10-Gallon Hat Hero,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Justified - Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)This TV series is brilliant. Tis based on an Elmore Leonard story, so you know the hero is going to be super cool. Timothy Olyphant looks astonishingly cool (with hat) and plays the part of the Law Man rather well. The camera work is first class; it has a large budget (they paid Hollywood legend Timothy olyphant to play Law Man Raylan Givens and Walter Goggins from the brilliant TV series 'The Shield') and the storyline is interesting. Timothy Olyphant returns to his home in Kentucky to work as a law Man, and he gets involved with good people, bad people, drug dealers, an ex-girlfriend and an ex-wife. Oh and the dialogue is hilarious -
Karl: Next time you're in Cincinnati, come by the gallery. I'll show you my collection. I think you'll be quite surprised.
Raylan Givens: Honestly, I'd rather stick my d**k in a blender.
Chief Art Mullen: Well, that would solve a few problems.
Boyd Crowder: What brings you to my house?
Raylan Givens: Oh, this is your house now?
Boyd Crowder: Why, yes, prison is my home.
Chief Art Mullen: "I tell you to do one simple thing - refrain from screwing the witness in your own shooting - and you can't even do that Raylan Givens"
I'm off to watch season 2 now. And please keep `Justified' on your radar. I don't watch TV anymore (it seems to broadcast nothing more then dumb reality shows), but am so enthused by Justified, that I cannot wait for season 3.
Raylan is a 2D hero similar to David Carradine's `Qwai Chan Kane'. He cleans up rural Kentucky and manages to dispatch any number of bad guys per episode. Splendid.
According to the Information super highway Season 3 will be here soon.
