The 50 Best TV Dramas of All Time

Network: FX

When one sees a grizzled biker gang ride by on their hogs, thoughts of classic Shakespearean tragedies aren't what typically come to mind—images of Jack Daniels and bourbon bottles, on the other hand, probably do materialize.

Kurt Sutter, a veteran of The Shield with a theater background, found Hamlet in Harley-Davidson riders, however, and in that spirit he created FX's Sons Of Anarchy, a crazy violent yet dramatically sound look at the bonds and rifts within California's SAMCRO biker squad. —MB
