Deadwood: The Complete Series
The Black Hills of South Dakota. Witness the birth of an American frontier town - and the ruthless power struggle between its just and unjust pioneers
Loved this series. I hated when it came to an end. This is not for everyone, definitely not for children. This series is raw, with profane language, nudity, sex, and violence. The acting is superb. This is fiction mixed with historical fact. Great endeavor by everyone involved in the making of this series.
The acting is outstanding and based on historical fact. A show that you can certainly watch more than once. I still think of the fight scene was one of the best I have ever seen and worth watching the entire series just to see that.
I had not liked Deadwood when I first tried it, just the first episode. One of those wasn't in the right place at the time things. But, I decided to revisit it after a while and found a wonderful and unique series with some of the best acting and writing on TV. The "Cowboy Shakespeare" inclinations of the writers, that was in plain view from the first season, really took off and became a main element of the show in the second season.
Entire internal monologues and thoughts would blossom forth in lengthy obscenity laced rants and tirades, all delivered with brilliant pseudo Shakespearian eloquence and poetry. Amazing stuff for those viewers willing to get in the zone for it. The Special Edition set features a wide range of commentaries, special features, documentaries and photos. If you love the show this is a must have set for understanding the background, creation and production of this unique series. There's talk of a Deadwood movie to re-unite the cast and put a proper end to the story. Hope they bring it off.
Superbly entertaining series with some basis of fact. Brilliant characters both good and bad, Seth Bulluck, Al Swearangen, Wild Bill, calamity Jane, brief appearance by Wyatt Earp, lots of foul language yet still articulate.
I highly RECOMMENDED.
