All twelve episodes on DVD... the ONLY way to watch a compelling television series. Had heard so much about Deadwood... after an episode or two, I was captivated. The language is very rough and seemingly gratuitous - perhaps the only flaw to the series. The characters and setting, the period in time (1876-1877 Black Hills gold ruch), are all very rich. Made us want to visit Deadwood when we recently visted the Black Hills and Badlands of South Dakota!
