    After the awesomeness of last season's Neal McDonough, I wasn't sure season 4 could offer up anything to match it.

    And they did, in the surprising form of..... Patton Oswalt???!! :guffaw:

    OK, I did NOT expect to see him in the "Justified" universe, but I'm glad he's there.

    Anyone else watching?

    Patton Oswalt was phenomenal. "Lights goin' on!" I hope that character becomes a regular. The episode itself was one of their best, I thought. There's a change in tone which is good as last season, I felt, was pushing the "big bad" formula to the limit. I'm very excited to see where this goes.

    I'm actually hoping for more "one off" episodes this season.

    I love it when a season opener starts with AC/DC!

    Loved the episode and the new characters introduced so far. That part with Boyd's friend (the army sarge) was fantastic!

    Yeah I loved it as well. My favorite part of the show is always when we see Raylan in a showdown with someone, and there were two great ones in this episode.

    And it's always fun watching him deal with complete amateurs as well, like the two kids in this ep.

    really liked it. there was a sense of fun to it that was missing at the end of series 3. i haven't watched any Justified since last April...had forgotten how fucked up Arlo is :eek:

    Next episode is called "Who's Waldo?" so we've got our first story arc :)

    Well I really enjoyed this first episode. Updated all the major players for the season and gave us a mystery to solve right off the bat. I expect some CIA and drug lords to make an appearance. Of course that would be borrowing just a bit to much from Sons of Anarchy but I could live with that.

    CIA? They only operate within U.S. borders on Covert Affairs.;)

    I'm thinking that Raylan Gibbons may not actually be a "Gibbons" after all. Arlo (obviously not even his real name) may be an even bigger criminal from way back--the one responsible for pushing the unfortunate man out of the plane back in the Reagan days.

    I'm also curious to see what the snake-handling minister's real motives are, what scheme he has running. This is Justified, after all. Everyone has a scheme. :lol:


    Oh, and I just LOVE how Constable Bob's police car is a Pinto!

    That was an AMC Gremlin.

    I think the Minister's motive may be what all of those traveling Minister types are. Scam money.

    Ah. Still funny, though.

    I think the minister may be up to more than that; they seem to be building him up to be a major player, somehow.

    3chord, I don't think they were referring to you.

    And Auntie, it's Givens, not Gibbons.

    Mmm, didn't realise how much I missed this until I saw it. And Arlo just gets nastier as time goes on, twisted and hard.

    No, there was a spammer who posted after you, and that post has now rightfully been deleted.

    Well, the Arlo subplot thickens and YAY, Jim Beaver sighting.

    Not sure about thug-husband of Raylan's new girl. But Winn is back and has apparently learned a few tricks from his former bat-shit-crazy boss. Yikes.

    I do love how they were both so polite about it, though.

    OK...did not see the robbery coming; I was kinda hoping for a stand-off at the gym!

    Very harsh that business with the snakes; I was thinking he had been taking low doses of venom to build up a tolerance, but clearly that wasn't the case.

    I think that Boyd was almost sorry to see the preacher go down. I think he was torn between envying the man's maybe faith, hating the preacher being bad for business and watching a man kill himself to save face.
