'Justified' | 2010( Prashant Gupta / FX )
White hat: Timothy Olyphant plays Raylan Givens, a modern-day U.S. Marshal with anachronistic methods that often take him outside the law in his pursuit of justice. After shooting a mob man in Florida, he is reassigned to his backwater hometown in Harlan, Ky., where he faces ghosts from his past, friends-turned-criminal and his own anger issues. He may not be a true white hat, but it's probably a lighter shade of gray.
Black hat: Though Raylan faces a multiple black hats in what is essential the Wild West of Eastern Kentucky hill country, one recurring foe is Boyd Crowder, played by Walton Goggins. Boyd is a childhood friend, but Raylan shoots him in the chest in the first episode. Boyd lives to wrangle a posse of vigilantes, rejoin civilian life, and then rebuild his criminal empire. He continues to straddle the line between good guy and bad guy, never falling squarely on one side or the other.
