    I just heard this evening on E News that Vegas is probably being dropped. It is not confirmed.

    I was very glad to hear this, I love this show. Though I will say that Season 3 was kinda disappointing to me, I was glad to see Season 4 get so much better.

    Got my mom set up to watch this on her tablet, from Amazon IIRC.
    She's a native of (Bloody) Harlan county, KY where the story is set so was very interested in the show.
    I was too as I'm almost a native, folks moved away about a month before I showed up. But found out that it's actually filmed in Pennsylvania & California. I still plan on watching but it's slipped a bit in my priority list.

    For those interested there's an Oscar award-winning documentary on the last days of the Harlan County coal mining strikes and strife available called Harlan County USA.
    Also a Holly Hunter movie version called Harlan County War.

    This show can go on and on and on. The plot of this season has been very light. I was hoping for more from the preacher, but he died after the snake bite. The best season is still number two, with Mags and her sons and the family land. That was a great season.

    And the best episode was when Mags died. She was a miserable individual who liked to poison people with her goofy "moonshine".

    I've noticed that most of these "bad" people manage to get it sooner or later.

    The writing is great and the acting is great. Walton Goggins is off the hook.

    And it is probably my first look at Timothy Olyphant, but then I am not sure. I have always loved that he created such an iconic character. Who's cooler than Raylan Givens?

    What makes his character all the more amazing is that Olyphant himself is shockingly nothing at all like his character. He was being interviewed on a talk show and it was on in the background and I finally looked up because the voice sounded a little familiar. But I could not recognize him. He is very chameleon-like and even looks different in real life. I was also thrown off for some time in this interview by his mannerisms and speech patterns, which are nothing at all similar to Raylan Givens. He is so different I had to watch for 10 minutes before I realized who he was; I didn't know from Timothy Olyphant, I only knew Raylan Givens. But that his character is so finely drawn and different from the actor is I guess a testament to how talented he is.

    If you've never seen Deadwood (HBO series), Olyphant is pretty good in that. It's the first I'd ever seen him. Plenty of good actors and acting in that series. I never tire of the first episode.

    I think he also played an interesting character in the movie The Girl Next Door. If I remember correctly, kind of a thuggy porn producer.

    The Crazies was a pretty decent flick with Mr O in it.

    I've seen that. It is pretty good. He was also in Damages for a bit, too.

    Although I first noticed him in "Deadwood", Olyphant has worked pretty steadily since 1995. Check his IMDb page actor listing.

    I think the first time I really took notice of him was in the movie Hitman and the HBO series Deadwood.

    The guys just a good actor.

    Season 5 has just started airing but we learn It's Official: 'Justified' to End After Season 6 From the article:

    I think it's probably a wise decision. My only other comment is about "The Western" description. I'm old enough to remember that one of the elements of the "Western" genre was "telling stories set primarily in the later half of the 19th century in the American Old West, hence the name." And while Wikipedia does acknowledge that sometimes there are "Western-type characters in contemporary settings" I can't call this show a "Western." It's not even set in the West, for goodness sake.
