Finally, one cannot talk about Deadwood without mentioning its colorful language. Milch's take on the profanity of the series is that it exists as a common method of disavowing the passivity of language - that its absence questions the strengths of the characters. Which, ironically, makes the reader wonder about Milch's own profanity in the context of the book. If it's a veiled, macho posture: what does it conceal? We can but guess. For those, like myself, who despair at the loss of the series in its third season - and eagerly anticipate the concluding telefilms - this book is a great way to keep the show alive, it even includes an episode guide. I can't recommend it highly enough.
The book is presented in a very professional manner and there is hardly anything that I can think of that has been left out.A truly excellent tie in to an excellent series.Highly recommended.
This series is a master piece and the book is just great.
In watching the whole series you take on board that David Milch was finding his own way through the series and sometimes left you a little dimayed at the progress and introduction of so many characters. In watching, it was hard to put an "American TV" tag on it.
The quality of the book is brilliant and the interviews help a lot with the characters and how Milch works.
