    I've been wanting to watch this show for a while, but I never got around to it. All I knew about the show is that it was based on something written by Elmore Leonard who wrote the book that Tarantino turned into Jackie Brown, which is my favorite Tarantino movie followed by Hateful 8.

    Someone warned me that season 1 would be slow, but the show supposedly gets much better after that. Season 1 did have its slow moments, but it kept me interested enough to keep watching. The first two episodes were great. After that, every other episode was pretty good. The finale was an 8/10.

    I actually thought that Walter Goggins (Vice Principals and Hateful 8) was the main character, but it turns out he isn't. I did like the finale and how it sets up the next season. I give season 1 a 7.5/10, but I think the show will get better.

    I definitely loved the dialogue and acting in Jackie Brown, especially by Michael Keaton lol.

    Everything I can find is that it ended for good after the 6th season. Would love to see a 7th.

    The sound track was greatness as well. Strawberry Letter 23 by the Brothers Johnson was perfect for the scene it was used in.

    Justified was my favorite show until I watched Breaking Bad. So my second favorite now, the writing is what makes it so good. The type casting and acting is top notch too but it's very unpredictable and keeps you comin' back.

    Agreed. Both are great. Season 2 of Justified was very memorable. Margo Martindale earned her Emmy in that one.

    Other favorite shows are American Horror Story, Fargo and Orphan Black.

    Fargo was great, I haven't seen American Horror Story and couldn't get with Orphan Black for some reason. Maybe didn't hang in there long enough.

    American Horror Story is an anthology, so it changes every season.

    Agreed on Orphan Black. It took me twice to get into it but by the third or fourth episode I started seeing how amazing Tatiana Maslany was as an actress.
