    He was so good in Sarah Connor Chronicles and Justified.

    Fun fact: Powers Boothe’s final resting place in Texas is called Deadwood Cemetery.

    Im 3 episodes into the first season, really enjoying it. Never heard such powerful use of swears in my life.

    Wait until you meet Steve.

    Like the rest of us I’m also jealous of you right now. I wish I could Eternal Sunshine my brain so I could watch this show for the first time again.

    Wait until you meet Wu. He'll tell you everything you need to know about San Francisco cocksuckers.

    By far the most memorable part of that whole series for me was the kidney stone. Absolutely amazing acting all around.

    That is THE most excrutiating five minutes in television history.

    It really says something when you create a scene so horribly unpleasant, yet you can’t take your eyes off it. I’ve watched that scene more than once, and nobody should. There is no way they were fucking acting.

    It was crazy they sidelined the main character and star of the show for a good portion of the season. It was great.

    I think we all know who we REALLY want to see appear the most in the movie.

    Just finished season 1, really enjoyed it. Some thoughts:

    -I already knew how Hickok died in real life, but I didn’t think they were taking him out that early.

    -The Reverend’s arc was really heartbreaking. The part where he just wants to walk with Bullock and Sol so as to not be lonely for a little while was really sad.

    -The excessive cursing seems a little overdone sometimes. I get why they did it, but it’s a little jarring.

    -I don’t really understand the Calamity Jane character. I get that she’s meant to be the inverse of Alma Garrett, but maybe her point is revealed later.

    -I want to visit the real Deadwood. But I imagine it would be disappointing like the time I visited the town where First Blood was filmed (Hope, BC, I think).

    Her and Joanie are made for each other. Both useless.

    I thought Jane's work in the last (partial) season was tragically interesting. Tragically isn't the right word. But, watching her pain was fascinating. Maybe I was just interested because of the nekkid stuff.

    Oh, and the actress who plays Jane gets a nice coffee table shard to the head murdery death in Jessica Jones.

    I just watched the whole series over the last couple of days on Amazon Prime and....holy SHIT this show is awesome. There are now five shows I’ve liked in the 21st century.

    WHY exactly did they cancel this again?? My only complaint is that there is so much unresolved matters at the end, which I guess if they didn’t know it was to be canceled makes sense....

    Im just about wrapped up with season 2, so Im watching it for the first time also. I think the show was a bit before its time. When it came out, TV programming hadnt really hit the golden age yet like its in now. Sopranos and The Wire were on, but that was about it. Reality TV was a much bigger phenomenon at that point. I think it would have been much more popular if it came out a few years later.

    I also think the dialogue was a tad advanced for your average shithead. Yes the profanity is universally understood, but the style? was unique.

    Being a Yale English and history professor, this show simply cannot exist without the mind of Milch. And now that he has Alzheimer’s it never will again. I wish he stick to historical drama rather than the hot garbage that was John From Cincinnati.

    On that, I read that people really didnt use "fuck" as much as they did in the show in real life during that time period. The show-runner made the decision to use it because if they used the actual vernacular and slang from that time period, everyone would sound like Yosemite Sam.

    They based the profanity on how influential the language and slang of “pole whackers” was in communities back then. They were cattle drivers who constantly swore and cursed while wrangling and beating cattle.

    Milch also claims that in the show characters use heavy profanity as a form of instant self-therapy to avoid resorting to violence in a violent and lawless time.

    So there’s basically no way I can watch the movie tomorrow without some form of hbo, right? Anyone know if it’s coming out on prime anytime soon?
