I've just started Deadwood, on episode 5. It's kinda like The Wire in that I'm struggling to get used to the accents (I'm a bit deaf due to my habit of listening to loud walkmens in my youth) and plots are complex and building slowly. Oh yes, unlike The Wire its a 'western'.

I never wanted to watch The Wire, having lived in Baltimore I was afraid it would be too much information.

and I can't stand westerns. :thumbdown: 3:10 to Yuma wasn't bad though.

I'm starting to like the slowly building plots in this. Also, interesting to see the range of, and depth to, the female characters. So, not a straightforward western. It's set in a town called Deadwood, ca 1860s - gold rush time. The town is not under Washington jurisdiction because it's in Sioux territory, drawn according to some treaty already dishonoured. It's a lawless town, and the town apparently in which Wild Bill Hicock died (he's a character in the show).

Was that were Calamity Jane was set?
They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...

McFuck, do report back on Amelia; I have a small, slow-burning curiosity about the aviator.

well, it wasn't good but it wasn't bad. she seemed like a right annoying person, and somewhat stupid to fly across the ocean without enough fuel.

they didn't even take a little rubber raft!

Withwine

indeed, Calamity Jane and Hickok are characters in the series. In fact, I just looked at Wikipedia and several of the characters are historical figures:

Did you actually enjoy the first one?

Two films I really enjoyed are Zombieland and The human centipede. That is one seriously messed up film but I don't think I've ever laughed so much, even to Withnail & I.
