Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Former NYPD Blue producer David Milch goes west with this rawboned but compelling drama of the American frontier, where the lawless and the law-abiding are in constant conflict -- and where the lines between right and wrong are rarely clear. The first episode, "Deadwood," begins in 1876, just two weeks after Custer's annihilation at the Little Bighorn. The richest gold strike in American history has drawn a slew of restless opportunists to Deadwood, a rowdy settlement where the only law is dispensed at the end of a six-gun. Ex-lawman Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) has arrived to start up a hardware store, but before long he'll be embroiled in various misadventures with the town's most colorful characters: Wild Bill Hickok (Keith Carradine), Calamity Jane (Robin Weigert), and the Machiavellian owner of the Gem Saloon, Al Swearengen (Ian McShane, whose fine work in this juicy role won him a Golden Globe). The 12 episodes of Season 1 are uniformly excellent, although it should be pointed out that Deadwood has raised eyebrows and inspired controversy, not only for its often brutally frank depictions of violence and sexuality but also for its promiscuous use of obscenities. In other words, this isn't your daddy's Wild West. Choices for first-season standouts include "The Trial of Jack McCall," in which the Gem becomes a courtroom after Wild Bill is shot from behind by a shifty little coward. "Bullock Returns to the Camp" is a pivotal episode in the development of the show's leading character: After trailing another murderer, Seth returns to the camp a marked man -- and one with a mission. The series finale, "Sold Under Sin," finds him wearing a sheriff's badge, and the town will never be the same. Unless Al Swearengen has his way, that is. Deadwood is not exactly what you'd call family entertainment, but it's an extremely well crafted series and highly addictive.
