    Justified

    Some lighter weight violence, good dialogue, fun plot lines ...... it's growing on me.

    Agreed, definitely becoming a good show...FX has had a run of some sick new shows, SOA, Always Sunny, The League, etc. Kinda like the HBO of regular cable. But I think Justified has a lot of potential.

    I've watched a couple of episodes and still am not sold.

    Kind of bummed me out how many times they used the catch phrase "Justified" in the first episode. I have a pet peeve about TV shows and movies that feel the need to hammer the title into the audiences brain over and over again as if we've forgotten what we're watching.

    That said, I am intrigued to dig up the Elmore Leonard short story upon which this is based (and give the show props for actually having Leonard onboard as a producer and consultant).

    I'm sold on it, if for any other reason than the strength of the lead. Timothy Olyphant is cool, calm, and collected, yet has no problem swinging into extreme violence mode at the drop of a hat. Always nice to see them work a scene into every episode where he talks down to some tough guy hillbilly piece of shit, then inevitably shoots his ass.

    I liked it when Raylan got drunk in the bar, picked a fight with the two loudmouths and got his ass kicked. It wasn't his getting has ass kicked I liked so much but the fact that he played that character like he almost wanted to get whooped, and took it in stride. I certainly didn't expect that scene to come out that way.

    Love the show.

    Ditto on the good whoppin'. The best part was him going back in and asking the guy for his hat back, and saying "and this time I won't be drunk".

    Decent plot lines and fun to follow, nice spins on different characters from his ex to the resident trouble maker, I dig it.

    I like it. Not a ton of substance, but that's OK, it's high-quality TV and not every show needs to be The Wire. The ex is nice and so is Joelle Carter.

    Been an Olyphant fan since he used to do the sports on the dearly departed Indie 103 FM in Los Angeles, so I like seeing him get a break, as well.

    I liked Olyphant in Deadwood. Damn near the same character.

    I just picked up the first two seasons on DVD. I'm quite enjoying it.

    This season got off to a slow start but really picked up. I love the characters on this series.

    I'm finding it a bit overly-violent so far this season. I hope they don't go the shock value route vs. clever writing and well developed story line. It's one of the few shows I'm still watching.

    He's played the same character in just about everything he's done since Deadwood. Which is ok with me, Deadwood was top notch, and he pulled off the Bullock character perfectly.

    We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.

    Bumpin this thread up as I just discovered this show.

    I got an email from amazon telling to take advantage of the streaming I pay for with prime…. and I have watched 4.5 seasons.
    Great writing and acting, character development and filming. I just noticed last night the hot chick from Trueblood got a roll in season 5.

    Bummed it's done after season 6. Pacing myself now not to watch them all in a row.

    Olyphant is great at this role, here is a funny thing I found-

    They always bring great character actors in each season. Sam Elliot this one. Will miss it but it has run its course
