    I love these characters. So much.

    I wonder why Milch changed the 5 year plan to end with Bullocks hardware store cathing fire to a 4 year plan??

    I hope they fix the typos. And, the last sentence near the end (beginning with "Rewarding subcriber loyalty...") is very poorly worded. If they want to be taken serisouly by HBO and the entertainment community with an expensive ad in Variety of all things...they better make it a very professionally written piece.

    Well, that sucks. I'll have no reason to keep HBO after season 3 ends... if they cancel it.

    I don't see a problem with the sentence in question. Perhaps a coma or two might make it easier to parse, but it's far from "very poorly" worded. But what the hey, I am no english professor.

    I would think Variety would have some kind of editor to spot any typos. I certainly didn't see any, but I wasn't looking for one.

    I picked up the season 2 DVDs today and there is an insert with the set advertising a companion book coming in Oct that looks interesting.

    The funny thing is that it is worded to look like there are only 3 seasons of the show total...I don't know when it was printed, but it looks like it has been known for a while that they would drop Deadwood.

    God forbid they actually promote the damn new season.

    The fact that "subscriber" is spelled "subcriber " and there is a sentence that states "...earned by the two season aired..." certainly hints to me that some proofreading is required.

    That being said, I wish them luck as I really liked "Deadwood" and will be buying Season 2.

    picked it up at Costco today for $63. Can't wait to go through them all slowly and with a great picture/sound.

    Supp0osedly David Milch is looking at outside financing to take some of the burden off HBO. He wants to do a season 4.

    Thanks HBO, now that you canceled Deadwood the only show I cared about on your network I will be able to cancel your service soon and save a few bucks.

    Big Love is alright, but I would never buy the DVDs or seek out the show after it airs.

    It is one of those shows that is on and good, so I watch it.

    Sorry for the poorly worded post.

    I was just surprised at the number of ‘cancel my subscription’ type posts, either implying or stating directly that HBO was no longer producing work of quality, worth watching (and to be sure, paying for).

    While the production costs of Big Love[]i] are very most certainly lower than Deadwood and many other HBO series, I find it to be a very textured, layered series.

    Enough to give me hope for continued new, original works—and enough to keep paying that extra every month.

    Hasn't Big Love been cancelled too? I read as much on digg.com.

    Well I know that some groups (predictably) have been calling for Big Love’s cancellation even before the series premired.

    I have no idea if it has been, or even it was intended to run more than one season.

    My point was that HBO seems to still be putting out new, original series of some merit and the life or death of Deadwood does not seem (to me) to be sufficient reason to cancel my subscription.
