Hello, and welcome to the Sons of Anarchy forum. There are a few changes in the rules when a show goes from a single-thread to a multi-thread forum.
  • If you have spoilers or want to discuss them, we now have a separate thread for that. No need to use spoiler bars, either! Since spoilers have their own thread, there should be no spoiler talk in other threads (episode and character threads, for example).
  • If you want to discuss previews, or speculate on the direction the show will be taking, take that to the Speculation thread. Keep it out of the episode thread, please.
  • Feel free to start new threads. I've started a few to get us going, but I'm sure we will have more to discuss. Just make sure you are following TWoP thread naming convention, which is Thread Title: Snarky Description here. Also, don't feel you have to put a snarky description in if you can't think of one. We can always add one later.
  • I'll be setting up time-locked threads for the upcoming episodes, but if there is an older episode you want to discuss, feel free to start a thread for it. Be sure to use the Episode button so that you get the formatting right.
If you have any questions for me about the forum, please post them here. You may also PM or email me with any concerns you many have.

Hey there, friendly mod! I'm a newbie on the forums, and I've read the Do's and Don'ts page, but I've got a question still - being that I am so new on the boards, is there a waiting period before I'm able to start new threads? If so, would you let me know the general period of time I'll have to wait? I'd love to start a thread for Juice, but I keep getting an error message saying I don't have permissions to do it.

Thanks!

Sisera, once the member designation under your name changes from Just Tuned In to Channel Surfer (which will happen after you’ve made your tenth post), then you will be able to start threads and use the site’s Private Messaging system. The FAQ also has a section on how to start a thread, which you may find helpful.

If the times on the board are an hour off for you, your board clock probably has not been reset since the time change on Sunday. Click on the TWoP Forums link at the top of any forum page. Going to that page should reset your clock, and let the episode thread open at the proper time for you.

If that doesn't work (it should), try logging off and back on.

If any of you are still having trouble after trying either of the above methods, Strega has another way to reset your TWoP clock:

Go to the Control Panel.
Select "Board Settings."
Uncheck the "Is daylight savings time in effect?" box
Click the "Change My Account Options" button at the bottom of the screen.

(If you had the auto-correct DST selected you probably have been off for a while and are finally okay now, but if not, uncheck that as well.)

I've stayed up until 2:00 a.m. three nights in a row to get through a marathon session of Seasons 1 and 2 Sons of Anarchy on Netflix. Now I'm ready for season 3 and Netflix says it isn't available! Arrgh!

I checked Hulu and the FX website, and they're only showing episodes 6-10 online. Can anybody tell me where I can catch up on the first few episodes of season 3? Thanks!

You could buy them on iTunes. The DVDs for Season 3 will probably be available on Netflix or rerun on FX as we get closer to the start of Season 4.

I’m going to see if we can get a separate sub-forum set up for all of the character threads. Any suggestions for what it should be called, and what the blurb underneath should say?

Hmm, how about 'Patches, Prospects and Old Ladies - oh my'. Too corny, yeah okay.

Our new character sub-forum, The Sidecar, has been set up, and all the character threads have been moved there.

I think there was a character thread for Happy in the General Gabbery that wasn't moved over.

You’re right. Thanks for spotting that. Happy is now moved.

Bentley, if you have Xfinity, try the On Demand feature. It should be showing season 3 as a "Oh, boy, it's almost here!" promo for Season 4.

Not sure if it matters but FX.com has 4x01 listed as simply "Out" not "Out of the Chute".

You’re right. I typed "Out," but autofill added in the rest (which was the title of a House episode I started a few months ago) and I didn’t even notice. Thanks.

I tweaked the Season Four thread title from "What Do We Want From It?" to "The Season Thus Far," so that we’d have a place to discuss the season as a whole. Have at it!

Since this show deals A LOT with guns, I thought maybe we could have a gun control thread to discuss thoughts on that topic and how it affects this show?

I've asked to have the Race and Gender issues thread unarchived, and I will change the thread title to Social Issues and include them all. It usually only takes a couple of days to reopen the thread. Thanks for asking.

Okay, the tweaked thread is back open. And just for future reference, don't feel you need to ask before starting a thread. All I ask is that you look over existing threads closely to make sure yours wouldn't be a duplicate. If I think it's too specific, or too general to work as a thread, I'll make changes afterward. 

 

If a thread you are interested in is archived, please post it here and I'll ask to have it reopened. Thanks.

Done. 


I did move it over to The Sidecar, though, since that's where the character threads are.
