Amazon has a great deal on Deadwood: The Complete Series on Blu-ray Disc for $73.49 with free shipping.
Deadwood represents one of those periodic, wholesale reinventions of the Western that is as different from, say, Lonesome Dove as that miniseries is from Howard Hawks’s Rio Bravo or the latter is from Anthony Mann’s The Naked Spur. In many ways, HBO’s Deadwood embraces the Western’s unambiguous morality during the cinema’s silent era through the 1930s while also blazing trails through a post-NYPD Blue, post-The West Wing television age exalting dense and customized dialogue. On top of that, Deadwood has managed an original look and texture for a familiar genre: gritty, chaotic, and surging with both dark and hopeful energy. Yet the show’s creator, erstwhile NYPD Blue head writer David Milch, never ridicules or condescends to his more grasping, futile characters or overstates the virtues of his heroic ones.
