Very promising start
23 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very promising start to a show that could become an instant hit, or at very least, garner a huge cult following. Ever since The Shield, FX has been on a roll, and easily the station where true quality drama is at.

I really like the cowboy/old west type feel, mixed into the modern day. Walton Goggin's character has a line that explains the environment best as he says, "There was a day when 2 crackers driving down the street in a pick up would send them running" (them being the African American presence) His character, Boyd, along with Timothy Olymphant's character are fleshed out really well in a short amount of time, and are both very intriguing and well delivered through each actors performance.

The story writing is great and has a very nice flow. I never felt that i was watching a scene that wasn't necessary. And the dialouge also had the same flow. Along with some witty back and forths and clever retorts.

The pilot leaves me quite optimistic for the series as a whole. Im excited to see the next few episodes. If you were curious at all, i would suggest giving Justified a chance.
