Is no one here watching season two? When this show debuted after the Sopranos I found myself liking this show more. I was dying for Tony Soprano to quit acting like a wuss and finally break bad but it never happened. Thankfully Al Swearengen has taken care of my bad ass boss needs quite well. Al is so the f'n man.
A lot of plot turns are coming together now so if you have been missing it I suggest catching one of those three episode deals to get caught up.

Bah! More proof that apparently I'm the only person in America watching The Wire.
That said, I really enjoy Deadwood. The musicality of the different character's voices is really wonderful, just the cadence and the pitches and the sudden angry stops are a treat to listen to. The show probably has more soliloquys than any other show on television. And they're catchy. (Personal selfish note: I was trying to fix the lines running to my washer, and things weren't going well. The lines had gotten clogged with hard-water minerals and had basically fused to the hot/cold water spigots. I was skinning my knuckles and basically having a hard time not breaking the pvc pipes, and the only thing that prevented me from a burst of insane rage was my keeping up a low murmuring stream of Deadwood profanity.)
Anyway, for those interested, the New Yorker recently ran a very long profile on the show's creator, David Milch. Someone over at TVTome dutifully reprinted it, and you can read it here:

Deadwood is indeed a fantastic show. The dialogue is wonderfully eloquent and crass at the same time. I love it. Watching Deadwood is watching art unfurl before your eyes. I have Deadwood, sex, poker, and The Shield. It's good to be alive.
