Here at TV Squad HQ, no one really jumped at the chance to review the premiere of 'Justified,' and that's not meant to belittle or embarrass any of the writers (except for one, you know who you are and my mother still hasn't forgiven you). We're a busy bunch.

It's a wonder FX hasn't tried to turn one of his large and eclectic works of crime fiction into a series until now. 'Maximum Bob' would have worked a hell of a lot better on FX than it ever did on ABC.
