    I'm watching it and enjoying it a lot. The dialogue is great and while Olyphant is initially more ominous than I pictured Rayland in the book, he's great in the part. Just when I was planning to watch less TV they give Elmore Leonard his own show.

          I'm mildly surprised that, two episodes in, no one's commented on JUSTIFIED, the new series on the FX cable network based on Elmore Leonard's series character (if two novels and a short story can be said to constitute a series), Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens.

    As I recall, there was almost instant commentary when MAXIMUM BOB and KAREN SISCO debuted.

    Anyway, I like the show so far, though Timothy Olyphant (who played real-life frontier lawman Seth Bullock on DEADWOOD), for all that he's past 40, looks a bit too boyishly young for Givens, who I always imagined as a bit more grizzled looking.
