I just caught the newest episode of Deadwood and I believe it's the first one in a while where someone didn't get killed. Gerald Macraney plays evil wonderfully as George Hearst, and I think Calamity Jane will have competition with his new cook for "most foul-mouthed female" on the show. Richardson and Farnum continue to have the best dialog on the show.

I nearly did a spit-take when Richardson gave Farnum the thumbs up.
This is thing the about this show that The Sopranos seemed unable to accomplish. This episode was fairly inconsequential in terms of plot development - save for a couple of moments. But it was still pretty damned entertaining.

"Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first woman she meets and then teams up with three complete strangers to kill again." Unknown, Marin County newspaper's TV listing for "The Wizard of Oz"
Color me very happy that Joannie and Tolliver weren't focused on very much in this episode. At least not together.
How awesome is this show now that Brian Cox has shown up to join the cast? Can't tell if his character is gay or not - it seemed as if Swearengen knew something he wasn't telling the newspaper editor.
The timeline seems to be shuttling along fast. One week, Alma was dying. This episode, she's totally fine. And in tonight's episode, she is said to be opening the bank. Can't wait to see where things continue to lead with her and Bullock.
My biggest concern for the show post-Steve Carrell is that there's no character left to develop in the same manner that Michael Scott has developed over the course of the last seven seasons. Jim got Pam, and apparently is doing pretty well financially....
