A wee while back Iain recommended a new TV Series to me,it,s called Justified,and jeez was Iain,s recommendation JUSTIFIED.
I,ve just finished watching Season 1,and it,s brilliant,I cant praise Justified enough,it,s maybe the best TV Series to come out in a LONG time.
Timothy Olyphant plays the lead role,Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens,a "shoot first ask questions later" lawman,and he is outstanding,as is Walton Goggins,the BAD guy,Boyd Crowther,a born again Christian!!!!!
This Series is based on a short story by Elmore Leanord,Fire in the Hole,and the dialogue is exceptional,I put it up alongside,if not better,Deadwood,without the swearing,it,s character driven,with action,and has two lead female roles,beautifully played by Joelle Carter and Natalie Zea,these two Lady,s have really captured the "woman role",and are both integral to the story.
Justified is one of these "few" TV Series that you cant wait for each episode to happen,it,s set in Kentucky,with a host of really good character,s.
Raylan Givens is a throwback to our ole favourite 50,s "hero,s" in a modern way,he,s more than handy with a gun,but has made a clear line between good and bad,and woe betide the bad guys!!!!!
Pards,if you are looking for a modern day western,and Justified most definitely is,then look no further,Justified is the best "thing" to hit our TV screens in a very LONG time!!!
This has to be made into a Film,Raylan Givens has captured "the attention" in a very big way,a real modern day HERO!!!!!!
A wee word about Walton Goggins,I,ve seen him in a couple of films/tv series and he,s always impressed me,but in Justified he,s created a bad guy like I haven,t seen for a WHILE,you kinda have a "sympathy" for Boyd Crowther,Mr Goggins is truly excellent in this role,I hope there,s a lot more of him in Season 2,which I wait for in a "mouthwatering" way.
I will definitely buy Season 1,when it comes down in price,ha! this TV Series gets the HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION,a must see!!!!!
