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 »


Al Swearengen: [after Doc Cochran walks into Al's office without knocking] Walk in unannounced is a good way to get yourself killed, Doc, especially as the cavalry has us besieged.
Doc Cochran: I'm here about the minister. He's over at my place, past my art if I had any. He's damn near blind, mostly paralyzed. Past controlling his functions.
Al Swearengen: Well, you're preachin' to the fuckin' converted. Me, I would've seen to him, but... I've been fuckin' busy.
Doc Cochran: Well, he doesn't wanna be seen to like that.
Al Swearengen: What the fuck are we talkin' ...

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.
