Advertisements I happened to channel surf past the first episode of Deadwood starting a new run on HBOZ HD. Gawd did it look great in HD! What incredible cinematography. I missed that all when I first saw it in SD...like when they first show the view looking down on Deadwood from up on the hills in the wagon train with Wild Bill and Jane. I set a SP. The run is up to the second episode. I wish they would rerun the first ep because I didn't get chance to see it again in its entirety. I'm also catching plot points that seemed to fly by on the first viewing. What great writing and what a fast pace setting up the characters right away. The acting of the whole ensemble is simply superb. Like: from the first scene (they repeat) Seth Bullock tells the doomed prisoner that he's going to Deadwood to start a hardware business. I missed why Swearington doesn't trust Bullock enough to sell him the lot. And I even own Deadwood in regular SD DVD. This is definitely one of the greatest series ever. I think with Deadwood and The Wire I owe HBO to be sub for life.
