'Member Deadwood? The MMC finally wraps up the classic series with our discussion of the anticlimactic, but still great, ending and other various series bests. Plus, we give the fans what they want: exasperated Jon listening to fantasy baseball drivel! Also, five Cruel Masquerades!
We alienate some dummies this week on the podcast, which is rapidly approaching the end of Deadwood. Calamity Jane is praised, and Bullock's bloody death is predicted.
We're so sorry for the audio quality on this one. While editing, we did our best to cut out all the Stranger Things background noise but leave in the tangents you love and the Deadwood analysis you're slightly less excited for. Also, Bryan's peach tree is producing!
The usual crew talks about dreams they have when they're powerless, Doogie Howser, and Malcolm Gladwell, and gets some Deadwood talk in there, too. Some recording issues: there's a period where screams can be heard in the background. No one was being murdered, Stranger Things was being watched downstairs of the recording studio. Time to invest in some egg crates.
Jon, Shane, and Bryan discuss the opening of Deadwood's final season. Jon's still alone in his love of Joanie Stubbs, but we can all agree that Richardson doesn't get enough screen time. Turn him loose on Hearst, and all the town's problems are solved.
After a hiatus, the group gets together and for some reason talks a lot about Methodist history. This episode also features a double dose of Cruel Masquerade, more general confusion form Third Guy Bryan and a tricky game of Bible or Deadwood. Don't forget to like us on Facebook or subscribe on iTunes. Also, give us a 5 star review. We need it.
For what our host Jon considers two episodes not in the top tier of Deadwood, he sure does have a lot to say. Unlike Deadwood, you'll find incredibly civilized discussion about blame - time to ramp up our pod game.
Shane snoozes while Jon and Bryan knock out episodes 7 and 8 of Deadwood Season 2. One bike ride to rule them all. Also, Joanie Stubbs.
Bryan, Jon and Shane get together and wax poetic about the greatest season in television history. Lots explored in these two A level episodes.
