I know this has probably been discussed to death but I’m a late comer, sorry. I just finished up my Netflix/ Deadwood marathon and thoroughly enjoyed the show. I was a bit disappointed to find out the show had in fact be canceled and not actually just ended its storyline, of coarse I found that out about four episodes into season 2. DOH! I wonder why HBO just canceled it? I understood it always got good ratings. Wouldn’t they have a bit more say in a show than say just a regular network? If they planned on canceling it, I wonder why they didn’t give it a few more episodes to give it a proper ending? I also wonder when they knew they were canceling it because I could have done with a lot less of the acting troupe storylines and the Jane/Joanie storylines. Actually I could have done without the whole acting troupe storyline as I didn’t think a single character there was interesting in the least bit. So a few questions. Spoilers Did the whole “Showdown” with the town against Hearst end because he left or was he leaving because he didn’t want to be there for it? Did Bullock lose the election or did the towns folk come through for him in the end? Why was Mrs. Ellsworth leaving at the end? I though she sold her mine to Hearst and didn’t have to leave? Or was she leaving because the big “Showdown” was about to happen? Lastly I understand that there is a complete set of the DVD’s that has a bonus disk where the creators tell what would have happened in the fourth season. Anyone seen it?
