This review is from: Deadwood Ultimate Collection Seasons 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)
There are many TV series that i gave a five star rating. West Wing, The Wire, Sopranos, Braquo and the Killing (original)
All of these are outstanding. After this last (3rd time viewing) of Deadwood i'm putting it at the top.
The story which is stuffed full of reality according to history, is amazing. The dialogue is Shakesperean, and the acting without exception is brilliant. To pick out two actors; Robin Weigert as Calamity Jane and Ian McShane are stunning.
Buy and watch it in big chunks, three episodes a night, you will not be dissapointed?
Just watched it for the fourth time, i put disc one back in after ejecting the last disc of series 3.
A truly astonishing tour de force of tv drama. So many astonishing performances, David Milch obviously has a supernatural ability to bring out great performances from his cast.
I could go on for a long time about the performances, the sets, the dialogue and the story, but many have commented in words that are more polished than mine.
I can only say that if you love great drama, with a cast that never puts a foot wrong, this set must be your first port of call.
Buy it now, and you will never regret.
