When you say top 5 do you mean of ALL time or currently on the air? If so that's pretty high praise.

It's my second favorite current show after Burn Notice.

I'm not a serial junkie like a lot of people seem to be these days. I'm perfectly fine with shows that have mostly contained episodes. The key to those types of shows is though, you have to have good characters. I think serials have a little more freedom to get away with poorer secondary characters since you spend a lot of the time focusing on the plot direction of the main 1-3 people on a show.

But with Justified I like all the characters and I hope they'll continue to have the other marshalls in more prominent roles. It's not an ensemble by any stretch but I love the format of Raylan + one other character for a contained story; and some additional backstory with either the current villan or Boyd.
