Did You Know?


A.W. Merrick is apparently a fan of Henry David Thoreau. Visible on the wall of the Deadwood Pioneer office is a framed quote from Thoreau's "Walden." It reads " (The) written word is the choicest of relics. It is something at once more intimate with us and more universal than any other work of art. It is the work of art nearest to life itself. It may be translated into every language, and not only be read but actually breathed from all human lips; - not be represented on canvas or in marble only, but be carved out of the breath of life itself."

When Hostetler and Samuel Fields are by the campfire while searching for the horse, Hostetler rolls away from the fire and pulls his jacket up over his shoulder and most of his back as a blanket. When the camera angle changes to Samuel, and then back to Hostetler, his jacket is now under his arm and barely covering his back. See more »

Philosophical Western!!!
28 June 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Deadwood since the beginning enchanted me,those colorful characters developed very carefully and well crafted in a wild place of history,the plot are smart in every episode exploring all possibilities in this specific ground,nonetheless all characters has a philosophical speech ,giving to the audience a sensation that it could be in high European court instead in the old western,there's no simple guy...all they are wise,therefore sometimes it's clever conversation and one thing more to complicate the second season don't have a dubbing version,so as they speak so fast became hard to understand quickly reasoning.... besides that is a fantastic series that l enjoy to much!!!Also Shakespeare did too!!
