It's "Deadwood"-speak week, cretins and miscreants of every stripe! Those with frail temperaments and delicate sensibilities should seek solace elsewheres!
By Heather Havrilesky

Jun. 11, 2006 | Deadwood like me
Welcome, tender cocksuckers and the like, to this weekly ****ing missive, concocted by the foul and narrow mind of an ink-stained wretch who dreams up rambling reports for finks, loafers and sad, sallow ****s, so that they might stay abreast of the latest televised entertainments, whilst perhaps saving themselves the time and concerted ****ing effort of attending to such base and poorly conceived amusements themselves. That's right, my jaw is set with impatience and disgust so yours need not be!

If you require resupply and respite, you stopped at the right ****ing place. However, if you're here to stir up trouble or whine about my disregard for some of the precious entertainments you happen to fancy, maybe you don't value keeping your ****ing guts inside your belly enough. I won't stand for those who trumpet my intentions or herd me like a steer or question my cleanin' up a little yella for my goddamn efforts. I've acted on your commission all along, keeping my eyes on whatever frivolous ****ing tripe I figured you might relish whilst you pursued your preferred activities, and I'm mighty grateful for your ****ing attentions. But I beg you to remember, them that butt into other people's business and make the business of others their own are meddling no-good cocksuckers. I can see to my job the way I'm goddamned able, and that's all I can goddamned do. The gist is, **** yourself.

Dead in the water
If I'm feeling less than my full ****ing self, you can blame the cocksuckers at HBO for recent actions so egregious, they'd give any reasonable man or woman cause to take up arms against them.

For those who've been hunkering down in some hidey hole for the past month or so, let me present the most recent ****ing developments. It seems that, despite the continued assertions by "Deadwood" creator David Milch that he envisioned a tale told in four parts (the third part begins at 9 p.m. Sunday night on HBO), despite the fact that said show could be currently described as the finest, most notable feather in those big-city HBO cocksuckers' hats, despite the general ****ing lack of quality televised entertainments, "Big Love" aside, coming down the pike from HBO since "Six Feet Under" left the air and "The Sopranos" slowed to a crawl, those society people from New York City, who live with their heads up their asses anyway, decided not to renew "Deadwood" for a fourth ****ing season. Gratuitous, hurtful, unnecessary! Lamentable, injurious, downright unthinkable! Shame the **** on you!

It strains credulity. And then, on Monday, the latest news came off the wires that HBO and Milch have reached an agreement to replace the fourth season of "Deadwood" with two two-hour movies instead. As pleased as some may be that the show won't unceremoniously disappear after what looks to be a very promising third season, I personally am not having any of it. I'd punch those cocksuckers in the balls before I'd cup 'em for comfort, them that would pickle their pricks in the ****-brine of frivolities like "Entourage," or moderately intriguing yet disturbingly costly excesses like "Rome," concocted with half the wit and genius that Mr. Milch might bring to the project, armed with half a pint of whiskey in his belly. You do recall that Milch originally intended to pen a tale of ancient Rome, but since the cocksuckers at HBO already had such a tale in the works, our good man refocused his efforts on the old West, much to our benefit. Ironically, HBO's often lethargic "Rome" has emptied the coffers at $85 million for one damn season like some high-priced piece of pussy with an opium habit and, no longer strong in gold, those half-witted rats at HBO turned around and gave "Deadwood" short shrift.

How can the arrogant prick in charge possibly lay claim to a passable mind when he'd shortchange us on one of the most glowing examples of memorable, original, strange, unpredictable, invigorating amusements currently available? A man must put bread on his table, I well understand, but the current course defies ****ing logic. Ratings are ratings, the color is any true entrepreneur's only concern, but cutting this story short when it's so clearly destined to bring great acclaim and good fortune to HBO henceforth is goddamn absurd. Milch had a story to tell in four ****ing seasons, a healthy herd of cocksuckers nationwide are now addicted to said story like the dope fiend is to his concoctions, accolades untold await said tale as it continues to ripen and mature over time like a fine peach, but those short-sighted mules at HBO would still stop Milch short of his full ****ing allotment? The imagination balks. Meanwhile, David Chase makes the most untenable request, be it three episodes this week, five next year, and 10 three years from now, and HBO gives it up like a whore half-drunk on bathtub gin.

Our moment permits interest in one question only: Will we, HBO's until-now-loyal audiences, be more than targets for ass-****ing? Like many fine outspoken sorts before me, I'm raising the general ****ing question, that's all. Let us not forget that subscribing to HBO is not an inexpensive ****ing endeavor, and we hold the purse strings. Personally speaking, I can't with sound mind walk away from HBO's offerings, lest I fail in my duties to my fine readers and in so doing, lose my source of gainful employment. As much as he's her misery, the pimp's a whore's familiar, so even as the fist is raised, he draws her to him.

That said, and while I'm not normally a partisan in territorial rivalries, I'm no bought-out cocksucker either, one who'll lift her skirt to remain in the good graces of a reckless capitalist as forward-looking as a dog next to a plate of unattended gizzards. Thus I'd be remiss if I didn't strongly encourage the rest of you to cancel HBO as soon as the fine third season of "Deadwood" has concluded, so that those big-city ****s might feel their position weakening. And as for those of you who haven't seen a single ****ing segment of said televised spectacle, or you saw an episode a ways back but found it tough to mount that ornery mare mid-stream, I want to strongly encourage you to rent the first season DVD, and then the second. Cast aside any hasty assessments you may have made in the past, and mark my words: This show is not to be ****ing missed.

Once you, too, join the strike against those ghoulish hounds of industry, I promise to alert you to anything of quality that might air, whilst saving you some hard-earned cash that you'd only waste on skin-deep trifles like "Entourage." Certainly "The Wire" and the last eight episodes of "The Sopranos" can't be forsaken, but until those noteworthy amusements once again see the light of day, let's strike a blow to the belly of the beast. To make our voices heard by the bean counters, it's clear we'll have to do more than grab ankle. Those that doubt me suck cock by choice!

*snipped a bunch of unrelated stuff then continued*

Deliriously delicious scoundrels and the like
Although HBO has ****ed our moods up flatter than hammered shit, let us not allow that to dampen our enthusiasm for the ensuing episodes of "Deadwood," for they feature the kind of exquisite storytelling that leaves all those within earshot rapt and hungry for the next mesmerizing ****ing turn of events.

Perhaps the most alluring and provocative character to inhabit the small screen this summer, Al Swearengen (Ian McShane), as charismatic as he is devious, finds himself in cahoots with Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant), and this makes our hearts glad, for rooting against a man as engaging as Swearengen is damn near impossible.

Meanwhile, Hearst (Gerald McRaney) has revealed himself to be that variety of ruthless capitalist who'd slit his own mother's throat if she stood in the way of his ability to secure the color from the bowels of Mother Earth. Even Hearst's most beloved cook seems to loathe the ****ing ground he walks on, yet as a high-profile captain of industry, he remains untouchable, as any harm that came to him would alert various meddling ****ing forces of government to stick their nose into the workings of a town that prides itself on being beholden to no human cocksucker -- or at the very least, a town that struggles, with all its might, to keep the sticky ****ing fingers of outside influences and high-ranking officials and the like out of its goddamn pie.

So Bullock and Swearengen find themselves forging an unlikely pact for the continued sovereignty of Deadwood, even as self-serving cocksuckers like Cy Tolliver (Powers Boothe) sidle up to Hearst and stick their heads so far up his ass they can't see past it to the welfare of the overall ****ing community. Reminds you just a little bit of aforementioned bought-out big-city ****s with an unrelenting eye on the bottom line, don't it?

Hoping for the ****ing best
But the hour grows late and my typing fingers grow weary, dear cocksuckers, so I'll hasten to the end of this missive and skip the intricate details of a show that you should see with your own eyes anyway, and use your own ****ing faculties to assess its obvious worth. Why spoil the main course with my yammering, when you should savor the rich flavors of Milch's stylized stew for yourself? I dare you to find it underdone or overcooked or sloppily assembled in any way, and if you do, and would like to question my judgment or call me nasty things in response, well I guarantee you, I've been called worse by better. And if you inhale and expel pure righteousness, my olfactories are keen to the smell of shit. Based on recent correspondences on the so-called letters page, you're not a lot I want mistaking my intentions. Were you bullied when young and incapable? Now you see wrongs everywhere and bullying you feel called to remedy? Show me the secret grip that proves my sincerity and let's be about our ****ing business. I am a sinner who does not expect forgiveness. But I am not an HBO bigwig with the blood of one of the finest shows in recent television history on my filthy mitts.

It's no accounting for why people do things. These days, our man Milch is developing a pilot for HBO, "John in Cincinnati," a drama about a surfer in California, of all confounded things. Having worked on his deployments and flanking maneuvers with regards to "Deadwood," even going so far as to attempt to raise the sizable pile of gold necessary to see his vision to its rightful conclusion, Milch finally resorted to compromise. No blame should rest with the man for securing a final chapter for his epic tale, but the stalwarts among us will continue to push for a full ****ing slate of 12 episodes and nothing less. If the mind imagines other paths to the purpose, let's hear them. Perhaps, with our concerted and combined ****ing efforts, we'll turn the goddamn tide. In short, one hopes for the best. One perseveres. One reevaluates constantly. One is an asshole if one doesn't.

I didn't realize he was the founder of the Homestake Mine. I guess he's definitely destined to win. That mine is still in operation, BTW. A bit of gold from it resides on my right ring finger.

Deadwood was pretty much completely destroyed on three separate occasions - twice by fire and once by flash flood.

I wouldn't be surprised if Milch doesn't use the fire angle to end the series.

There was a time when Alfred knew everything going on in Deadwood, but now he doesn't even know who owns the big homes on the end of the street and Hearst has more power and money than anyone he has encountered.

I'm wondering if Heart got himself arrested on purpose. He's been one step ahead of everyone else all season.

Had to bring this back up after the STELLAR episode last night.
Al playing Batman, leaping to the aid of Alma.
Dority laying the sitch out for the apoplectic Ellsworth.
Con's boner, that'll have to wait 'til tomorrow evening.
Hearst's spittle and Farnum's inability to wipe it away.
Clench Bullock ready to fold the dinner table in half with his bare hands.
Jewel's beaming pride in a well prepared meal.

Much, much more. . .

Last night's episode was great. Al got the info he wanted and the revenge he wanted. Between Al, Bullock, Mr. Ellsworth, and Aunt Lu, and the newspaper guy there are plenty of people pissed at Hearst right now.

Al did prove one thing last night...kick a man in the nut sack enough, and he will tell you any damn thing you want to know.

Anyone know why Al hates Hawkeye to the point nobody can even say his name?

Man, they just keep building the suspense with this show. I have a feeling next week will only bring us to the edge of the final confrontation, and we will have to wait a year for the final 2 2-hour episodes. Great episode though.

I'm thinking the season is going to end with a huge cliffhanger, making us wait till next years two 2 hour shows.

Wu is bringing the "chinks" so I wonder if Hawkeye will show up with Indians...that would make Al flip out.

Too many story lines to wrap up in 50-60 minutes.

As angry e-mail messages streamed into HBO offices — and the end date for the actors' contracts approached — Mr. Albrecht and Mr. Milch searched for a compromise. Last weekend, Mr. Milch rushed to New York and proposed a final idea. By the end of the meeting they struck a deal: two two-hour final episodes to run next year. Last Sunday night, just after the deal was settled, Mr. Milch said he was "deeply gratified" that the show would return, at least for a farewell bow. "I've always known that the support for this show was not a mile wide," he said. "But it was a fathom deep."

Except that 'The Wire' might in some ways be an even better show.I think The Wire is and always has been a better show. I think it's been the best HBO series all along. Which isn't saying Deadwood or anything else is bad; it's a statement about how f*cking good The Wire is.

Problem is, apparently you and I comprise the audience...

I like The Wire also, and I'm glad there's at least one more season of it. I just don't understand how a show as wildly popular as Deadwood gets cancelled.

Maybe HBO is making a play for those billions of viewers who watch stuff like that on the networks formerly known as WB and UPN. It's like chum in the water. Watch out, CW, the 'BO is coming.

Last I heard, they were going to make two or three two hour specials to close this thing out. Did I miss them, was that just some BS story? Any word at all on the making of more Deadwoods?

I heard the same thing about the specials but they have not been on yet.

This is kind of an interesting quote.

Of reports that he had intended for "Deadwood" to run four seasons, Milch has this to say: "You know, the big thing to keep in mind when you hear those sorts of statements that I had planned on a fourth season on this -- I'm a sociopath. You know, someone asked me, how long do you intend to do 'Deadwood'? And as part of my sociopathology, I say, 'Well, when does my contract run out?' And I realize my contract ran out at the end of four seasons. So I'm thinking, 'How does the kid exert the most leverage in the negotiating package for four seasons?' ...

If they don't start filming the final 4 hours right now, there will never be closure to this series. They will never get the cast together again.

Hmmm? :hmmm: This may never get done. :shake: Time to pull the plug on HBO. I will renew in the event they do make the final two shows, at least for a few weeks. As of now, I pay for it and watch it about once every two months. Bad math..........

Thank you for your continued interest in the HBO original series, Deadwood. Mr. Plepler has asked that I reply on his behalf to your forceful e-mail.

As you are obviously aware, what has made HBO home to so many landmark original series and movies is our continued willingness to give creative talents like David Chase (The Sopranos), Alan Ball (Six Feet Under), and Deadwood’s David Milch the creative latitude to see how far they can push the boundaries of television entertainment.

In the case of Mr. Milch, this meant also giving him the opportunity to put Deadwood aside in order to explore a new concept he had in mind and which viewers have been introduced to as John from Cincinnati. At this time, Mr. Milch intends to re-focus his energies on the movies which will conclude the Deadwood saga once he has completed work on the first season of John.

In the meantime, we hope you will find, along with John from Cincinnati, many other new programs on our upcoming schedules that will pique your interest and continue to show HBO as the best place to find innovative and groundbreaking TV entertainment. Thank you, again, for your interest in our service.

Sincerely,
Bill Mesce
Manager,
HBO Consumer Affairs

I really wish they had slated a time to finish Deadwood before they let everyone go their separate ways. The way his career is going right now, I bet Timothy Olyphant could be booked for years. Especially if Hitman turns out to be a good movie.
