Crowd takes no bull

'Deadwood' preps for season three

Profanity, yes; mechanical bull, no.

Such was the behavioral effect on the aud of Tuesday’s “Deadwood” third-season preem at the Dome and Cabana Club after-party.

There was an elevated level of Shakespearean/Western swearing, although these cursing BevHills cowboys had little interest in riding a mechanical bull.

This was not a crowd that signs waivers without a lawyer being present.

On hand was HBO prexy Carolyn Strauss, who called the show “an incredibly meaty drama that you sit down with a fork and serrated knife and dig into.”

The show’s chief chef, creator David Milch, said the key to doing the show is “letting go of my baggage — what I want. I try to let go of my intentions and let the characters and situations go to whatever fate has in store for them.”
