I have to give Sons a watch through soon. I watched a few discs of Season 1 and long time ago and kinda liked it, but didn't bother finishing it. Same thing with The Shield which supposedly is REALLY good. The Shield felt like Oz in that, I could see how at the time they were probably pretty shocking and edgy, but now they felt slightly corny. Watching Oz now is hilarious because it has the opposite "familiar actor" thing that SoA has - they're all WAY younger and most of them I know from Law and Order first.
The Summoner Wars app is good but even on the iPad it's kinda hard for me to see. Must be the grid size or something. It's fun to try out all these new factions.
