Justified: Season 2 Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
