The winter season of television, so far, has been majorly disappointing. The few new series that have debuted have been mediocre, at best, and most of the returning shows have lacked, save for “Parks and Recreation” and a something of a small rebound for “Chuck.”
But next week, “Justified” returns, and with it, Timothy Olyphant’s ten-gallon hat. I understand that he’s going undercover this season, which means changing the color of his hat. I also understand that no man has more perfectly manicured stubble than Olyphant. How do you do that? Seriously? It’s goatee stubble. Do you know how much effort you have to put in to get perfect goatee stubble? If you’re Olyphant, it probably just spring miraculously from his chin and stops growing at the perfect stubble length after he points a gun at it and winks. That sly dog.
Here’s a little teaser spot for Season 2 of “Justified,” which blends, for many of you, two of your favorite things: Star Wars and Olyphant.

And speaking of Star Wars, I caught this over on Cinematical today, and it’s pretty spectacular:
And finally, to round out this Star Wars themed post (and if you haven’t seen the adorable VW Darth Vader commercial, do), you really must check out Kirby Ferguson’s second part of his video series, “Everything is a Remix.” This one explores everything that George Lucas borrowed/ripped off in creating Star Wars. Some of it might be old news to Star Wars experts, but I found it infinitely fascinating. You can watch it here.
