I'm not a big TV watcher but I really dig HBO's new series, Deadwood, it's such a departure into the heavy metal underbelly of human tendencies and vices, I can't stop watching it.
The dialogue gets a little tiresome with the "f*ck'ing this" and "c#ck s*cker that" every other sentence. Don't get me wrong, I can cuss like a sailor, when inspired to (I have colleagues who can attest to this fact), it just gets a little old having it be such a dominant aspect of the script. I could complain that the ugly people are really damn ugly and the pretty/handsome ones are too much so but overall, I think it's a great show. The cinematic mise en scene of Deadwood is truly awesome: tough, gritty and grueling.
The next thing I'd like to see on Deadwood is a role for Ian Kilminster (AKA Lemmy), it'd be perfect!
