Critic Reviews for Deadwood: Season 2

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (14)

Once a week, "Deadwood" is a phenomenal place to visit -- but I wouldn't want to live there.

To Swearengen, the approaching future means the end of his gleefully lawless life; to Deadwood fans, it's possible that that near future means the end of one of the richest dramas on television, with only a smoking bullet hole in its place.

Don't get me wrong. The first season of Deadwood is a cracking bit of telly. But the second? It's taking everything I've got not to stop writing and just start watching it again.

June 11, 2018 | Full Review…

In its second season this gritty frontier drama still boasts the most colorfully eccentric ensemble of any show on TV.

Al may no longer be master of all he surveys, but the smile on his face (such a lovely moment from Ian McShane) is appropriate for the day he's just had - and for the incredible season of television we've just watched.

But this much is true: "Deadwood" is cocksure brilliant.
