    Ohhhh. I think I’ll be following you along with this season, though Ive only seen a few episodes here or there. It’s one of those shows that get recommended to you here and there, but one that mostly fell through the cracks of my watching habits. But I am sure you guys will give me the important info!

  • StephenDrabek

    I started watching Justified when it first aired at the end of my freshman year of college but stopped after 4 episodes because it wasn’t the kind of show I was looking for. Then over the next few years I kept hearing how great it had become and how serialized it had become so last year I decided to finally pick it back up and was able to watch most of it by the time S5 premiered. Raylan is my favorite character but I’d have to say the season-long antagonists and notable guest stars they get are what kept me engaged. It’s nowhere near the top of my list but I’m happy to have caught up.

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      Stephen, I don’t want to spoil my thoughts on S1, but the show for sure takes a dramatic turn in quality when the serialization comes into play. If it had stayed simply story of the week I’m not sure we’d be talking about it. Glad you caught up!

  • susan appleby

    This is my favorite show, although last year was not as fantastic as season 2 and 3, I’m hoping for the best this season. I’m so excited you are covering this show. Walter Coggins as Boyd is an outstanding character. He is so fantastic with Raylan that they kept him in the series after he was supposed to die in an early episode.

  • susan appleby

    I’m so glad you guys are doing this show. I had to post about it twice. Just love this show and you guys podcasting about it. “A show with depth and intricate relationships among the characters.” Antonio is wonderful.
    Raylin’s daddy issues…. wow this will be a fantastic theme to follow.
    Tim …many fans second favorite character.

    It is also action packed as Josh says.

    This is a fantastic show.

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      It IS Bonanza! Gahhhhh! Good call.

    A couple more comments on the podcast:

    Is Dewey Crowe the Sam of Justified? He’s so craven

    My favorite character is Raylan….gee, are you guys blind? You need a woman’s perspective sometimes. Have you seen that guy? He’s gorgeous.

    But the best characters are Boyd and Limehouse.

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      Ha, Raylan IS gorgeous. Dewey IS very Sam like. He makes some Sam like rash decisions along the way too. Knowing what is to come, t’s fun to rewatch and see him turning up right away.

      • Brendan Fitzpatrick

        I had totally forgotten that Dewey Crowe is one of the first characters we ever meet in the first episode of the first season. He’s so great.

  • Brendan Fitzpatrick

    Not even a little shout out to Wynn Duffy in the favorite character discussion? I love that character so much, he might be my favorite. I hope we get more Tim and Rachel development in this final season, they are pretty great background characters, but they need some more moments to shine. I’m just really, really excited you guys are covering this. I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun.

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      Wynn (aka Mike Boogie +15 years) is great and his reactions are the gold standard.

      • Brendan Fitzpatrick

        I got our good friend Zach Brooks started last night on Season 1, made it through the first 4 episodes. I forgot how, “bad guy of the week” it was in the beginning. So glad it turned out the way it did. Also, I think I counted 5 times the word “Justified” got used in the pilot.

        • Antonio Mazzaro

          Yeah, I need you to tell him to keep watching through S1. There’s no way he quits after that.

          • Brendan Fitzpatrick

            I’m making sure he sticks with it, absolutely.
