Quick Look: "Justified"

Justified An original FX series which sees Timothy Olyphant (best known for his part in the series Deadwood) as a soft spoken Kentucky-bred US Marshall who returns to his hometown after a modern day showdown in a crowded Miami bar.  Along the way we meet some of the people from Raylan Given's (Olyphant) past and learn that there is much more than meets the eye with this man.  Based on the novels of Elmore Leonard, the show's strength is not really in the plotlines, but in the writing.  This team has managed to craft some very tight dialogue and it is simply a pleasure to watch.

Oh yeah, and he likes to shoot people.
