Deadwood Complete Series – December 9, 2008

I read the other day that HBO was releasing the “Deadwood Complete Series” on December 9, 2008. The set contains the three seasons of this great. gritty and profanes masterpiece that HBO and creator/writer David Mitch collaborated on before it’s untimely and abrupt ending at the conclusion of it’s third season just when it was hitting it’s stride.  Part of the new package’s scant new bonus features is something called “The Meaning of Endings”narrated by David Mitch. I personally have not heard this portion of the DVD set, but my money is that this is gong to be Mitch trying to  justify abandoning a great series in order to do an unproven and short-lived one (John from Cincinnati.) The set is priced at $179.97 ($125.99  on Amazon.)

As a big fan of Deadwood, and someone that was bewildered by the short-sightedness of it’s cancellation, I have to look at this set and it’s lack of any new material (as well as the omission of Blu-Ray technology) and believe that HBO and Milch are just trying to cash in on the fans that they left hanging in 2006.

What a bunch of cocksuckers!

    Please don’t blame David Milch for Deadwood‘s premature demise.

    I’ve read counter examples to the one furnished by Mr. Beaver, but I am willing to take his word that Milch had intended both shows to be on HBO and was bushwhacked.

    My point about HBO repackaging what fans have already purchased just to make a buck still stands.
