'Justified' Actress Cathy Baron Teams With LifeKraze To Promote Healthy Eating

March 26th, 2013 11:35am EDT
Cathy Baron
On FX's Justified, Cathy Baron has been playing a woman of questionable repute, but off-screen this multitalented actress is helping people to improve their lives. Dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle, Cathy is lending her experience and enthusiasm to LifeKraze, a new app that helps others put their best selves forward. BFTV recently spoke with her to get her tips on eating better - and snuck in a little Justified chat, too.

"it's never as hard as people think it's going to be," said the actress, who is vegan and has a degree in Nutrition. "You have to stick with it. Once you start eati...

'Justified' Recap: 'Decoy'

March 20th, 2013 9:20am EDT
Things are definitely hitting the fan in this week's Justified. While the Marshals try to get Drew Thompson someplace safe - you have to love Art inquiring about a rocket launcher - Boyd is trying to appease an unhappy Nick Augustine (guest star Mike O'Malley; can you believe this is the guy who used to host Nickelodeon's GUTS?).

Holed up in his father's house, Raylan recounts history with Drew (guest star Jim Beaver), at least until Art comes in and gives him a status update. "Art, we gotta move, and we gotta move soon," Raylan insists. That's a good idea, because Boyd is telling Augustin...

'Justified' Recap: 'Get Drew'

March 13th, 2013 9:20am EDT
Now that we know who Drew Thompson is, Justified is all about what everyone else wants with him - and that also means the return of a great character from Season 3.

After getting the drop on Boyd, he and Raylan are having a little chat, while the Marshals are looking through Drew's (guest star Jim Beaver) house. Boyd quips that Raylan's two favorite activities are being an asshole and shooting people. It's hard to argue with that.  Raylan, Tim and Rachel try to figure out where Drew will go next. As it turns out, he's in his office, advising Ellen May (guest star Abby Miller) what to do on...

'Justified' Recap: 'The Hatchet Tour'

March 6th, 2013 9:20am EST
"The Hatchet Tour" is the ninth episode of Justified's fourth cycle, meaning that after Tuesday, we're officially into the last quarter of the season. That's the perfect time to finally reveal the identity of Drew Thompson. But then what?

The episode opens on a very cranky note. Tim is not happy to find his friend Mark's dead body at a drug dealer's house. He cooperates with the investigating officers, but it's clear the wheels in his the most underappreciated Deputy Marshal's head are already turning. Elsewhere, Tim's psuedo-partner Raylan is collecting Hunter (guest star Brent Sexton) fr...

BFTV's 12 Best TV Drama Series Ever

March 1st, 2013 1:46pm EST
This week's issue of TV Guide featured that magazine's picks for the best dramas of all time. It's not a simple discussion, because there are and have been so many fantastic drama series on TV over the ages - some of which have gotten recognition and others that have flown largely under the radar. Here, then, is BFTV's list of the 12 best drama series I've seen over the last three decades - and why they've earned that recognition.

The following were the criteria for inclusion:

01) It had to be a series that I'd seen at least one full season of. It's not really fair to call something the "...

'Justified' Recap: 'Outlaw'

February 27th, 2013 9:15am EST
In the universe of Justified, everyone bleeds eventually. This is one of those installments.

Since he's had such great luck with prison conversations (see last week's episode), Raylan decides to pay a visit to former Sheriff Hunter (Brent Sexton, Life) to see what he knows about the mysterious Drew Thompson. Hunter is more amused than interested, and wants to know why Raylan cares. He doesn't get a straight answer.

Later on, Arlo is being hauled in for an unscheduled shave, appearing pretty much comatose. Hunter appears out of nowhere and knocks the barber unconscious, but before he can d...

'Suits' and 4 Other Unexpected Shows That Have Us Yelling At The TV

February 21st, 2013 9:30am EST
Tonight is the season finale of USA's Suits, which is the best show on television. There are so many reasons to love it, like compelling characters played to near-perfection by an ensemble cast, led by Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams. Then there are the plots. Courtroom drama has always been interesting to watch; that's how we sustained twenty seasons of NBC's Law & Order, after all. But Suits doesn't need to have court in session to be crackling. Whether a scene takes place in the halls of Pearson Hardman or on the streets of New York, it's good. So good, in fact, that we've caught ours...

'Justified' Recap: 'Money Trap'

February 20th, 2013 9:10am EST
Raylan Givens can't seem to catch a break. In this week's Justified episode, crafted from a story idea co-written by none other than the legendary Elmore Leonard himself, that's bad for Raylan but great for those of you scoring at home.

Six days ago, Raylan was turning Jody Adair (guest star Chris Chalk) - the guy he caught and stuffed in his trunk in the season premiere - over to his old friend the bail bondswoman. Once she's got her prey, she moons over Raylan for a bit to her partner, but is shut up by the need to make a sudden pit stop. Once she's gone, Jody explodes out of the back of...

'Justified' Recap: 'Foot Chase'

February 13th, 2013 2:10am EST
After Raylan discovered Josiah Cairn's severed foot at the end of last week's Justified, the race is on to find the rest of him. How hard can it be to locate a guy with one foot? First we can't find Waldo, now we can't find this guy...geez.

We'll get to that in a minute. Colt and Boyd, in ski masks, are paying a visit to a guy named Dale, and it's not pleasant. Because nobody ever shows up in a ski mask to give you cake. Boyd is convinced that Dale is the long sought-after Drew Thompson, but he's proven wrong by some high school memorabilia. With an awkward apology, he and Colt take their ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Kin'

February 6th, 2013 9:15am EST
Now that we're digging deeper into the Justified season, things are getting especially dicey - not that they're ever that calm in Harlan County.

Picking up where the last installment left off, Colt (guest star Ron Eldard) is still trying to locate Ella Mae, who took off running while he was preparing to kill her. He uses his old military police ID to get the gas-station attendant to let him watch the security camera tapes, and doesn't like what he sees.

Meanwhile, Raylan meets ex-wife and current baby mama Winona (Natalie Zea) for her next doctor's appointment. He semi-brags about being i...

David Meunier: Meet One of 'Justified's' Best Supporting Actors

February 5th, 2013 9:16am EST
David Meunier
Justified's Kentucky is full of memorable characters. Beyond the show's phenomenal leads is an ensemble rich in talent. One of those excellent supporting actors is David Meunier, who's become a mainstay as Boyd Crowder's cousin and right-hand man, Johnny Crowder. BFTV recently checked in with David to learn more about the man behind Johnny and see what's ahead for him in season four of Justified.

"Every day I go to work on Justified, I tell myself I'm glad I stuck with [acting]," said David, who first got involved in the craft while in college. "I think one of the things that really got me...

Stuntwoman Sues 'Justified' After Being Hit By Truck

February 3rd, 2013 10:00am EST
A stuntwoman injured on the set of drama Justified is suing TV bosses over the accident. 

Lisa Hoyle was left in a critical condition after she was hit by a truck during filming of the show in Los Angeles in February, 2011. 

She survived, but now she is suing the TV executives behind Justified, claiming they should have done more to protect her. 

In the lawsuit, filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, Hoyle reveals she suffered an open head fracture, soft-tissue injuries, bruising and lacerations, and alleges she wasn't told exactly how the stunt would play out because the co-ordinator held...

'Justified' Recap: 'This Bird Has Flown'

January 30th, 2013 1:58am EST
After his latest fling Lindsey ransacked his apartment and took off with her husband Randall, Raylan Givens is not in a good mood and understandably so. This week's Justified picks up right where last week's left off, with Rachel telling Raylan he "should've seen this coming," and Raylan predictably refusing to call in the crime. Rachel points out how little he knows about Lindsey, and asks what he plans to do when he finds her and Randall. Raylan doesn't answer her.

The guilty couple are visiting Randall's backyard fight promoter (guest star Josh Close), who's throwing an awkward party, t...

January 29th, 2013 11:30am EST
Tonight, Justified airs “The Bird Has Flown,” the fourth episode of the season.

We’ve already seen it and have ten teases for what fans can expect tonight. *ALERT - If you’re afraid of spoilers, turn away now.

1. You find out within the opening minutes whether or not Lindsey left with Randall willingly or not.

4. Someone wants to get into the cock fighting business.

5. Sheriff Shelby remains under Boyd’s thumb.

6. Randall lets his temper get the ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Truth or Consequences'

January 23rd, 2013 6:30am EST
Picking up almost right from where last week's episode left off, this week's Justified starts on an eerily calm note. Pastor Billy's sister has a late-night conversation with Boyd Crowder, who suggests that she might be "the brains" of Last Chance Holiness Church. He says he'd like to see her brother "shift focus away from me and mine," which she's willing to do for a price. "You want us gone, you're going to have to build us a place to go," she tells Boyd, adding that "We're not afraid of you."

After that, Colt (guest star Ron Eldard) returns to the church with another of Boyd's henchmen,...

'Justified' Recap: 'Where's Waldo?'

January 16th, 2013 7:45am EST
Justified may have started slow last week, but with Tuesday's episode, the FX drama has come roaring back.

If you couldn't figure it out from the title, Raylan is looking for Waldo Truth - when he's done sleeping with Lindsey and then volunteering to help her with the bar's impending delivery. When he says "How hard can it be?" you know something is going to go wrong. In this case, a random guy walks into the bar, says a few things that he probably thinks make him sound tough, and wanders back out before Raylan can figure out what his issue is.

Meanwhile, Ella Mae tells Ava about the "sal...

'Justified' Recap: 'Hole in the Wall' (Season Premiere)

January 9th, 2013 9:15am EST
Certain things about Justified never change. There's always likely to be some kind of armed standoff. There's always someone with a secret, possibly more than one. And no matter what the story, something always comes back to history or to family. All of those things are true about "Hole in the Wall" - and yet, surprisingly for this usually excellent series, the episode doesn't quite gel together.

Season four opens with a flashback to January, 1983, when a disgruntled husband finds a dead body that's literally fallen to earth in the middle of his suburban street - bringing with him what l...

Timothy Olyphant on 'Justified' Season 4: 'We're Looking for the Unexpected'

January 8th, 2013 9:15am EST
Raylan Givens is back for more. The Kentucky marshal with the quick draw and faster wit returns tonight as FX's Justified begins a new season, and series star and co-executive producer Timothy Olyphant, spoke recently about what's ahead for his alter-ego and how the hit drama series continues to stand out amongst a crowded television landscape.

(SPOILER ALERT - This interview contains information about season 4 of Justified and spoilers for some events in season 3.)

"We're doing our best to try to keep the story both familiar and unexpected," said Olyphant. "When we sit down to concoct ...

'Justified: The Complete Third Season' Blu-Ray Reviewed

January 7th, 2013 9:00am EST
As the fourth season of FX's hit series Justified begins tomorrow, Sony has recently released Justified: The Complete Third Season on Blu-Ray and DVD. Here's a look at what's inside the Blu-Ray version of the title.

There's not much to say about Justified that hasn't already been said after three seasons of deserved critical acclaim. The series is one of the best on television. It's anchored by Timothy Olyphant (Live Free or Die Hard, FX's own Damages), who gives one of the great individual performances in the history of the medium - it's a crime that he hasn't won an Emmy yet. No one el...

'Justified' Recap: Bad Things Happen When 'Guy Walks Into A Bar'

March 21st, 2012 2:04am EDT
Justified keeps going strong this week, as Raylan and Quarles have another confrontation that makes up one of the best scenes in the show's history. If Timothy Olyphant or Neal McDonough don't win an Emmy, I will be shocked.

Nothing good ever happens past nightfall in Kentucky, at least on this show. There are two sheriff's deputies planting drugs in Shelby's truck, for one. He stops them with his shotgun, but it's clear they're playing dirty in Harlan County. Shelby then talks to Boyd, who decides he doesn't want his friend going anywhere alone from that point on. He goes to vis...

'Justified' Recap: Tying Up 'Loose Ends'

March 14th, 2012 2:03am EDT
Even the best Justified villain has to fall. And with only five episodes left in the show's third season, this is the beginning of what should be a fantastic end.

We start at the end of another long day for Raylan (does he even have short days?), as he contemplates what to do with the gun that killed his ex-wife's second husband. He stashes it in his apartment and then decides to inspect the ceiling.

The next morning, he's summoned into Art's office. Art wants to know what Raylan has on Quarles "right now that you can prove." After the resulting silence, he tells Raylan that until Quarl...

Neal McDonough Takes 'Justified' To Another Level

March 13th, 2012 2:00pm EDT
Neal McDonough
It was a tall order to follow up Margo Martindale's award-winning villainy on Justified. Yet veteran actor Neal McDonough has done just that and more.

He is the man behind Detroit mobster Robert Quarles, the latest adversary to cross paths with the infamous Raylan Givens, as played perfectly by Timothy Olyphant. When playing against an actor of Olyphant's caliber, one must be at a certain higher level already. But what makes McDonough a fantastic choice, the choice that I can't believe it took this long to think of, is that he doesn't just hold his own; watching him, one gets the sense tha...

Q&A: Behind The Badge With 'Psych' Star Timothy Omundson

February 29th, 2012 11:00am EST
At the beginning of this season of Psych, I chatted with Maggie Lawson -- now, as the show returns, it's time for her partner Timothy Omundson (also known as the infamous Detective Carlton Lassiter) to have his say.

While I enjoy the talents of every member of Psych's fun and funny cast, I have a certain affection for Omundson, who's made Lassiter my favorite disgruntled detective on television. His deadpan delivery and expressions are always spot-on, and he's a great straight man for the oft-hyper antics required of star James Roday.

What you might not know is that in addition to...

'Justified' Recap: 'The Man Behind The Curtain' (3.07)

February 29th, 2012 2:07am EST
This week's Justified is a slow episode by comparison, but leave it to one of TV's top writing staffs to have something worthwhile in even the quieter hours.

Still dealing with Winona's departure, Raylan is getting blitzed at a different place, which happens to be the bar below his new apartment. Imagine his surprise when Quarles shows up at the bar beside him. "You're a bouncer in a dive bar," he says, and is not impressed. Raylan retorts with details of Quarles' propensity for roughing up male escorts that I didn't need. The next day, determined to take Quarles down, he needles...

Q&A: Meet 'Gone' Star Sam Upton

February 25th, 2012 10:00am EST
Sam Upton
If you catch the new Amanda Seyfried thriller Gone this weekend, you'll catch another interesting actor: Sam Upton. Who is he? An incredibly versatile player.

In Gone, Upton plays McKay, one of the police officers that Jill (Seyfried) turns to in order to catch the serial killer who once came after her and has now targeted her sister. The flick has a cast of names that TV buffs will adore, from Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter to Justified boss Nick Searcy, but don't overlook the affable Upton, who recently chatted with me about the film and the many other interests he has.

Let's start at t...

Q&A: How 'Justified' Star Timothy Olyphant Conquers TV

February 22nd, 2012 1:48pm EST
If there's one film actor who came into television and blew the doors off the medium, it was Justified star Timothy Olyphant.

In three seasons as quick-witted, quick-drawing Kentucky marshal Raylan Givens, the Live Free or Die Hard actor hasn't given a bad performance. In fact, he hasn't given less than a great one. Whether it's his leveling stare or just the way he points his words, Olyphant carries himself with a natural intensity that makes Raylan the infamous character we've been told he is. Simply put, in someone else's hands, this role just wouldn't work.

Off-screen, he's incredib...

'Justified' Recap: 'When The Guns Come Out' (3.06)

February 22nd, 2012 2:16am EST
By the title of this episode of Justified, you should be able to guess that there's more shooting than usual. Yet as is also usual, this show is a lot more than just its body count.

While Raylan is trying to figure out where Winona ran off to after she left him last week, lots of people are being shot (which is kind of typical for Kentucky). He's advised not to keep going after her, but we all know Raylan is too stubborn to listen. Instead, he goes looking for the money from the bank robbery she swiped last season, and when he finds it missing, he knows what's up. He asks Art for ...

'Justified' Recap: 'Thick As Mud' (3.05)

February 15th, 2012 2:03am EST
There's a lot going on in this week's Justified, and quite a few familiar faces. If "Thick As Mud" has a particular pop to it, it's because Elmore Leonard has a co-story credit for this ride.

While Limehouse is determined to keep Dickie (and anyone else) away from what remains of Mags' money, Boyd and Arlo are burying Devil's body after his bloody end, and Raylan's relationship with Winona is as rocky as it's always been...and oh crap, Dewey Crowe is missing some internal organs. That last part is courtesy of that creepy prison nurse Lance (Clayne Crawford), who just will not go awa...

My 10 Celebrity Valentines For 2012

February 13th, 2012 11:00am EST
Adam Levine
Valentine's Day is almost upon us. I don't have a valentine this year, but I'd like to give a few out to 10 celebs whose work I have particular affection for.

1. Adam Levine

My favorite The Voice coach is someone I'll always admire, and deservedly so: he has more hardware than a Home Depot. This past year alone, he and Maroon 5 scored their first American Music Award, a People's Choice Award and a Grammy nomination. I totally concur with my friend Jesse Blaze Snider, who referred to them as a band "with three near-perfect albums." (And a fourth on the way, reportedly due in June.)
