    I'm looking forward to this. I think Olyphant is a great actor (when he's given a good role, I suppose), and I've been looking for something to fill the void since Walker Texas Ranger went off the air. :D

    This isn't the Steven Seagal show then? Shame :(

    Olyphant was excellent in Deadwood and if Lawman is half as good as Deadwood well then it will be a good show.

    Can a mod please change thread to Justified please

    What Would Elmore Do?
    That's what "Justified" creator and executive producer Graham Yost asks himself and his writing team everyday as they build on crime novelist Elmore Leonard's short story "Fire in the Hole" to create the new FX series starring Timothy Olyphant.
    "Justified," premiering March 16 at 10, features Olyphant as one of Elmore's most popular characters, Raylan Givens, a deputy U.S. marshal who only shoots to kill. While "Fire in the Hole" was the guideline for the series pilot, it was on Yost's shoulders to extend Leonard's vision through the rest of the season.
    "That was the thing that was most frightening. Could I hit that same tone?" Yost told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour Sunday. "I think we're doing a good job."
    Leonard is credited as an executive producer on the series, but he says that's more of an honorary position.
    "I'm game," Leonard said. "I'm ready to come up with anything they want."
    Yost says the reasons for adapting "Fire in the Hole" as a series include the fact it's set in Kentucky, a location you don't see often on TV; Leonard's sense of character and humor; and the element of unexpected violence.
    "I like the entertainment value of the show," said Yost. "I thought it would be a change of pace for FX a little bit in that, while it's a violent show, Raylan Givens is a hero. He's a good guy, and you like him, and you're rooting for him."
    "I like the fact that [Raylan is] not a yeller," Yost added. "He just tells it like it is, and that's just the way it's going to be."
    Olyphant, whom we last saw in FX's "Damages" and previously on HBO's "Deadwood," doesn't mind being typecast as the aggressive, brooding type, though he does think Raylan is a significant departure from Seth Bullock of "Deadwood."
    "Both characters wear hats, but after that, they really start to become their own thing," Olyphant said. "I think that anyone who knows Elmore's work, there's a delicateness to it, and a tone to it, that's just so appealing to me. It's so fun."

    Done. Fixed your YT embedded vid in the OP too.

    Really looking forward to this, Olyphant is always great value given the right role. Hoping he returns for a few episodes in Damages this season as well!

    I'll give this a shot...

    Definitely. Olyphant is great (though gets pretty crappy movie gigs for the most part) and worth watching. And FX can do good dramas too (like Rescue Me). I know very little about the show other than the basic premise but will definitely check out the first few episodes as they air...


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,397 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    Yep, I like Olyphant alot... he was great in The Crazies.
    I'll watch the first few, definitely.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 21,634 Richard Dower

    Any idea when this is coming on over here? As in on tv?


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 34,568 ✭✭✭✭ Biggins


    Looks interesting and good to see some faces from The Shield popping up in it too.
    Will look forwards to seeing this.

    The article doesn't say the show has been renewed - it's simply the author's opinion that the show will almost certainly be renewed. I agree with his logic that FX does not have a lot of one hour dramas left (with Nip/Tuck gone and Rescue Me entering its' final season this year) and so it makes sense to renew Justified, but it doesn't actually mention that FX has given the show a second season already... (as was the case with Spartacus on Starz).

    looks good

    "Justified as a whole really delivers, from the explosive pilot to a couple of other, less adrenaline-filled but no less superb episodes that add humor and nuanced storytelling to the mix."

    "This is the best new series, network or cable, of the midseason."

    "Finishing each episode is like closing up a really great, gritty, little crime novel."

    "Justified is one of those programs where, when you get done with the three review episodes FX sends you, you’re angry because you know FX could’ve sent more episodes if it wanted to."

    Looking forward to this. The trailer that they released a few months back looked excellent.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,906 J-blk


    It's sounding better all the time - even more praise from TV.com:
    Every TV hero needs a villainous counterpoint. Which means that for a TV show to be truly great, its hero must face off against a truly great villain. And by that logic, Justified is a already a great TV show

    Really looking forward to watching it tomorrow now.

    I have been looking forward to this for some time

    Timothy Olyphant back on tv :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,448 ✭✭✭✭ Basq


    Olyphant is one of the most under-rated actors working today..

    .. 'The Crazies' was probably his first real leading role in a movie, right?


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,397 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    First "good" leading role - he had Hitman before that. :)

    Just finished this. Really terrific - great performances all round.
    I hope they can keep the standard high.

    I'll be watching the 720p later on, i'll post ratings as and when ;-)
