Justified is another show I like. Along with many critics, I thought its premiere episode matched Elmore Leonard's tone perfectly. I've worried from the beginning, though, that the trademark twists of a Leonard book—he writes mostly standalones—might become predictable in a series. Two episodes in a row the supposed low-level flunky has double-crossed the big shot mastermind. Last night I saw the twist coming from a long way off.
