It took me awhile to get around to watching Deadwood. I enjoy Westerns, but wasn't quite sure if I could commit to this show. Once I sat down to watch it however, I was sucked in to this dirty, lawless, Western settlement. I would recommend this highly to those who enjoy Westerns, but beware: the language and violence is abundant.

HBO came out with three series that blew the rest of television away. These three were Deadwood, The Sopranos, and The Wire. A tv critic once wrote that Deadwood is a perfect story about the birth of a society, The Sopranos speaks on the life of a culture, and The Wire chronicles the death of a society. After finishing The Sopranos and The Wire I've been avoiding watching Deadwood for a long time. It was nice to know that there was always another incredible show out there waiting to be watched. It's like how Desmond on Lost saved a Charles Dickens book to read until he was near death. That way he could go through the rest of his life always knowing he had that to look forward to. Lost turned out to be a completely awful show with the worst ending of anything I've ever seen, but that one character detail about Desmond is fun. My point is, tv is getting worse, and worse, and worse so the time to cash in on Deadwood has arrived. And it was everything I thought it would be.
