We highly recommend you watch (or re-watch) Season 2 of Justified to see Margo Martindale… instead of tuning in to The Millers

This show rarely fails to meet my expectations, but if there isn’t a Season Five Uncle Tim/Aunt Rachel scene, I just don’t even know what.

RaylanRating: 3 out of 5 bean bag rounds We usually count on Raylan to be the toughest guy on the show, but this season, he was basically on the run from Winona and his unborn daughter, allowed a bartender to trade in his hard-earned cash into chickens and almost got killed by hill people and idiot Jody Adair. Considering most of this happened within a few days of his dad dying, we’ll give him a bit of a pass, but still. There was only one Big Lebowski reference all season!Most Badass Moment: Shooting down the fake-deputy who was about to kill Boyd and Ava, right after commenting on Ava’s sparkly new engagement ring. Oh, and tying Boyd to a tree.

Constable BobRating: 5 out of 5 go bagsEven Raylan agrees that “Bob’s a tough son of a bitch,” given that he was the brain power (well, maybe just had a few well-placed motion detectors) behind discovering the Waldo Truth mystery. Most Badass Moment: His showdown with Yoo-Hoo Yoda Yolo, where he refused to give away Raylan and Shelby’s hideout, even if it meant getting the crap kicked out of him. We’ve never loved Patton Oswalt more than when we sunk his knife into Yolo’s leg and shot him dead… except for when he stabbed blowjob-offering Roz in the foot earlier in the season.

It Arrived Before The CloserIt’s easy to forget in a TV landscape currently populated by shows like Scandal, Body of Proof, Rizzoli & Isles, The Good Wife and the recently cancelled In Plain Sight, but back in 2003, female-led procedurals were a rare find. And those procedurals that did have major female characters always paired them with a dude that got equal (if not more) amounts of screentime, think Marg Helgenberger on CSI: Original Flavoror Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU. It took Kyra Sedgwick’s Brenda Leigh Johnson to burst through that glass ceiling (in the U.S. anyway; Prime Suspect's Jane Tennison — who Johnson was modeled after — broke the barrier across the pond) on TNT's out of the box hit, The Closer, which premiered in 2005. That was two years too late for Karen Sisco, which positioned its cool, confident heroine at the center of all the crime-related action rather than playing back-up to a male alpha dog. (The only consistent male presences on the series were Karen’s dad, played terrifically by Robert Forster, and her boss, the eternally exasperated Bill Duke.) Today, Karen would be one of many badass female lawwomen on the air, like Justified's own Rachel Brooks (who, of course, isn't the lead on that show… but maybe she should be). At the time, she was something of a trailblazer — one that a mass audience maybe wasn't entirely prepared to accept.

Hee. Also, can I just point out that this season has seen Roz get stabbed in the foot, Josiah Cairn lose his foot, Yolo get stabbed in the leg, and now Kush take a bullet to the foot. I don’t know if I’d resort to wearing body armor in Harlan, but at the very least shin guards and steel-toed boots seem like a good idea.
