Review of Deadwood

The outlaw camp of Deadwood marches slowly towards civilization, facing its first elections. But the power struggles continue over everything in Deadwood - influence, money, and whores - as the founding camp members form strategic alliances to face down the threat of a powerful newcomer, seeking to remake Deadwood in his image. Created and executive produced by David Milch ("NYPD Blue"), Deadwood is one of most acclaimed dramas on television. The series was nominated for 22 Emmys and won 7 and earned a Golden Globe Award in its first two seasons for Ian McShane.

I was pretty miffed when they ended this. Heck, i dislike many of the actors in this thing just cause i think thier middling and type cast but this show was the tits!! It was so good as far as characters, dialog, the mix of risk and reward. I think one walked away from each of the episodes feeling like the story moved forward and was engaging. Now, i will tell you this if swearing makes your cringe you are going to want to avoid this show. To that end this show tells a story, does a good job at it, injects comedy and portrays a different look at a very famous point in american history. It also ends prematurely and will make you mad but i think its worth it.

OK, Tim, I sought out your Deadwood review specifically. I've begun watching this twice already but events stopped my getting past ~Ep. 2. Thought about giving it up if I got pulled away so easily (plus, it was during TV off-season). I'll try again since you think it's good! Thanks for all your good reviews I'm sure I'll search them again when Fall TV breaks.

I hate that, when it seems everyone can find the fun in a show and i just dislike it. I'm that way with Aquarius.. i like David and i think the show is okay.. i just dont think its good. My adage for shows is to watch at least 4 episodes. $ gives the writers, actors an directors all the time to find their niche and present the show they intend to,

Hi Tim! That is good advice! I hate when networks pull the plug so early! I'm still mad at NBC for cancelling Best Friends, though I'm glad the 2 actresses have a new gig on another network. Anyway, because of those execs with their happy axes, I've become more selective & quickly abandon anything bland, generic, & uninteresting to me. I'm getting better at predicting the flops... I, too, like David so much I watched the entire S1 of Aquarius; he deserves better. Surprised it was un-canceled (has it been cut a 2nd time?). OH, and the new X-Files? Poor David and Gillian! I suppose the style and storylines are too silly and tame for today after we've seen such "sophisticated" syfy, a genre that's come a long way & where I get much of my drama & horror fixes. Tim, I'm happy to have found a TV buddy! No one in my life has time for much TV & I rarely can find anyone to discuss programs with me. I see there's a SideReel blog but do we have anything that functions as a chatroom? OK, I've rambled but have shows to watch! :) I'll come back and read more posts after watching...Actually - my ice cream has reached the perfect melt::frozen ratio; mustn't delay further! :) Back soon..
