Ed Catto: One Man’s Treasure

  • Comicmix
You know the old saying: One’s man’s trash is another man’s treasure. That applies to me and my pals so often.

Now, I realize I’m very blessed: I have a great bunch of friends. I share interests and/or a long history with each them. I guess that’s part of the definition of a friend. But we don’t all love the same stuff. And when it comes to Geek Culture, a bunch of my friends just aren’t that into it.

I pity those fools as I flip through the latest PaperGirls.

Freddie P is that type of friend. He’s a long-time pal. We grew up in the same small town, kept in touch through college and lived near another in those wild just-a-few-years-outta-college days. After that, we always stayed in touch. We’ve watched each other’s families grow up. We laughed

A Complete Guide to Every Song Written By Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello During Their Partnership

A Complete Guide to Every Song Written By Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello During Their Partnership
Though his music can be heard in all corners of the globe, Paul McCartney’s songwriting process is impressively homegrown. When he teamed with Elvis Costello for sessions that would ultimately yield his 1989 album Flowers in the Dirt, the pair met at McCartney’s personal studio: a converted corn mill dubbed Hog Hill Mill, a short drive from his farm in rural southern England. Armed with nothing more high-tech than a pencil, paper and acoustic guitar, two of the world’s most influential composers climbed the steps to a small office tucked above the studio and pulled tunes out of thin air.

Film Review: ‘Affluenza’

Film Review: ‘Affluenza’
The end credits for Kevin Asch’s film “Affluenza” may not acknowledge “The Great Gatsby” as its obvious inspiration, but the film hews so closely to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel that it practically counts as source material. Recasting the great Jazz Age saga of class mores and American decline among a bunch of Long Island rich kids during the financial meltdown of 2008, the film hits all the book’s basic notes without ever seeming to grasp its main point, making for a splashy-looking yet depressingly empty exercise that is never more shallow than the times when it tries to go deep. The film launches on VOD this weekend, with a Los Angeles theatrical rollout next weekend.

To list the number of parallels between “Gatsby” and “Affluenza” might seem like piling on, but it’s also the quickest way to lay out the cast of characters. The Nick Carraway role of passive,

Exclusive ‘Justified’ Interview: On a Wynn Fall with Jere Burns

Prominent 1950′s politician, Adlai E Stevenson was quoted as saying, ”You can tell the size of a man by the size of the thing that makes him mad.” Justified‘s mobile drug kingpin, Wynn Duffy must be living large because through all of Boyd Crowder’s (Walton Goggins) misfires and failings, he rarely raises one of his expressive eyebrows. When Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) is playing Harlan Roulette with him, well, that’s reason to get plenty mad. But most of the time he sits parked in his mobile home, somewhere in Kentucky, scheming with his lone bodyguard Mike (Jonathan Kowalsky) on watch while he’s inside, drinking tea or watching a women’s tennis match.

He’s carried out the dirty work of the Dixie Mafia and served as Robert Quarles’ yes man; now he has stuck by Boyd, through thick and thin – all for a piece of the action in Kentucky.

The Top 20 Moments of Justified Season 3

We’ve already begun talking about Season 4 and what is coming down the pipe, but I’m not quite finished talking about Justified Season 3. Before we send it off properly, let’s look back at the very best moments and scenes we’ll never forget. We tried to keep the list along the lines of full scenes rather than one liners and favorite quotes. Here are our Top 20 Moments of Justified Season 3–see if your favorite made the list.

20. Charlie flees the country with evidence money (“When The Guns Come Out”)

We thought we saw the last of the whole evidence money thread, but when it came up again we never thought that Charlie (Casey Sander), who was in charge of the evidence locker, would take it and run off to Mexico. When Winona (Natalie Zea) stole the money, she was criticized for acting out of character. Charlie’s act

'Justified' Ep Graham Yost dissects 'Coalition,' offers five teases for next week's season finale
Spoiler Alert! This week’s episode of Justified, “Coalition,” written by Taylor Elmore and directed by Bill Johnson, revealed who really had Mags’ money, set Boyd (Walton Goggins) and Quarles (Neal McDonough) on a collision course designed by Limehouse (Mykelti Williamson), and gave Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) another reason to want Quarles dead. As we’ll be doing each week throughout the season, we asked executive producer Graham Yost to take us inside the writers’ room. Bonus: This week he also offers five teases for next week’s season 3 finale.

'Justified' Ep Graham Yost dissects 'Measures' in weekly postmortem
Spoiler Alert! In this week’s episode of Justified, “Measures,” written by Benjamin Cavell and directed by John Dahl, Dickie’s search for Mags’ money resumed. Errol (Demetrius Grosse) told Dickie (Jeremy Davies) he’d tell him where Limehouse (Mykelti Williamson) hides the money for a share of it — but said they’ll have to get Boyd (Walton Goggins) involved to fetch it. That’ll be fun!

Meanwhile, the target on the back of Quarles (Neal McDonough) grew. Theo Tonin (Alan Arkin) sent hit men to Kentucky to off him, but Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and Art (Nick Searcy) stopped them

'Justified' - 'Measures': Feel the pulse
A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as I apologize for not giving you a full accounting of every second of my life before I heartlessly accept the gift of your feminine virtue... "Ever get the feeling God's laughing at ya?" -Raylan Given the number of pieces on the board, we're unsurprisingly spending the back half of this season alternating between episodes that move the pieces into new positions and ones that then go to battle and kick much ass from those positions. Given how good the latter kind ("Watching the Detectives" and "Guy Walks Into a Bar")...

'Justified' Ep Graham Yost dissects 'Guy Walks Into a Bar' in weekly postmortem
Spoiler Alert! This week’s episode of Justified, “Guy Walks Into a Bar,” written by VJ Boyd and directed by Tony Goldwyn, did more than put Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and Quarles (Neal McDonough) in a standoff. It revealed the dark truth of Quarles’ past, landed Raylan in bed with the barmaid, and proved that sexual favors don’t always win you an election (which is why Walton Goggins’ Boyd always has a plan B). As we’ll be doing each week throughout the season, we asked executive producer Graham Yost to take us inside the writers’ room.

'Justified' - 'Guy Walks Into a Bar': Support your local sheriff
A review of tonight's tremendous "Justified" coming up just as soon as I go Derek Jeter to Sammy Sosa... "And then I set him free." -Quarles Last week's episode was more of a piece-mover, which I said I would be fine with so long as the next episode was strong in the way that "Watching the Detectives" so perfectly followed "The Man Behind the Curtain." Having now seen "Guy Walks Into the Bar," I can only say one thing to Graham Yost and company: Move all the damn pieces you want, for as long as you need, if you can pay...

'Justified' Ep Graham Yost dissects 'Loose Ends' in weekly postmortem
Spoiler Alert! This week’s episode of Justified, “Loose Ends,” written by Ingrid Escajeda and directed by Gwyneth Horder-Payton, found Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) asking Limehouse (Mykelti Williamson) to team up with him to take down Quarles (Neal McDonough) to no avail, Boyd (Walton Goggins) winning the debate between the candidates for sheriff, and Ava (Joelle Carter) putting a bullet in pimp Delroy (William Mapother) to save junkie prostitute Ellen May (Abby Miller) and deciding to become the girls’ new madam. As we’ll be doing each week throughout the season, we asked executive producer Graham Yost to take us inside the writers room.

'Justified' - 'Loose Ends': Mine over matter

  • Hitfix
A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as I invite you up here to discuss the sociology of baked goods... "I'm either gonna put him in prison or in the ground." -Raylan When you have as many chess pieces as "Justified" has put on the board, you have to do an episode now and then that's simply about moving the pieces into a new position. It just so happens that "Loose Ends" is the second of those in three episodes, but if the payoff for these chess moves can be as terrific as last week's "Watching the Detectives"...

'Justified' preview: Joelle Carter on Raylan kissing Ava, Ava packing heat

'Justified' preview: Joelle Carter on Raylan kissing Ava, Ava packing heat
As you can tell from the promo for tonight’s episode of Justified, “Loose Ends” (watch it below), the feud between Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and Quarles (Neal McDonough) continues to escalate. And equally exciting for fans of Joelle Carter, Ava gets a shotgun back in her hands when whore Ellen May (Abby Miller) comes to her for help. Oh, and also, Raylan kisses her. What did Carter tell EW about what lies ahead? For starters, the kiss harkens back to the series’ pilot, when Raylan showed up to see her on business after she killed her abusive husband and she laid one on him.

Justified Round Table: "Watching the Detectives"

  • TVfanatic
Granted, we could likely write this every week, but: what an especially terrific episode of Justified this Tuesday, as Raylan was doubly framed and Winona was faced with horrifying news about her ex-husband.

As always, our Round Table team of Dan Forcella, Jim Garner and Tiffany Vogt from TVAddict.com are back with a rundown of the latest happenings in Harlan. Read on for their take on "Watching the Detectives" and chime in with your own...

-------------------------------------------

Do you think Winona is gone for good this time?

Dan: Since Natalie Zea is going to be a star in the new Kevin Williamson drama, I think Winona is not long for Kentucky. Justified will have to give Raylan a few other love interests, so yes, I think she's gone for good.

Jim: Even looking past the baby, Winona and Raylan have a connection that results in them being drawn to each other.

TV Review: Justified, 3.8, “Watching the Detectives”

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Though “Watching the Detectives” was short on action like last episode, it managed to nonetheless maintain high tension while keeping the many abounding plot threads advancing steadily even with Raylan stuck in his office for the majority of the time. Anyone familiar with the series knows Raylan’s been the focus of many investigations by other law enforcement agencies, which is why I loved “Watching the Detectives” for exploring how Raylan and the Marshals’ office reacts to multiple investigations occurring on top of each other. Not only is the FBI, in conjunction with Asua Vasquez, grilling Raylan for his connections to Boyd Crowder (something Boyd took a few hits from Raylan over not long ago), but the Lexington Police Department are also very interested in Raylan after Winona’s pathetic ex-husband, Gary, was shot dead on the front lawn of his and Winona’s old home

‘Justified’ Season 3, Episode 8: ‘Watching The Detectives’ Recap

Considering all the things Justified has seen Raylan do since the onset of the series, it’s a wonder that his association with undesirables like Arlo Givens (Raymond J. Barry) and Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) hasn’t caused more friction for the lawman.

So one has to hand it to the slick, Detroit gangster Robert Quarles (Neal McDonough), when he utilizes, to near perfection, Raylan’s past misdeeds and local connections in an attempt to discredit and destroy the one man standing in his way of criminal dominance in Harlan.

Quarles’ plan begins with the murder of Gary Hawkins (William Ragsdale), who had the misfortune of running into Quarles and his associate Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns) at the end of ‘The Man Behind the Curtain.’ Of course Quarles knows that, in this case, the police will ...

Spoiler Alert! This week’s episode of Justified, “Watching the Detectives,” written by exec producer Graham Yost and directed by Peter Werner, found Quarles (Neal McDonough) framing Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) for the execution of Gary (William Ragsdale) on Winona’s lawn, and Sheriff Napier (David Andrews) booking Boyd (Walton Goggins) on trumped-up charges of attempted murder. (Though doesn’t it feel about time for Boyd to blow up something?) As we’ll be doing each week throughout the season, we asked Yost to take us inside the writers room.

Justified, Ep. 3.08: “Watching the Detectives” offers a whole lot of frame-ups

Justified, Season 3, Episode 8: “Watching the Detectives

Written by Graham Yost

Directed by Peter Werner

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX

A curious thing happens on Justified this week: it collides with reality. Sort of.

We’ve now spent 30-some-odd hours enjoying the antics, quips, shootings, and beatdowns handed down by Raylan Givens, sometimes – but not always – in the name of the Us Marshals. For some non-converts, the universe the show has operated in up to now has been too stylized to take seriously. “Watching the Detectives” is almost like a direct riposte to those who can’t get down with the Elmore Leonard aesthetic the show has nailed down so thoroughly: it’s saying, “yes, we can have people look critically at Raylan’s actions, and the fabric of the show will stay intact.” Which, it must be said, it does.

In what feels like the briskest episode in some time,
