Doc Cochran (credit only)


The camp turns out to vote - but as Bullock notes, the election may already have been decided. In light of the populace's mood, Langrishe delays the opening of his theater, and ponders his future in Deadwood. Hawkeye arrives at the Gem with "almost 18" men to complement Wu's contingent. Alma works out a deal for her claim. Joanie reaches out to a frustrated Tolliver. Through E.B., Hearst issues his conditions for departure, forcing Swearengen to finish what Burns can't.

I absolutely love this show and cannot believe that HBO is stupid enough to let this one go!! I agree that this show and Soprano's are the only reason I let Comcast bend me over for HBO. And honestly, the Soprano's has been a train wreck for the past few seasons. i read that HBO offered Milch half a season to finish the show and he said no. it wouldn't be enough to wrap up the loose ends. What i am curious about is how two two-hour movies(4 hours) is any better of an ending than half a season? i have been waiting for 7 months to find out when HBO will announce the season 4 premier and i have to find out through IMDb blogs that it isn't coming back?! Surely they don't think that people keep their subscription just to watch City of Angels (or any other movie HBO gets their hands on) 22 times in 2 weeks. I just checked, right now they are abusing us with The Siege...thanks HBO, it was nice having you around, I'll be switching to Showtime now for Dexter.
