My drooling is justified.

I fell in lust love with “Justified” after the first episode.

It started with Timothy Olyphant as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Since then I have rented all seven seasons of “The Shield” — one of the top 10 shows of all time — and I’m now powerfully obsessed with Walton Goggins, who plays Raylan’s childhood buddy Boyd Crowder.

So, yeah. I’m psyched for “Justified” Season 2 to begin on Wednesday, February 9 at 10 p.m. on FX.

AOL’s TV Squad has joined me in lamenting the lack of awards love given to the series: “Despite being overlooked in the TV categories at the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards, the show’s first season was critically lauded. Hopefully the award-giving powers that be take notice this time around.”

True dat!
