Mayans M.C. S1-2
The spin-off of Sons of Anarchy, Mayans M.C. is set two years after the SOA story ended. (You can binge all of SOA here.) It helps to have an understanding of the organised crime business that biker gangs have become, although it’s not essential to have watched the original series.
You’ll need a strong stomach because there’s blood spilt in every episode as biker EZ (JD Pardo) infiltrates the Mayans M.C. in his quest for revenge. His affluent family in Mexico were decimated by criminal bikers and EZ wants his dues.
Living this lie – because he’d lose his head if anyone knew who he really is – is taking its toll. There’s family pressure and work pressure, and trying to make it through each day without being shot or arrested is increasingly difficult.
While it doesn’t directly follow on from Sons of Anarchy, just like the original series it’s essentially about a son trying to understand his family and the world he lives in.
“Mayans M.C. is a roaring good time that retains much of what made Sons of Anarchy so powerful, but with a mostly new cast and a refreshing new narrative,” writes Cinemablend.com. “For now, Mayans M.C. rides alongside the gold standard that is Sons of Anarchy with its fast-paced chaos.”
