Product Description

Product Description

Deadwood: The Complete Series (BD)

Amazon.ca

Deadwood represents one of those periodic, wholesale reinventions of the Western that is as different from, say, Lonesome Dove as that miniseries is from Howard Hawks's Rio Bravo or the latter is from Anthony Mann's The Naked Spur. In many ways, HBO's Deadwood embraces the Western's unambiguous morality during the cinema's silent era through the 1930s while also blazing trails through a post-NYPD Blue, post-The West Wing television age exalting dense and customized dialogue. On top of that, Deadwood has managed an original look and texture for a familiar genre: gritty, chaotic, and surging with both dark and hopeful energy. Yet the show's creator, erstwhile NYPD Blue head writer David Milch, never ridicules or condescends to his more grasping, futile characters or overstates the virtues of his heroic ones.

Set in an ungoverned stretch of South Dakota soon after the 1876 Custer massacre, Deadwood concerns a lawless, evolving town attracting fortune-seekers, drifters, tyrants, and burned-out adventurers searching for a card game and a place to die. Others, particularly women trapped in prostitution, sundry do-gooders, and hangers-on have nowhere else to go. Into this pool of aspiration and nightmare arrive former Montana lawman Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) and his friend Sol Starr (John Hawkes), determined to open a lucrative hardware business. Over time, their paths cross with a weary but still formidable Wild Bill Hickok (Keith Carradine) and his doting companion, the coarse angel Calamity Jane (Robin Weigert); an aristocratic, drug-addicted widow (Molly Parker) trying to salvage a gold mining claim; and a despondent hooker (Paula Malcomson) who cares, briefly, for an orphaned girl. Casting a giant shadow over all is a blood-soaked king, Gem Saloon owner Al Swearengen (Ian McShane), possibly the best, most complex, and mesmerizing villain seen on TV in years. Each of these characters, and many others, will forge alliances and feuds, cope with disasters (such as smallpox), and move--almost invisibly but inexorably--toward some semblance of order and common cause. Making it all worthwhile is Milch's masterful dialogue--often profane, sometimes courtly and civilized, never perfunctory--and the brilliant acting of the aforementioned performers plus others. --Tom Keogh

This series is not for someone who's favourite TV series is Little House on the Praire! It is gritty and hard hitting and will teach you ( if you don't already know them all ) every swear word that has ever been uttered in the history of the world. Its characters are rich,well developed and layered. The story lines are clever and real. If you like your dramas to smack you in the face you are in for a real treat - HBO at its best.

Warning: this product is definitely for watching after the kids go to bed. But you may have to start up your own swearing penny jar.

At the time Deadwood came out, it got a ton of publicity for the most uses of the F word imaginable. I would say they moderned it up a bit, because the swearing that made ladies swoon back in the 1800s probably wouldn't make us bat an eye today. What publicity the show didn't get was about how great the show was anyway, despite swearing a blue streak.

I tend to hate westerns, but Deadwood is visceral, colorful, and completely engaging. You can feel the mud and grit and taste the antifreeze they're drinking. I'll be the first to admit that for a long time after watching, it did have quite an adverse effect on my language, however.

The series ends rather abruptly, in part due to unexpected cancellation and in part because it would have been hard to put a final ending on history that did go on. If you watch the special features of the complete box set, you do get to see the creator of the show being a grump (mildly put) about the whole cancellation.

But all in all, it's a great show. It makes a great gift, and it's been making the rounds among my family members who all have given Deadwood two thumbs up. Buy it, ya ****suckers.

Pure Dead Brilliant. Heartily recommended. Only complaint (not to the creators, but to the studios) is it's 3 year reign being far too short. I could taste the dust and smell the human waste in the streets. Every episode made me want to bathe. They were not your average characters, but real people who let us into their town for a spell. E.B., Jane and Doc are personal standouts for me.

Cant say enough good things about this show. Like the Wire and Carnivale, this show was cancelled far too early and deserved a 7 season run. So many popular shows on regular cable run a season two too long, HBO has the opposite problem. They tend to cancel shows too early and we are left wondering about cliff hangers and characters we have grown to love and were they could of gone in the stoyline.
Impressive acting, superb production values and very strong writing make this one of my favorite shows on TV.

This series was recommended after I got hooked up on Spartacus.

I was shocked, amazed and couldn't get enough of it!
I also figured it was a bargain price when I bought it for only 70$.
39 episodes of about 60 minutes each, which is good seeing how the standard is usually roughly around 40 minutes.

Lots of use for the words F*ck as well as my favourite C*cks*ckers.
I watch this series with my boyfriend every night and each time we get stunned at how they really went ahead and did what we speculated in our heads. The producers, writters and directors had balls to actually do what they did.

For that, I just LOVE IT!

I got tired of watching series that are always so damn predictable and boring because nothing really bad happens.

Deadwood, expect the unexpected.

PS : this is easily a 18+ series. Honestly, if you have kids, hide it somewhere and do not watch with them. Cursing and sex and other profanities are popular and always around.

Pick it up!
