Justified: Right on Target

Justified

On Justified, when two hillbilly thugs walk into a room with an ominous-looking bag, you know they're not toting the makings of a picnic. Anything might be inside: explosives, guns, a bear trap. For Timothy Olyphant, who stars on FX's crime drama as the low-key but deadly deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens and is now a producer, the secret to the show's rich yet unhurried storytelling is how it triggers the imagination.

Roush Review: Not-So-Great Minds Bleed Alike

Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior

"Normal people don't cut out a person's eyes," says a homicide detective turning to the FBI's "Red Cell" Behavioral Analysis Unit for help at a grisly crime scene.

Tuesday's Run and Gun Shows

Top Shot

With high-powered firearms and high-flying ninja stunts, these sure aren't your daddy's sports shows. But we're betting he'd enjoy Top Shot (Tuesday, 10/9c, History Channel) and Jump City: Seattle (Tuesday, 8/7c, G4), too. Last week, History premiered Season 2 of its direct hit Top Shot, which challenges two teams of marksmen and women to pepper targets using a variety of weapons, from bows and arrows to fully automatics. "The cool factor goes through the roof whenever you bring out a Prohibition Era Tommy gun," says host (and Survivor alum) Colby Donaldson. Tonight's contest: "The teams have to maintain composure and focus while paintballs are whizzing over their heads," he says.

Over at Jump City: Seattle, however, it's the contestants themselves who are ... read more

Mad Love

Barney Stinson should sue for identity theft. Because there's a sitcom running around pretending to be How I Met Your Mother and failing dramatically. Let's say it cheap-suited up.

Unless you are among the headless, you too saw the similarities during last night's premiere of Mad Love. Not only does it ... read more
