Justified‘s Timothy Oliphant: giddy-yup
Justified premieres Sunday night at 10 p.m. on Showcase.
The compelling drama, which began on FX in 2010, was already available in Canada but on Super Channel, a premium pay service.
“I probably shouldn’t be saying this,” Justified showrunner and executive producer Graham Yost told me at the January TCA press tour, “but my brother would subscribe to Super Channel in British Columbiathe week before it started airing and cancel as soon as it ended.”
Viewers who have been enjoying Justified on Super Channel can go right on watching Season Three episodes there. Showcase is showing the very first episode and continuing with Season One this spring.
Inspired by a character created by author Elmore Leonard, the drama stars Timothy Oliphant as a brooding bounty hunter with a penchant for cowboy hats and an itchy trigger finger. The exposure on Showcase should allow more Canadians to see what all the fuss is about. Read more about Justified here at this article I wrote for The Canadian Press.
By the way, as at least one reader has pointed out, Season One of Justified can also be seen in Canada on Netflix.

  1. Brilliant show. Odd, but brilliant. Hard to describe, but we were hooked last summer. Looking forward to S3, waiting for it on iTunes – along WITH the second season of ‘The Killing’.
