    • A well done tv series, one of my favorite.

      I just finished season 6 and looking back, I really enjoyed this Tv show.

      I highly recommend to give it a try, it's a great show, with wonderful characters and an interesting story.

    • Good show. Will be missed.

      IMO it's about change.

      When this started Raylan and Boyd pretty much appeared to be different sides of the same coin, by the end -Raylan had grown/changed sufficiently that this was no longer true while Boyd was the same guy, doing the same thing on different day.
    • Sad to see it go, it was a great show

      I've written this elsewhere, but I feel it's worth repeating.

      Justified is a real favorite of mine. And, the way I look at the finale. It finished in a way which, somehow, could always mean it could be revived. Why?

      Simple. Raylan's visit to Boyd. Now, the purpose was to let Boyd know that Ava is dead. although the reason that Raylan's visit ended up with the truth "We dug coal together", the truth is, Boyd Crowder's will have plenty of time asking himself the same question.. Why would Raylan go all the way from Florida to visit him, just for that, because I doubt that Crowder's going to be satisfied with this explanation.

      So, while it is more than likely that this show has ended and won't be revived for any reasons, at least, logically, there would be a plot to bring it back.

      So, it's the end, it was a great show.. and.. I wouldn't be mad if another season came along at some point...

    • Best show ever!

      I was tipped about this show during season 1 and I was hooked right away. I loved the atmosphere, the characters and the stories. As much as I loved season 1, in retropect it was the second weakest season. Mostly because it didn't have a season arc. It was a case of the week.

      Second season was so amazing. The villan of the season, Mags Bennet, played by the wonderful Margo Martindale. Her three sons, the sheriff, Dicke and Coover. Dickie Bennet, played by Jeremy Davies, was outstanding.

      Season three had Robert Quarles as the season baddie pairing up with Wynn Duffy. It was a fun ride with a really fun season ending. Made me look at a piggy bank different.

      Season 4 with the mystery of "Who is Drew Thompson?" was for me just as good as season 2. It also featured the best episode of the show, "Decoy".

      Seaon 5 was the weak season. It was mostly due to the casting of Michael Rappaport as Dale Crowe. He was awful and the season also had Ava in jail and that arc was also weak. However, it was still a good season compaired to other shows.

      Season 6, the final season, was the best season of them all. Sam Elliott was the baddie of the season and he was really great.

      It is hard to write down in one review all the great things about this show. But I'll try.

      The characters are very well written, even the supporting characers. Characters like, Dewey, Choo Choo, Wynn Duffy, Tim, Rachel, Art, Johnny and many more. Every characters has depths and doesn't come across as stereotypes.

      The actors: Walton Goggins, Timothy Olyphant, Joelle Carter and everyone involved.

      If you haven't seen this show, you really should!

    • You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive

      Oh wow. This show. The Dialogue. Raylan. Boyd. Wynn Duffy. There's so much to love about this series. I binged on it over the winter break and was able to catch up for Season 6 and I'll really miss this. Boyd is one of the best anti-heroes/villains in any TV show ever, and Raylan is one of the best protagonists.

      The setting is part of what makes this show different to any standard cop show (Raylan himself ain't a cop), and the show can make the most out of characters big or small, that would often be weak, retrodden stereotypes on other shows (Choo Choo! Dewey Crowe!). They're fun, and often awesome.

      I'll really miss this show. It's one of the best. Underrated, and very smart, with once again, some excellent dialogue. Well worth a watch.moreless
