Yep. The series is based on a story by the late Elmore Leonard. Hollywood must have made a dozen movies based on Elmore books, but almost none of them seemed to see the sly humor in the man's books. (Get Shorty being an exception). Good for Graham Yost, the head writer guy on Justified. He got Leonard and the Leonard humor.

+1. This humor, and a director who knows to direct efficient Leonard-style dialogue, make even the throw away episodes worth watching.

3

Dead dirty Coastie, killed by one of the Crows, then the Crow was killed by other Crows (and fed to a gator) and the Cuban who was with them and gets the blame for the first killing was killed by Raylan and another Fed.

Shit, forgot, someone got chainsawed then shot, as well as the dude with the saw, so 5 for the show this season.

I say this season Raylan shoots 8, killing 6 and wounding 2. (1 will be an intended wounding the other will just luck out the .45 puts you down hard but sometimes does not go deep enough to shred stuff.)

10- Coast Guard guy, 3 guys trying to rip off Boyd, chain saw guy and the Canadian he was killing, that rat weasel OC guy, Dilly Crow, the Cuban and the funeral home director.....but I still feel like I'm forgetting one.

Now how many episodes before Raylan bangs Wendy Crow?

Shit forgot about the Bridge scene.

I don't think he will fuck her, too skankish for him.

His bottom of the barrel is fucking a chick at some bar, but the one who never fucks anyone from that place.

IIRC, Leonard was Executive Producer until his recent death.

I thought it was a weak opening show of the season. Gratuitous violence kind of following Sons format lately. Traveling outside of Kentucky tells me without Babs, storyline ideas are growing weak.

Yeah, I am with you. Somewhat weak opener. The antagonist situation with the Florida Crow being unimpressive. Wendy Crow is delightfully skanky though.

Ava was one of my favorite characters in S1, but by season 3 she just kind of felt like a sort of sad sack addendum to Boyd Crowder.

S4 didn't improve that.

I think I read that S6 is probably the last.

You guys are all snooty faggots.

After the debacle of Homeland this year (Still haven't watched the season finale), I'm not going to just give up on the shows that are still decent.

This show is an American treasure.

Still a lot of loose ends to tie in from S4, like Ellen May. Hopefully they keep her around a while-- she's been incredible.

Ellen May? Da fuq, Turd? You got a hard one for her? She's dumb as a stump.

The Crowes make me laugh. Dilly should have lasted longer. Almost dumber than Dewey. Duffy had the "what the f*** have I gotten myself into" look the whole time with Boyd. Should be funny watching those two try to get a "business" going.

She's hot in that Shelley Duvall kind of way. She went from being dumb to simple. Best female character since Mags.

2AM Cooze aside, you all are being cunts and are falling into a trap I think when we get a "HOLY FUCK!" moment soon and things roll hard.

Good show Tuesday night.

Loved the stand off scene, gets a little more into why Raylan is Raylan.

I get the impression he knows there is a lot more of Arlo in him then he wants to admit and becoming a Marshall was a way to not get fucked over by those traits as much as Arlo did being on the "wrong" side of the law, so Raylan joined the Empire.

Next season is the last.

Yes. The 6th season will be the last.

I'm looking forward to the dumb as dogshit Crowes in Harlan county.

Finally a solid episode this season. Boyd carried it of coarse. Bullshit that the most interesting new character this season is gone.

I'd just hate to see Eva locked up for the whole season. But I look forward to the demise of that weasel guard. The Haitian thing was quite a surprise.

Interesting stuff the last couple of episodes.

I wonder what's going to come of Boyd being partnered up with the Crowes.
