bit and get back to the MC itself next season. Happy Ending lol.
Agreed. I like all the non Mayans characters and the job the actors/actresses have done playing those parts. Was a bit disappointed with Devante’s death, mainly because I like Tony Plana. Felipe, Miguel, Emily and Adilita are all excellent characters. We’ll get to know Bishop a bit more next season apparently. So that’s something, I guess.Yeah they haven’t done a good job at making you get attached to the Mayans like angel is good coco is easily the best I was also waiting for ez to bang his daughter
But other then Bishop/angel/coco none of them feel fleshed out other then Alvarez who obviously has had heaps more time.
Thought the actor playing Galindo did a good job as well
Feel like he probably only agreed to do one season that or it makes sense for Galindo to be more ruthless he allows his father figure to be killedAgreed.

Agree about the other Mayans. Taza and Riz are two characters they could explore more. Both Raoul Trujillo and Antonio Jaramillo are two guys who are established actors and have been around for a while.Feel like he probably only agreed to do one season that or it makes sense for Galindo to be more ruthless he allows his father figure to be killed
Yeah but from what I have seen so far I’ve enjoyed Bishop sure he ain’t clay but still enjoyable the other main guys at the table are boring.
Will be good to see where the potter arc goes
They also spent a bit of time on Felipe’s past I expect more to come from it next season
