If you believe in great American character acting then this is a show you shouldn't miss as no one is currently doing it better.

June 24, 2014 Full Review Source: Guardian

This tale of deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) has proved to be compelling, complex without being too showy, witty, tense, romantic and stylish. It ticks as many boxes as you'd ever hope a TV show to tick.

June 24, 2014 Full Review Source: Guardian

Raylan Givens continues to exemplify the perfect modern day cowboy; the mental state of Boyd Crowder is as beautifully ambiguous as ever before and every character swimming between their dueling existences make everything perfectly fall into place.

Great stuff all around.

This season has shown a richness and depth beyond anything in season one

Its unassuming, quaint, Kentucky Fried Storytelling hits on all cylinders.

Justified is at its most engrossing when the spare dialogue erupts with dark comedic force.

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

This well-crafted show explores grand themes like regret, redemption and self-doubt, but one of its many strengths is that it touches on those ideas with a light hand.

Wry, dry and my-oh-my-is-it-fun crime drama that's so riveting it could curl your whiskers.

The new season looks like it'll be more of the same, and I'm certainly not complaining, because the new villains are pretty dope (pun intended).

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source: Television Without Pity
Television Without Pity

Raylan's mix of steely confidence and self-aware humor fits Olyphant like a glove.

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source: HitFix

Olyphant's even a little better this season than last.

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source: New York Daily News
New York Daily News

Justified really found its footing, especially as it moved away from a strict hero story for Timothy Olyphant's Raylan and toward a more ensemble vibe, and introduced one of the best villainesses in recent memory.

If you didn't know this series was based on characters created by the coolest cat in thriller prose, Elmore Leonard, you'd assume someone was ripping him off really well.

Entertainment Weekly

Justified's rich vein of gallows humor, convincing sense of place, and twisty hillbilly-noir narratives are all selling points, but it's Olyphant's devilish grin that seals the deal.

Justified keeps on justifying - and demanding - our viewership.

The criticial hype around this show, going into its second season, is justified.

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source: Hollywood Reporter
Hollywood Reporter

The very real thrill of Justified comes from the irony-laced dialogue, the sly observations about life and the people of Harland County that are nearly Shakespearean in complexity.

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source: San Francisco Chronicle

The show is smart, chilling, amusing, convincing and unfailingly entertaining.

One of the best shows on TV is back and looks likely that it could get even better.

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source:

Justified pretty much looks like a home run.

February 9, 2011 Full Review Source: Variety

Justified has made a habit of absorbing first-rate character actors, and the casting here is gob-smackingly brilliant.

Audience Reviews for Justified: Season 2

Justified turned on season 2 as one of the best and most interesting tv shows around, thanks to incredible acting, amazing dialogue, hilarious one liners, interesting villains, Harlan county is one incredible place as everyone in it seems to have a gun, making some very unpredictable situations and so on. Not to be missed, but you really should try to endure S01 to get here. It's not the best but necessary to get to know the main characters and villains a lil' bit. Makes the ride much better.

The best season so far. Margo Martindale is an amazing foil for Timothy Olyphant.
