Parents Television Council Blasts Sons Of Anarchy

The return of the cable-TV drama Sons of Anarchy may have set ratings records for the FX channel, but it has also brought down the wrath of the conservative Parents Television Council on the network. The group sent out a news release on Thursday saying that it had called on its members to contact their congressional representatives and demand that consumers be given the choice of selecting the channels they wished to subscribe to. What FX chose to show -- a scene of a young boy murdering innocent children in a school with a semi-automatic gun -- is enough of a reason for consumers to have The Choice not to underwrite such horrifically violent and disturbing material, the PTC said. Consumers are forced to subsidize cable networks like FX just to get access to networks they do watch. In an interview with TheWrap.com, series creator Kart Sutter insisted that he was aware that the scene of the shooting would be controversial. However, he maintained, Nothing is done gratuitously, that the events that happen in the premiere are really the catalyst for the third act of this morality play we're doing.
