Great cast, especially in supporting roles. Southerners are presented accurately, as complex characters not stereotypes. Very well written, though one entire season suffered when the head writer apparently developed a (serious) methamphetamine habit. I hate the idea of interventions, but why punish the viewers with an entire season of mediocre nonsense, when sacrificing some producer's kid was so clearly necessary. Promises Malibu is a country club not a prison. What ever happened to the Good of the Many?

Justified has nothing to do with turtles, so don't go expecting to see any. The premise of the show was a little misleading. I thought there would be at least the occasional turtle. These things happen. Not a bad program otherwise.

Just purchased this and it will not play. Every episode I have tried to watch with play does not work, every time the rental period has expired immediately after I purchase it.
