Deadwood (+ meme)

I started watching Deadwood Season 1 this week. It's taken me long enough. I remember it being on telly a couple of years ago and Dave and Sasha watching it and telling me it was very good.

I never doubted them as the bits I saw looked fantastic but I try not to watch TV series on TV as the chances are I won't be able to watch them every week so I'll just be late (as usual) and catch them on DVD. This allows me to watch them at my leisure and also not have to wait a week + between episodes when there are cliffhangers :p

Anyway, I'm five episodes in and I can honestly say the series is fantastic. It's the best TV serial I've watched since Firefly. I've already ordered the Season 2 box set in preparation for when I finish Season 1. It's certainly not for the faint-hearted and I also love how the completely 'unexpected' can happen. Certainly one of the events so far (concerning Wild Bill Hickok) completely blindsided me!!!

Plus it has such an amazing cast (although does anyone else think that Seth Bullock looks like Mike Tinney from White Wolf? It was a bit unnerving to start with! :p).

Anyway, fab series. Plus I found out that Andy P had created a meme for it a while ago so I just had to go and complete it :p

You scored as Seth Bullock. You didn't want to be sheriff, but someone had to do it. You wish you didn't have such a high moral compass, because you just want to sit in the background. However, in this town someone needs to step up, and if no one else will, that only leaves you. If evil only needs the good to do nothing, you won't watch from the sidelines. (Seth Bullock is played by Timothy Olyphant)
