This fourth season of Justified hasn't felt like the three the preceded it. The search for Drew Thompson - in one way or another - has really seemed to drive the whole thing. Each and every episode, including "Get Drew," has had its own identity, but it still has felt more and more serialized than anything the series had done before.
I'm not saying that strategy is necessarily a bad thing in general. Everyone knows that I will all but rule out watching a show that does things strictly episodically, but during seasons two and three of Justified, they had a nearly perfect balance of small and big picture.
