Monday is the day to recover from the weekend

March 18, 2013

This weekend I had the very fine time of visiting with friends, on two different occasions, whom I haven’t seen in years.  They moved away, and e-mail and social media only go so far.  Sitting down for drinks or gathering around a table full of friends and food and fine conversation really don’t have an online substitute.

Started the third season of Justified.  Still loving it. The dialog still pops like firecrackers, and I’ve just now noticed how many scenes are blocked like it’s a stage play — i.e. there’s a powerful awareness of where the audience is sitting, where the audience’s gaze is, and the action is engaged with that gaze.  Love it.

And Neal McDonough is the big baddy this season!  Yay!

    Elmore Leonard’s books being known for dialogue and dialogue being the thing that most people seem to single out about Justified just indicates to me that the writers are in sync with the source material.

    That doesn’t seem to happen much.

    Did take me a couple of episodes to detatch Neal McDonough from Buck Compton though.
