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
Shakespeare in the Old West, simply spectacular writing, but apparently not enough shootin' and killin' for the common folk...Published 21 hours ago by cw

More profanity that we expected, and we are not prudes but it does seem excessive. We are huge fans of Timothy Olyphant and he does not disappoint in his role. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Merrilee Mager
I loved this series the first time I saw it some years ago. I am loving it all over again. I am sort of forcing myself to only watch one episode a night so I can enjoy it longer! Read morePublished 15 days ago by betty conell

|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.

|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

|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.

|Justified on FX with Timothy Olphant(Bullock)||
Justified is a good show, a bit clichéd, but enjoyable none the less.
