    Closure is needed here. After such a following, a two hour final closure like what “Breaking Bad” did is called for.

    I LOVED this series. It saddened me that it wasn’t renewed and/or David Milch decided not to continue writing the scripts.

  3. Best “western ever made”. Each episode is a masterpiece.

    Actor-Performer in HBO’s Deadwood Pilot Episode had real historical ties to The Real Deadwood

    In the Original Pilot Episode of HBO’s Deadwood… Actor-Performer, Edward Moch, played the role of ‘A Miner’, blending into the aura of Al Swearinton’s Saloon. “I first thought that this was gonna be a Two hour TV movie, but the way the chemestry was blending… this was becoming unique”.
    Having actual Kinfolk that were in The Real Town Deadwood, South Dakota, back in those days, Moch reflected upon what it was like. “I had Kin that lived and died in Deadwood”. From “The Adams Brothers”, who William Adams made a fortune as a merchant and later becoming a Mayor of Deadwood… to James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok, who didn’t. “It was told to me that one day, from My Cousin’s ranch, he saw Deadwood Sheriff, Seth Bullock chasing a desperado across the County line… being he was The County Sheriff, he met up with Bullock, and they both captured the felon… both Bullock and My Cousin became lifelong friends.” Moch’s Cousin was none other than County Sheriff, Theodore Roosevelt.
    Meanwhile on the set of Deadwood… Moch helped out in a scene, where one of the actresses was having a problem doing a scene. Moch was called over to work with her…”The actress did not want to be rudely touched… which was understandable. As we were getting ready to do the scene, I explained to her, what we were going to do… she said OK. The camera was angled in such a way… giving the appearance that we were sort of pressing against one another, when in fact we were not. When the actress heard the Director say “cut” and realized what was done… she was quite surprised at how respectful we were… in exhaltation she said ‘Thank You!!'”
    In spite the cursing, swearing and visual appearances, HBO’s Deadwood was a landmark western of acting and performance.
