Using Elmore Leonard's 'Fire In The Hole' as a jump-off point for the show, it nails his style completely. From the pilot the the season's end it maintains a slow and steady pace, each episode heavy on the dialogue, loads of great character moments and typically ending with someone catching a bullet or two.
The jist of the season is Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant of Deadwood fame) with having to protect his old flame Ava from the biggoted and corrupt Crowder family she was married into - before shooting her husband with a shotgun over dinner - in particular white supremecist Boyd Crowder, played by Walton Goggins. Meanwhile Raylan has to keep a lid on his temper as he's being investigated for his tendency to fill criminals with lead. And his issues with his Ex-wife and her new husband. And his dad.
The first half of the season (pilot aside) are procedural like, with their stand alone storylines and excellent one-off characters (How about a former mob accountant, now working as a dentist who attacks one of his more annoying patients?), but the second half gets into the serialised story, Boyd gets more screen time and it builds towards it's Wild West climax.Read more ›
I am a fan of this first series - it's cool, well-acted, modern and it has a good mixture of a long-running storyline combined with the side stories that fit the individual episodes.
The dialects are delightful (a bit in line with the "newness" of True Blood - I spent the first two episodes of that particular series just listening to the drawls of the characters rather than paying much attention to the contents) and the cast seems to be pretty much perfect for the roles - both the tough opponents and the romantic interests.
The characters are bordering on caricatures, but as long as they stay on this side of the line, I'm more than happy to embark on series 2 (which is already ordered).
Half way through the first episode I had to check the box to see if it was an HBO production because the production standards and script were so good. The story lines are entertaining and gripping, but not without humour and whit.
All this aside it also gives an interesting insight into redneck kentucky small town crime and drug supplying. Im tempted to say that its like a redneck version of The Wire, but that would do it an injustice as its far more original than that.
Very original, very entertaining, very well made.
The show takes place at the home town of our main character ( a US marshall) after he has been moved back in the fallout of a internal affairs investigation about a shooting, hence the shows name.
The world is believable but slightly unrealistic (think of 'No Country for old men') that gives the makers a little space to create a more rich and interesting place with ex-wife's, ex-girlfriends, local crime family and a scammer of a dad (the brilliant Raymond J. Barry). All well acted without exception.
The story is gritty, funny, sad, desperate, intelligent and violent with a few twists and loyalty shifts thrown in for good measure. Our Marshall has a dark side and this helps him get into trouble with the local boys network and dispatches his justice in a Spaghetti Western style.
