5 A HELL OF A PLACE TO MAKE A FORTUNE.MovieAddict | 23/09/2009 | See all MovieAddict's reviews (1336)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Having missed all three series when first aired, probably due to being a western, as I can take or leave the Western movies, but thanks to excellent word of mouth I decided to give it a go. From the very first episode I was hooked, this is simply some of the best Tv I have ever seen, and coming from HBO it can rate up there with Band Of Brothers and Generation Kill as some of the best hard hitting Drama to hit he small screen. Like Band Of Brothers and Generation Kill, this amazing box-set never is restricted to TV limitations, as the series never skimps on the brutality and language of the time. The show feels very realistic, and the story arc over the three seasons is brilliantly told. With superb performances all round, and a star making turn of Ian McShane, Deadwood is a western series that has to be seen, even like me if your not such a big fan of the subject. Don't go thinking your going to see a updated version of Bonanza, this show is gritty, brutal, and darkly funny. It's that good, it should be seen as a 36 hour long movie, and is so imersive, will stand up to repeated viewing.This is probably the best Western ever made.
