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.

Jun 8, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 13, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Jun 7, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 25, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Jun 8, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

At times beyond gritty in a "You've got to be kidding" sort of way, "Deadwood" will never be everyone's cup of tea, but it stands as one of HBO's most fully realized dramas since "The Sopranos" and exhibits no signs of fading in the second leg of its run.

Top Critic

Watching this show is such a disgusting,off-putting experience that you can be forgiven for wanting to take a shower after it 's over...

Jun 8, 2018 | Full Review…

And yet it's all kind of pleasingly thematic, alternately gritty and funny and caked with moral decay.

Jun 8, 2018 | Full Review…

As much as any other Western town in any other Western, Deadwood... seems really to exist, so vivid are the characters and so rich the texture.
