Deadwood - TV Show

Recommended Posts

So, after all this, I'm best off pirating it?

Yeah, first thing I do when I get home tonight is pirating the US set, which has tonnes of special features and commentaries and in sync audio.

Paramount UK have told me that it's been tested by everyone from the guy who makes the screws that keep the pressing machine together to Super Jesus, the Jesus that Jesus worships, and it's fine, final offer. So I'm going to see if I can contact HBO's management about instead.

Really difficult to imagine how they'd reassemble all the important cast members at the same time, as much as I'd adore this, although it'd be good if they had to replace the dreadful Timothy Oliphant, who single-handedly almost ruined the show originally.

Bullock is one of the best things about the show!

He is without question the worst thing about the show. Almost every other actor in it nails their character - Robin Weigert as Jane and William Sanderson as E.B. the real highlights imo - but Olyphant is so hopelessly miscast it threatens to detract from every scene he's in. He's far, far too pretty, for a start. A sheriff who moisturises and exfoliates? Come on. He minces about the camp like he's on a catwalk. He has no idea what to do with his arms - he's like an awkward pageboy at a wedding. If he'd swanned up to the real Al Swearengen in the real Deadwood camp and made that ridiculous 'I'm trying to be intimidating here' face, he would've been communally disemboweled by every punter in the Gem. Check him in this scene - 'You pie faced cocksucker. Get in here and account for your insult!' Lolol. You'd just laugh in his face. And he's supposed to be the sheriff! This beautiful, wispy, waif-like angel of a man then goes on to kick the shit out of a murderous thug like Swearengen, requiring a suspension of disbelief so huge it almost ruins the episode. He has no voice on him at all - this barely audible little creak that people in reality would strain to listen to and pretend to respect only out of sympathy, like when your shy, ill-suited male manager politely, stammeringly orders you to do someone else's job. Every time Seth Bullock turns up it reminds me of this. :lol:

He's hilarious though, the way he just gradually gets more confused and angered by everything around him as the series progresses is amazing

I think there's one scene where he's just sitting at dinner with The Widow Bullock and Tiny Boab saying nothing and he's looking like he wants to punch his potatoes into a coma. It slays me.

I also didn't like Tim Oliphant in Deadwood, but then I watched Justified and have grown to love him as an actor. That role suits him a lot better though, helps that Elmore Lenonard's dialogue suits him perfectly.

I love Olyphant in Deadwood. Not the star of the show, the cast being so strong it's hard to be. He's still bloody good.

Have Paramount sorted out the Blu-ray issues yet or is it still fucked? I fancy a wander through Deadwood again.

Read back a few pages for info. Paramount have stopped managing the UK distribution rights for HBO AFAIK but seeing as they technically co-own the show I don't know who will take over.

Oh :(

 

I originally went on Netflix to check for Justified, then Deadwood was among the suggestions and I remembered I've been meaning to watch it. Justified isn't on our Netflix sadly :(

Mostly, I think a few shows like Rome were co-productions with the BBC and so are on netflix.

Fuck me it's so good from the start.
