    (Oh, Wikipedia says that he was scheduled to die in the pilot episode of it; but audiences liked him so well that he was "promoted to main cast from season 2 onward.")

    I think you mean just "series", not mini-series. It was on for six seasons, you know, thirteen episodes each season. I'm a couple of episodes into season six right now. I didn't know about Boyd Crowder (Goggins) not making it out of the pilot, but I did know that he died in the short story, 'Fire in the Hole', from whence Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens came. Author Elmore Leonard went on to write I think three novels about Givens, including his last published work, 'Raylan', which I just got in the mail yesterday. The plotlines and even some of the characters themselves differ markedly from t.v. show to books, but both are great and (like Craig Johnson's 'Longmire') each can be enjoyed for what they are without worrying about the fact that one doesn't jibe with the other.

    Things like that - a major character almost dying at the outset - do happen, of course. If you ever watched 'Hill Street Blues', Renko and Bobby Hill, two of the more popular characters on the show, were gunned down in the pilot, and the original script called for them to die. As broadcast, their condition was upgraded from deceased to in critical condition.

    Yeah, the difference between a show like this and the run-of-the-mill network cop show is like night and day. The wife and I were talking about this the other night. (She doesn't watch 'Justified', but we watch 'Breaking Bad' and 'Better Call Saul' together - also fantastic shows.) We enjoy 'N.C.I.S' and 'Blue Bloods', but they're so formulaic and predictable; the plot is rushed in order to fit into 42 minutes of airtime. With a show like 'Justified' or 'Breaking Bad' - or my all-time favorite series, 'Sons of Anarchy', or my second-favorite, 'Banshee' - the writers and show runners don't feel pressured to wrap everything up in a neat bow every week, and the pacing is tremendously slowed down. On a network show you'd never have a character just staring off into the hills for thirty seconds, even though it's perfectly natural for them to be doing that and it adds tremendously to the emotional impact and realism of the scene. It's great when the producers and writers are allowed to do that sort of thing, and it can turn a good show into a classic. Starting with the fifth season of 'Sons of Anarchy', FX gave Kurt Sutter an extra thirty minutes per episode, which was almost unheard of.

    Walton Goggins is amazing. I've never watched 'The Shield', but I've read that he was one of the stars of that show, so now I have to start watching it soon. I enjoyed him in 'Vice Principals' and 'The Righteous Gemstones', and - talk about versatility - as a transexual woman in 'Sons of Anarchy'. It's difficult to imagine 'Justified' without Boyd Crowder lurking around. The show would certainly be less colorful. (How they roped him into doing that godawful sitcom 'The Unicorn' I'll never know. They must have backed a truck up to his front door and dumped out a huge mountain of cash. I stopped watching after three episodes.)

    Justified, Banshee and Longmire are three of my all time favorite series. Deadwood was pretty awesome too.

    Yeah, I just caught up with 'Deadwood' last year. The way the characters all spoke in such long-winded and convoluted sentences - what I call "Sh*tkicker Shakespeare" - was off-putting, and I sometimes had to resort to using the Closed Caption function just to follow what they were saying, but it was a good show. I guess it was the show that caused Timothy Olyphant's career to really take off, and got him the lead in 'Justified'.

    I just now got through with Season 2 (of 6) of 'The Shield'. Kurt Sutter, the creator of 'Sons of Anarchy', was one of the principal writers on that show, and he managed to use pretty much all the major actors, to one degree or another, in 'Sons' and/or 'Mayans'. I don't think Sutter was connected with 'Deadwood', but several of the actors from that show ended up on 'Sons of Anarchy' as well - most notably Dayton Callie ("Charlie Utter") who became Police Chief Wayne Unser on 'Sons", Robin Weigert, who went from being the explosive and perpetually drunk Calamity Jane to soft-spoken attorney Ally Lowen, and Ray McKinnon, who was the epileptic Reverend in 'Deadwood' and became Deputy U.S. Attorney Lincoln Potter on 'Sons' and 'Mayans'. Versatile actors all.
