    Since I had hiked that trail it was cool to see the scenes in Kauai

    Season 3 has uber hottie Carla Gugino (Karen Sisko & the girl in Jet Li's "The One") plus "Boomtown's" Neal McDonough, who played County Asst. District Attorney David McNorris. He was in "Band of Brothers" as well. A Boston area guy. Love him as an actor, but were I forced to choose The One it would be Carla. :)

    Never cared that much for McDonough, but Carla is always welcome.

    I was just going to say the same but in reverse. Carla was on Entourage and Californication and she annoyed me on both. Let's hope she's better here. McDonough has been the bad guy in several things I've watched and I love him and his ice cold blue eyes.

    I don't dislike the actor, I just think he's a one trick pony. He plays the same character in everything I've seen him in.

    This month's Playboy (the one with Lindsay Lohan) has Raylan Givens story in it by Elmore Leonard. It was a fun read. Some of the characters are a little different (like the Bennets) but it was a fun read just the same.

    Was that a excerpt from Leonard's new novel "Raylan" http://www.amazon.com/Raylan-Novel-...=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325530445&sr=1-1 (which will be on my kindle soon)?

    Also: The Raylan in the novels(Riding the Rap and Pronto) is different from the one in the the TV series, I'm interested to see if TV Raylan has "rubbed off" on Novel Raylan in the latest book

    From the description on Amazon it certainly seems like that's where it was from.

    How so? I may have to pick up those books once I get finished with what I'm reading now.

    My feeling reading the books is that Raylan is older than portrayed on the series. Also there are some changed facts (which aren't real spoilers to the novels, but I'll hide them anyway

    In the Novels:
    Raylan was a firearms instructor at Glynco, on the series it is something he is thinking about pursuing
    Raylan wasn't shipped out to Kentucky after shooting Tommy Bucks (the initial scene in the "Justified" pilot), although in both media it plays out about the same, but he was given "reduced duties"
    Winonna did leave Raylan for a Real Estate agent, but it was when they were living in Georgia (when he was at Glynco), not Kentucky
    Raylan and Winonna have 2 sons

    None of this has a real bearing on the series, but it is interesting.

    Watching 3 or 4 a night, we are now caught up through season 2. I am glad we caught on to this show, and can't wait for season 3. :up:

    "Dutch" talks about "Justified."

    He's thrilled with it, especially with Graham Yost.

    I bought "Raylan" and am only a very few pages into it, but so far ...

    It has Dickie and Coover, (not the police chief brother yet) but they are Crowes not Bennetts. It has similarities to S02 in that regard. So far so good though.

    There's a pretty good chance I will finish it this weekend.

    I read five chapters and put it down. For me the premise is too far-fetched for Raylan's territory.

    Thread bump.

    This didn't fit anywhere else, doesn't deserve its own thread, doesn't belong in an episode thread...

    Ken Levine (TV writer & showrunner extraordinaire) has a great writeup about Justified in today's blog. No spoilers...

    EXCELLENT article....he nails it on Dickie, Quarles, Limehouse, Boyd Crowder....oh, heck, ALL OF THEM. While I liked Mad Men's season premiere, Justified is as close as I come to watching live these days...
