Default Anyone beside me digging Deadwood ?

Some serious stuff happening right now. Can't wait to see Woo bring his 150 chink corksuckers to camp.

GREAT season 3 for Deadwood! I'm sad that the show is ending.

Gerald McRaney and Ian McShane both better at least be nominated for Emmies. This and Brotherhood have really made Sunday nights good TV nights this summer.

Love Deadwood. My favorite show on TV right now, and I can't freaking believe that they're canceling it. Very much looking forward to this Sunday, even if it is the last episode.

Supposedly the plan is for the creator to do 2 or 3 Deadwood 'movies' that are about 2 hours each, in order to wrap things up next year. I really hope though that he reconsiders and agrees to do the show for another season.

I don't know this to be true, but i'm guessing that this is a money dispute between HBO and the creator. He claims that it's 'run it's course' and doesn't want to do the show anymore, but i have a hunch that if HBO stepped up and threw some additional cash at him he'd come back for a 4th season.

The show itself has to cost a ton to make. With the elaborate sets, to having all those actors on location, along with the horses and all the extras.

I assumed that the Deadwood town set was built in Los Angeles. If not on a studio lot, then probably close by.

It's not really in South Dakota or some other statem is it?

My understanding is that exterior shots are done on location - a lot of the extras are South Dakota townies - but that interior shots are done in a studio. They did the same thing with the old Northern Exposure series.
