Long Hard Times To Come for Raylan Givens
“Honestly, you’re the angriest man I’ve ever known.”
Raylan Givens is told this by his ex-wife. And it was at that point I knew this was a great show (with seriously kickin' music).
Justified is about a U.S. Marshal (played by Timothy Olyphant) who is being sent back to his hometown of Kentucky in reprimand for a shooting. He killed a bad guy, who pulled first. He was justified.
But there's so much more to the soft-spoken lawman than being good at his job. There's an inner rage couched in the veneer of being on the right side of the law. It's no wonder he hooks up with a Southern Belle who killed her husband.
She was justified, too.
