Your Next Box Set: Justified

On the lookout for a new box set to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, hmv.com will be recommending you a series that will swallow up your whole life until your finish the last episode...

This week, we recommend biting drama Justified, which has just been renewed for a sixth season…

 

What is it?

Justified follows the trials and travails of Raylan Givens, a tough, uncompromising US Marshal, who is reassigned from Miami to his childhood home in the poor, rural coal-mining towns in Eastern Kentucky. He’s been assigned after failing to see eye to eye with his more “by the book” superiors in Miami, but he’s in no mood to compromise his values, as long as it’s “justified” in his eyes…

 

Who’s in it?

This show is all about Timothy Olyphant, who leads the way as Givens, but there are also strong supporting performances from the likes of Nick Searcy, Joelle Carter, Jacob Pitts and Walter Goggins, which really give depth and power to the series.

 

Why should I watch it?

If you like rootsy, tough drama set in the dark heart of America, then you’ll be in heaven with Justified. The show follows in the rich tradition of series like The Wire and The Shield in its uncompromising look at the world of local law enforcement.

 

Describe the show in three words…

Tough, tremendous and totally addictive.
