Tuesday, March 16, 2010: Justified

Timothy Olyphant's second-most-written-about cowboy show premieres tonight, and in classic FX fashion, it is bloody, gory, gritty fun. Olyphant plays a Kentucky marshall who talks straight and shoots to kill in a small town full of white supremacists, psychotic dentists, con men and all manner of hooligans. It's just genre enough to be familiar without relying on as many cliches as my previous two sentences make it sound, and it's really a joy to watch.

It's an interesting departure for FX, actually, because it's this quirky, funny show that's really quite upbeat and lighthearted at times, but then out of nowhere it'll just become a bloodbath. I've been describing it as something akin to an extremely violent USA Network show -- and I mean that as a compliment.

Deadwood: The Next Generation Justified premieres on FX tonight at 10 PM, but if Seth Bullock somehow never captured your heart our Week in Preview has other options.
