Yep...pretty much says F' you to Walking Dead limping towards a good final 20 minutes. I love Sons, and Archer, and Hell on Wheels, Ripper Street, etc......but if you want to track a show that has simply gone from strength to strength and developed characters, backstories, mythology all fleshed out with just some of the most Fred Astaire/Gene Kelly graceful dialogue mixed with tough guy brilliance, JUSTIFIED really has no equal. I do realize that the Boyd/Raylen dynamic is going to have to have a winner and a loser but I just hope that it comes at the close of their run. Even if that is next season. One cannot exist without the other. Boyd is Raylen's Joker...yes folks it IS that good.
And Adgy, although Patton was typecast(again!!!! and we have had that conversation) I really think they managed to finally use him to his strengths while flipping the script at the same time. So yeah, agree with you wholeheartedly. How in the HELL they managed to
end that episode without a casualty(besides Yolo) is beyond the **** out of me. But there is going to be a serious culling before the next 2 finish playing out. Read on a site earlier that there is speculation
that Drew is Raylen's real daddy, with the conversation in the car about Raylen's mom's 'proclivities' and Arlo having to defend her,when Drew and the other ex sherriff(who killed Arlo) were talking, presented as evidence. The only good thing about that is that Jim Beaver would prolly stay on the cast in some facility...which would be great. But who knows. I honestly watch this show with no idea where they are gonna right turn it. LOVE LOVE LOVE Justified.
