'Sons of Anarchy' introduces appisodes
Now the cable network is introducing a "Sons of Anarchy" mobile app to fill in the blanks of SAMCRO's complicated history.
Introduced Monday, and available through iTunes for iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch, each "appisode" delves into the sordid past, present and future of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Originals, a.k.a. SAMCRO, including John Teller's vision for the club and how this small-town California MC came to run guns for the IRA in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Appisode 01 will be released Nov. 8 and explain "Why is Belfast relevant." Appisode 02 is to be "The History of SAMBEL." Coming soon are "Who's who in Belfast" and "Locations around Belfast."
Appisodes will be added each Monday and Wednesday.
According to the video introduction from show creator Kurt Sutter, the appisodes are "an insider's glimpse of the SOA mythology from Charming to Belfast" that fill in "the MC history, character back story and the details of the large narrative arcs my writers and I draw upon to create the show. I think you'll dig it. If not, what the hell, it was only a buck."
