  1. To call "Deadwood" great television doesn't begin to do it justice.
  2. 100
    Milch's darkly hilarious exploration of the American frontier spirit is back for a third season of twisted human conniving.
  3. 100
    Its scripts - always among the finest on TV - are even stronger this time around.
  4. Like last season, the plots are thick and quick-flying. (Also like last season, the abstruseness can sometimes feel showy.)

    "Deadwood" remains a series like none other.
  6. The dialogue is "Deadwood's" calling card, with its mixture of gutter and Elizabethan grace. It layers Milch's broader, working theme -- the coming-together of various organisms to create a single, functioning one.

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