Critic Reviews for Deadwood: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (16)

Deadwood is a funny show alright, but that's because, in the unflagging brilliance of its execution, it fulfills its ambition.

Dourif steals every scene he's in, and Weigert finds in Calamity Jane an unusual toughness that makes her more credible than in previous incarnations.

The language, and the characters, will take some getting used to, but get used to them. It's the kind of rich tapestry that rewards repeated viewings.

HBO's extraordinary new Western, Deadwood, is not your father's horse opera and that it stands proudly beside the bleak, unromanticized likes of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven and Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove.

The Wild West as Shakespeare or David Mamet might have seen it.

July 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Once you grow accustomed to the trash talk... the series draws you deeper and deeper into a little world where the law holds no sway and right is trodden in the mud.
