But SoA I can see getting left off considering what happened last season. It's time for that show to end, and maybe they'll get some consideration this year when it does. But I doubt it considering how absolutely nihilistic it has become.

Justified getting left off is really sad, a much more deserving show in all aspects.

As much as I enjoy SOA and respect Sutter, if after Season 2 if he had not morphed the show into more and more shock value violence as well as turning it into the "Katey Sagal Show", he might have had a better shot ..


As it is, it's kinda like listening to Shock Jock Radio .. are you tuning in to enjoy the show or just to see or hear what next outrageous statement or act pops up .. ??


Yeah, yeah, I know .. it's a show about Outlaw Bikers, what do you want .. ?? Breaking Bad was a show about a meth cook ..

Not at all, the reason I posted the link had not to do so much with his show in particular but with the the way Emmy ignores so many outstanding shows and keeps giving the same awards to pretty much the same actors/shows over and over again.

I've talked to people in the industry and no they don't watch TV. It would be too much of "busman's holiday."

Does anyone remember what was the exact "rule" of the number of steps away you had to be within before you could attack someone successfully? Of course, the rule proved unsuccessful against Raylan.

Raylan's refelexes had nothing to do with the failure of the rule. Danny was defeated by a hole.

Yeah, I remembered the rest of the scene as you replied. I guess the real rule is the "Nineteen Foot Rule" or the "Tueller Rule," although I still do not remember what the character called it.

Danny uses the 21-foot rule because that's the number used in popular culture. As we've seen, your mileage (or in this case, footage) may vary.

Especially if it's dark and you have to bury a dog.

Unless the shooter is a 90 year old lady or you are Usain Bolt, you will be shot. Besides, what LE officer is going to stand there with his gun holstered in that situation? ZERO

Besides the hole, Danny's slow ass didn't stand a chance. It made for a funny scene though.

The other common one is if one person has a gun pointed at guy that has his gun down at his side (in his hand) - the guy with the gun at his side can raise the gun and fire faster than the other guy can react and just pull his trigger.

Of course I wouldn't want to test that in a live fire situation, and certainly not against Raylan.

If you look at typical law enforcement draw times vs the time it takes an average person with a knife to close a 21 foot distance, the knife will win - assuming the guy with the gun stands in position.

But it's difficult to assess a guy's draw times without a dry run - and most LE won't oblige that request.
