    I just finished re-watching the first season on Blu-ray, and although I remembered it was good, I forgot just HOW good it was! There really isn't an off episode the entire season, and the writing is consistently amazing. Can't wait for Wednesday!

    That one is great -- I just saw it in the recording of the last 2 eps. Priceless!

    Read the baseline source Elmore Leonard books over the hiatus. Amazing how well they used actual Elmore Leonard dialog in the series. Better yet, their original new stuff is equally excellent. Well done, Justified people.

    Can't wait for the Star Wars scene.

    I've seen several of the teasers for this show over the last few days and it has me quite intrigued. That Star Wars spot is just all kinds of awesome.

    Looking forward to watching Season 1, looks like some great stuff!

    That's the one that was right after the Super Bowl! Great!

    I watched the last two episodes of season 1 last night - fantastic stuff. I'm so excited about the premiere. I love discovering great new shows.

    Well I watched the first two episodes of Season 1. Great, great show. But I have some concerns someone can perhaps answer for me without spoiling anything. :)

    I'm going to spoilerize just in case:

    So in two episodes, Raylan has shot someone in a "duel" in each episode. He obviously can't keep shooting someone in every episode, but these standoffs are some of the greatest scense. Do they still find a way to keep things interesting throughout the season?

    Crap. I didn't know there was a season one. I thought tomorrow's was the series premier.

    I don't like coming in cold in season 2. :(

    Record S2 and don't watch them for now, meanwhile grab the DVDs or get S1 from iTunes, Amazon, etc.

    Even if you happened to miss S1 (if for example options above are too expensive), I suspect you could jump right into S2 as it will likely start with some "previously on Justified" type intro.

    Either way, the show is highly recommended. While I like to see that some new fans have found it, I'm disappointed that it seems so many people missed the show until now. It is one of the best shows on TV period. Apparently TiVo suggestions let some people down or some people failed to check the newspapers, magazines, or other sources for the recommendation to find and watch the show. Whatever the reason, failing to jump in while you have a chance is not acceptable :)

    But I would really really REALLY not recommend it. A lot happens in the season finale, and it is all stuff that is carefully built up to over the course of the season. Missing out on that development, you would miss out on a lot.

    Plus there are only 13 episodes in the first season, so not too hard to catch up if you commit to it!! :)

    I agree, the first season is connected in such a way that makes it almost a 13 hour movie. Sadly it doesn't look like FX is going to do a marathon of season 1 anytime soon (they did a couple of season 1 3 or 4 hour blocks over the past few weeks), there doesn't seem to be a (legal!) way to watch it online either.

    You can purchase the DVD's for season 1 on Amazon for 19.99 - that is less than the cost for 2 movie tix in these parts, and totally worth it!!!

    I'd recommend "Pronto" and "Riding the Rap" -- those are the 2 novels that "star" Raylen Givens, argueably they are a Prequel to Justified, as they take place in Miami.

    I have been dreaming lately about how I'd love to have a prequel series about his time in Miami. Raylan Givens in Miami seems like it would be an awesome story. Then I'd have my two favorite leading male characters in Miami (Michael Weston is the other).
