'Justified' Premiere: Patton Oswalt Joins The Cast As The Bumbling Constable Bob (VIDEO)

The new season of "Justified" brought with it just a hint of Mayberry. Patton Oswalt joined the cast as Constable Bob Sweeney, a bumbling sidekick for Raylan Givens. While he doesn't carry a single bullet for his gun the way Barney Fife did, Bob has a knife that he believes he can use to take people out -- so long as they come at him the right way.

When Raylan took on a bounty job on the side, he called in Bob to help him out. Things went south, as the always do, when he got pulled into a different case involving two teenage copper thieves and a bag pulled from the wall of his father's house. Everything culminated in a tense standoff that would have been over a lot sooner had Bob not asked one of the men to pull on him.

When the man brought Bob into the barn where Raylan was about to subdue all three people there, he explained what happened. "He asked me to pull on him. I punched him in the nose."

"He did it wrong!" Bob wailed.

In the end, Raylan regained control of the situation, and Bob even helped by stabbing one of the teenagers in the foot. Here's hoping Raylan has need of his assistance plenty during this season. HuffPost's Maureen Ryan loves the addition of Oswalt to the cast, while EW's Ken Tucker wishes he'd shown up a long time ago.

Season 4 of "Justified" rolls on, Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
