Another classic from HBO
on 9 October 2009
Is there no end to HBO's brilliance in drama. The Sopranos, The Wire and now Deadwood have all raised the bar in terms of television drama. Gritty, realistic, brutal, absorbing and very atmospheric. This is one of the greatest television productions that I had ever seen.
To fully appreciate and to fully understand and enjoy Deadwood; you need to watch the very first episode. Something that I failed to do when I first tried watching Deadwood. Becuase of this; I struggled to get into the story and the characters. However, once I saw the very first episode I found this hugley enjoyable.
Well written, fantastic acting and the whole production has you believing that your watching real-life events from the old American-west. Sometimes, due to accents and a certain old way of talking; Deadwood can be a little hard to follow, but after a while it becomes easier.
Once I watched season one .... I emmediately ordered season 2 and 3 off Amazon; and I cant endorse Deadwood enough.
