Wasn't Deadwood cancelled though?

It's one of the very few shows I still have every intention of checking out one day, mainly for my love of the genre, but I always enter series that never got to end the way they desired with a bit of trepidation.

Maybe it is if The Wire is too black for you.

Was it cancelled???? I thought that Milch was the one that insisted it end when it ended. If not, I stand corrected about its length, but not about its quality.

Lance, you are right. HBO would not pick up the options for most of the actors, ostensibly canceling the series. Still, for me, pure brilliance.

I thought I remember hearing the creators were upset it was cancelled early and had plans for a while to finish it with a series or feature films or something. I may be wrong though, as I'm hardly an expect on the series, or HBO in general.

No, no, you were right.

Lance, you and your Dad need to watch this series at some point. I'd almost consider it a favor.

don't want to derail this thread, but i'm really excited about the possibilities of both "Flash-Forward" and "V".

Honestly, the only stuff I've watched on TV that I enjoyed enough to warrant any level of praise has been Mad Men, the first 3 seasons of Lost, and the Arrested... maybe.

Oh, and Avatar: The Last Airbender of course. Which is the best thing EVAR created.

I tried watching an episode of True Blood once. Almost made me want to break the TV.

i think it's hilarious. my wife likes it just for the Vampire part, but i have no problem drooling over Sookie. when my wife asks why i'm drooling, i normally just tell her that i had a mild stroke.

I have seen clips of some hot Vampire chick in her undies though. That was probably what convinced me to give that episode a shot.

The CAP!

I'm not speaking to anyone who doesn't have The West Wing on their list again, by the way.
