Did You Know?


Many of the buildings that made up the set of Deadwood (2004) had been altered or demolished by subsequent productions shot at the Melody Ranch, and the original blueprints lost. The Bullock home, for example, had been demolished to make way for Westworld (2016) and had to be rebuilt. Production designer Maria Caso, who won an Emmy for her work on the series, was forced to study the original series to accurately rebuild original landmarks. See more »


At the end of the film, Al and Jewel sing the Australian ballad "Waltzing Matilda." The story takes place in 1889, but "Waltzing Matilda" was composed in 1895 and first published in 1903. See more »


Trixie: For ain't it so sir, it's the thieving and throat-cutting, them's bloodied and dead in the mud, as still stiffens the member in your long-johns? Nor, ought I fail to remark the semblance from this vantage twixt your very mug and a snatch has gone haired-over-sideways!

One of the BEST ever series on TV
1 June 2019 | by Harbour184See all my reviews

Finally, we returned to Deadwood! My family has been waiting for this for SOO Long...we felt like we were attending a family reunion after being away for 10 years...this is the most perfect ending to a perfect series...every once in a while in the movie industry, all actors, actresses, plot, scenery, director & writer come together to make an unforgettable, magical work of art....this is DEADWOOD. The characters have aged but the magnificent prose that each espoused years ago is still as familiar as old slippers....The end was very much like attending the funeral of a beloved relative....too bad there will never be another masterpiece like this show!
