I love Justified. It just may be my second favorite TV show ever, after The Wire. The dialog is just amazing. For example, Raylan talking to a couple of thugs sent by the crime boss’s incompetent son: “And he keeps you around so he won’t always be the biggest asshole in the room.” Can’t tell you how many times that would have been a fun, accurate, but sadly unprofessional thing to say in various meetings I’ve attended. And it doesn’t start to capture the Sorkinesque speed and beauty of most of the conversations.
