    How can we have come this far without anyone mentioning Ian McShane in Deadwood.  A most incredible actor.  Playing a force of nature.  

    I went to Justified to follow the co-lead Timothy Oliphant of Deadwood, and yes, it is excellent, but Deadwood was sui generis.  The very best historical drama I could not let my grandkids watch. Never realized, until Deadwood,  that the word that won the West was different from the word that won the war.

    Still can’t let my grandkids watch it (Justified)  though.

    Reality ? What has that to do with Opera ?

    •  Well the post (0+ / 0-)

      was about the best thing currently on tv. Deadwood was fantastic. Another great historical era show was Carnivale. I really miss that show.

      Recently there have been some other pretty decent period pieces... Hell On Wheels (I really love this show to), Copper covers post civil war New York city, Boardwalk Empire does a great job on the early years of Atlantic City, then theres Downon Abbey, Vikings. There really is a lot of good stuff out there these days if you can sort through all the garbage.
