Set in an ungoverned stretch of South Dakota soon after the 1876 Custer massacre, Deadwood concerns a lawless, evolving town attracting fortune-seekers, drifters, tyrants, and burned-out adventurers searching for a card game and a place to die. Others, particularly women trapped in prostitution, sundry do-gooders, and hangers-on have nowhere else to go. Into this pool of aspiration and nightmare arrive former Montana lawman Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) and his friend Sol Starr (John Hawkes), determined to open a lucrative hardware business. Over time, their paths cross with a weary but still formidable Wild Bill Hickok (Keith Carradine) and his doting companion, the coarse angel Calamity Jane (Robin Weigert); an aristocratic, drug-addicted widow (Molly Parker) trying to salvage a gold mining claim; and a despondent hooker (Paula Malcomson) who cares, briefly, for an orphaned girl. Casting a giant shadow over all is a blood-soaked king, Gem Saloon owner Al Swearengen (Ian McShane), possibly the best, most complex, and mesmerizing villain seen on TV in years. Each of these characters, and many others, will forge alliances and feuds, cope with disasters (such as smallpox), and move--almost invisibly but inexorably--toward some semblance of order and common cause. Making it all worthwhile is Milch's masterful dialogue--often profane, sometimes courtly and civilized, never perfunctory--and the brilliant acting of the aforementioned performers plus others. --Tom Keogh
Worth every penny. It's criminal the series has never gotten a proper ending. One of the best western shows you can hope to see. It turns swearing into an art form.Published 2 days ago by A.J.
What a great series!! It was so true to the time period, which made some parts rough and violent but I appreciated all the work that went into the making of the series. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Sara Sims
My husband is watching it for the second time. He says it was his best Christmas presentPublished 13 days ago by Robyn Martin
Great show. Happy I got the entire series at such a wonderful price. The box the discs store in was a bit ragged and bent up, but no really big deal.Published 15 days ago by DeeDee
The first thing that strikes on first viewing is the seemingly gratuitous bad language but it very quickly becomes part of the experience and recreation of the hard living early... Read morePublished 17 days ago by Willy Eckerslike
Great stories! Perhaps the best series on TV ever. A pity Deadwood got screwed out of doing season 4!Published 20 days ago by Jon Bradley
Gifted to parents who love westerns and recounts of actual events - although based on actual, most is fiction. They loved this series, as I did while on HBO. Read morePublished 22 days ago by MeanSuga

|Why was Deadwood cancelled? It was such a good show!||
I guess I totally missed season 4 and 5. There were only 3 seasons of Deadwood

|does box set have ending included?||
No "ending" was ever made, nor will it be made. I have a love/hate relationship with the show for that reason. It's probably the best thing I've ever seen on television but it is so disappointing that there was no wrap-up to the series.

|How many seasons of Deadwood were there?||
Marketing the DVD set as "The Complete Series" just makes me hate HBO more. They killed this wonderful series without resolving anything. Heck, the series ending show isn't even a good season ending show. After HBO ended Carnivale prematurely, I considered dropping my subscription,... Read More

|Under $75 for the whole series||
Unfortunately for me, I bought it from Amazon on Dec. 20th at $102.99 thinking THEN that was the best price I had ever seen!
75 bucks is a steal.

|Does this set scratch the DVD's||
Yes, it's that type of box set (that makes it extremely difficult for the user not to scratch the sides of the disks when removing them). The sleeves are rounded (side/bottom) and so tightly flat you cannot buckle them. When you slide a disk out it scrapes against the side(s). What I did... Read More
