Deadwood
« on: November 06, 2022, 09:50:17 PM »
Iím 10 episodes in and this has to be the most underrated show Iíve ever watched.

Al Swearengen is the nastiest piece of work next to Marlo from The Wire and Tony Soprano in the 6th season. Any fans here? I gotta talk about this show with someone, none of my friends are into it.

It's Shakespearian in it's story development and characters. So good.

The way Swearengen talks about killing one of the 2 robbers that snagged Wuís opiate delivery and his casual, disgusting racism is unbelievable. Ian McShane is such an amazing actor, I wanna fucking strangle him with my bare hands.

Most upsetting thing was having Wild Bill get killed so early on, I wanted that dude on screen at all times. Whoever the woman is who plays Calamity Jane is awesome too. I feel bad for the reverend with brain cancer and the guy who plays the hotel owner who becomes the mayor is the epitome of fucking creep with rapey vibes. He was good in Blade Runner too. Guy somehow has looked the same age for like 30 years.

Underrated?  No.  Everyone rated it highly when it was out .  I think itís probably safely considered the 3rd best HBO show after Sopranos and the Wire.   

Donít forget to watch the movie that came out a few years ago.  Itís a satisfying coda.

Cocksucker.

I love the Chinese gentleman who knows one English word, and its cocksucker.

Great series, wish it went on a little longer. I haven't watched it in about 15 years, this reminds me I should probably do that again soon. I've forgotten so much of it.

They actually made the movie? I remember hearing about it but never thought they came out with it. I'm assuming its just like a 4th season?

Also, Al is a sonofabitch, and Ian McShane is an absolutely amazing actor.

I heard the movie ends with one of the best one liners, but Iím a faaar ways off from watching that. I havenít finished the first season yet and if gut feelingís correct, have barely scratched the surface of this show. Thereís so much going on that if I donít watch at least one episode a day Iím bound to come back to it and be completely lost.

Iím totally invested though. Havenít binged a show like this since The Wire and I donít watch shows too often.

Yeah more or less.  Theyíre mostly wrapping up the story with the antagonist of S3 (trying to keep it vague enough - though this isnít really a spoiler type thing)

Deadwood rules.

Powers Boothe (RIP) as Cy Tolliver utters one of the filthiest lines ever spoken:

"While that lady was travelling with you, her husband the sheriff was pickling his prick in the cunt brine of another"

There's an LPN that words in the emergency department at my hospital who's last name is Swearingen. Any time I see her name pop up my mind immediately says: cocksucker mother fucker.
