The series is about U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, a 19th century-style but modern-day officer based in Florida, who enforces his brand of justice to put a target on his back with criminals and puts him at odds with his bosses in the Marshal service. As a result, he gets reassigned to the district covering his rural Kentucky hometown of Harlan County.

So I'm pretty pumped for this, as it's a fresh start away from any doctor or vampire show. In addition to what I think is a kick-ass concept it's also staring the most awesome of actors, Timothy Olyphant.

So, who is looking forward to this?

    This show would have been better if they just brought Andrew Jackson to modern day and had him fight crime.

    When I went to see Shutter Island there was a 5 minute preview of this show which was a little bit much, I would say. It seemed pretty well made but "southern cop delivers crispy fried JUSTICE" is not really a premise that appeals to me.

    Tim Elephant is a pretty cool dude though!

    I'm thinking that it's almost entirely on Timothy Olyphant to sell it, just like Nathan Fillion in Castle.

    anyway this was totally awesome and Timothy Olyphant is basically channeling a young Bill Paxton which is basically the best possible thing anyone could ever do.

    The lady who played Ava, Joelle Carter, was just ridiculously sexy.

    The rest of the show was great too, don't get me wrong. But damn.

    The article in USAToday about this show said his character in Deadwood didn't really enjoy being a lawman, he did it because he had to. His character in this show loves his job.

    deadwood's fantastic

    the fact it's grotesque and full of curses reaffirms this

    damn it, man

    i mean, at first it throws you for a loop because shit, it's the first time a dude encounters this many curses in the west this side of blazing saddles but it's a great story of the brutality and downright shitty nature of people back in that era

    Yeah because that's how people talked in the old west. I don't mind coarse language when it makes sense.

    well, it was a rough place

    it'd be weirder if everyone talked like john wayne on that show

    or more entertaining, i guess

    a lighthearted deadwood as an idea just fucks with my mind though

    I should watch Deadwood some time. The things I hear about it make me think I don't really need to watch it though. I heard it has great characterization and well-done dialog, but I don't really want to watch a show about people being horrible to each other.

    I didn't expect it to be lighthearted I just didn't expect everyone character including the women to have the vernacular of Joe Pesci in Goodfellas. Gene Hackman played a true motherfucker in Unforgiven unlike anything in a John Wayne flick and he managed to do it without dropping the c-bomb every 15 seconds.

    timothy is an actor i'm ambivalent on

    man, he's played in some good roles

    but he's also been a boring fucking one note character a whole bunch too

    don't even get me started on that bullshit hitman movie

    man, he couldn't even muster an english accent?

    The worst thing about the Hitman movie was two people very close to me told me it wasn't bad. I watched caught about 15 minutes of it when my roommate put it in once and was all "What the fuck is wrong with you?!"

    i mean, you aren't the first cat to take issue with what many have characterized as excessive swearing in the show

    initially, i think they had a problem with greenlighting the show because of the cursing but the creator convinced them that dudes was cursing up a storm

    that era was full of intelligent yet ignorant and crass cats, so while somebody speaking iambic pentameter and saying fuck every five seconds may seem a little strange played out on screen, it isn't the biggest stretch of the imagination to say that it's likely there were people that spoke like that

    the "love story" of the film was the best part

    that bitch can't keep her clothes on despite her hatred of cats that sexually mistreated her and baldy can't stop acting like a date rapist with a bad case of premature date rapist remorse
