I Wish…

There were more shows like JUSTIFIED…

Maybe there are and I haven’t yet discovered them (I hope, I hope)… but daaayemm… JUSTIFIED is awesome. I read the short story it was based on (because, well, I’m crazy like that) and it very nearly mirrors the pilot episode (except for a crucial difference in the ending) from the first season, but the beautiful thing is how this show harkens back to that beginning (”Raylan and me, we dug coal together”) yet still evolves over the past three seasons… Raylan’s complicated family history and loss of his father (a good-bye I’ve never seen in before) resounded from where it once began, and let’s not forget the show turned a one time homicidal neo-Nazi into a sympathetic, tragic figure… one that scares you and yet you secretly root for…

And there are no throwaway characters anywhere, every single small or supporting role matters…

This season has been just off the hook excellent, to the point I’m very sad that it was the season finale last night.

Because now we have to wait for the next season…
