Yeah, I think all of us who have read and loved Elmore Leonard's books have also loved Justified. The truth, though, is that Leonard is simply not for all tastes. He goes from having his articulate sociopaths engaging in humorous banter one minute, to somebody dying violently the next. It takes some getting used to and some never do.
By the way, I thought the funniest line in this week's show was delivered by the dentist's sweet young girlfriend and receptionist. As she and the dentist are running from the law she says to him, "You know, when I woke up I had a nice job, a nice car, and a nice boyfriend who was a dentist. Now, I'm on the run with a former drug kingpin." Wonderful stuff!
