Randomly decided to watch Justified seeing it on Stan. Finished it today after about a month. Consistently strong, often excellent, always fun. Raylan was too good at everything, Boyd was too lucky and the bad guys often went out pretty easily, but all faults were covered by excellent writing, acting (and casting) and the general levels of entertainment. The best of it, especially seasons 2 and 3 where they got away from bad-guy-of-the-week formula, is as good as I've seen.
Brilliant ending too. The finale as a whole was a little too neat and rushed, but that tends to be the story with most. But that moment in the prison, perfect. Sentimental no doubt, but for a show that did a pretty solid effort of steering clear of that kind of thing, I think it can be allowed.
Of course. But my point is, even when he was beat up in a bar fight, he went back and told the two blokes that the next time he would be sober and they acted all worried. Just too cool and too badass. Part of the charm though.well yes, but that's part and parcel of bar fighting, isn't it?
Yeah I think Martindale, who is generally the standout in whatever she does, is probably the highlight of the villains gallery. Sam Elliot on paper was just made for the show, but I think his character came off as a little forced.Yes, great show.
Really loved Mags Bennett played by Margo Martindale in season 2. Got an Emmy for that role.
Her sons, however, would have to be among the most dimwitted guys in the history of TV.
If you started watching it after the first episode, you missed the greatest opening scene of all time. To be honest, it may not be but I can’t think of anything else right now.A prime candidate for a re-watch for sure. I never saw all of it, but liked what I saw and continued watching. I really should see it properly from the beginning. It has more in common with The Shield than just Goggins; good characters and good writers.
