This show has been teased since Sons of Anarchy had it's finale, and it finally debuted last night.

Timothy Olyphant was really good, but I've never seen him in anything where he wasn't, so that's no real surprise.

Walt Coggins (Shane from The Shield) playing a racist bomber and drug dealer was a nice bit of a surprise.

Not sure how long this may last, it seems there isn't much for Olyphant's character to do in a small town.
But, it was good for a first episode.

Anybody else check this out?

I finally watched the first episode after DVRing it on Tuesday. I enjoyed the hell out of it. Olyphant was great as the bad-ass hero, Walt Coggins is always a great psycho, it was surprising, well-acted and seems to have a lot of potential. I'm not sure how much of a problem the small-town thing will be. While he's based out of his hometown, his jurisdiction is half a state, which would seem to give him plenty of opportunities to make short trips, and things can be drawn out if they built up longer term storylines that aren't solved in a single ep.

It was good as a sort of mini-movie, but I'm not sure how it'll work as a series. It feels like they want to build around Raylon vs Boyd, but they sort of ended that in the first episode. But the preview for the rest of the season looked pretty good, so maybe I'll be wrong.
