So I discovered this show just 2 days… and there had been this one specific question roaming around in my mind.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?!?! OMG HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN THIS IGNORANT OF THIS FUCKING MINDBLOWING SHOW???
Well this means this means one thing - MARATHOOOOONNNNNN
OK *calms self down now* now coming to the show, I was a bit skeptic of watching it when I read the plot and I thought to myself “Oh, a cop drama”. I never really got into these kind of genres but hearing so much positive reviews about them and especially coming from critics, I decided to give it a go.
And boy, was I in for a long fucking ride! From the very first opening of the pilot episode, I was totally blown away by it. Such intensity and grittiness, so much raw and real performance. I could have never imagined a show like to have the right amount of action; right amount of thrill; right amount of humour. It’s absolute legit!
Big plus for eye candy of course ;) I was always fond of Timothy Olyphant since Hitman and Die Hard 4.0. This stunning man is not only 6 ft tall of perfection but a very brilliant and a versatile actor. Raylan Givens, hands down is now my most favourite tv character ever created! He’s so fucking bad-ass, intelligent, witty and yet a charmer that makes you swoon like there’s no tomorrow. Tim breathes so much life in to him; he was born to do this role.
Big shout out to Walton Goggins (who plays Boyd) too! Another actor to look for. He is sure to catch your attention from the pilot episode along with Tim. That man is a chameleon, he has so many layers to him. He can be very simple at one moment then so complex at the next. When I feel like I have figured him out, he always goes and proves me wrong. He’s so unpredictable. Boyd is sure to grow on you and will remain with you for quite a while.
Now how would I rate this show? Duh! No guesses needed here!
