2. Justified

Justified has always been the best show with the least amount of attention. The cowboy hat-wearing, rule-breaking lawman Raylan Givens is one of the most complex characters on television, with a fascinating history with the criminals of Harlan County, and a wit that adds levity to what could be a bleak show in lesser hands. Timothy Olyphant regularly gives the best performance on television, while being unjustly ignored during awards season. The 2013’s season showed Raylan hunting for the legendary Drew Thompson, who brought cocaine to Harlan County and simultaneously forged Raylan’s path in life by helping make his father Arlo one of the biggest criminals in Harlan. The family histories and backstories are far more complex in Justified than your average show, creating a full world that you can’t help but want to know more about. Hopefully there will be many more seasons of Justified to explore the depths of this world.
