Becoming obvious we're not in Kansas anymore
24 December 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Overall this series is one of the most perfect little gems ever to hit the small screen.

What I especially like is the way, in Season 1, the viewer is hooked with elements that initially seem to follow the "traditional" western (including an unforgettable guest spot by Carradine as Wild Bill) .... only to gently turn the tables as the story gracefully unfolds.

The brilliant Ian McShane keeps showing layers to his character, like an onion being peeled from episode to episode. And, in the doing, just gets better and better.

In this episode, there is very little action; but by now even the most truculent viewer is beginning to grasp that DEADWOOD has less to do with the wild west, and more to do with human nature, than even a college level Psych course.

Hypnotic.
