Justified – “Measures” – review

After an episode full of all kinds of double-crosses and twists and turns, it ends with a whole lot of alliances being formed in order to fight Limehouse and Quarles.  Whether these alliances are legit remains to be seen, but if they’re successful against their enemies, then this season surely fooled me.  I thought...

Justified – “Guy Walks Into a Bar” – review

“Guy Walks Into a Bar” was a whole lot of ramping up to shit, setting the scene for the last three episode of the season.  In fact, though the title of the episode obviously refers to the great scene between Raylan and Quarles in the bar Raylan lives above, it could also be interpreted...
