Justified: The Complete Fifth Season [3 Discs] [DVD]
This show just draws you in. The characters are so well played by some great performers. You will understand and be hooked when you start watching this. Don't miss out on all the real smooth acting and slick action here.
Its pitch black at night; the only light is lens flares from the headlights of the surrounding vehicles that lance the darkness. Raylan Givens, outlaw lawman, is surrounded by armed enemies, all for the sake of rescuing a young teenage girl whose continuous rebellious nature and discordant old-soul behavior have placed her in mortal danger with those same armed enemies surrounding them. Raylan tells the armed goons the story of his childhood, tragic as it was, and how his father shaped/molded him with a firm back hand and even firmer disposition for correcting the perceived weakness in his son, making him shoot a defenseless animal; and he did, his aim even at that young age sure and true. An aim and skill that only sharpens and which he expertly masters over time, a story which he uses as a warning to the men surrounding them; to paraphrase: "I was good at shootin' before I ever went to GlenCo to train for it; that place just made me a better killer, and I'll kill 4 of ya before you draw your weapon, and i'll take my chances with the last 2..."
It is this scene, and this line, from this season, that sums up Raylan Givens. I didn't quote it verbatim; you need to see it for yourself, watch Timothy Olyphant's eyes in his performance, the tone of his voice, the lilt of his stance as his hand rests on his pistol grip, to get the full effect of how effortlessly TO portrays Raylan Givens in such a way as to embody the character the way few actors can with a role. He brings such gravitas and sinistry to the character that at times, you get the feeling Raylan being surrounded by armed men ready to draw is where he is most at ease, most like himself. In watching this series, and TO's portrayal throughout it, you can easily walk away from it believeing Raylan is one incident away from crossing a line he can never walk back from legally...but that's the beauty of the character and TO's portrayal of him, because you also come away realizing being a LAWman is the thing that keeps Ralyan Givens alive. If you haven't seen any of this series, watch all 6 seasons; if you have, I urge you to buy the whole series; I just completed my purchase of all 6 seasons on blu ray, and soon I will start binge-watching them all over again; there are few episodic television shows that are iconic: Miami Vice, NYPD Blue, The Shield to name a few; Justified joins the short pantheon of seminal tv series worth investing both time/money in collecting and viewing. It's must see TV at its finest!
I watched the first season of JUSTIFIED because I loved DEADWOOD (Timothy Olyphant). I was hooked and loved the character of Boyd Crowder. I purchased every season and was bummed it only went one season more. I highly recommend this show, and wished it was on along with DEADWOOD
The fifth season is a must see series which is filled with continuation of stories and character which are match very well from the start of the series which is very entertaining. The episodes just keep getting better. Keep you in awe and satisfies you with each character that is featured in the series. It also own up to the name justified. I have purchased all the DVDs season episodes. Great series filled with drama action and comic relief at times. This series is definite worth owning and seeing. Awesome series.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One of the Best TV Series of the Past 5 Years
Justified is one of a handful of TV shows that I never missed an episode. Great character acting that each year had a cast members nominated and win Emmy Awards. If you're a fan of Elmore Leonard's books, short stories, and work that has been made into movies (Get Shorty, etc.), then this show will give you a taste of some of his best work. The Blu-Ray has an excellent picture and sound plus bonus features. I do not buy much TV shows on DVD/Blu-Ray, but this is one that I know I will enjoy for years.
When my husband picked up the Season 1 set of Justified a while back, I had my doubts. He wanted to give it a chance because the price was great (sale), so I hesitantly watched it with him. Oh...my...gosh...I was thoroughly hooked! This is the 5th season on DVD and I'm still loving it! I'm seriously bummed though because I think next season (6) is the last one.
While this season might have been a smidge less interesting than others, the quality still remains with the set. The extras are nice, and it's another notch in the holster belt of one of the greatest shows on television.
