"Addictive viewing"
5 stars"

I had seen all three seasons on TV but had to buy all three seasons on DVD also, fantastic scripts, brilliant acting, authentic and very historically close to the facts. 1877, Dakota Territory, the spread of the United Sates Government throughout the territories is played out and the struggles of the inhabitants of Deadwood camp. From the gold prospectors toiling in the creeks and streams to those trying to fleece them of their hard won gains. Gritty, brutally frank language and almost Shakespearian banter bring this production up above anything you will have experienced before or sine on television, Starring Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Powers Boothe, Brian Cox and many other outstanding talents and brought to us by HBO (Band of Brothers, Sopranos, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire) if you are not offended by bad language this is a must have for any fan of great historical drama.

We love it, gritty, well acted, thought provoking. Can't wait to start season 2. On a par with The Wire, Breaking Bad & Treme

Watched nearly the entire season in one go … This draws you in and you just NEED to know more about the characters. Dialogue is so intriguing!

Gone before it's time, this is an amazing show, with nuanced performances, crackling dialogue and excellent production values. A must for any fan of the Western, or of high quality, character-driven storytelling.
