NEVERTHRONERS! To your #got bunkers! This is going to be a rough one!
When Deadwood originally ran on HBO, I would record every episode. I watched it live, but by the next night I was watching the episode again. I did this for all three seasons.
David Milch is a writer like no other. He is a verbal artist, painting complex and layered pictures that you have to allow to simmer for a bit before you fully grasp them. Where many saw just dirty language everywhere, they were a part of the tapestry of Deadwood. If you don’t like the language, fine, just don’t watch, but I have never seen any other writer able to say more with an F-word than Milch.
Thankfully, the newest trailer for the Deadwood movie shows nothing has changed.
Warning, not safe for work language.
It’s art. It’s verbal jousting. I can only ever dream of writing something this beautiful.
May 31 can’t get here fast enough.
… or June 1 when I’m sure to watch it again…
