JUSTIFIED | Season 3 In Review

justified_s3Listen to the Podcast:

Disarm yourselves! It’s time to go back to your favorite Wynn Wynn situation!

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) return to Harlan County to talk about the third season of JUSTIFIED, the FX drama about U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens’ misadventures throughout the Kentucky crime scene. In season three, Raylan meets two new nemeses: Robert Quarles, a Detroit mafia enforcer with a deadly trick up his sleeve, and Ellstin Limehouse, the butcher and banker who lords over Noble’s Holler. His old foes, including Boyd Crowder, aren’t making life easy on Raylan, either.

Join Josh and Antonio as they talk about season three, covering Neal McDonough’s scene-stealing turn as Quarles, the continued rise of career criminal Boyd Crowder, Dewey Crowe’s cranked-up kidney caper, and much more.

It’s all leading up to the final season of JUSTIFIED, premiering on January 20.

    Great job as usual guys on the S3 recap! Season 3 is my second favorite season (2 & 4 are tied for 1st).

    Looking forward to the S4 recap! Season 4 contains my all time favorite episode of Justified, which is Decoy (Ep. 11). It has some action, but I love it for all of the great writing. Nicky has two lines to Boyd that make me laugh out loud whenever I hear them. All of the back and forth between Bob & Yolo are awesome. Everything Tim says to Art & Colton is great, as well as everything the guy in custody says to prod Raylan. Nicky’s lines to Eva are also disturbing but help put everything in context as to who these people are.

      Now,season 4 Bob, he’s basically a badass. Not a spoiler.

    great recap, i like season 3 and 2 about the same amount. I think is also when Ava took a dark turn

    Guys…I got discouraged, and a little embarrassed, when no one else was commentating. But these seasons of justified are just about perfect tv. Season 2, might be one of the most perfect seasons of tv ever, rivaling the perfection of season 1 and 2 of battleship gallactica. Season 3, the scary brutality was matched by complex stories and pitch perfect acting. Just slightly below season 2, but the craziness of Quarles was really intimidating and even upsetting to watch him disintegrate.

    I’m attached to these characters. I’m worried about the possible body count from the final season including some of my favorites.

    Thanks so much for covering a show I love. And thanks for the personal insights into life and people in Kentucky. We got lucky that Antonio has the extra information to share.

    You guys are doing a great job.

    Edit to agree with the below commentator that decoy is an exceptional episode. Ive almost got the lines memorized.

      Great comment. Even though four words would do, I enjoyed reading your 40+ words… :-)

      Susan, DONT GET DESCOURAGED, I’ve been listening to every one, but tweeting my thoughts to the guys instead of posting here. Can’t wait til season 6 Starts Tuesday so we can chat live! I love Justified, and I think seasons 2-3 are the strongest of the 5.
