  1. To call "Deadwood" great television doesn't begin to do it justice.
  2. This series is one of a kind.
  3. The language, the acting, the themes - everything in "Deadwood" is good as gold. In TV entertainment terms, maybe even better.
  4. Like last season, the plots are thick and quick-flying. (Also like last season, the abstruseness can sometimes feel showy.)
  5. As it lurches to its conclusion, the politics of "Deadwood" keep growing more dense and colorful, and that magnificent obsession crowds out other primal forces.

    Yes, "Deadwood" was incomprehensible last season. It is incomprehensible this season. Fans will be delighted.

    So gritty I need to take a shower after every episode! Characters and scenery is fabulous. Hope it never turns into a network-type nighttime soap.
