Did no one else watch Justified?  A little inconsistent at times through the years, but when it was on, it was really on.  Like Olyphant's prior gig - Deadwood - it never really got its due during its run but will probably get noticed after its demise.

This final season is being raved about by AV Club. I feel like the first season and this last one were very strong but it got so-so in the middle. I'll miss it; excited to see what the finale brings.

FX really has been killing it with Justified, The Americans, Fargo, etc but their positioning of their shows as "miniseries" keep them from getting an Drama Emmy nods that would make more people take notice.

Season 2 of Justified was definitely the best, they just never had a villain as good as the one Margo Martindale played since then.  Her pot queen pin role was the best.. Last season is kinda plodding along, with a couple good moments

Deadwood was great and he was fantastic in it
First time I saw Tim O in GO, I knew he was going to be someone to watch

although, I couldn't ever really get into Justified

I was always partial to the white guy who was kind of nuts and got his arms cut off by the hog guy at the end of the season.

Wynn Duffy will outlive us all, though.

Agree on season 2 being the best. 

Lots of great minor characters throughout the series.  Sometimes the show got a little too hokey/cutesy with the hillbilly stereotypes. Other times the dialogue spun its own fantastic vernacular, but not with the consistency that Deadwood did the same.  Boyd Crowder had his moments, but he was nowhere near the foil to Raylan that Ian McShane was to Seth Bullock.

And Olyphant seems only to succeed when playing the morally conflicted lawman.

I just always thought he was a lame superhero. And I don't like any superhero shows. But Netflix is good...
