Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
The year is 1876. The location: the Black Hills of South Dakota. In an age of plunder and greed, the richest gold strike in American history draws a throng of restless misfits to an outlaw settlement where everything and everyone has a price. Welcome to Deadwood . . . a hell of a place to make your fortune. Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker, and Keith Carradine lead an ensemble cast in Season 1 of this drama series that focuses on the birth of a frontier town and the power struggle between its just and unjust inhabitants. Deadwood combines fictional and real-life characters in an epic morality tale set in a town comprised primarily of ruthless outlaws and naïve settlers — most of whom are driven by the greed and ambition of the Great American Gold Rush.

Pretty much the best television show ever.
It's a crime this show only lasted three seasons, but those three seasons were glorious. I'd rate the quality of Deadwood over any other show HBO has put out. The greatest strength of the show is its amazing dialogue. It's essentially like taking the language of Shakespeare and infusing it into the Wild West. David Milch is truly a genius. The acting is of the highest degree amongst all the actors, even the ones with smaller roles. Ian McShane is a revelation. The show is certainly not for everyone (be forewarned there is A LOT of swearing), but if you're a fan of movies like Unforgiven or the Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, you can purchase this with extreme confidence. The $2.99 price per episode is a bit steep, but overall buying the whole season on iTunes is cheaper than buying the DVD set. Thumbs up to iTunes for bringing this once of a lifetime show to the masses.
HBO must have dulled faculties...
the only thing that could be better than Deadwood on iTunes would be the four-hour, two-movie conclusion to the show that HBO promised back in '06.
Great American Mythology
Deadwood is a great example of visual storytelling at its best. It provides a unique angle on the universal question of Good vs. Evil, with no clear cut answers. Every character is developed with their flaws and vices in full view. Every aspect of the show adds to the overall quality. David Milch makes poetry out of the Wild West with his mixture of Shakespearian dialogue and more colorful "local" language. Highly recommended.
