    I've been binging on Deadwood (while watching it for the first time) in preparation for this.

    That's a refreshingly frank interview and I certainly understand why he was so skittish about doing it. I'm glad it worked out and it sounds like he really enjoyed doing the movie despite his worries.

    That was awesome! I hope that California cocksucker Hearst gets hung.

    I doubt it; while Milch has had no qualms about playing fast and loose with aspects of history (Swearengen wasn't born in England; Martha Bullock was Seth's childhood sweetheart, not his brother's widow), they're usually little things; George Hearst died in 1891 in Washington, D.C. while serving as a senator from California.

    Looks incredible. Hard to believe this is a thing that actually exists. I know personally, I've been wanting this since 2007.
    Damn, according to trailer, looks like (spoilers, Deadwood S3)
    Hearst knows Trixie was the one that shot him, and that she wasn't Jen, the blonde whore from the Gem that Johnny loved who died to placate Hearst's rage.

    My only worry is 1h50m isn't going to be long enough.

    Bullock's a marshall now... but Hearst is a senator. Hoping for an epic showdown - but Milch isn't one to be predictable!

    All we know for sure is there will be blood. Tell your God to ready for it.

    I'm looking for something to watch on a weekly basis in order to justify keeping my HBO Now subscription so that I can share it with a sister of mine who wants to watch Game of Thrones as a book-reader, so I have a query: would Deadwood be worth my time if I like(d) things like GoT, Westworld, Penny Dreadful, and Black Sails?

    Depends if you're going to be offended by cussing that is anachronistic for the middle to late 1870s or tweaks made to the historical record for the sake of entertainment. The first two seasons definitely outshine the third although it has its moments.

    It's only 3 seasons & a soon to be released movie. So if you're looking for something as long running as GoT then you're not getting that. Its quality is maybe the best thing HBO ever made, certainly one of the best things. It's got an amazing cast of names, too numerous to detail, which is why it was cancelled to begin with, because they didn't want to keep shelling out the cash to pay them all. That's not even including all the surprising walk through appearances. (Which is worth the viewing just to see those)

    However, the language (Apart from its liberal use of profanity & racist epithets) is actually very densely verbose at times. I'm not sure how it compares to some of the other shows you mentioned, but (For a Western?) some of these characters speak quite intellectually at length, even antiquatedly, whilst simultaneously being very course & blunt. It's an interesting contradiction they showcase, of having characters that are both wildly crude & vulgar, but sometimes also speak with a much more formal tongue than we do, almost Victorian. I've known people who found it tough to follow along with, because of that. It's a show that requires paying close attention to what they're saying, because at times the plot moves through very wordy dialogue.

    That said, it all gels perfectly. Everything works to keep you invested in the stories of the characters imho, though yes, those stories did have much more tension in the earlier 2 seasons

    I'm doing a rewatch in prep for the movie, and does this show make way more sense the second time around understanding language used and how dialogue driven it is. I'm realizing how much i missed during the first viewing. I love this show even more now.
