Saw a blurb about this in EW. Says it is based on an Elmore Leonard Novella.
I may see it out of curiosity. It's been filming in random places around my neighborhood for a while.
Some people might call that being really bad about multiple airings.
I'm really looking forward to this show.
IMDB will show you how many of the 10 episodes Goggins will be in.
Like you, I cannoy wait! Loved him in Deadwood and the previews of this looks like he will kick some serious butt in this.
Season pass already set. I hope the show meets the standards set by "The Shield" and "Damages".
I've got high hopes for this since it's based on a character from a couple of Elmore Leonard books. His dialogue writing is great so hopefully some of that makes it into the show.
well that stinks - trailers make it seem like he is a mjor character
My on-screen guide updated the other night and it turns out that the pilot is actually 71 minutes long. So this will push back the start times for the 2nd and 3rd airing of Justified tonight.
The pilot of Justified is from a Novella called "Fire in the Hole" the 2 novels with Raylan Givens are called "Pronto" and "Riding the Rap" -- both are highly recommended.
Just watched the premiere, and it did not disappoint.
It was Ok. I guess I will say good if ninny likes the lead, cause I sort of look like him.
To me, this looks like a USA series, not an FX series.
 I have never heard of the books. What is the first one I should try?
agreed, he played his part well.
How YOU doin'?
The 2 Raylen Givens books are "Pronto" and "Riding the Rap". Riding the Rap is a sequel to Pronto. I've never seen the short story that the Justified pilot is based on, it's probably in a Leonard short story collection.
If you've never read ANY Elmore Leonard books, I can recommend a bunch.
I've never even heard of Elmore Leonard. Where should I start? If the first book doesn't grab me, I won't read anymore. Sort of like Lee Childs. I made it half way through one, and then, kaput!
Elmore Leonard is a master. Dialog is his forte.
I started with LaBrava in 1983 worked my way backward from there and have read each new book as it came out in since. That one would be a good start (it was for me). There are a few books with repeating characters, but most aren't directly related to each other.
He wrote westerns before his crime fiction and I've gone back and read a few of those, too. The westerns were good and similar to the crime books with excellent dialogue and interesting situations.
