Critic Reviews for Justified: Season 2

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (11)

Justified nails the tone and prickly characterizations you expect from a crime drama set in the sun-baked American countryside.

What Culture

While Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins play their cat and mouse game with practiced skill, it's the two new women of Justified's second season that really shine.

Full Review… | August 25, 2014

In season two, 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.

Top Critic

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.

Full Review… | June 24, 2014

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.

Full Review… | June 24, 2014

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.

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.
