Did You Know?


When Merrick removes the lens cap while taking a photo of the cavalry officers; he loses his grip of the lens cap and it remains in front of the lens. Since photographs taken in this way required a long exposure a mistake like this would have resulted in ruined picture. The picture that Merrick later laments about and hopes to re-shoot shows no evidence of the lens cap that was in the way earlier. See more »


E.B. Farnum: [as Russell leaves the hotel] Antemeridian constitutional, Mr. Russell? Or will we roll the bones again?
Otis Russell: It must cost you sleep. The guests you drive off, the chances of thievin' and bilkin' you lose, needing to rub against your betters.
[he smiles and heads for the door, but before he can walk out, Seth confronts him in a barely concealed rage]
Seth Bullock: You and I are gonna talk.
Otis Russell: You don't account for my preferences, Mr. Bullock?
Seth Bullock: I will beat you here in the street.
Otis Russell: First-rate thinking.

Really good first season
12 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first season of Deadwood is really good, sometimes great Television. I wouldn't say that I'm quite as enamored with it as most fans of the show are, and as those who always praise it. Still, fascinating characters and the show isn't built around as much plot as I thought it would. I assumed it would be something like Breaking Bad, but alas, it is not (not that it's a bad thing). The performances are great, and for once, some great female characterization. McShane stands as the show's MVP as of now but he doesn't hold that title without competition. A lot of the supporting characters lend a great hand in this, and as predicted, it's a joy to watch.
