The shows creator Kurt Sutter is a insane genius. He had the perfect amount of biker bad-ass, and a love story. He had a vision for what he wanted SOA to be and he followed true to that until the end. SOA always gets snubbed when it comes to award shows, I guess many people just can't handle such awesomeness. (: He ultimately ended the series after 7 seasons, which was his original goal. I think he ended it at the perfect time, he didn't run the show into the ground before he ended it, but left it where everyone still loved it and didn't want it to go, but they understood. My number one favorite show (along with The Walking Dead).
