JUSTIFIED is the story of Deputy U.S. Marshal RAYLAN GIVENS (Timothy Olyphant), a true-blue hero and something of a throwback, given to wearing a Stetson and cowboy boots, carrying his sidearm in a hip holster – a weapon he only draws when he has to, and when he does, he shoots to kill, because, as he sees it, that’s the purpose of a gun.

Raylan was born and reared in the hill country of eastern Kentucky. It was in Harlan where he played ball, chased girls and dug coal. And it was from Harlan, at age 19, that he ran, determined to become a U.S. Marshal. Now, years later, after shooting a gun thug in a Miami hotel and thereby incurring the wrath of his Marshals Service superiors, Raylan has been sent in punishment (and by fate?) to the one place to which he vowed he would never return – Kentucky.

http://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/orig...outTheShow.php

I'm not sure what to make of this yet. It looks vaguely like Walker: Texas Ranger for 2010, but the idea of Olyphant playing another old West-style marshal could be good, but then again it's another crime drama with another quirky lead character ...

Starts Tues Mar 16, 10pm.

The promos (including the music) make it appear that somebody took his Deadwood character and created a modern day show around him.

Have you heard the theme music yet? Any resemblance?

The show was originally called Lawman, so maybe it was financed with a Timberlake tie-in at some point.

You can thank Steven Seagal for the new name.

Graham Yost is the creator/showrunner. He wrote Speed and created the series Boomtown, in addition to episodes of Band of Brothers, From the Earth to the Moon, and The Pacific.

It's based on an Elmore Leonard short story, and he's an exec producer.

Ever since I started seeing the promos a few months ago, I've been intriqued by this series and am going to give it a shot.

Reviews are starting to come in...

The best new drama series of the spring season — and any recent season — is "Justified," ---St Louis Post Dispatch

...with the terrific new drama Justified (which debuts March 16), FX and author Elmore Leonard have taken a crucial figure from westerns — the haunted lone gunslinger — and plopped him in 21st century Kentucky.---Time Magazine

Justified, The Pacific, Treme coming up, plus Breaking Bad returning: We are blessed. I think all of those will be sensational. A golden year for TV?

(Justified is from the people who made Boomtown and Deadwood, Pacific is out of Band of Brothers, and Treme from those who gave us The Wire. Those earlier titles are four of the truly great series ever on television. High hopes.)

I also think it looks like a winner. Some of the promos have shown Walton Goggins in some scenes but I see no mention of his name in the cast members listing. wondering what teh story is here. Maybe he's just a one episode character. we'll see.

You must live in LA and be in the industry. That was an invitation-only event, as I have read.

The premiere for the rest of us will be March 16th.

No comments about the show? I wasn't really into it for the first half of the show, but it grew on me and I ended up liking the show. I'll stick around for a while. I like Olyphant and the role seems to fit him to a tee. Seth Bullock in Kentucky.

jandron,
Neither of the above

rebkell,
I just finished watching it.

Good show. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
Who was the lady at the end? Raylen Givins's sister?

Raylen Givins's drinks on the job too much
I thought he drank moon shine during tonight's episode. Wouldn't that get him too drunk for his good armory skills?

I'll be watching this. My direct viewing will be late (Ending at 11:20 PM) but without employment, I have nothing to lose.

The lady at the end was his ex-wife (who's now a court reporter).

Some great lines...

I thought the plot was fairly weak (Raylan turns up in town and then the entire Nazi militia decides right then to wage war against the marshalls?) but Olyphant was excellent. He's a great character and the opening scene set the tone pretty well in just a few minutes.

I'm not a fan of pure procedural cop shows, but as long as they build the characters this show has potential, so I'll be watching for a few more episodes at least.

From the previews I wasn't planning on watching this, but then when all the glowing reviews came out I decided to give it a try. Seemed a bit unrealistic for modern times but there was plenty of action and it was enjoyable to watch. We'll see how the story develops, but you can't expect that he will be shooting people every week. They set the bar high after the first episode, I wonder if they can keep it up.

It helps if you're already a fan, or at least familiar with the Elmore Leonard genre (yes, I think he's worthy of his own genre). This show has potential. I'm in.

I don't usually have much to do with procedurals, proferring long-form serialized dramas by and large. But I watched the premiere episode and found a lot to like. I grew up in coal country WVa and know that kind of terrain, and populace, well. Also love the "Elmore genre", and felt there was a lot more than merely the two obvious reasons to like 'Karen Sisco' - a much under appreciated adaptation that crashed and burned on ABC. Olyphant is playing a slightly more humanized and likable version of Seth Bullock, his reluctant sheriff on 'Deadwood'. Rest of the cast seem solid. Think this one may be a keeper for me.

I thought it was pretty good, although the best part was Shane Vandrell, and his choppers, from The Shield
The good news is he isn't dead, they better bring him back as the miracously healed foil to Raylan. Maybe Vic, "I'm a different kind of cop" Mackey is next???

Anyone know where this is filmed? It didn't look like southern California, I'm trying to recall where it would be that green and hilly in the LA area.

The pilot was shot in Pittsburgh and suburban Kittaning, Pennsylvania and Washington, Pennsylvania with the subsequent 12 episodes having shot in California
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justified_(TV_series)

There are other links out there besides wiki, to verify this, but this was the easiest to answer your question.

I am not happy to hear that they are going to move it to California. I prefer when things are shot on location. I will bet that this decision will surly affect the look of the show.

I'll keep watching. I'm sure it'll hit it's stride as the season moves on. It will be interesting to find out why Shane Vandrell's character alive probably to find who is behind this all.

Gah ...

There just isn't enough landscape in California now to add variety to television shows. At this point I think every crevice is being filmed for a show.
