"Justified: The Complete First Season" came out on DVD while I was at press tour (or possibly while I was recovering from press tour; that whole period is a haze), so I didn't get a chance to review it at the time. But in a way, the timing proved useful, since I was able to get an answer at press tour to one big question that wasn't discussed in any of the disc's ample bonus features. (At least not the ones I watched/listened to.)
A whole lotta bullets and a whole lotta special features
A neighborhood boy is lost, then found at the Gallagher house
Still too much story for the Henricksons and their audience to deal with
Many final season episodes will be available on DVD before NBC airs them
I watched the series finale of "Friday Night Lights" yesterday, and while I will not spoil a thing about it for any of you - and this article and its comments won't feature any spoilers about any of the DirecTV episodes - I will say that my heart was full throughout, but my eyes were not always clear, if you know what I mean. And for the first time, I actually feel envious for the people who don't have DirecTV and/or aren't TV critics with screener access. Because you guys still have 13 new episodes of this great drama to watch, and I now have none. (I know, I know... the world's smallest violin is playing for me.)
The final two episodes of the series are going to air on The 101 Network on Feb. 2 & 9 at 9 p.m. That's simple for those of you with DirecTV. For everyone else, things get a bit stranger.
Liz and Tracy feud, and Jack's scheme hilariously backfires on him, in a strong episode
Michael Scott and David Brent meet, and Andy runs the show again
Pierce runs amok, Annie needs cash and Jeff learns the perils of blind sexting
The flu ravages Pawnee in an instant classic episode
An iffy episode stands alone on a night filled with ABC repeats
'Bob's Burgers' star H. Jon Benjamin continues his animation domination
H. Jon Benjamin has one of the more recognizable voices in animation today. While other voiceover actors like the cast of "The Simpsons," or even Seth MacFarlane, try to offer up lots of different voices, Benjamin has just the one very deep, very grave voice, which has been largely unchanged from "Dr. Katz Professional Therapist" all the way through to his two current gigs in the title roles of FOX's "Bob's Burgers" and FX's "Archer," which returns for its second season tomorrow night at 10. Benjamin's voice is so distinctive that I'm actually distracted now when I see him do live-action work, like on Comedy Central's now-defunct "Important Things with Demetri Martin."
