Justified: Season 3 (2012)



Critic Consensus: Justified continues to dispense its brand of spare dialogue and sudden violence, culminating in a very satisfying finale.

Critic Reviews for Justified Season 3

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (13)

It's possible that the writers of Justified understand Elmore Leonard's best character better than Elmore Leonard does.

Top Critic

Lean, laconic, precise and as carefully word-crafted as any series on TV, there's pretty much nothing here to suggest that the third season won't be as good as the second -- or better.

Whether you've followed the show to this point or not, you can tune in and savor smart TV drama at its best.

Jan 17, 2012 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

One of the many reasons why Justified is so good is the fact that no matter how convoluted the relations among the series' characters appear in retrospect, they never feel as such (at least to excess) while watching.

Aug 26, 2014 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The great thing about Justified is the way it fills itself with characters who live and die by a code that strives to keep even the most dastardly of characters from crossing some sort of ethical or moral line they have put down for themselves.

Aug 25, 2014 | Full Review…

Even with all the changes, Justified remains the same potent mix of understated humor and fascinating point-counterpoint intrigue.

Jun 24, 2014 | Full Review…

We're always kept on the edge of our seats, while bits of humor are used occasionally to cut the tension.

Jun 24, 2014 | Full Review…

I'm still enjoying the hell out of Justified, and the upside of my quibbles here is that there's so much good to work with: there's nothing wrong with Justified that can't be fixed by the many, many things that are right with Justified.

Aug 26, 2014 | Full Review…

Always a robust show, Justified is looking rock solid.

Jun 24, 2014 | Full Review…

I never expected Justified to turn into something like a cornpone crime-thriller version of a social problem novel, but it did.

Audience Reviews for Justified: Season 3

Not exacly an improvement over S02 but a continuation of what was made so well before, the storyline and approach are quite different, giving room for amazing rampages and hilarious situations. Unfortunently, once we start to exit Harlan, things start to get a bit messy but fortunently things end up rather well, connecting most of the dots.
