An outstanding first episode.
My father's from Harlan, and I've lived in the Bluegrass State for close to 20 years, and yes, they have it pretty much exactly right without exaggerating or going too far into redneck clichés. Every once in a while a character will use a particularly 'countrified' expression that makes me wonder if people really do say that (Ma Bennett had one this week but I can't remember what it was), but then I haven't been up in the hollers for some time now.
Doesn't Ma Bennett live in a place where Harlan is The City?
This show is so great. I finished watching Season 1 this weekend and jumped right into this episode. Raylan Givens has got to be one of my favorite characters on TV in a long time, perhaps ever. There is so much depth to his character. That scene at the gas station was so fun.
Can't wait for the rest of Season 2 and I only hate I can't run through it like I did the first season.
Most criminals are pretty stupid, not masterminds like a lot of other tv shows and movies portray them. Like the big mouth breather who threw the dead rat on Raylan's car. He oozes stupid. Big, red neck, bully stupid and he'll do something really stupid pretty soon so that Raylan busts a cap in his stupid ass.
I wonder how big a role Loretta will have in the overall season arc.
Heh, Harlan's at best a town, not a city.
That's kinda my point.
I got the impression that Ma Bennett's territory makes Harlan look like the Big City.
Was is when she called Raylan a "Federal"? That sounded pretty "countrified" to me.
Where is this actually filmed?
California (except for the pilot, which was shot in Pennsylvania).
There were several references from different characters in this ep where the term "Federal" was used...
Being from Tennessee I hate the fake accents. People from the south just don't talk as redneck as they portray them on this show. Sure you can find a place or two where people aren't real sophisticated, but they're far from dumb. Hollywood likes to make the south out to look like it did in the 40's or 50's. The truth is the south is thriving with industry and people called "Raylan" don't really exist.
Sorry to disagree with you, but you have obviously never been around eastern Kentucky. Rory Kennedy filmed a documentary called "American Hollow" about a "clan" of people that live very close to Cincinnati that sound and act very much like the people in Justified.
You have obviously never been around eastern Tennessee much less south east Kentucky. Cincinatti is no where close to eastern Kentucky, it's on the northern border of Kentucky/Southern Ohio. Harlan Kentucky is in the south eastern part of Kentucky no where close to Cincinatti.
Coming from SC I can tell you that they do a pretty good job with southern accents.
My wife is from a small town in W.Va. and she thinks that the accents, names, and attitudes of the people there are spot-on for folk she knew from the W.Va/Kentucky area. She thinks Justified is fantastic.
I have kin in Harlan Country (some of whom can probably even spell Cincinnati correctly), and Justified is right on the money. Of course not everybody in the state acts and speaks like that, but then I don't believe that everyone in New Jersey is a mobster or Shore-ite.
You really can't expect sense from a Volunteer anyway.
