Justified – “Outlaw” – review

“Outlaw” is certainly one of the more exciting episodes of Justified we’ve seen in a while, with plenty of murders going down and a whole lot of double-crossing to boot – not to mention the death of one of the show’s major characters.  In fact, let’s talk about the untimely demise of Arlo Givens...

Justified – “This Bird Has Flown” – review

“This Bird Has Flown” takes it a little easier in the plotting department than we’ve seen from Justified so far this season, not furthering the Drew Thompson storyline in the slightest for starters (though we did get a quick glimpse of Sheriff Shelby checking up on the case on his office computer), but that...
