What's the consensus?
Boxset of series 1 is only £14, worth a punt?
Would you be disgusted if somebody were to PM you Rapidshare links?
They say cocksucker in that show a lot.....A lot a lot.
It grows in you
It's good adn worth that for sure, not in the class of The Sopranos or The Wire, but still very good
Quality stuff cocksucker.
they say cnut a lot too
Swearengen: "Get a fecking haircut. Looks like your mother fecked a monkey."
Tolliver: "Sayin' questions in that tone and pointin' your finger at me will get you told to feck yourself."
Al Swearengen: They butt into other people's business; and make the business of other's their own - these bought-out, no good cocksuckers.
Tom Mason: Hickok, you talkin' bout?
Al Swearengen: Oh, feckin' big shot he is.
Persimon Phil: Big feckin' shot, when he's standing in front of you.
Al Swearengen: One in his ear from behind, I'd like to see how fecking tough he was.
Al Swearengen: You want a blow job while I talk to you?
Al Swearengen: I wasn't offering personally.
Calamity Jane: Maybe I will have a feckin' drink, for sociability's sake and 'cause I'm a feckin' drunk.
Joanie Stubbs: What's your preference?
Calamity Jane: That it ain't been previously swallowed.
Al Swearengen: Underarms clean? cnuts braided?
For £14 defiantly worth it.
It doesn't move along at the speed of some recent shows (Prison Break, 24, etc.) As far as I can tell, it's fairly accurate in a historical sense, and there are some great performances.
The script is top notch.
And there is not THAT much sweaing in it...
Wow Ian McShane cusses a lot in that show.
Just watched the episode where Mcshane had kidney stones, wow that was brutal!
Excellent show, and McShane is totally awesome in it.
You do need to enjoy the period it was set in though. For many, the wild west setting may not appeal (especially the gritty, dirty deadwood version ~ which is probably closer to reality then any of the other that hollywood has put out).
Only just falls short of the top top tier, like the Wire... Three seasons and it doesn't manage to get boring by then, and I'd say that Swearengen is definitely one of the coolest "bad guys" to grace TeeVee.
Great show, cocksucker.
It's quite difficult to get into because great swathes of the language are essentially incomprehensible. I found it a little like watching Shakespeare, in that eventually you sort of understand what they're talking about but I can understand why people are turned off by it.
The fact that the two movies/fourth series never happened really hurt it on the overall, had it been given the proper finish it needed, it's pretty much on par with Sopranos and The Wire, or well right behind, but not getting a real ending is so damn frustrating.
Plus it's coming out on blu-ray soon, so yeah that should fecking great, I didn't have SkyHD when it was initially on, so it'll be great watching in 1080p when I rewatch it when it comes out.
That's a turn-on as far as I'm concerned... It's hard to catch but you're richly rewarded if you do.
I don't know, I didn't mind too much... Life goes on and is complicated and harsh shit... I prefer not to think of it as a story with loose ends, but rather as a brief look into Deadwood.
Btw, it's rewarding to read up on the true history of Deadwood on wiki... I was pleasantly surprised by how much they'd drawn from real life.
Only problem is. They never finished it.
Has anybody seen McCabe & Mrs Miller?
It definitely appears at least to be a stylistic influence on Deadwood.
Deadwood was fantastic, thankfully Milch will be back soon with a new HBO series on horse racing starring Dustin Hoffman.
Alrighty then, I'm starting watching it today.
First season was brilliant, haven't got around to watching the rest yet.
You probably won't believe me, but I started watching the series yesterday.
Just watched the first episode, so far. Very promising. I might watch a bunch of them in a row over the weekend.
Just watched the final episode, can't believe they cancelled this show HBO are usually on the money.
I watched the first episode a couple of years ago, and I stopped watching it then. I'm rewatching the first episode again right now.
Lance thundercnut is a cool guy.
Lovejoy is just immense in it, and so many other great charachters and dialogue.
Looks amazing so far!
Immense show. Probably my favourite ever.
E.B & Richardson are a great double act. Calamity Jane is also funny as fcuk.
Nothing more needs to be said about McShane as Swearengen.
Get some stink on your Johnson....
I watched a few last night, right up until:
Wild Bill got shot in the back of the dome.
That disappointed me.
Elephant is a horrible actor. The only thing that's wrong in the show so far.
Olyphant was perfect in the role.
The guy playing Cy looks out of place as well.
Watched the first six episodes now. It really is fantastic.
I've just finished episode 6 as well.
