Justified was one of my favorite television series of all time. The show provided a combination of drama and comedy that worked very well. The writers were able to adapt Elmore Leonard’s stories and characters skillfully. Olyphant and the rest of the ensemble cast (with an especial shoutout for Nick Searcy as Raylan’s boss Art Mullen) were fascinating to watch.
So now the powers that be are going to do an eight episode series with Raylan Givens in his iconic cowboy hat bringing law and order to Detroit. It’s on FX late this year. Can the producers catch lightning again? Well I guess I’ll have to watch to see. Hey, do I have FX on my crappy cable package.
