“Justified” is back on FX and not even getting shot can keep Deputy US Marshall Raylan Givens from dispencing his brand of justice! I have been a fan of this series since it started and a fan of star Timothy Olyphant since his killer role in 1997’s “Scream 2”. His portrayl of laid back drug dealer Todd Gaines in Doug Liman’s now classic film “Go” is one of my favorite performances ever. Olyphant has seemed to find a niche for himself as a tough guy and his cowboy federal marshal Givens is a bit reminiscent of his role in “Deadwood.” Thankfully, Elmore Leonard’s sense of humor really differentiates the characters. The series is based on Leonard’s work and created by Grahm Yost, who has written a plethora of films and TV shows. Co star Walton Goggins is a fantastc antagonist as the childhood friend of Givens and a very troubled Boyd Crowder. It looks like there are going to be even more bullets flying around this season, and even more bad guys. Between Jeremy Davies, Neal McDonough, and Jere Burns, Givens rouge gallery is more diverse and conniving than ever. “Justified” airs 10pm Tuesday on FX. I for one have my DVR set to record.
