    I understand that Elmore Leonard was a Great Writer.

    I have never been able to finish one of his books, nor have i ever managed to watch all of a movie that6 i’ve been told was a good adaptation (Get Shortie, forinstance.)

    I managed something like three episodes of Season One of Justified before i just couldn’t be bothered to click on the next on in the menu.

    The sparse, streamlined style that everyone loves grates on me.

    I’m sure it’s me.

    I, for one, thought this season was great. I loved the Crowes. I liked Ava’s storyline. I liked Boyd trying to survive every week. I thought it was a great set-up for the final season.

    Each season of Justified is so unique. Yes, season 2 is probably the best. But season 3 was great too. The rise and fall of Robert Quarles was so much fun to watch. I loved season 4. I loved the slow build with the fantastic final half. Each season is so different, with its own strengths and weaknesses, that comparing the seasons is something people shouldn’t do. Same with the villains. The villains should not be compared to one another.

    But come on. You are seriously considering not tuning in next year? The last year? I can understand why you didn’t like this season but for it to completely turn you off from the final season… that’s just crazy.
