Background

When America needed an American hero, Elmore Leonard gave us Raylan Givens. An independent-minded, old-fashioned, and gun-handy lawman, Raylan sees himself more as John Wayne than John McClane. The series began by establishing him as a no-nonsense U.S. Marshal who backs up his word when he gives a “gun thug” 24 hours to leave town. Once he’s transferred back to his birthplace among the blue-collar hillfolk of eastern Kentucky, he’s far more at home in his cowboy hat, riding boots, and jeans than he was in Miami.

Background

Justified was one of those shows I’d been aching to see because:

1) Everyone in the world was telling me to watch it
2) The promos looked badass
3) Timothy Olyphant is awesome and his previous show (Deadwood) was criminally brilliant

I try to avoid learning too much about shows I haven’t seen yet, especially serials with actual plot lines, so all I really knew to expect was Olyphant as a badass U.S. Marshal fighting a bunch of rapid Kentuckians.

Imagine my surprise when I pop in the first DVD, and I see Raylan in Miami, surrounded by bikini clad women and Latin music against the backdrop of a bright tropical sky. As he sauntered around the pool in a fashionable but not-exactly-rugged suit, I wondered if this was the same show I’d been hearing about. Continue reading
