Rewatching this awesome season it just occured to me, if that bar owner didn't have her gun on quarles he would have killed raylon because of his sneaky arm gun. Somehow he wasn't fully high/insane to be that stupid to gamble his life. Very least put him in the hospital would have been more exciting
So i'm on my first rewatch of the series. I'm loving it. Last time I watched the show, Season 4 had just come out so there's lots i've forgotten and lots i've not seen at all, but so help me, I just can't get into the theme song.I understand the reasoning behind it, Raylan is a throwback to another time in a modern world, so the combination of Country and Hip-Hop is a perfect representation of the show, and separately I enjoy both genres of music, but together it just seems crass. It's at odds to the tone of the show and I cringe ever time I hear it.
Am I alone here or do others feel the same?
EDIT: I should make one addendum. The last line of the song, "I see them long hard times to come", is the only decent and bearable part. I don't know whether this is because it's actually good, or because I know that it means the song is over and the episode is about to start. It's about the same either way.
Overall the best part of the show is their relationship
In my opinion Raylan is a good character but he just didn't feel as compelling & human as Boyd. Always a bit too cold/detached and his romances were boring
I like Boyd's development and rise to power (and fall at the end) and Walton Goggins is just such an amazing actor that even though Boyd did some bad shit (especially towards the end) I was rooting for him and against Ava and Raylan
Just finished Season 5 (please no spoilers for Season 6). There's something I didn't understand.
When Boyd was interrogating the prison guard, trying to get him to recant, he just kind of gave up and let him go. I don't understand why. Did he actually believe Ava was sleeping with him?
I would have liked to see how Loretta was doing in the 4 years later bit.
It weirds me out that Winona was with that guy that seemed nice but a bit of a downgrade from Raylan. But I guess it makes sense.
And more Tim. Always more Tim.
This has been on my radar for some team, based on recommendations from Reddit and the strong critical acclaim the show has, so I finally went for it last night. I'm 3 episodes in, and don't want to bail just yet, but I don't care for how episode 1 is a set-up episode and then episodes 2 and 3 don't advance the story at all and are just mini-stories wrapped up in a single episode. Is this how the series is? I like shows with strong story development. Thanks in advance for your 2 cents.
Walton Goggins totally steals that movie. The scene where his character is quizzing Samuel L. Jackson about "the Lincoln Letter" is alone worth the price of rental. We just got through bingeing all six seasons of Justified in about two weeks1, and now I need to re-watch Hateful just to get my Boyd fix.
What are the thoughts on season 4 here? I keep waffling back and forth about whether or not I like it. Season 1 took a bit for me to get hooked, 2 grabbed me from the start, 3 I warmed up to after 3 or so episodes but I am up to 8 now and I’m still on the fence. Something just seems...different. Did the show change show runners or writers at this time? I’ve heard mixed things about 5 too but 6 seems beloved. Gonna stick it out because I’ve mostly enjoyed the ride so far but it is getting to be a bit of a slog. Maybe that’s because I’m binging though.
