this is a really good tv series and it’s one that a few different people have called one of the best of all time. the acting is great, the look is great, the sets and costumes are all great, the production is great, the writing is great. that said, it’s not a series that captures me in the same way that seinfeld or breaking bad do. there’s just something missing from it that would propel it into the discussion of my favorite tv series of all-time. then again, maybe season three will take it to another level.
i love the history of the whole thing. the mixing of truth and fiction. the dueling powers of tolliver, swearengen, and hearst. the push and pull of progress and power and the law and statehood. these are all interesting. the colorful characters are funny, telling of the time, and interesting. great series so far.Watched on TV
