JUSTIFIED
January 20, 2015  | By David Bianculli

FX, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

SEASON PREMIERE: With Breaking Bad gone, this drama series from FX gets my vote as the best current series on television, and it starts its current (and final) season superbly. This final run gives Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan some more deliciously strong and unpredictable adversaries. One is played by veteran laconic tough guy Sam Elliott – and another, introduced in this Season 6 opener, is played by Garret Dillahunt (pictured), who was so good opposite Olyphant’s Seth Bullock in HBO’s Deadwood that Dillahunt got to play two very different bad guys. And here he is, back for round three, in a crackling strong story line that, while servicing these new characters cleverly, keeps its central focus on the characters who have been at the core of Justified from the start: Raylan, Walton Goggins’ Boyd, and Joelle Carter’s Ava. Wonderful actors all.
