    Did anyone else get Amazon's preview disc with the first episode of Deadwood: Season One? I got mine with Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season Three.

    The preview disc is in 1.78 anamorphic widescreen and DD 5.1.

    And it just whets my appetite for the rest of the set!

    Well, it's more than most TV shows but $70 for 12 episodes/hours is less than $6 an hour. Most 2 hour movies cost more than $12.

    The episode 1 disk was included in my copy of today's New York Times Magazine. Does anyone know if it is uncut?

    Thanks,
    Ted

    I'd be shocked if it wasn't uncut. It'd be more trouble than it was worth for HBO to edit the episode.

    Plus if they edited, it would run about 5 minutes[​IMG]

    This is a blind buy for me, most HBO series are. From what I've heard, the series is great, I'll definitely be using this DVD to establish some credit, lol.

    I recorded all of the Deadwoods to DVD last season and I'm glad I did because the price they're asking is way too high in my opinion. It's a good show though. But another TV Western that I liked even better was Lonesome Dove: The Outlaw Years. You can get those 22 episodes for around $30. Great show, real dark and violent.

    I also tend not to buy HBO series sets because they are way overpriced.

    But, I've had a $50 rebate gift card burning a hole in my wallet for 3 months. I've been saving it specifically for this show.

    The episodes on the set are split up kinda weird. Discs One and Two have two episodes each. Then Discs Three and Four have three episodes each. Disc Five has the last two. And Disc Six has the special features.

    just picked this up. I was really surprised by this show. I thought it would be alright but I was sucked in by episode 2.

    I am going to watch the entire season today and I cannot wait a few more weeks for Season 2.

    What kind of packaging did HBO choose this time? Is it as elaborate as the "Carnivale" set or did they go with their more standard (still beautiful) metallic "Sopranos" and "The Wire" cover?

    It's the elaborate type of packaging.

    It's designed to have a faux leather book cover on the outside. It opens like a book with the actual discs in a case that sits it. That interior part is very similar in feel, look and design to the Carnivale set.

    Not sure if that's the most articulate description of it but I tried.

    Thanks - your description is just fine! All the more reason to look forward to getting this set.
    I have it in an order together with a few other shows though so I'll have to wait two more weeks.

    One can criticize HBO for their pircing but so far I've always felt I've gotten my moneys worth with their sets. Nice packaging is a factor that contributes to that assessment.
