Did You Know?


During the Amateur Night performance, a woman singing "Jesus Loves Me" is approached by a drunk holding a modern bottle of Bulleit Bourbon. Although this bourbon was initially produced in the 19th century, it ceased in 1860, prior to the time period of Deadwood. The bottle is the same design as that of its present incarnation, revived in 1999. See more »

One of the best...minor spoilers
18 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Just a quick review on this one. Seeing Al not knowing what to do, Hurst slowly taking over the camp, Cy slowly losing more and more power, Jane and Jonie connecting and Bullock being loyal to the newly arrived Earp boys is a delight and one of my favorite Episodes. The ending scene with Al singing alone in the Gem just make this one. I know its nearly coming to an end, and this makes me sad because i really liked that show seeing it the first time at 2014 and not being a western fan. As always i find Timothy Olifant extremely...stiff, shall we say, but even he could convince me this time. Seeing Al alias Ian Mcshane not knowing what to do kills me, but gives a new perspective on his character as well.
