Justified With Monsters

   Both James A. Moore and Cliff Biggers have been trying to get me to watch Justified. Watched the first episode tonight and REALLY liked it. In several reviews of Blind Shadows folks have called the book 'Justified with monsters.' Having never seen an episode I didn't know why, but now I get it. The Southern small town setting. The hard boiled sensibility. The shooting and the killing....

Just watched the whole series and really dug the modern Western thing going on. Does a good job pulling all the characters and plotlines together over the four seasons.

Best show on the tube I wager that by the end of the first season you'll be about as pleased as you've been by TV since you were a kid. Good enough for rewatching, too.

Let us know how it goes.

Wasp, yeah the updated Western vibe is cool.

John, I've watched three episodes so far and liked each one better than the last. I think that's a good sign.

It's a great show. Walton Goggins is a gift to TV. I love this show.

Heh,heh. The big story arc hasn't even gone into high gear yet.
Just you wait.
Once I hit the episode with the dentist (which also has one of the most memorable showdowns in TV history) I knew Justified was something above and beyond,
