Timothy Olyphant stars as Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens in the FX Networks crime drama Justified.
A true-blue hero and something of a throwback, he's given to wearing a Stetson and cowboy boots, carrying his sidearm in a hip holster -- a weapon he only draws when he has to, and when he does, he shoots to kill, because, as he sees it, that’s the purpose of a gun.
The character of Raylan Givens was created by crime novelist Elmore Leonard, who featured the Marshal in several short stories.
The Justified: Season One DVD set of 3 discs contains the 13 episodes that aired from March through June 2010. Also available: Justified: Season One (Blu-ray disc).

Trevor Eve stars as Detective Superintendent Peter Boyd who, with his team of forensic experts, investigates serious crimes that remain unsolved in Waking the Dead.
Following the death of DS Mel Silver, the Cold Case Unit is still in shock. The already intense Boyd is clearly rocked by the loss of a valuable team member, and now has a case that questions his own abilities. So it is left to Dr. Grace Foley (Sue Johnston) and DI Spencer Jordan (Wil Johnson) to try to keep the team stable and integrate the new members of the unit.
The Waking the Dead: Season Five DVD set of 3 discs contains the 6 2-part episodes that originally aired on BBC from September through October 2005.
