I wouldn't be surprised if somehow Raylan and Boyd end up fighting on the same side again in the finale. Those two have the most interesting relationship.

Well, I saw the climax this evening, and without being a spoil sport, was the last reference Raylan speaks of as a man in a hat, referring to himself? That's what it seems, since I've not seen every episode and of course, this ties up some story line

Yes it was a reference to himself and yes, the finale was brilliant!

"Piggy bank!" was my favourite line.

What a terrific finale of Justified. It's really the best cop show these days. Hell, one of the best cop shows ever. I guess we'll be seeing more of Limehouse next season.
That little bit in the end with "the man in the hat" was kinda sad.

I miss old Arlo. Loopy, absent-from-the-show-half-the-time Arlo is nowhere as much fun as the Arlo who was shot by his own son.

Other than that, this was a top notch season. Quarles is no Mags but I'll be damned if McDonough didn't deliver. Wynn Duffy was great in the Russian roulette scene, hope we'll see more of him. Also, I'm glad Limehouse wasn't killed off. It's a bit sad how they introduce and kill off a big bad every season. But yeah, top notch stuff.

I should be getting Justified S1 and 2 soon.

I am expecting Timothy Olyphant to be over the top.

I'll pick up season one of Justified perhaps, but more so, The Walking Dead, these are both shows were they end too soon, each episode. Sometimes films seem too long though.

It was Jere Burns in the Russian Roulette scene, seen here;

. I feel I should know some actors by now, at least with Raylan pushing for answers

The character's names is where my memory failed me! haha

Don't know if you guys enjoy the Charlie Sheen comic adverts at all, one of the funniest is for DirecTV, where he appears re-enacting Platoon (Don't ReEnact scenes of Platoon with Charlie Sheen!!)

He's in another spot for the series Anger Management now with FX, as I announced long ago when he was cut from Two and Half Men
The show was talked about as a TV version of the film with Jack Nicholson which I have to say I like, but the TV version?! Hmmmm

Wha?? That was a mistake, hoping it wouldn't show if it's over the limit, it should AUTO DISABLE, but mistakes happen
Anyway, TV Series. Who's read the Elmore Leonard book? I was hoping to inspire some convo with regard to Justified, as well, has anyone seen the TV minimovie of his book Glitz? Markie Post and Jimmy Smits star, the book is so much better, that's why I think Leonard is a great writer!

Did anyone watch the season finale of Psych? It was amazing. Hilarius noir episode. I was laughing the whole time. And a very serious cliff-hanger at the very end. Especially for a comedy show like Psych.

Quick question.

Afraid to spoil the tv show justified, can anyone tell me how many eps are in the 3rd season?

Dont know if anyone has ever seen Battlestar Gallactica but I just finished it and thought it was great. Certainly up there with the best Sci-Fi shows I've ever seen.

It was hilarious but Pete being such a Debbie Downer kinda killed the funny. Damn fine episode for Kartheiser. That last scene he shared with Jon Hamm was great. As if it wasn't enough that he'd been outmanlyhooded by Don, Lane and some high school jock he starts crying. It all came together perfectly. Damn fine episode. I hope Slattery has another episode or two behind the camera this season.

Did anyone in the UK catch the pilot for Derek? It's Ricky Gervais' latest project, and, well, christ it's f*cking depressing for a comedy. Bittersweet is definitely the word.

It's well made and entertaining, but it's a far cry from Extras and The Office in terms of tone. the long and short of it is it's a mockumentary that follows the people who work in an elderly care home. You've got the title character, Derek, who is amazingly kind but as simple as a connect-the-dots puzzle, Dougie who owns the place and just seems to hate the world and everything involved with his business, and Hannah the cleaner. She's the most depressing character: an only-just-middle-aged woman who's completely given up on herself and the possibility of her life going anywhere, but still sees the best in everyone else. It's only so sad because you run into these people every day and just pray you don't look in the mirror one day and see one staring back.

It's still on 4OD if you want to check it out, and I'm sure it's available through "other avenues" for those of you outside our borders.

Oprah left free TV for OWN, and this is probably her best interview, because, well, the subject is STEVEN TYLER! Intimate portrayal of the man you never saw before

Was watching NCIS, not sure if people watch as fans of Mark Harmon or not, but I figure that as the original draw. Not a big fan of it, but I kinda enjoy their cheeky humor, they do a bit of "sexy" humor here and there, but it's not far removed from other such shows on TV

Recorded it but still haven't got round to it. Not sure why but despite his smugness, Gervais is a really likeable guy.

I'm still on the fence when it comes to Gervais. I can't stand his 'miserable c*nt' act, but to contradict that, I think he pulls it off quite well at times.

Not sure if this has been mentioned in the topic before, since I rarely view the topic, but my sister has got me into that Cougar Town. It's f*cking random at the best of times, but actually find myself enjoying it. Weird thing is, first episode I caught, I actually mentioned about everyone from Scrubs being in it...then all the Scrubs characters turned up in an episode.

I was listening to an interview with Bill Lawrence, the creator of Scrubs and Cougar Town. Apparently the idea for the latter series started as a joke on the set of Scrubs. Lawrence struggled to try change the name after it was decided that the programme would be less about old women chasing younger guys than how the main character was a middle-aged divorcee mother. From what I could gather from the tone of the interview, Lawrence didn't sound particularly fond of his own show.

I like Gervais until he gets on his soapbox. We get it, you're an atheist. Stop telling people that there objectively is no God and using strawmen in your arguments against religion.

And the whole "mong" debacle was embarrasing for everyone involved, but especially so for him.

Just channel surfed onto CNBC with a special Porn Business of Pleasure, an expose hosted by a woman about the varied current aspects of the Porn Industry, it was featuring the Industries dilemma of FREE PORN being plentiful and eating into profits of the variety offered for a price

IP-TV came up, the set top box allowing Internet Pay to play on your TV, how it may advance for all manner of digital delivery, I fear this is how gaming will also evolve. Be aware! It's not as far fetched as you may think, the tech doesn't mean it's only to be used for pornography
