Deadwood it Ain't
20 January 2016 | by dg-13654See all my reviews

An interesting concept but far too sanitised

Should be far, far more gritty, violent and sweary. Deadwood which was a similar concept soared to majestic heights with dialogue approaching Shakespearian proportions and profanities which were entirely relevant within the context.

Some of the characterisation is is straight from central casting such as the "tart with a heart" and the drunk who sees the light thanks to the attention of a good woman.

The plot is entirely predictable as it comes lumbering over the horizon just as the trains will over the viaduct once it is eventually completed.

An opportunity missed.
