Sixth season indeed...whew! Like I said, totally works for me. Yost and TO have been saying six for a while.

The 'more Tim and Rachel' crowd will not be happy, but those of us who want more Art sure are.
But, but, but, why can't we have more of all three of them? Wah.
It sure is disappointing. He promised after last season that there will be more Marshals this season, but I suppose it's going to be pushed back to next season once again, which...I don't know. If the 6th season is indeed the last season of the series, the writers will be busy trying to wrap up Raylan and Boyd's stories (together or separate), and I don't think it'd be an appropriate season to give more screen time to the supporting players. That's just too bad.
That said, more Art is always welcome in anyone's book, I'm sure.

If the writers can find time for every nitwit criminal in Harlan, they can make time for Tim and Rachel. They simply choose not to.

The show has always been violent though I've found them more gratuitous with it since about Season 3.

Not sure this qualifies as "in the media" per se, but as a newcomer to Justified, I have been searching out interviews online, and this 26-minute discussion between Timothy Olyphant and Walt Goggins is a thing of beauty. Sorry if it's a repost, but if you haven't seen it, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Don't care if Boyd makes it with the Russian chick or not, but they've GOT to get Ava out of jail. Just to hot to be in there!!!

Thank you Inquisitionist, for the link to that wonderful interview between Goggins and Olyphant!
It totally is a thing of beauty, and a really fascinating, cool interview. I loved that they talk so much about their processes. They're both such smart, articulate guys, but what always surprises me is that somehow I would have expected Olyphant to be the driven, meticulous type and for Goggins to be the more laid-back of the two. So it's really fun to see the relaxed, funny Olyphant who seems to wing it a bit more (at least in how he describes his process) while Goggins is the one who is perhaps more technical and and detail-oriented as an actor.
When you add in the fact that TO is the WWED (What Would Elmore Do) watchdog in the mix, constantly making sure things always sound like they come from his universe, it's all pretty much perfect. I love both actors so the contrast in their styles is really fun to see.
Also this interview made me realize that I officially crush on Walton Goggins just as much at this point as TO. Both are wonderful actors and have a palpable appreciation for each other's work.
I also found this series of interviews (in four parts, one hour total) for Writer's Guild West pretty interesting. It's a panel Q&A with Graham Yost, writer Wendy Calhoun, and Erica Tazel (Rachel), and is a discussion on "Writing in Color."
Everyone's pretty interesting here, although I take points off for Yost's rather transparent slam of Joss Whedon (sorry but, as much as I like Yost, the "Speed" lawsuit outcome will always bug me).

New interview with Jacob Pitts from Nerd Repository. Mostly non-spoilery but it pretty much confirms what we've heard -- there's a criminal lack of Tim this season. And apparently they loved the Scrabble interlude as much as we did.

Jeepers, was the opening quote in that Daily Beast interview mangled or what? Correction: "I've been accused of being a lot of things, but inarticulate ain't one of them."

Someone used to post the links to these very insightful post mortems by Graham Yost in the individual episode threads. Figured I'd do a catch-up as long as we have a two-week break.

From the post-mortem:
[after] we decided to kill Jean-Baptiste in episode 5, I just looked at it and said, “Well, we’re gonna be short an episode, so we better come up with one now. Instead of trying to stretch out the last three episodes [of the 13-episode season], let’s put something in now. What can we do?” I thought it would be cool if there was something about Kendal and Wendy, and that it would be a cool idea for an episode if Raylan had to come in and help Wendy. That’s basically all I had. I came in with that on a Monday, and we broke the episode on the Monday, we wrote the outline on the Tuesday, and Provenzano started writing it on the Wednesday
And I think most of us agree that the haste and half-assed-ness resulted in a poor quality episode.
