Looking at the show info, it was actually supposed to run through 11:01 anyway, but apparently it was just long or got started late or FXHD messed up.

Anyway, I've set another recording for another airing, +4 minutes this time. Just want to see the very end.


Also, did anybody else notice that the audio was 2-channel stereo, instead of DD5.1? I'll be curious to see what the audio is in the re-recording I've set.


FX changed their times, they probably added more commercials . I set the timer on it a few weeks ago and it programmed for 1 hr. When I checked yesterday, it listed for 1:07. Luckily I remembered they pulled this crap last season and had it set for the extra time.


By the way, Winona is friggen hot!

The really good character actors just keep showing up. I noticed it again last night when I rewatched the 2005 remake of Assault of Precinct 13, which is a surprisingly good film by the way. Another Lost graduate, Titus Welliver, played an eastern European drug thug. It was the last thing Welliver did before he got his recurring role on Deadwood. He's been in a bunch of stuff since. Welliver has a lot of range and is a master of accents.

An excellent start to a new season. RG is quite the pistol. I was LOLing during the gas station scene. Also, when he turned in his weapon..."What are you going to get now", "Probably the same thing"...Marshall..."you should probably get an Ouzi" (alluding to RG's rising bodycount).

There isn't a serialized cop show like this one. Setting it in Hillbilly Hallow is genius. Setting it in Miami wouldn't be nearly as interesting (which is where most of the RG stories are set).

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

My son wrote Eps 3, 8, and 12 for this season; he says that FX is very happy with the show and the numbers so far, especially on top of much stronger than expected DVD and blu-ray sales for season 1. They are currently shooting Ep 11, and prepping his episode 12 to shoot. Everyone involved is VERY excited about the whole season; it's got a great 'arc', and apparently it really feels more like a coherent whole, like a 13 hour movie (with episodes, of course!)

Your son and Justified's other writers should be justly proud of their work on the show. Elmore Leonard has long been one of my favorite writers and what was done to his work by earlier television writers was a travesty. Now, finally, a TV show has come along in Justified with writers who know how to write using Leonard's distinctive voice and have captured his quirky characters and situations. Your son and Justified's other writers understand what Elmore would do and are doing it. Justified is hands down my favorite TV drama.

I salute your son's work in advance. If it's anything like ep1 this season and all of the prior one, FX should continue to be pleased with the ratings and disc sales.

Beyond the scenes already mentioned in ep1, I like the one where Deputy Brooks (Erica Tazel) asks Rayland to take the lead given the potential racial implications. Their admittedly brief conversation was uncomfortable but very honest. It appears that trust has grown between them since the prior season.

I've always wondered about the potential difficulties in having different sets of writers for a series that is so quirky or non-traditional, with unique characters. It would seem to be a daunting task to maintain both a story arc and individual character qualities when they are written by varying sets of writers who come and go.

I took note of that scene as well. A lot was said in a few words, and Raylan's final kidding "Yes, ma'am" was perfect in showing how far their relationship has come.

There's actually a very good article on this subject on the FX Justified website, a fellow wrote about this process in the Justifed writer's room. Based on what i've learned speaking with my son, it's pretty accurate. It's in the production notes area.

They do have continuity in that they've had the same set of writers in the room since beginning in August. While it's true that ultimately individual writers write each episode, the process to get to the final script is a very collaborative one.

This is the best show running now IMO, and I am glad it has returned with the same great writing that we saw last year. This is my must-see show every week.

In his commentary track to the Season 1 Justified BD set the show's creator, Graham Yost, said he had as a goal the selection of writers who appreciated Elmore Leonard's work and could write in a way that captured Leonard's quirky characters. He stressed the importance of the writers asking themselves when they were writing scenes, "What would Elmore do?" He even had some Lance Armstrong type rubber bracelets made with "WWED" printed on them and handed them out to his writers. I strongly suspect that Yost still does that.

Last year her character seemed to me to be a placeholder. Not so. Good writing and acting. As someone NOT from Raylan's part of the country, I found myself slipping into her viewpoint as they confronted the brothers from hell. Well done.

As a new-comer to the show, I was heartened to see that E. Leonard was Executive Producer of the show. Does he take an active part in the way the individual writers produce the tone of the show?

I also enjoyed the season opener. I really like Timothy as an actor. He plays a great part in this show. The whole gasoline station scene at the end was awesome.

As I understand it, he really doesn't take a day-to-day active role, but he really believes in this project and is supplying ideas in the form of more stores about Raylan that he has encouraged the writers to 'strip for parts', i.e. use story and character bits they find appropriate. He's been a tremendous resource for the writers, and his blessing of the show means a great deal--he really hasn't been behind any previous attempts to bring his characters to TV.

Another solid episode last night. The line of the show-I'll paraphrase because I don't remember it verbatim-was from Mags Bennett talking to Loretta (the teenage girl) about the whereabouts of her father. Knowing that she had her sons throw Loretta's father's body down a mineshaft at night, she tells Loretta: Yeah, to protect your father we had to send him south. It's too bad that we had to do it in the middle of the night to avoid detection by the Federals.

I really like Mags character on the show. Though I think we all must acknowledge that she's a black hat, like many such characters on Justified she has redeeming characteristics. For example, her desire to protect Loretta from harm. On the other hand, watching Mags in action you have to wonder about her intentions for Loretta. Obviously, she wants to serve as a mother-figure but to what end? To become a well adjusted, law abiding citizen, or Mags MKII...

It looks like Ava is going to hook up with Boyd and you know what, that could actually be a good match. If you think about it in aggregate Boyd treated her better than Ryland did.

It also looks like we're going to have competition between Ryland and Winona's husband. I like Ryland's chances in the end. Though Winona has complained about Ryland's flaws on more than one occasion (most-if not all of them legitimate), she is attracted to those flaws.

Listen to me: I sound like a gossip queen around the water cooler waxing on the latest soap opera. But when you stop and think about it, isn't that what Justified is-a soap opera? It just happens to be a really good, action packed one.

I enjoyed this week's Justified, too. I really like Winona's interaction with Raylan. She understands him, warts and all, better than anybody. I also enjoyed the talkative psychopath who Tim took out with a head shot near the end of the episode. It's always nice, not to mention unusual, for someone other that Raylan to shoot and kill a bad guy.

I still don't quite know what to make of Boyd in his present iteration. Maybe he is trying to live a straight life in order to make Ava happy but Boyd has had hidden agendas so often, I never have much confidence in what his motivation might be.

Anyway, Justified continues to be my favorite TV drama; I look forward to the new one every week.

Agreed: Boyd is like the proverbial box of chocolates isn't he? Of course, that just makes his character that much more compelling.

Loved tonight's show, glad to see Boyd getting more air time and while Winona is hot, so is Ava and I like her character a lot. I like Coover too, 'Did you get the Oxy?'

I forgot to watch this again. I love this show but this is the second week that I forget about it. Now I have to record the Friday at midnight airing-- again. I was too involved with the KNICKS and the debut of 'Mello!' tonight.

I have to set this show up as a series recording, especially now, since I got my new STB from Fios with a 500GB hard drive. (And soon to add a 1TB external hard drive too.
