Does "Justified" (FX show) ever get better?

My dad suggested that I watch Justified because I liked Deadwood and The Shield. Well, I'm 4 episodes into it and I see no similarities at all with those shows other than that two of the same actors are in it. Justified seems like a lightweight series in comparison, like a throwback to the cheesy cop shows on network TV from the early 90s that I can vaguely remember watching as a kid. The main character is one-dimensional and the supporting cast are all C-list players. There's just...nothing compelling there, that I can discern.

However - I realize that the first season of a show is not necessarily reflective of the successive seasons. The first season is when the show creators are first figuring things out, and sometimes even really good shows have a hit-and-miss first season.

Is this going to get better - i.e. more intense, more serious, more like Deadwood and The Shield - or should I just give up?
