This season, Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) confronts the Crowes, a deadly, lawless family from Florida intent on settling in Harlan with new criminal enterprises in mind. Meanwhile, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) struggles to free his imprisoned fiancée Ava (Joelle Carter) as he partners with the Dixie Mafia’s Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns). Based on the late Elmore Leonard’s short story Fire in the Hole, Justified was developed for television by Graham Yost.

Timothy Olyphant was really a major player in this show, and should be given credit for all his contributions!!!
Justified ROCKS, plain and simple. Wish all TV shows were this good.
It's wonderfully written--witty, sometimes hilarious, dramatic, constantly coming up with surprises and some of the most outrageous characters you could hope to never meet in your life, and it has equally good plots and character development. In addition, the acting is really, really fine. Timothy Olyphant is great as Raylan Givens--his knock-kneed stud strut will always keep me coming back for more, and I love the idea of a Jewish boy playing a hick from the Kentucky backwoods (I hope this doesn't count as discriminatory, since I'm also Jewish). Olyphant's Givens is interesting, edgy, unexpected, extremely smart and unruffled, but it's Walton Goggins' Boyd Crowder that is one of the most interesting, well-acted characters in TV history (Breaking Bad's Walter White being another).
Despite the burgeoning body count, Justified rewards with surprising plot twists and turns, and a healthy dose of humor -- some wry, some pure slapstick. If you can manage to get past the language, violence, and gunfire, you will be thoroughly entertained.
Justified is currently in its final season, with only a couple of episodes to go. I'm really going to miss Raylan, Boyd, Ava, and Limehouse, to name a few. One word of advice: If you do decide to watch old episodes of Justified, start with S1/E1. You can watch them all free if you have a Kindle Stick and a Prime account.
My wife and I did just that, holding the couch-a-thon to end all couch-a-thons: 73 episodes, all told. I'm so glad we did. The writers of Justified managed to weave people and events in the early episodes through all of the subsequent episodes. My first time through, most of those references went right over my head. When we started from the beginning, all those later references made sense.
