"In writing fiction, the more fantastic the tale, the plainer the prose should be. Don't ask your readers to admire your words when you want them to believe your story." - Ben Bova [ more quotes ]

Deadwood - Pilot
Written by David Milch

The year is 1876 and the mining camp of Deadwood (in the Dakota Territory), grows in population from zero in March to over 10,000 in June. And with such a population explosion comes all kinds of prospectors, entrepreneurs and outlaws.

Ex-Montana lawman Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) and his friend Sol Star (John Hawkes) arrive in the newly formed camp of Deadwood to start a hardware business. Also arriving in camp is ex-lawman and gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok (Keith Carradine), his friend Charlie Utter (Dayton Callie) and the colorful Calamity Jane (Robin Weigert). When news of a family being massacred on a road outside Deadwood reaches the group they set out to look for survivors.

"Deadwood" is, in my opinion, the finest program in television history. Every aspect of the show is first rate and everyone involved -- actors, production crew, etc. -- is at the top of their game. You owe it to yourself to watch this show.
