Deadwood Ultimate Collection Seasons 1-3
on 24 February 2013
The show (5/5)
'Deadwood' is the masterpiece of one of the finest tv writers, David Milch. Milch started his career in 80's, writing many episodes for the outstanding cop show `Hill Street Blues', then in the he 90's co-created another revolutionary show, 'NYPD Blue'. With this show, he has written a great work centered around men, society, power, corruption; it's set in the far west, but it also talks about us and the present.
As well as `The Wire' and few others, 'Deadwood', in the era of the cliffhanger and plot twists, struggled to bring us another style of narration, dominated by powerful of dialogues, true characters and script solidity, pointing out the way to current shows.
The content (1/5)
Under this aspect, this boxset is very poor and disappointing. You'll find only the episodes and the english subtitles. No special feature whatsoever.
At least, the video quality is impressive
The package (3/5)
Six slim plastic cases wrapped in a light, one-side open carton box. The artwork has a fanart feeling, it looks nice, though it isn't 100% convincing.
ps. I'm not English: I apologize for all kind of errors you were forced to read.
