    Interesting premise: fact based stories, realistic production design and a good cast all set in a real town from the old west but all undermined by some silly competition to see which of the low-lifes can use the F-word the most. One well played scene after another gets the dramatic momentum ripped out from under it by this over-the-top dialogue. Perhaps they thought that if it worked for the Sopranos it would work here.

  4. With the first season of Deadwood, a big initial turn off for me was the level of profanity. The character of Calamity Jane in particular made me want to just turn off the television. My wife and I stuck it out, and when I saw the writer justify this by saying that it brought authenticity to the dialog, I found myself able to accept this. If you wanted to survive in Deadwood, you had to come across as one mean hombre.

    The problem though is that the writer is a little disingenuous in claiming that he is attempting to be true to the way characters might have conversed in those times. I say this because clearly in the 3rd season, his characters all have such an affinity for William Shakespeare that they’ve taken to talking like the bard! Every snippet of dialog is completely pretentious in this regard, and everything the characters have to say is incomprehensible.

    Not understanding the characters would have been bad enough, but the over embellished language was used to explain motivations and actions. Because I could not decode what the characters were going on about, I was baffled by the way they behaved. Consider the following:

    1)Hearst is a character that no one in town likes. It is safe to say that without a doubt they hate him. In seasons past this would have been enough for this character to have spent some quality time with Wu’s pigs. Somehow though, he never comes to any harm!

    2)There is a troupe of actors that comes to the town. What is their purpose? Who knows? Their relevance to anything is inscrutable.

    3)What is the deal with Tolliver and his henchmen? With Hearst and his henchmen? With Tolliver and Hearst?

    4)What is the deal with Steve and his deal to buy the stables? Why do any of the characters think it is a good/reasonable idea? How exactly has Steve managed to avoid Wu’s pigs through SO many episodes?

    5)What is the significance of the election? Why should the audience even care?

    6)Why can’t Trixie be happy with Saul already. Yeah, we get that she’s been a prostitute since as far back as anyone can remember, but does that mean she has to be abrasive and obnoxious to everyone for the rest of her life?

    7)I can’t help but like Charlie Udder. His character development though seems incredibly neglected, and none of the other characters (even Joanie in this season) seem to even notice his existence. Why?

    8)Al’s man and Hearst’s man get in a fight to the death. Yeah, this was interesting in a visceral WWF kind of way, but what was the point of it really? Why did Al not just shoot the man dead himself for having cut off his finger? Why did Al not shoot his master while he was at it for good measure?

    9)Why was sneaking around so ‘Hearst doesn’t see’ so important at various points in the season? Why was Hearst simply not dealt with?

    All these curious items and many, many more could perhaps be easily deduced had the dialog not been so contrived and pretentious. As it was, I ultimately became disgusted enough with the writing as to not even care about the outcome.

    This series needed to die, if only to save people from the narcissistic impulses of its writer.

  5. This is a good Western story, But has a lot of Swearing and some Nudity. I would not buy these DVD’s if you get offended by hearing the F word every Five minutes.
