The romance is hardly dominating that show. Sons of Anarchy compacts the action and circumstance to the point of irrelevance, jading its watchers to it. Oh boy, some black dudes took a shot at Jax again, big woop.. There are plenty of Zombie movies out there that solely concentrate on action and gore. In fact there are hours and hours of character-free all-zombie-carnage highlights on YouTube. If that's all you want why bother watching the show at all.. It is these stretches that make the denser episodes more precious.. That's how it works. If the show was just not stop explosions, carnage and gore the show would be lame.
