Trivia

Series Creator David Milch is a recovering gambling addict in real-life, and drew on his own experiences for part of the storyline. He jokingly refers to that part of his life as "the most expensive research period" of his career. The sad part is that making the show caused him to relapse on his gambling addiction. See more »

Major Mistake for HBO to Remove Great Moment for Viewing
25 March 2012 | by lukeinsandiego-1See all my reviews

Not only is this one of the best attempts at drama HBO has ever produced, the finished product has a quality and sheen rarely achieved in this venue. This cast is beyond belief with an interaction I have never seen before. Hoffman, Ortiz and Nolte make the simplest gestures memorable. The writing is so mesmerizing it seems to be over before it's barely begun. The other less-obvious fact no one gets is that this effort has the potential of cult status which many thought John from Cincinati aspired to but did not fulfill, trailing off instead to mediocrity. It would be very simple for the brilliant writers to create (with long-shots, archival footage and slow-mo} a finished product which relies mainly on clever writing and (God forbid I say it) Artistic Action Sequences. This wonderful attempt should not be scrapped--it should be re-thought.
