Walton Goggins was great all season, he was great in the Shield too

Really? So are they going to give him a different hat in season 2? Or are they just going to have him not wear a hat anymore?

I'd agree that the hat completes the look of the character, but meh, it's not a big deal. Raylan is awesome with or without it.

I really dig this show. I love the bizarre character arc of Boyd. I thought for sure that he was going to have some grand evil scheme up his sleeve, but redeeming him was even more interesting. Also, interested to see how the love triangle works out. Both of the women in Raylan's life are a bit screwy, but I think I'd rather see him end up with Winona since she seems to at least have a brain.

BTW, anyone else think that the actress who plays Winona looks like a slightly older Blake Lively?

^^^^ Now that you mention it, she does.

I have to say, until the finale I didn't believe Boyd had changed at all.

I still think it'd be dope to see if Walton Goggins has what it takes to be a good comedic actor. Look at John C. Reily he was always in serious roles in Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Perfect Storm, but then after he was in Talladega Nights they figured out that he had a real knack for comedic stuff. I feel Goggins could be the exact same way and be amazing. I dunno why

Good call on the Winona/Blake likeness. Raylan needs his hat.

Didnt really watch the Shanghai Noon or Knights movies.

But I agree the hat is what makes him badass! I'm telling ya! Timothy Olyphant is one of the few actors that can be in something that is set in present day America, and still make a cowboy hat badass. Raylan needs the hat damnit!!!!

Yeah, Raylan's hat better damn well stay. He's the reason I went and got one

Then the costume designers should make sure to get him the right type of hat, shouldn't they?

I think the "right type of hat" complaints are pretty silly. I know that the hat was different in the books, but is it really THAT big a deal?

I guarantee that the majority of people who watch this show have never read the Raylan stories. Hell, most of them probably don't even know that the character wasn't written specifically for TV. I understand Leonard had a very specific vision, but is a hat really THAT big a deal?

Raylan's hat in the show completes the look of the character. To change it at this point would feel strange.

Yeah, one of the first times I saw her, I thought she WAS Blake for a second or two.

Considering the developers/producers/writers of "Justified" decided to phase the hat out as the episodes went on, based on Leonard's disapproval, yes, I'd say it's THAT big a deal. Their actions answer that question without words.

How are the books?

If Raylan has a hat in the books, then it shouldn't be that hard to just get Raylan another hat. It's not that difficult to imagine scenarios that would need him to buy a new hat.

Are you sure about that though? Weren't there a few episodes throughout the series where he didn't wear it, but then he had it back the following week?

Now that I think about it, Raylan losing his hat to those goons at the bar, and then going back to get it seems to say they want him to keep the hat.

Elmore Leonard is pissed because the hat isn't perma-white.

Elmore Leonard sounds like he might be a b****. The hat is light colored... that's not enough?

LOL, I don't know. It's something about the shape of the hat not being exactly as described. Apparently it's not the standard cowboy hat in the books... something more akin to the hat that the cop is wearing in this famous photo:

I think it's a little ridiculous. Sometimes you have to go with what looks the best. I haven't read the books, but given the old western tone of the show, Raylan's hat works perfectly.
