This show is just "okay". -- And while I know it's inspired by the Australian crime-drama, Animal Kingdom (2010), I can't help but see how it parallels with Sons of Anarchy, a show that began in 2008 and ended in 2014. AK's opening credits even features a montage of tattooed bodies -- similar to SOA opening titles. *No Spoilers* Animal Kingdom tries desperately to be a gritty, macho, controversial crime drama, but falls just short of an unsophisticated, less inspired kin to Sons of Anarchy. SOA is one of my favorite shows, ever. As a woman of color, who leans slightly toward the title of feminist, this may come as a shock to some. But, unlike Animal Kingdom-- which currently lacks strong, smart, and crafty female characters -- SOA had a beautifully woven architecture of complex relationships, poeticism, and coming of age stories that were grounded in actual heartbreaking character development. In other words, we somehow came to care about the baby mommas, and the stomach-churning addicts. So far, AK as done little to make me want to care about the protagonist's (Josh/ "J") journey within this abysmal family. With knockoff Gemma Teller (Smurf) manipulating what's left of his shattered youth, it's hard to see how "J" could become a character worth adoring. The show wants to pick-up where SONS left off. It wants you to take it seriously, it also wants you to know that it can provocative, bloody, messy and sometimes a little violent. What it doesn't want is to be interesting, or remarkable at all -- even the cinematography is, meh. Animal Kingdom just wants to be "okay", a good summer fling on a cool Tuesday night. While I'm watching these grown men bully a young, teenage boy, I'm wondering, when will they grow up? Will it take all of season 1? Season 2? Or will we forever have to watch these "man-babies" be coddled by their mother (you know, the wanna-be Gemma Teller)? I'll admit that I have not seen the source material, but it seems that watching it may be a more satisfying expereince than the series. Nevertheless, I'm hoping the show grows up a bit overtime and can separate itself from those that have done this genre better.

It's getting better with each episode starting to get into it well worth a visit

A very promising TV show.

Amazing show, just needs more seasons

Fantastic show and holds up the high standards of the Australian movie. [spoiler]No more Smurf but I say no more problems[/spoiler]

Really good show. Ellen Barkin is excellent. Every few episodes there's a caper that usually entails some kind of Point-Break-esque stunt or stunts.

Think Sons of Anarchy with the bikers replaced by a family of young surfers. My problem is that unlike in SOA, the main charachters are just bad guys with very few redeeming qualities. They are not very likable and very hard to root for. In SOA at least, the gang was supposedly keeping the streets clean, and also they were fighting other gangs. Here? they are just the worst and you end up rooting for the cops, which I don't think is intended.

Really like that serie, everyone have something to hide, threatening each other for cash. Well, I like this kind of serie, every season we have a surprise. Can't wait season 4 !

avatar

getting worse every episode, pretty bad show.

avatar

I liked it a lot!,especially after season 1 ,I will give it 4 and a half stars! LOL

avatar

Level "Excellent" • 8 :heart: • Recommended.

I really hate these flash backs. They've just ruined the show for me. Not sure I'll even finish watching season 5. I skipped through them in season 4. Didn't know they were going to be persistent.

avatar

It was very good from the first, now with more history unfolding its must be amongst Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul

avatar

Ellen Barkin is a demented far left, hateful person, but this show is very good!

Not my normal type of show, tried numerous like it such as SOA but couldn’t get in to them. But, this had me hooked from the start. I’m late to the party to watch it, and surprised I’ve no one seems to know about it. A hidden gem I’m my opinion.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
