I'm only on the third episode, but bloody hell. It's ace. I must have avoided for so long because of Lovejoy, and I can't look at Lovejoy's face without thinking of that Reeves and Mortimer sketch where Lovejoy has lines drawn on his face and talks like a Red Indian and says "once, I out oggy raiding on my Spiderman tricycle, and use stick: for shitty-shotty."
But yeah, Deadwood, ace. It has swearing (proper innovative swears and all), men getting smashed in the face with rocks, dudes with funny voices, and hella naked prostitutes. And the acting is (in places) a complete fucking joy and all; makes me wonder why we put up with the likes of that Heroes lot.
I'm way behind the times on this one, aint I?
