    I almost gave up on it after a few episodes, but the last part of the series was done very well and I'm stoked for season two. Olyphant was surprisingly convincing in his role, but the guy who played Boyd stole the show.

    From the outset, the show has struck me as one that had a lot of potential, even if it took a little while to hit its stride, and that's pretty much what has happened. It wasn't outstanding early on, but it was watchable enough to keep me interested, and I'm glad I kept watching. The last few episodes have been really good.

    Also, +1 to Boyd stealing the show. Olyphant is good, but right now Boyd is the best character, hands down.

    The ex-wife looked really, really hot in the last episode.

    I noticed this as well. She's always looked good, but it really stuck out in the last episode.

    She looks hot in every episode. She's many times better looking than Ava who is still pretty darn good looking... just different styles.


    Here's some randomness: I never realized until the second to last episode that this is based on some stuff written by Elmore Leonard... he actually lives down the street and around the corner from my wife and I. I used to see him at the local Starbucks all the time but I stopped going there a few months back in favor of a new place.

    I'm actually reading "riding the rap" right now which is the sequel to "pronto", both feature raylan (olyphant's character). There are little things in each book which I've seen incorporated into the show. The show is based on "Fire in the Hole".

    I know this is ridiculous, but the scene in front of the church with all the bougainvillea (or however the hell you spell the name of the thorny vine with purple flowers) irked me. Bougwhatever won't growth north of Orlando, much less in Kentucky.

    Bump for the start of season two. If you missed the first season, it starts a little slow, but it is very, very good.

    S2E1 isn't going to win any awards, but I'm confident they'll be able to get it cranked up soon enough.

    It's waiting on my DVR. One of the best new shows of the past season, IMO.

    Ditto. The Loretta character got a lot of good dialogue, and I hope to see her again. Mags is an idiot if she thinks Loretta will take the death of her daddy in stride - she should be careful of her own "apple pie" going forward.

    The Super Bowl ads were good: and

    Good start to the season. They're not going to get into the heavy shit right off the bat. Liked the hookup scene:

    "son of a bitch!"
    "yeah, that's what a girl wants to hear for pillow talk."

    After the scene where Winona cut him up saying how much better Gary the crooked realtor was, her bony ass wouldn't get in my bed ever again if I was Raylan. Especially with Ava in the proximity.

    Really? Man, that was just the right amount of sass for me. Then again, that probably explains my trail of failed relationships with volatile, abusive, sociopathic sirens.

    Solid ep this week. Nothing much happened plot wise except for the Boyd surprise at the end.

    Except that it laid the groundwork for the next season - the conflict between Raylon and Loretta will clearly be the main focus.
