I don't think so. pauper's field in denver would be my best guess 'cause it doesn't look like he's planted with the rest of his kin in oskaloosa.

I don't remember why Deadwood was cancelled but Rome was cancelled because of the huge cost of doing the show.  But based on what they learned on Rome - they were able to figure out how to deliver Game of Thrones in a reasonable fashion.  And I think that was worth it.

One of my favorite scenes from Deadwood:

The Doc is alone in his cabin, breaking down as he rages against God to end the Preacher's suffering.

In his grief he lapses into a flashback of his experiences treating Civil War wounded on the battlefield.

For whatever reason this scene always stuck with me.

Feed Cy to the hogs, and make the 1 cute cheerleader in Lice Stadium the main attraction in the whorehouse. The rest, as Al Swearingen would say, "are not worth me thinking about or wasting my time to get my dick hard let alone worth working up to an explosion"

It has long been reported he was buried in an unmarked grave next to his twin brother Lem in Osky. I know when I raced at Eddyville there was a car from Osky that had "Al Swearengen" on the door of the car, and the guy who owned it was not named Al Swerengen. His lore was known around Mahaska and Marion counties long before Deadwood was made. Ironically, the market his brother owned is now the site of the Mahaska County courthouse. Fitting, huh?

The best thing about the fight scene is Swearingen's reaction.  When he thinks Dan is beat, he starts, subtly, to turn.  When Dan rallies, he has a look on his face of almost anthropological curiosity: well, would you look at that?

I always imagined the show ends with Silas Adams transforming into a smoke monster, violently dispatching Hearst's minions, and Swearengen and Bullock throw Hearst into a time vortex to 1974 San Francisco in the middle of a bank robbery.

GRCooper: Awesome show - I even liked the ending (the badasses got biatchslapped by someone infinitely more ruthless and powerfull)


I think the point was that killing Hearst would do no good as there would always be someone else, probably worst, to take his place.

Sure HBO. A show about a whiny fat chick is MUCH better than letting us see how Deadwood ends...or Carnivale for that matter.

I will never really get over Carnivale. Deadwood, season 1 and Carnivale season 1 are as good as TV gets for me. Sadly, I thought season 3 of deadwood started to lose momentum and wander as they kept throwing in new characters they couldn't keep up with.

2014-03-07 10:10:29 AM
Looking back on the series I cant think of any show with a better pilot. I mean it is full of action, establishes the major characters, and most of the first season plotlines, but does it without being full of bullshiat exposition.

I loved every HBO series I've ever watched ... but for some reason I never watched Deadwood, and by the time I finished Rome and The Wire and thought about watching it, all I heard on the Internet were people biatching about how it was prematurely cancelled.  So my question is this - is it still worth watching even if I know it's going to crash to an abrupt halt ?


/ Still pissed about Luck being cancelled ... That show had a ton of promise.  And Kerry Condon.

hestheone: I think the point was that killing Hearst would do no good as there would always be someone else, probably worst, to take his place.


I think Al even mentions something about how if they kill Hearts all his cronies, plus the US government would be on their asses even worse than he was. I mean it is not like killing Hearst gets rid of the gold.

Deadwood was also really expensive, but after season 3 HBO proposed doing a shortened season to wrap things up. David Milch (the shows creator) wasn't into that, so they proposed two feature length movies. He started telling actors the show was cancelled, and it was leaked to the press (and that is how HBO execs say they heard about cancellation). I think a big part of it was that by that point David Milch had sort of moved on and was focusing his energy on John From Cincinnati. The fact that he moved on, at least I think, is a big reason why the movies weren't made, since for a long time a lot of the actors were saying that if there was a Deadwood project they would want to be in it.  Alan Sepinwall's book"The Revolution Was Televised" has a chapter on Deadwood and they talk about the cancellation.

It's difficult to describe, but it's not quite an abrupt halt.  There were unresolved storylines, but nothing major.  I would call it more of a strategic deflation.  Deadwood probably could have gone another year without getting stale, and I think it was so high quality that people just want it back because they liked it, not because they NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED to so and so ..

No, my family and I were devastated by the loss of Carnivale and Deadwood,but we gave John from Cincinnati a chance anyway and were hooked -- then similarly devastated by the loss of that show, too. At that point, we became very leery of HBO shows, only to try again with Rome and AGAIN be disappointed. Sigh.

At least GoT and True Detective are not in danger, else I might, in this motherfarking world of Hoopleheads and cocksuckers, have to think of putting that farking channel in my sights and blasting it out of my god damned, motherfarking misery.

My favorite scenes were the ones where jane or charlie went to talk to wild bills grave. The acting there was always crazt strong.

I also liked the scene in the pilot where Ellsworth is at the Gem talking about his life has been,poundes flatter than hammered shiat, but it is ok because he is not beholden to anyone, and he is the owner of a working gold claim.

Deadwood gave us the gift of language, sure the story and plot lines were interesting but it was HOW and WHAT those sublime actors said that was so gd fascinating, it was cowboy Shakespeare, never forgive Milch for killing that show for the obscenity that was john from who-gives-a-fark.

Rome, Carnivale, Deadwood, Breaking Bad, Soprano's, not in any particular order are the best episodic shows you can watch and it is very hard to get added to that list since the bar was set so high. Perhaps House of Cards will make the list, it's certainly good, realllly good, but is it great?

As long as we're throwing memorable performances out there; William Sanderson's (EB Farnum) monologue while scrubbing the blood out of the floor in his hotel.  His pent up, impotent rage bubbling over was goosebumpy.
