Next round's on the house, and pussy's half-price for the next 15 minutes!

My HBO masters boardwalk and quagmire with aplomb. Those that doubt me... suck cock by choice.

Now this is some good f*cking news.
We need a Carnivale wrap-up movie too.

That's cool...but isn't Seth Bullock busy with Drew Barrymoore at the moment?

They need to do it soon before more cast members buy the farm. Richardson died in 2015, and Ian McShane is no spring chicken either.

The movie will be entirely about the theater troupe and Skyler's remarks about the tree in the middle of the schoolhouse.

I'm OK with missing Richardson as long as Molly Parker comes back because, damn - green eyes and red hair.

There will be no movie, you know this.  Stop getting my hopes yup.

Milch is reportedly dead broke thanks to his infamous gambling addiction, so not a real shocker he's rediscovered his creative muse regarding one of his most popular intellectual properties.

I'm trying to remember..... was it Milch or HBO who pulled the plug on Deadwood just before the 3rd season?

/because if it was Milch, then that was the results of his Bold Move Cotton

If that's the case, cancelling a critically-acclaimed award-winning show just before its third season....

I don't think HBO officially ended it, but they wanted to cut back the show because keeping the ensemble cast together was too expensive/unruly for a full season.  HBO and Milch went back between ending the show with a 6 episode short season/minseries/movie.  They couldn't come up with an agreement, so Milch (who was still under contract with HBO) moved onto creating John From Cinncinatti.

And HBO never had another hit series with such an ensemble cast that was so expensive and unruly.

I'm one of the few people I know that actually liked that show... I may be more upset at it getting cancelled than I am about Deadwood...

There were 3 seasons. It was Rome that only got 2.

I liked Al Swearengen was a much more interesting character than Tony Soprano - and less of an asshole.

I actually thought Deadwood had a pretty solid ending to the series at the end of the 3rd season when they ran Hearst out of town, even if all the loose ends weren't completely tied up.    Rather than picking up right where it left off, it would be intersting to see the characters 15-20 years later after the territory had been fully annexed and legitimized.    Especially considering where some of the real life characters ended up.   Calamity Jane had a crazy life after Deadwood, and claims she and Wild Bill had secretly married and had a child that she put up for adoption.   EB Farnum was eventually a highly successful Deadwood town mayor.   Swearengen reportedly lost everything when the Gem burned down in 1899 and died penniless.   Seth Bullock went into business with Starr on several highly prosperous business ventures and became a bit of  a local tycoon.  He later became really good friends with Teddy Roosevelt.

It felt like two and a suck. I tried to enjoy season three. There were some great performers, and some serious potential, but they just lost me. I was happier that they ended then continue at that level of quality.

Also a John from Cincinnati fan, but primarily for the cast. I always hoped Howard Hessman would do a cameo because I have odd hopes.

And McShane gets my eyeballs for every appearance he makes. I even found an old Space 1999 episode with him that I watched, out of respect.

My wife, some friends, and I once got asked to leave a bar in Las Vegas because of our excessive use of the word "cocksucker". We had been enjoying some Deadwood just prior to our visit.

His cameo in Thrones last season was memorable. He does chew up scenery, for sure.

He's also a kick-ass Wednesday in "American Gods," premiering April 30th on Starz!

Deadwood has one of my favorite alltime tv moments.

Wild Bill's buddy is trying to talk to him about how worried he and Calimity Jane are about Bill's drinking. He & Bill are sitting on opposite sides of the bed they are sharing in the boarding house. The guy hems & haws & finally spits it out, making sure to keep his back to his friend.

Eventually, in a low voice Bill asks him "Can't you let me go to hell in my own way?" His friend turns around & gives him a look of horror as it finally dawns on him just how bad Bill's situation is.

i was deep into the Beam at the time, so that moment hit me hard.

He needs the money to pay off the IRS and to get the testicles removed from under his chin.

If it matters- I am still mad about how they handled Rome. So much attention to detail- costumes, sets, locations, props .... I was in love with it from the first minute I saw it ( we had hbo at the time ) . And the writing, and the acting.... I was unsure I was actually watching a weekly show and not a film or mini series at the time. At the very least, that final scene "yeah, about your father" was better than I had hoped for.

It was a bit of both from what I recall. The story i read in Alan Sepinwall's book was that HBO wanted a shortened season and HBO and Milch were in the middle of negotiations to determine what shortened meant. At some point Milch called Timothy Olyphant and warned him not to buy the house he was looking at buying because he might not have a job. Olyphant called his agent and the story that the press got ahold of from there was that the show was being cancelled. At that point negotiations obviously fell apart.

Announcing your plans is a good way to hear God laugh.

Unless I see the bonafides on this movie getting done,  I advise all you hoopleheads to shiat in one hand, wish in the other, and see which one fills up first.

My favorite Deadwood moment, and a clip they should show on the Jumbotron during the national anthem at events instead of that clip of the flag flying:

Also introduced me to Titus Welliver, currently burning up the screen as Bosch.

OK, I am going to defend the ending of Deadwood. I realize the cancellation sucked, but the ending they put together was perfect.What did people want? The plucky townfolk rise up and defeat Hearst, and all goes on as it was? That's not how the world works, nor is that how it played out in the Gold Rush.Fact is, the plucky upstarts being humiliatingly crushed beneath the bootheel of wealth and power is how shiat plays out. It always has, from the beginning of time.
     The final episode was perfect. All the town's plans, the army assembled, the sheriff putting Hearst on notice. No, sir. I put YOU on notice. fark you. Claims consolidated. Lesser claims drained dry. Murder and intimidation. When righteous indignation rose to a boil in Deadwood, Hearst got on his wagon and rode out of town, leaving the residents to survey the chaotic scraps. "fark you Deadwood! Amalgamation and capital! HEARST OUT!!" ***drops megaphone***
