Deadwood: Season 3

I enjoyed the third season a lot less than the first two, the things that were minor irritations in season 2 continued to grow throughout the third. There are so many threads going on that very few feel as if they were given fair treatment and many characters almost completely disappear. The introduction of the theatre and actors was a particular strange choice I felt.

The big plot of the season was interesting and could easily have carried all 12 episodes. The tension of the arc develops very nicely although I’m not sure about the resolution of the story (or lack there-of).

The good is still good – acting, comedy, chemistry, script – all superb. But I feel the unnecessarily complicated plot let them down.
