Hey people, if you have a moment please pop over to Nola.com and vote for Theo's as the best pizza in New Orleans. My sister is a manager there, but in all honesty I wouldn't plug it if I didn't genuinely believe it's the best. So go vote if you can!

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.

Well I had a drink with a friend of mine 
a week ago today
we were celebrating a month and a half 
too late St. Paddy's Day
well I bought 'im a round and he bought me a round
and the bouncer bought us anudder
what's an Irish boy from a good family
doing in the gutter

Well we looked at each other and had to laugh
as we lay there in our stink
well I woulda cried if I woulda thought
but every time I thought I'd drink
and if his poor old gray-haired ma'd
see us there she woulda shuddered
what's an Irish boy from a good family
doing in the gutter

Well my Irish friend he liked to surf
but me I couldn't swim
well he said that he could teach me how
and I said I trusted him
he swore he'd never let me drown
he loved me like a brudder
what's an Irish boy from a good family
doing in the gutter 

Well sure enough I drowned
and I wound up at the pearly gates
where St. Peter said, "You're drunk as
hell and son you shoulda ate"
so he sent me back down to get a bite
but instead I bought anudder
what's an Irish boy from a good family
doing in the gutter

I've finally gotten around to watching it.  I pretty much agree, it certainly wasn't good, but under the constraints they had, it was much better than it could have been.

The HP cons I attend/help run skew 80-90% female attendance. It is interesting to contrast that to a standard SF con.

I'm telling you guys right now, if you aren't watching Agent Carter you are seriously missing out. The last episode was straight-up chilling, and I don't say that lightly.

The scene....



SPOILERS



with Dottie monkey-swinging/gamboling down the entire staircase was worth the entire season. That actress is a true gem - she can come across so wholesome and gee-willickers, but then turn to cray-cray in a pico-second, although the scary Russian dirge that is her leitmotif helps.

+sophie Driedger I think she was referring to the first lesson video, not the entire language :)
