I thought I'd made my peace with Deadwood being over. It ended two years ago and I was devastated by the unanswered questions and potential material still left to cover. (How the hell is the town going to change with Hearst gone, but with a new sheriff in town who doesn't want the job? Will Saul suck it up and marry Trixie already, or will he wuss out for his political gains?) I gave up on the long-promised TV movies a year ago when Al Swearengen told me that it was dead as a doornail. I was heartbroken. However, time has healed the gaping wounds that pained me more than Swearengen's knife twisting in a hooker. And while there is little else that comes close to this amazingly written and crafted show, I've learned to go on with my life. Mostly.
But now, genius TV creator David Milch, is going to be revealing what would have happened if the little messed up community had lived to see another day. There's a catch. Of course. The details are going to be unveiled as a special bonus feature on the Deadwood: The Complete Series box set. Which is wonderful, for those of you who didn't shell out the large sums of cash for the individual seasons as they were released. Instead if you, like me, already laid out close to 200 bucks, you are going to have to shell out another $180 for this complete series set.
This happens all the time in the DVD industry, I know. There's always some feature/extra/casing that I end up being envious of, which makes me fork over the extra cash and then bestow the previous DVD acquisitions upon a lucky friend (Oh, Rambaldi box, you got me good!) [Editor's Note: The Rambaldi box is worth twice what you paid for it and then some! -- Mindy Monez] But this. This is important. This is more than just a sleek case and some random features. This is resolution. From the horse's mouth. And while I realize it is probably the scenario that makes the most sense, and it is the best forum for Milch to release the details, it still stinks, unless you've got George Hearst bucks to fund your TV addiction, which I do not.
The set comes out on Dec. 9th. I'm adding it to my wish list now, hoping that some kind person will want to buy me a show filled with profanity, sex and violence for the holidays, just so I can get some closure and really move on with my life this time.
Will you be adding to your wish list? Or just waiting until I watch it and share my expensive newfound knowledge, ya co*cks#c*ers?
