Dead Time Due To Deadwood
I have a couple of things in the works, but we are fast approaching the time when I retire to the couch and watch really great television so I’ll save them for tomorrow. I don’t watch much TV during the week, but that’s only because all the good shows are on Sundays.
Tonight is the season premier of Deadwood, by far the best show on television today. Two years ago, when I watched the first episode, The Sopranos instantly dropped to second place. It is the ugliness of American history right alongside the convoluted integrity that we like to claim as our heritage. It is the bare knuckles politics of forming a country and the sexist, racist, violent reality from which we were born. What’s not to love about that?
I am going the way of the couch potato tonight, so you’re on your own cocksuckers! If you watch Deadwood you know what I’m saying, if not, you really must check it out. And even though I recently learned that the ratio of “fuck” to “cocksucker” in this series is around 10 to 1, the latter is definitely the standout word that is hard to ignore (or resist using, unfortunately).
