'Mayans' picks up 'Sons of Anarchy's' brutal baton

"Sons of Anarchy" ran seven seasons on FX, which helps explain why its spinoff, "Mayans M.C.," doesn't appear interested in reinventing the wheel; rather, this new biker-gang series seeks to replicate the earlier show's visceral appeal with a predominantly Hispanic cast, exhibiting some of the same strengths and all of the brutal excesses.
