Last night the course-correcting fifth season of FX's visceral and engaging motorcycle club drama Sons of Anarchy concluded in an incredibly satisfying fashion. As series creator Kurt Sutter tells it, he envisions a seven-year saga for the show, and considering its popularity, it looks like he's going to get it (a sixth has already been ordered). Sons has five great batches of episodes to its name and even greater ratings, but, based on its lack of Emmy nominations and absence from most year-end lists, it's tough to ignore the fact that Sons of Anarchy still doesn't receive its due ranking as one of the best dramas out.

For that reason, Complex has collected the top ten elements that make the series worth watching and considering in the overall TV conversation. Faithful viewers are about to embark on a cruelly long hiatus (see you next September, SAMCRO), so if you're still a member of the uninitiated, use this time to get familiar. Let us convince you why you should with 10 Reasons Why Sons of Anarchy Is TV's Most Underrated Drama.
