    there are a few light-hearted stand-alone eps like that, mostly early on. i think they’re good fun for the most part but they aren’t the reason i love the show. it becomes more of a saga in the second half of s1 onwards, with plotlines that build over the course of a season with a great cast of mostly villainous characters. stick with it!

    i just watched the one with winona and the money, which is a pretty great stand-alone ep tbh

    Something that weirds me the hell out about Justified is that a song by my brother's country band can be heard in two different episodes of the series.

    "Homesick" by Willy Clay Band. It's not prominently featured or anything but you can hear it playing on a car radio in s03 and then again in a bar or something in s06.

    yea i thought season 1 was whatever the first time i watched it. But really enjoyed it the second time around. Season 2 and especially 4 are where the show really shines.

    what do you think about Claudia being able to break the cycle and the idea that Eve could manipulate things all along? Seemed like it kind of broke the consistency of the show there.

    Well, given which series we're talking about, it's very possible you did watch s3 a year ago.

    I don't know if I can determine if s03 made sense without rewatching the whole series. But the season did lose me the more it invented new rules, like cause and effect becoming unlinked during a nuclear meltdown, for some reason. Definitely felt like there were some ass pulls just so they could undermine the fatalism of closed loop time travel.

    Finished the first season. Gotta say Dark did a crazy good job with casting, not once was I confused as to who some older or younger version of a character was. Plenty of movies couldn't do the job of casting an actor who looked like the older or younger version of a character, yet this show has managed to do just that with a way bigger cast.

    I watched season 1 of that Unhappily Married (mentioned a few pages back...or somewhere). Calling it a MWC rip off is definitely warranted and there was some funny parts in it but if it wasn't for Bobcat I don't think I'd have made through all 13 episodes.

    I also watched the Big Show Show. It wasn't anything special but it was a time waster, it was however good to see Mark Henry and Mick Foley do some pointless acting.

    Yeah, the casting is absolutely bonkers in this regard. It's like they literally traveled in time to film the actors at different ages.
