Storyline

As Deadwood readies for a celebration, George Hearst's arrival in camp brings upheaval. Hearst cuts ties with Wolcott and makes separate arrangements with Swearengen regarding the camp's "celestials", and E.B., who suffers from gastric difficulties. Tensions in camp boil over between Andy and Cy, as well as in "Chinaman's Alley". Swearengen orchestrates new elections, and sends Bullock home to his wife. Written by WyattJones

where is the credit for Francis Ford Coppola?
22 March 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Before I start this review -- a review themed on the nature of beginnings and endings -- I suggest that if you are watching on DVD go back to the 47:00 mark and notice the way the writers worked a suicide so delicately into an episode about .. a wedding. This is an unforgettable scene, high art, and one of the most memorable scenes in TV I have ever seen.

I have said in past reviews that moreso than other series DEADWOOD best resembles an ongoing Broadway play disguised as a western disguised as a TV show.

And here is proof.

In TV, even in top shows, there are very few endings. There are climaxes. There are resolutions. But the endings are generally left to the imagination of the viewer, and the time they would have otherwise taken spent on commercial breaks.

So here, a showcase of writing and acting, is an episode which is really one very long ending.

And a missing credit to Francis Ford Coppola for perfecting the technique (in Godfather 1 2 and 3) matching simultaneous scenes that reach their conclusions in perfect sync.
