TV Worth Watching Again

Thanks to my homegirl Mad for dropping the Twitter bomb on me yesterday and letting me know - oh thank you baby Jesus! - that Justified is coming back for it's second season in February.

People, do you know how few TV shows I watch? Like, next to none. And the few I do still watch I've grown disenchanted with. But Justified? Yeah, full of awesome. So full of awesome that even though My Man jokes that we only watch it so "you can get your skinny guy wearing a cowboy hat fix" (hey, I ain't dead!) it's the one show we both unanimously agree on. We both think it's King Of Mt. Awesome.

This bit of news that I only have to wait until February for it to come back on the air was met with much running around in circles, flapping of arms, squee-ing, and almost passing out from the sheer ecstasy. I think it's what they call "pleasure overload." And isn't it sad that all it takes to make me happy outside of a good book and halfway decent chocolate is a TV show with a skinny guy wearing a cowboy hat and some of the best damn dialogue to hit the small screen...well...ever.

This promo is all season one footage, but dang, you have to watch it to see what you've been missing. The show's a hit, so at least I don't have to resort to begging for people to watch it so it won't get canceled.

I really like Timothy Olyphant. He reminds me of Josh Duhamel in looks, which is great since they're both super hot. I should give this show a go!

Lori said...

We love this show, too. And we were just talking about it, wondering if it was coming back. Awesome news :)

SQUEEING along with you. I love this show. And not just 'cause of the sexiest former swimmer IN THE WORLD! (yeah, Jason Statham, including YOU!)

OMG, I heart Timothy O! Are you watching him on The Office? Doesn't have the cowboy hat, but he's still sexy:)

Living in cowboy country, this show just didn't trip my trigger (yet). Spartacus on the other hand... and Andy W. won't be back to play him! Waaaah!

Hooray for skinny guys in cowboy hats!!

I love Justified. Not only do I adore Timothy Olyphant, but the writers really nail the dialogue style and accents of people from Kentucky. I have a lot of relatives who live in that region and I feel like I'm at a family reunion whenever I watch the show. Too, the character of Raylan Givens is fantastic - confident and protective but not perfect. Can't wait until February. This takes the sting off my hurt over the end of Friday Night Lights!

Isn't it such a rush when you find out a favoured show is coming back again??? Can't say though other then the mentioning of it here, I've never really heard of this show. I don't know if it's on any of the channels we get here or not, but I'll keep an eye out for it. Guy in a cowboy hat - skinny or not - is not to be sneezed at :-)

Wendy said...

Nom, nom, nom, Timothy Olyphant, nom, nom, nom. That, and the whole thing is based on an Elmore Leonard character - so at the very least I knew I was going to get great dialogue when the show debuted.

Kristie: It's on the cable channel FX here in the states. Not sure if y'all have access to that in Canada.

OMG, thank you! I've been waiting and wondering and watching the episodes I have on my dvr. So excited this is coming back in February.

Spotted this on Netflix and told my husband, "Hey, I know someone who likes that" (didn't tell him it was really a romance blogger I read). We both really enjoyed the first episode, and will definitely be watching more, so thanks!

Wendy said...

HelenKay: Seriously, I can't wait. Broadwalk Empire has filled the void for me somewhat, but I don't lurve it like Justified.

Elizabeth: LOL - you're welcome! And yeah, best to omit that romance blogger part ;)

Elizabeth said...

Oh, I told him where I heard about it AFTER he watched and liked it. He took it like a man. ;)
