Glad it's finally happening and getting a proper ending to the series.

 

HBO has been showing the series and watching it again.  Forgot how much fun the first season was.  Al is still one of my fav TV characters.

Please someone tell me they made a mistake and aren't making a movie and instead decided to do 3 more full seasons.

I still don't believe it's real. 

I’m watching it now. It might actually be real.

It was great. 

 

Its very much much in the vein of the storytelling the series did. More based on personal character interaction than actual long form storytelling. It was amazing to see all these characters on screen.

 

i would have liked to see more of some characters, like Dan, but overall I enjoyed it. The ending was bittersweet. I really liked it.

Haha I still don't believe it!

 

My wife has never seen the show and it's been awhile for me, so we'll be re-watching the show first in the next week or two and then watching the film. Can't wait!

I might end up rewatching the series this summer. I had forgotten just how much fun it is to be in this world with these characters.

Saw it tonight and honestly a bit disappointed, felt more like a slightly long mediocre episode of the show than Deadwood THE MOVIE. I think the main issue was trying to give so many characters screen time they didn't leave enough time for any of the stories or characters to really flesh out, Jane probably gets the best conclusion. Al goes from being the power player in the series that everything truly revolves around to just a bystander in the movie.

It did what deadwood does best, character interaction. It was never great at long form storytelling.

 

a longer deadwood episode is what i wanted though, so I understand how expecting otherwise might be disappointing. Actually, the show runner said a long episode was his goal. 

 

It was fun, not great. And the resolution with Hearst seemed rushed. Like, why didn’t you arrest him before the auction, Bullock?

Also, I don’t expect it to change your mind, but Al’s impotence in this movie is literally a stand in for Milch, the creator, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s.

Yeah, David Milch is 74, has stated he has bipolar disorder, has had a heart condition since the 1990's, and was diagnosed with Alheimer's disease in 2015 right before he started work on the Deadwood movie. I unfortunately think he won't be with us too much longer. :(

Am I the only one who felt like it was an uninspired class reunion sort of Deadwood episode, top-heavy with flashbacks (is there anyone watching who really needs that many reminders), and woefully short of the character depth and beautifully profane patois that made Deadwood what it was originally?

 

The movie/event was about ten years too late; I wouldn't say it shouldn't have been made or anything, but (unlike the series) I doubt I'll ever feel an inclination to watch it again.

I understand that opinion, but a reunion is really what I wanted. I just wanted to see these characters again, and where they were in life. I got that, I’m happy with it. I didn’t love the movie, but I liked it.
