    Absolutely the best!

    Hands down the best acted, scripted, plotted western in decades. Words alone do not do it justice. Watch/get OWN all three seasons. You owe it to yourself!

    This program requires you pay attention

    One really shouldn't jump into these DVDs without first viewing Season One of "Deadwood". Unlike most television series, excluding those on HBO, plot lines are not neatly wrapped up in the course of an hour nor are they necessarily resolved over the course of the season. The language, while extremely profane, is also Shakespearian. The contrast between refinement and obscenity is a theme throughout the work. You will not find better-written or -acted characters anywhere on television or in 99.9% of movies. (See "Lion in Winter".) These stories are convoluted, violent and subtle, but there is also a great deal of humor. The monologues are incomparable, particularly as delivered by Ian McShane, Robin Wiegert and William Sanderson. If you are willing to pay close attention and might even consider watching a second time, this is the series for you. The three seasons of "Deadwood" are the only television programs I ever forsee buying for viewing in our home theater -- even considering "The Sopranos".

    Incomparable

    Deadwood is simply, and without a doubt, the best- written, best-acted, best-cast television series in decades. The plotlines are outstanding, the characters are complex and morally ambiguous (as are most of us in real life) and not the cartoon-character, black-and-white caricatures that you see on so-called dramas such as "24," "CSI," or virtually anything else on network televison. And then there is the dialogue. While the faint of heart will go into apopleptic fits at the number of f-bombs dropped on the show, the truly attentive will luxuriate in the textured Victorian (as one reviewer has already put it, Shakespearean) speech of the characters. One of my great joys in watching this series is viewing each episode several times to take in the beauty and depth of the dialogue. It will be hard for HBO, or anyone else, to top Deadwood for sheer entertainment value. My only regret is that producer David Milch has accepted a lucrative offer to produce another series, meaning that season 3 will almost certainly be Deadwood's last. A must buy for DVD.
