Introduction

In many ways, Justified is a modern Western story. The show is based on an old short story by notorious author Elmore Leonard called Fire in the Hole. Justified takes place in the contemporary world, however, and follows US Marshal Raylan Givens. Instead of fighting off bandits and vilified versions of Native Americans, Raylan faces off with modern menaces to society like gangsters, drug dealers, and corrupt Lawmen. Having run for 6 seasons on the FX network, Justified was praised for the strong performances given by its actors, its well-written script, and a bevy of well-directed episodes. All in all, Justified has the spirit of a classic Western show while taking place in the contemporary world.

Justified Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you're a fan of other Western TV shows like Gunsmoke and Deadwood, then you'll probably be a huge fan of Justified and will want to consider it as a theme for giving your dog a name. Justified is classified as a "Neo-Western" - a show that hearkens back to older stories set in the ancient American Frontier days. But as much as Neo-Westerns pay homage to their predecessors, they also do plenty to set themselves apart from the Western shows and movies that predate them. In many older Westerns, morality is very black and white - with virtuous heroes triumphing over utterly irredeemable villains. Neo-Westerns add shades of grey into the mix, depicting both the heroes and villains as flawed beings who have both good and bad qualities. Justified was that kind of show, depicting characters like Raylan Givens and Boyd Crowder as fleshed out, 3-dimensional beings. 

Another reason you might like Justified could be that you're a massive fan of well written, well acted, and well directed crime dramas. We're talking about shows like The Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy, and Breaking Bad. Justified differs from those preceding shows by primarily focusing on the hero's perspective; for all of his faults, Raylan is still a just man who seeks to do the right thing in a society gone wrong. Justified finds common ground with those shows by humanizing otherwise nefarious characters and discussing heavy themes in a mature way. Start with the names Raylan and Boyd as you build your list of possible tags for your new addition.
