Top notch western series that's set in the North American Goldrush era, Cica1870. It's well written, produced and acted. Not much is left to the imagination, verbally or visually. Family viewing this is not! The lead actor, Ian McShane is convincingly evil and worryingly, a likable ruthless killer at the same time. The producers went to great lengths to make the set as authentic as possible, the detail is amazing. Why, `Fist full of dollars' meets `Shakespeare'? Well, as you may find out if you buy this excellent box set, the script sounds as though it was penned by the great bard himself. You're sometimes left wondering what the character has just said or meant due to the script being written in a syntax that one can only assume was the norm in North America some 140 years ago. It's quite wonderful how the characters communicated with each other, which is now sadly a long forgotten way of speaking.

I bought this ostensibly for my husband but actually because I wanted it for myself. Said goodbye to terrestrial and digital telly for a week and immersed myself in Deadwood.
As usual HBO has produced a high quality series which is nothing short of mesmerising. My only complaint is that it seemed somewhat rushed in the last couple of episodes and felt rather incomplete although to be fair this may have been the result of the directors and writers expecting another series in which to bring things to a more satisfactory conclusion.

Deadwood is set in the town of the same name in about 1875 although the events it depicts actually occurred over a longer time-span. Its characters are for the most part based upon its real inhabitants from Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane to the anonymous con-man pedlar of soap, although considerable liberty has been taken with their personalities and actions during the period of the Gold Rush and the negotiations to become part of the Dakota Territory. You can look them up in the official website and in Wikipedia. The power struggle between the two saloon and brothel owners, Al Swearingen and Cy Tolliver form the backdrop to most of the action while gripping story lines involving the self appointed sheriff Seth Bullock's affair with Alma, the rich widowed mine owner , the whore Trixie, the world- weary doctor and the tragic preacher. All of these stories contain elements of black humour, true human kindness, sadness and occasional terrifying evil. Violence is ever present and murder commonplace. This is not a series for your Auntie Minnie or for the faint hearted. Obscenity and blasphemy occur with eye-watering frequency throughout though this is oddly enough not as offensive as one might imagine considering the characters and plotting.

The first thing that strikes on first viewing is the seemingly gratuitous bad language but it very quickly becomes part of the experience and recreation of the hard living early gold-rush. Thereafter you are drawn into the lives of the various characters and as series one and two progress the dialogue becomes almost Dickensian with the occasional Shakespearian soliloquy thrown in; yes, it really is that witty, clever and beautifully creative. The cast are universally superb; irrepressible, improbably honourable and compassionate saloon owner Al Swearengen (played with great aplomb by Ian McShane); irredeemably drunken Jane Canary (Robin Weigert - forget any images of Doris Day you may be harbouring); greedy and obsequious hotel owner E.B. Farnum (William Sanderson); upright but short tempered Seth Bullock (Timothy Oliphant)... the list goes on.

In season three, however, things fall apart a little. The episode synopses disappear, it doesn't follow smoothly on from the end of season two (in fact I had to check that we were watching the first disk of the series), new characters are introduced with no apparent plot to support their presence (witness the brief appearance of the Earp brothers and the utterly pointless theatre troupe) and the script seems to lose its earlier virtuosity, perhaps through the absence of Ed Bianchi as producer. Throughout the season, animosity builds between the odious mining magnate Hearst and Al Swearengen, but the skilfully managed tension just fizzles out in a most unsatisfying (though plausibly realistic) ending.

As with every other HBO series we've watched, the production values, casting, script and attention to detail are unrivalled and a few minutes in Wikipedia give testament to the attempt at historical veracity (with an acceptable level of poetic licence).

1876. The Black Hills. A gold-rush attracts the desperate, the greedy and the vicious to a frontier town called Deadwood, a two-street mining camp dominated by saloon bar owner and pimp, Al Swearengen. Against this simple but deadly backdrop, plays out a story so rich in character, detail and incident, that most other dramas seem pedestrian by comparison.

HBO seems to have hit on a winning formula but the outcome is anything but formulaic. Like Oz, The Sopranos and The Wire, Deadwood is another stunning production that this reviewer finds outstanding, especially in light of the fact that I am not overly keen on the Western genre.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about Deadwood (at least for British audiences) is that the character who dominates the series, around who all things seem to revolve, cut-throat Al Swearengen is superbly acted by Ian "Lovejoy" McShane. No, really. McShane steels every scene he is in; a brutal, profane man, who talks to a box containing the decapitated head of a dead Indian, who verbally abuses his prostitutes and other employees with an acid tongue, McShane is a revelation. Around him orbit a stellar cast. I shall mention no names because each and every one of them turns in an amazing performance. When taken together, the whole ensemble shines.

The writing, too, is again full of character and subtlety, almost too much to take in at one sitting. It is both heart-felt and honest, laugh-out-loud funny and yet brutal and savage. It takes a little time for the ear to adjust to the syntax employed; the lexis, too, seems of a particular age but once attuned, this particular writing style allows a range of expression that doesn't seem permissible in contemporaneous writing.
