    This show was amazing for three seasons. This year its total vagina. cheesy proposal? check. womwn the only ones who can make a decision? check. gimmicky plot contrivances have replaced solid screenwriting and acting.

    I liked the first three seasons, but I had to struggle through this one. The dialog is long and contrived; you can almost see the pain in the actors' faces as they are forced to explain each and every detail of the plot. But apparently that wasn't enough filler. When they're not dragging out far-from-subtle jokes (so often they even added a comedian to the roster), they're inflating less important characters with 5 minute sob stories. Get used to that cheesy "sadness theme" they play during these; you're going to hear it several times each episode. Collapse

    What gives the show its kick is the gleefully childish lack of repentance shown by most of these rascals--countered by Olyphant's coolly amused control. [4 Feb 2013, .39]

    The fourth season of Justified gives us exactly what we want: much laconic tough-guy humor from Timothy Olyphant's U.S. marshal Raylan Givens, much grandiloquent nastiness from Walton Goggins' drug dealer Boyd Crowder, and much swift violence.

    The dialogue remains as pin-prick sharp as usual, with that clever mix of directness and humor.
