Deadwood

The Wire is absolutely brilliant. Just wanted to grind your gears a little earlier. The Wire and The Sopranos are playing in a own television league imo.

I agree. They're 1 and 1A for me.

A hipster, as i understand the word, would hate The Wire once all you late comers jumped on MY FUCKING BOAT!!

right?

Ahoy, matey. The girls always tellin' me about the little man in the boat. Now, I know who they talkin' 'bout.

Apparently extreme arrogance is the antidote to hipsterism. Being as how I loved it, I always assumed everyone loved it, and this is the first I'm hearing about it being jazz.

I think Justified is going to finish strong and then all you hipsters are gonna be like "damn the dialogue in the Wire and Deadwood was small potatoes and weak sauce respectively compared to the paragon of televising, Justified. ". Buy yeah the dialogue.in Deadwood = amazeballs.

Justified is a brilliant programme. I thought it was just another procedural but it grew into something amazing.


It got put on a wanky channel in the UK, and the final series is not being aired.

I really, really like Justified but its dialogue ain't got nothing on Deadwood's.

Just a simple fact of life.

I think I watched some Justified episodes, but it far too often came down to a quick draw shootout to make much sense in the modern world. Keep thinking I'll give it another shot because Oliphant rocks, but it was a bit too much like those old cops shows that always end in a car chase.

The first season sorta sucks, but it gets a lot better.

I thought the latest season was the worst

Yeah it wasn't that great either. But the middle seasons are good! Hopefully they end it well, but I'll never forgive them for not getting Ian McShane on there.

Though it has left my face unscarred, I sometimes regret being a man of peace, as it has prevented me from using many a great Deadwood quotation when engaging in hostile encounters or fist fights.



For example:


"I will profane your fucking remains."


"Have you ever smelt human flesh on the spit? I know the smell. It pleased me to find out."


"If I take a knife to you you'll be scared worse and a long time dying"


"What a type you must consort with that you not fear beating for such an insult"

"What a type you must consort with that you not fear beating for such an insult"

What was the context for this line? I don't recall.

Arguing with Jarry over the bribe, on the day of William's funeral.

"I'm compelled to wonder, Mr Swearengen if this show of grief is a pretext to some other purpose."

"What a type you must consort with that you not fear beating for such an insult."

I just started season 3 and am getting sad that it's almost over. I swear I would watch a show about EB and Richardson. It would be amazing.
