    did anyone catch tonight's Deadwood? I thought it was much better than the first...things are starting to come to a head as the antagonistic Al Swearagen tests Seth Bullock. they haven't even scratched the surface with Wild Bill. I'm looking forward to next Sunday's episode.

    I thought it was a pretty tense episode. The guy that runs the Gem sure is one sadistic SOB. I sure didn't need to see that guy holding his meat though *shudder*.

    Where have I seen the guy that runs the inn before?

    I think HBO has another great series, and I don't mind the swearing. There isn't a whole lot more than Six Feet Under - I love that show too but think Nate has a somewhat unrealistically foul mouth [​IMG]

    Loved it! The dialog Swearingen and Bolluck was great. I also love the Doc, he showed he's more than Swearingen's lackey.

    The guy that runs the inn is from the Bob Newhart show where he runs the Inn. He was one of the brothers (darryl and this is my other brother darryl)

    I thought the show took off last night as we could see some storylines start to develop. The Montana vs Swearengen battle should be good.

    The guy playing Swearengen is great.

    I could do with less Calamity jane.

    I think E.B. Farnum (William Sanderson) owns the inn, while Al Swearengen (Ian McShane) manages the inn.

    This episode had a whole lot more of Brad Dourif, which is a good thing.

    Yeah...last night was particularly good. Swearengen is a classic villain. SOOOOOO bad. SOOOO tough.

    Bullock vs. Swearengen is building up well...I just hope they throw down in the finale. I don't want to wait a year.

    I am wondering if Hickock will last this whole season. He has already had two encounters with the man who historically is given credit for killing him.Hickock's time
    in Deadwood is about a month and we seem to be on about day
    5 or 6 time wise. Carradine is great here but pales in relation to Jeff Corey's Hickock portrayal in Little Big Man.
    Best

    I had a question. I was watching Deadwood last night and I noticed there is an actor who has my name Jim Beaver who is in the opening credits but when I went to HBO.com to learn more about him and his character I was surprised to find no mention of him on the characters page. So can anyone tell me why he is in the opening credits and what character does he play?

    For those wondering about Bill's demise:


    Wild Bill sat down for a poker game at Nuttall & Mann's No. 10 saloon. At the table were Carl Mann, owner of the saloon, Captain William R. Massic, a former Missouri River pilot, and Charles Rich, a gambler, gunman, and friend of Wild Bill's. For the first time, he was sitting with his back to the door instead of to a wall. Jack McCall, a 25 year old drifter, shot Wild Bill in the back of the head, to enhance his own reputation. At the time he died, Wild Bill was holding two black aces, two black eights, and the jack of diamonds, now forever called the deadman's hand.

    Deadwood has the potential to be a amazing series! Almost as good as The Shield or the Sopranos before S4!!!!

    I am enjoying this show very much!!

    I thought last nights episode was awesome, just fantastic.

    I didn't realize how much money Seth and his partner(?) have, looking to buy the Lot and soon open up a bank. Also, Seth doesn't take s*** from nobody, he was right there in Al's face; given how much of a badass Al has to be to own that town in a sense(runs the liquor, Woman, AND gambling?).

    thanks for the info, todd...i read somewhere that this show is obviously not straight-ahead historical fact...i'd be interested to hear what is truth and what is not as the season progresses...
