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.

Oh it's the best show on HBO now. Al has to be my favorite character ever. When he was hurt for a couple weeks, the show just wasn't the same. Now that he's back talking again, it's amazing.

I would also say that Jane is awesome too. As are Al's henchmen. There are just too many great things here to mention.

I haven't watched the show, but can't get over the guy that looks like Ryan Seacrest.

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:

It is a long profile, but it's worth it. Somehow it's not at all surprising that Milch was a drug-addicted gambling addict. It makes the show seem more natural that it would spring from his head.

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.

I get what you're saying, but to me Nellie just makes me hate watching the show. Her character is basically just Michael Scott's lines (which is basically what Andy's been doing this season too)
