Out of the Blue

After completing our re-watch of Deadwood, we finally got to view the new Deadwood movie. It's hard to believe my own reaction, but the series itself was even better than I remember, which says a lot for what I've long considered the best show of all time. The movie probably doesn't earn that kind of lofty accolade from me, but it was still a tremendous experience. It offered some much-needed closure and a glorious chance to revisit the setting and all those beloved characters that became so fully formed over the show's 36 episodes. Hoping this project would get made was a rollercoaster of ups and downs that spanned years, and I am still shocked but extremely grateful it finally happened.

I just watched the Deadwood movie a few days ago and, while I enjoyed it quite a bit, I was a bit underwhelmed. The story wasn't very exciting and ends kind of abruptly, but I understand that there's only so much they can cram into a 2 hour movie. I would have liked to see them do one last season, even a condensed season of 5 episodes or so. Still, great writing as usual and it was nice seeing all of my favorite characters again (minus Cy... too bad).
