So, now that I'm all caught right up to the end of S4 of Sons of Anarchy, I've started in on the first season of Justified, which I am enjoying so much - the writing is making me laugh for all the *right* reasons.

So how come, when there are shows as well-written and well-characterised as SoA and Justified to watch, how come I've got myself all twisted up by a police procedural where the writers dropped the ball with the characterisation of one of the main leads (for the first third of the season, anyway) and completely failed to make a major new character anything other than completely two-dimensional and uninteresting?

I love H50, but I have to say that (for me, anyway) the quality of the character writing this season has been decidedly patchy to say the least, and when I watch shows that get it right it really hammers that home to me.

Quote from the creator, Kurt Sutter, that made me go "Yes!", because it's what I've been seeing:

"To me, the interesting thing is that at the end of the day, we’re telling this story about this hardcore motorcycle club, but I’m realizing more and more for me, I’m really telling it through the eyes of the women."

I didn't watch this show for so long because I was leery of how a show about a biker gang could possibly depict women. But the key female characters are some of the strongest characters in the show - in fact some of the strongest in anything I'm watching right now.
