SONS OF ANARCHY
FX, 10:00 p.m. ET
Last week’s installment of this series dropped my jaw lower than any TV moment this season, thanks to an unbilled, unforgettable guest appearance by Walton Goggins, who’s done such fantastic work already on Justified and The Shield. Reteaming with Kurt Sutter, one of the former writer-producers of The Shield, Goggins showed up playing a transgender escort named Venus Van Damme, who figures in the motorcycle club’s blackmail efforts for a city councilman. Goggins, as Venus, was so outrageous and yet so grounded, so playful and yet so serious, that the character simply has to make a return appearance. Shane, Boyd and now Venus. How has this guy not won a Supporting Actor Emmy yet?
