'Justified's' Cathy Baron On Season 5 And Dares For Charity

June 1st, 2014 4:01pm EDT
Cathy Baron
On Justified, Cathy Baron is playing a woman of ill repute. Yet off-screen, she's tirelessly working on behalf of a number of good causes. Last year, Cathy partnered with LifeKraze to promote healthy eating, and now she's on Darelicious raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She rejoined BFTV to talk about her latest venture - which involves a gangster rap video (?!) - and her return to Justified this past season.

Darelicious is a different kind of fundraising platform; instead of offering rewards for contributions, those raising money are, as the title suggests, dared to do ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Restitution'
It's that time again: the time in which Justified wraps up another violent, complex and witty season. This time around, it's tempered slightly by the knowledge that next season will be the show's last, and some of the pieces for the ultimate end are already in play. With that in the back of our minds, let's say goodbye to Season 5 and look forward to what this tells us about Season 6.

Daryl Crowe is already mouthing off within the first thirty seconds (and unwisely getting into a staredown with Tim Gutterson; we would not want to cross Jacob Pitts). No one at the Marshals Office is amused ...

Graham Yost On 'Justified's' Season (And Series!) Ending

Graham Yost On 'Justified's' Season (And Series!) Ending
Graham Yost is one of our favorite showrunners of all time, because he's a genius and because he's always willing to explain said genius. Previously, Graham let us pick his brain about The Americans, which he executive produces. But we know him best as the showrunner of Justified, which ends its penultimate season tonight. Here's what Graham had to say about the conclusion of Season 5, the end of the entire series next spring, and the one show on broadcast television that he loves (hint: so do we!)

"You’ll see a big shift in the finale," he said of tonight's episode. "You’ll see what happe...

'Justified' Recap: 'Starvation'
Justified is quickly coming to an end; there's one more episode left in Season 5 after tonight, and then just one more season for one of the best TV series in recent memory. Knowing that, and with what happened last week still on our minds, we're looking for the saga of the Florida Crowes to wrap up in a big way starting now. And we are not disappointed by this next-to-last episode.

Wynn Duffy is telling his colleagues that both Picker and Boyd are dead, but we know this is a lie, and the drug cartel guy he's trying to convince doesn't believe it either. Duffy is willing to say anything to...

'Justified' Recap: 'The Toll'
There are only two episodes of Justified's fifth season left after tonight, so it's no surprise that things have been getting real for awhile now. The death of a Crowe last week is just the beginning of the usual mayhem that leads up to a Justified season finale. Part two is - after foreshadowing it with several episodes of his being limited to ominous cameo appearances - putting Art Mullen in the line of fire.

Having murdered Judith in the prison chapel, Ava is cleaning up in the nearest bathroom when Penny (Danielle Panabaker) appears, and the two try to act like nothing is wrong. It's o...

'Justified' Recap: 'Weight'

March 19th, 2014 8:57am EDT
'Justified' Recap: 'Weight'
Justified started out as more of a family drama than a law enforcement one, and that continues in Season 5 and especially in "Weight," which continues to tell the story of the Florida Crowes as their family continues their tailspin.

While Dewey Crowe seems awfully sane for a guy who hit a DEA agent last week, his family members are making up the crazy, as they're dealing with plenty of problems - including Dewey on the run, Kendal being missing (again) and Raylan investigating the accident that put Agent Miller in the hospital.

Meanwhile, Boyd once again thinks he's one step from freeing ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Wrong Roads'
What happens when Raylan Givens goes on vacation? A lot more than ever would happen on any of our vacations. But that's to be expected, because nobody wants to watch an hour of Justified that involves Raylan taking his daughter to Disney World or looking for a parking space at the mall.

But before we get to that, we're still dealing with the misfit brigade, who've at least managed to find their way into the United States, so they've accomplished something since we saw them last. They're still trying to move product back into the country, while Boyd and Daryl are drinking in the back office...

'Justified' Recap: 'Whistle Past The Graveyard'
Can you believe we're in the home stretch of Season 5 of Justified? Neither can we, but this is indeed the eighth of thirteen episodes in the penultimate season. Maybe it's also a placeholder for the final four, too, because it's lacking something outside of a strong performance by Alicia Witt.

After a whole bunch of people got shot up last week, Boyd and the Crowes are not popular with their international business partners; they get to live, but the partnership is on very unsteady ground. Our ragtag band of criminals finds themselves having to get dead bodies back across the border, along...

'Justified' Recap: 'Raw Deal'
After its Olympic hiatus, Justified is back, and it was definitely worth waiting two weeks for. While the show continues to find ways to push Alison into the plot, everyone else has plenty to deal with, whether it's Raylan being taunted by an unlikely foe or Boyd and Johnny finally having it out with each other.

Daryl and Danny Crowe are arming up for their new "business trip," which is going to send them, Dewey (Damon Herriman) and Boyd to Mexico in search of Johnny (David Meunier). Meanwhile, Ava is still sporting several reminders of being jumped in the prison yard, and Penny (Danielle ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Kill The Messenger'
How do you follow up a pivotal episode of Justified? Break some stuff, kidnap some guys, and make Raylan Givens angry. This is basically everything that any sane person should never do, which means damned if it isn't fun to watch.

Art's already kind of drunk when Raylan finds him, which isn't a good sign. A worse sign is Art punching Raylan, which seems to indicate that Art has put all the pieces regarding Nicky Augustine's death together. The look on Raylan's face as Art leaves him there says all we need to know. And that's our entire teaser. One scene with one word of dialogue in it. How...

Justified: Best And Worst Moments Of 'Shot All To Hell'

February 5th, 2014 1:46pm EST
Justified
Well, this episode certainly was all over the place, wasn’t it? It’s pretty par for the course for season 5. Every episode so far seems to overdose on storylines, without sticking around to the really compelling scenes for very long. Here are the best and worst moments from “Shot All to Hell.”

Best: The Old Boyd is Back

For the first few episodes this season, Boyd spent most of his time meandering through plotlines. He had a mission to get Ava out of prison, but it lead him on many different paths, including dealing with Detroit bad guys, Mara the Russian bride, and Mooney the corrupt cop...

'Justified' Recap: 'Shot All To Hell'
When the showrunner tells you this is one of the most important episodes in the series, you come into it with seriously high expectations. But seriously, when has Justified not delivered? Bodies fall, hearts get broken, and Raylan's credibility takes a hit in this week's top-shelf episode.

An "anonymous tip" has led our resident Sheriff Jackass to find the dead bodies that Boyd uncovered at the end of last week's festivities, and he calls Paxton in the middle of the night because the tipster also stated that Paxton "made a deal with the local criminal element." Yes, Mr. Paxton, Boyd Crowde...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Over The Mountain'
Justified knows how to turn the screws. This week, everybody dislikes everybody, and we still end up winning.

Things are still not that great for Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman), who's wandering around in the woods in the middle of the night looking for money he buried a long time ago so that he can use it to get away from his crazy relatives. Or at least that's the story he told Wade, who he shoots for stealing money from the whorehouse on Boyd's orders. When the bullet doesn't do the job, Dewey beats Wade with his own shovel. Now he's got to hide the body, butwhen he gets back, there's no W...

Best: Everything’s Not Coming Up Dewey

Dewey is by far the funniest character on Justified. His argument over Messer’s sad, tiny shovel before trying to beat him with it was classic Dewey. Even though he tries to step up as an in-charge baddie, Dewey can’t kill Messer without screwing up as many times as possible. The shovel breaks, he loses Messer, he falls down a gigantic hill, he wanders through the muck to find Messer again, and just as he’s about to finish the job he’s “rescued” by a cute family that thinks he has sun stroke. Nothing can go right in this guy’s life and it’s fun to wat...

The Best Moments of “Good Intentions”

Timothy Olyphant was half naked within the first five minutes. God bless you, Justified.

Monroe’s house is a gold mine of plot. Raylan is the last person in the world who should be in a large home. He’s made for small spaces, like his motel from the early seasons and the room above the bar. Raylan needs to constantly be in spaces where he can see everything and every one. His residence in the Monroe house is only going to lead to more trouble. Awesome.

Speaking of the Monroe house, Rachel has moved in. Raylan and Rachel being roommates is the perfe...

After last week's not so sterling episode, Justified is back to its old ways. Picking up right where things left off, Boyd is still searching for his drugs, leading him to accuse Wynn of ripping him off, at least until Wynn points out there's like a half-dozen suspects. And Raylan is busy getting laid, at least until Art ruins it. Thank you, Art.

Our boss marshal tells Raylan that Monroe (the guy he arrested last week, played by Xander Berkeley) will be out tomorrow and probably pissed that Raylan is using his house as a hotel. Raylan doesn't really care, because he's fixated on Alison (Am...

'Justified': The Best and Worst Of 'The Kids Aren't Alright'

January 15th, 2014 1:30pm EST
Justified
Yesterday, the depressing yet predictable news that Justified would end in its sixth season was released. Although it’ll be sad to see this amazing show, filled with some of the most redeemable, charming characters in television history, go, it’ll be interesting to watch the trajectory of this season to see where the show will be heading in its final season. Will Raylan and Boyd have a show-down that will head towards them being major adversaries next year? Is a major event going to change Raylan’s outlook on the law and his place within it?

Everything that happens this season will point t...

Justified
If you thought last week's episode of Justified was packed full of TV goodness, then you'll love this week. Not only do we have three actors who should be immediately recognizable to any small-screen aficionado, but we've also brought back the great (and greatly underused) members of the show's own supporting cast, in telling a mostly standalone story that serves as a fantastic anti-drug PSA.

Two very not-nice dudes (played by Wood Harris of The Wire and Steve Harris of The Practice, who are actually related) are beating up a third guy for screwing up their business, and then decide to sho...

FX Confirms 'Justified' Set To End After Sixth Season

Crime drama Justified is set to end after its sixth season, FX CEO John Landgraf confirmed during conference on Tuesday during the TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter Press Tour.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, star Timothy Olyphant and producer Graham Yost made the decision to bring the Emmy-winning show to an end and informed Landgraf, who wasn't wasn't thrilled about cutting a season off the seven that were originally planned.

'Justified' Season 5 Premiere: The Finest Words Around

January 9th, 2014 7:13am EST
Justified
A good laconic, trash-talking, smart and sassy debut of Justified season 5 this week.  Among the high points -

Raylan electing to talk to Winona and see their baby via Skype, rather than in person, even though Raylan is not very far away in Florida.  Sort of says it all about Raylan's inability to fully relate emotionally, and come to terms with the people he loves, doesn't it?  It was a quiet, very powerful scene.

Wendy Crowe - sister of villain Darryl Crowe - catching Raylan's and everyone's eye.  A good addition to the cast and a good potential romantic interest for Raylan.

Best: Elmore Leonard Tribute

Before the show even began, FX ran an Elmore Leonard tribute, which discussed his literary history and his simple, classic style of writing that managed to capture mood, character, and setting in the least amount of words possible. I’ve been a huge fan of Leonard’s work for a while, so I was very happy that they gave him more than just a black screen with his name. Although it was a quick tribute, having it before the show began ensured that people would watch it. If I had any complaints it is that it could have been a few minutes longer to discuss his influenc...

After four impressive seasons, Justified has become like a welcome houseguest; you expect to see it come back and you know that when it does, it's going to be worth the wait. Still led by the unstoppable Timothy Olyphant, season five is everything we love about this show and then a little extra something, too.

The first few minutes of the season premiere play out like a Kentucky-based episode of Law & Order. Raylan's in court being taken to task for his less-than-civil handling of bad guys, while Boyd is visiting an incarcerated Ava to assure her that he's working steadily toward her relea...

Top 5 Things We'd Like To See In Justified's 5th Season

January 7th, 2014 10:20am EST
Justified
1. Classic Raylan

Part of the fun of Justified is the many quirks of the main character, Raylan. Season 4 saw a more somber version of our cowboy hat wearing hero. And for good reason. His father had tried to kill him and then was murdered in prison partially because of Raylan’s actions, all before Raylan’s own child’s birth. That’s definitely enough to ruin anybody’s good mood. Hopefully, Raylan doesn’t continue down the same dark and depressing path. The best version of Raylan Givens is the wisecracking, gun-toting lawman who can’t help but relate a bit too much to the criminals he’s so ...

5 Best TV Shows Of 2013

December 26th, 2013 4:00pm EST
The Good Wife
Every year a new crop of shows pop up, while the old crop strives to keep the audience’s attention. Some shows fall from grace, transforming from fan favorites to overrated dreck. Other shows maintain or succeed the quality that viewers have come to expect from their favorite programs. This year many returning shows had their best season ever, while new programs wowed new audiences. The shows on this list are the best 2013 had to offer.

1. The Good Wife

Alicia Florrick spent four seasons living up to the show’s title, acting like a sweet, mild-mannered lawyer who helps her clients, with h...

Hundreds Attend The Funeral Of Writer Elmore Leonard

Friends and family of crime novelist Elmore Leonard gathered in Michigan to pay their final respects to the writer on Saturday.

Over 300 people gathered at the Holy Name Catholic Church in Birmingham for the memorial service, where the Rev. Joe Grimaldi paid tribut in his eulogy.

"Elmore truly was gifted with creativity, skill and talent," Grimaldi said during the service. "The twinkle in his eye showed he also enjoyed having fun."

Leonard's son Christopher paid tribute to his father, saying, "When I hug my brothers and sisters, I'll be hugging my father. When I see them, I'll see my dad...

'Under The Dome' 1.9: The New Woman

Under the Dome
Leave it to Under the Dome to pull a rabbit out of a hat - or a major new powerful character we haven't seen before - in episode 1.9, with the summer series three quarters over.   Well, in all fairness, she did play an important role in the very first episode.  Barbie was talking to her on the phone when he was burying Julia's husband Peter.

This gives some plausibility to how Maxine got into the dome - she was already in Chester's Mill when the dome descended - though of course she could have been anywhere in the world on the other end of the phone connection to Barbie.  And the phone cal...

Jim Beaver Talks 'Justified,' Leaving 'Supernatural' And Whether He’ll Be Back On 'Breaking Bad'

Jim Beaver on 'Justified'
There’s not many offers to interview celebrities that come in my inbox that get me as excited as the one I received a few weeks ago. You might not even know his name, but odds are, you know some of his roles.

Jim Beaver is an actor I’ve followed for years, mostly because he’s had memorable roles in some of my favorite shows in the world ranging from Breaking Bad to Supernatural to Justified.

We covered all of his big roles in a recent interview. If you’re not caught up on all of those shows, you may want to steer clear of spoilers.

Nominations for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards are just over a month away, and there's one name that deserves to be on the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series ballot: Justified star Joelle Carter.

No character on the hit FX series has gone through more changes than Carter's Ava Crowder, who began the show as the charming love interest for U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (played by Timothy Olyphant), before transforming into the criminal queen of Harlan County alongside husband-to-be Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). Particularly in seasons three and four of Justified, we've seen such depth i...

Season four of Justified is at an end, and that means it's time to see if the hammer is going to fall on any or all of the usual suspects. If this series is known for one thing, it's that it likes to end its years with a bang...sometimes more than one. What happens in this last piece of season four, though, comes with more questions than answers.

At the Marshals Office, a satisfied Raylan declares that "All is right with the world," which Art doesn't quite believe. He says he got a call from Winona about having two rocking chairs, since there's the suspicious one that showed up last week. ...

Rachel quips). Drew is in the conference room, meeting with the AUSA (guest star Rick Gomez), because he's demanding protection for Ellen May. Raylan's response is "Stick it up your ass."

Where's Ellen May? She's with Ellstin Limehouse (gue...
