I just finished watching the series finale of Justified , and I found myself choked up at the final scene. For the scene in itself, yes, but more just at the knowledge that such a great show was ending. I love that it ended on its own terms, but I'm still very sad to see it go.
I have not often seen its equal on network TV, or anywhere for that matter, and it's sad that the anti-South and anti-Western prejudice of modern Hollywood and the general viewing public kept this show from getting the recognition it deserved. It's one of only two television shows I've seen (The other is The Wire) that I would describe as downright Shakespearean in scope, in depth, in cleverness, in insight, and in strange violent poetry. Its cast was stellar, its writing was better, and it was a treat to watch from start to finish.
Here's to you, Justified. You done good.
