New in series TV: Deadwood

deadwoodThe year, 1876. The place, the Black Hills of South Dakota.  A gold rush draws a throng of misfits and outlaws to a lawless mining camp.  Welcome to Deadwood, where historical persons (Bill Hickok, Calamaty Jane) brush shoulders with well-drawn fictional characters, notably Timothy Oliphant (Justified) as a reluctant lawman and  Ian McShane as a conniving saloon keep. Deadwood “provides an alternative view of how the West was won”  (San Jose Mercury).”  Warning: the language is not polite.
