This week, the camp says goodbye to William. While Martha and Seth get used to the absence of William, Alma gets used to the idea of life with Ellsworth, Andy gets used to his new job, Cy gets used to playing second fiddle to Al, and Jane gets used to new boots.
In episode 10 of season 2, the camp is dealing with a trauma to a part of its body. William is gravely injured and not likely to recover, and nearly everyone in camp is affected by it. Business must go on, however, as Al enlists Sol and others to help him pull one over on Commissioner Jarry.
The podcast has finally returned after a long time off. In this special episode, Daniel and Harry discuss what kept them away, and what's been happening in the meantime. That means some discussion of the most exciting news of the year, the possibility of two Deadwood movies.
In the first of an unofficial two-parter, the residents of Deadwood find themselves forced to deal with the necessities of life when they'd really rather not. Al has to deal with Miss Isringhausen, Charlie has to deal with Wolcott, and Mose has to deal with himself.
This week, Al has is on a mission to get tounges a-wagging about Montana. Meanwhile, Deadwood ripples with excitement as a bicycle arrives for Tom Nuttall. On the same stagecoach is Mr. Blazanov, telegraph operator, but the really important thing is the bicycle.
This week, we take a break from episode coverage to pay tribute to the late great Powers Boothe. We cover some of his standout performances, from GUYANA TRAGEDY to SOUTHERN COMFORT to SIN CITY, and also discuss his craft, his impact, and his legacy.
After an explosive and disturbing episode the week before, Deadwood turns in a quietly masterful character study. It starts out with one of the most famous speeches in the show's history, Al meets Alma, and of course, E.B. gets left out.
The sixth episode of season 2 is one of the most memorable in the shows run, as Wolcott's sickness shows its true face. Miss Isringhausen also shows her true face, much to Adams' chagrin, but she makes it up to him. Also, Steve finds a novel answer to the indignities visited upon him, and Merrick is cockblocked by doodoo.
Episode 5 of season 2 finds Alma in a very difficult circumstance right from the start. She is soon joined by Jarry, finding himself in his own scary situation. Later, the newly introduced Sam Fields narrowly escapes from between a rock and a hard place. This episode is just full of...complications. Sorry.
In this week's episode, Daniel and Harry must reckon with one of the most physically affecting scenes in TV history, which brings up painful memories from their own lives. Also, we see Petty Alma and Sex Baby Jarry assume their final forms.
The mysterious Mr. W has arrived in Deadwood, and his presence signals a new era for the camp. Al, meanwhile, is incapacitated, throwing the Gem crew into disarray. Also, stay around till the very end for a candid moment with your hosts.
It's the second part of season 2's premiere, and it just might be the fartiest episode of the series! Seth needs to get his gun and badge back, Al wants to get his ability to piss back, Joanie wants her life back, Alma wants her man back, and Sol is glad to have Trixie back.
Season 2 kicks off with a two-part episode, and we're tackling it with a special guest and a jumbo-sized episode! Aaron Reynolds of the University of Houston Honors College, the man who introduced Harry to Deadwood, joins us to see what has changed in Deadwood since last season, and identify the many lies Deadwood's citizens must agree upon to make their society function.
It's the finale of season 1, and what a finale it is. The cavalry has come to town, and as if on queue, blood begins to be shed. There are other notable happenings like the Reverend's suffering finally ending and Seth and Alma's sexual tension finally boiling over, but honestly the most startling revelation might be that Al is perhaps a long-lost Blues Brother. Listen in!
The guys are joined by Gabriel Dieter of fellow Mocking Bird Network podcast Revenge of the World for the penultimate episode of season 1! Alma's dad has shown up, and no one - not even E.B.! - seems to trust his intentions. Also, Leon gets a new job, Jewel gets a new boot, and Al gets several bags of shit plopped on his desk.
In episode 10 of season 1, we get our first proper storyline with the fabulous Mr. Wu. Al has a problem involving two dopeheads, Seth finds himself falling into his old ways, and Reverend Smith makes Daniel and Harry cry.
In episode 9 of season 1, change comes to town. Joanie and Charlie face the prospect of new business ventures, Seth and Al have to take on new responsibilities, and Jane and Reverend Smith stare down life after the plague. As if things couldn't get more complicated, E.B. is named mayor. God help us.
The boys are joined by their very first guest, Houston actor and artist Cris Skelton! They discuss one of the most deeply disturbing scenes in the show's history, perhaps in television history. Also, Alma decides not to go back to New York, while Joanie and Trixie both make big decisions regarding their own futures.
In episode 7 of season 1, Seth returns to Deadwood a changed man. Charlie returns with him after turning Jack McCall over to the authorities, and must recon with the loss of Wild Bill. Meanwhile, 2 kids show up in camp looking for their father, who might not be what they seem. Also, the plague claims an old friend.
Lustful looks, heavy breathing, outthrust chest...it must be Unauthorized Cinnamon! Episode 6 of the first season sees the camp coming together to deal with their first existential threat. Will they feel enough of a sense of civic duty to save the camp from the plague? Wade through this quagmire of piss and bullshit with us!
