It's really, really, really, really good.
The main character is played by Timothy Olyphant, and, to borrow a phrase from the kids at Warming Glow, if you're a dude and you don't have a little crush on Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens then you're totally gay.
The second season so far is even better than the first. I really how the writers of the show introduced this season's set of antagonists (an awesome backwoods pot-dealing clan led by the surprisingly frightening Margo Martindale), yet still managed to make it seem like a logical continuation of the first season.
You really should be watching it.
As an addendum to my raving about Justified, here are my current Top 5 must-see television shows.
- The Cape
- Modern Family
- Raising Hope
I have a harder time explaining why I love The Cape. I didn't love it initially. In fact, I was real close to dropping it after two episodes. But the third episode won me over, and it keeps getting better and better and weirder and weirder as the weeks go by. I'm trying not to get too attached to it because it is bringing in terrible ratings so it's likely to get canceled. But I'm going to enjoy the ride while it lasts. If you don't mind spoilers, you should head over to io9 and see what the geeks are saying about it. They love it just as much as I do.
