10 Minutes of “Justified” Episode 10

Woo-hoo, self thought this was the final episode, but it wasn’t!

What self saw (before hubby decided to play a little game of “Lets-interrupt-wifey-while-she-is-in-the-middle-of-blogging”) was this:

  • 10 minutes of what self thought would be her last sight of The White Stetson on Timothy Olyphant’s handsome head — that is, until next year, or until God-knows-when F/X will choose to grace us with Season 2.
  • Some gratuitous scene of oral sex between a fat man and a hooker. This was jaw-dropping because there is no need for “Justified” to explore territory formerly staked out by “Nip/Tuck.” Or, if there needed to be a naked man scene, why oh why was it not featuring Timothy Olyphant?
  • In the first 10 minutes of the final episode, there were a couple of delicious scenes with Boyd Crowder: first he was shown having an interesting conversation with a methamphetamine addict, which seemed like a scene from “Scared Straight.” Then, he was shown addressing a tent congregation. Self loooved the writing in this scene. Later, Raylan comes sauntering along, and self noticed immediately that there were several cuts on his face. What’s up with that? Or were those left-over cuts from last episode’s ass-whupping behind a bar?
  • Then Raylan delivers himself of the longest lines of all-in-one-breath dialogue (Almost Shakespearean! Self kids you not!) she has ever heard in a TV show supposedly set in Kentucky.

OK, so self just couldn’t take anymore of the “Let’s-See-If-I-Can-Get-To-The-Wifey” routine and went to watch TV in another room, which didn’t have cable. At least, she got to watch most of “The Good Wife.” What a sharply written show that is! Self just loves Julianna Margulies! The ending of that episode was priceless, reminding self that this used to be her favorite show — that is, until she got hooked by “Justified.”

(And, this just in:  Naomi Watts, who self thinks is one of the most incandescent actresses of her generation, is doing a big-screen biopic of Marilyn Monroe.  Naturally, web chatter protests that Ms. Watts is too thin.  Some even dare to suggest the role would have been better filled by Nicole Kidman!  To which last self can only say:  No way!  No frickin’ way!)

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
