Coming off of Netflix at the same time as the Magnificent Century is the long-running series Sons of Anarchy. Mercifully, in this case, the show remains available on Amazon Prime.

Not to dwell on the details, but alternating between Sons of Anarchy and Magnificent Century is illuminating. They are both created for broadcast (commercial) television and so episodes are of very similar length. However, that forty-some minutes seems to fly by so much faster when I’m watching Sons of Anarchy that when I’m watching Magnificent Century.

What does that say about the relative qualities of the shows? What does that say about me?
