Listeria – The Long Arm of the Law

31 Mar

I am not a big watcher of episodic television. As my family will tell you, I watch weird documentaries on The Smithsonian Channel and National Geographic Channel. However, there are a couple of shows that I watch religiously, and Justified is at the top of that list. I watch each episode as it is recording, then I watch the recording to see if I missed anything.

Raylan Givens, Boyd Crowder and the gang are some of the best characters on television. I know there are other great shows, but, in my mind, this one tops them all. For those who do not know, Raylan is a deputy marshal who grew up in Harlan County, Kentucky, and he has to deal with Boyd, a criminal who he grew up with. Of course, other criminals pop up, and situations usually end up in gunplay.

There are other great shows on television, and Games of Thrones is one that I also watch religiously. The people in Westeros are tough, but I really think that Raylan and Boyd would wreak havoc on the Lannister’s.

The Justified season is about to come to a close, and it has been announced that there is one season to go. In honor of my favorite show, I have decided to list some of my favorite television law enforcement officers. I will not make any comments. A list this great speaks for itself.
