How’s the weather in AIDS-land?"

One of my favorite shows ever started this week (on FX) with a new season, so you get this now :D
Watch this show. IT’S GOOD! :)
In the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky
That’s the place where I trace my bloodline
And it’s there I read on a hillside gravestone
You will never leave Harlan alive
And with that, Justified delivered another perfect season. The show gets to the Super Bowl every year, and every year leaves with the rings.
Here’s Dave Alvin’s cover of “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive”, from “Ghosts”, the fourth season finale of Justified.
Played 1769 times.
But the times got hard and tobacco wasn’t selling
And ole granddad knew what he’d do to survive
He went and dug for Harlan coal
And sent the money back to granny
But he never left Harlan alive
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
And the sun goes down about three in the day
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinking
And you spend your life just thinkin’ of how to get away
Why are you lyin’ to me, Colt?
I rewound and watched this scene over and over and over and over. Great fucking television.
Boyd’s reaction? Boyd and Ava with the gunfight between them? Raylan and Ava discussing the engagement right before? None of them knowing what was happening? Justified is the best.
From the AV Club’s review of the pilot of FX’s The Americans, which I just watched (four weeks late), and I agree, it was a brilliant opening, and it’s use of “Tusk” was fantastic. With a matched ending, the pilot did it’s job: I now want to watch the rest of this new series.
And hey, guess what, with The Americans picked up for a second season, now is the perfect time to marathon it’s first four episodes!
