Well Arz, you can watch this clip but beware of some minor spoilers from season 2, but this is my favorite exchange between Al and Wu.

Wrapped up season one last night. Good finish. Swearengen's obviously the star and the most developed character but the rest of the major principles do an awesome job. I never knew Olyphant could seethe so well. Plus, the beat down of the dad? L'awesome.

^^ Not even Bullock's finest brawl. But I'll let you start the second season...like...the first episode.

"Welcome to fuckin' Deadwood."

Not to spoil it, but Crutch is 100% right. The finest brawls are yet to come.

Dunno what season it is, so I'll try not to spoil but the teenage prostitute and her brother scene is pretty brutal...

So we wrapped up season 3 last night. Apart from the annoyingly annoying subplot with the theater troupe, it was a great season. Shame it ended with so many loose ends, though. They definitely could've had a solid fourth season.

Season 3 is my favorite. George Hearst is one brutal motherfucker. It is a shame that they couldn't even let the Tolliver/Swearengen conflict come to a head for another season (which is where it looked like it was going).

The Hearst plotline was great, and it was a shame they had to end it as quickly as they did. Tolliver/Swearengen was good too, but Swearengen/Hearst was the best rivalry that show had, especially since Bullock and Swearengen were all aligned against Hearst and it still didn't do any good because he was Mr. Corporate and whatnot. Good stuff.

Alan Sepinwall's doing a rewind of season 2. Jim Beaver (Ellsworth) and the China-Man who played Wu pop up in the commentary. Good stuff.

My quite cheap blu-ray box set from Amazon arrived yesterday. I have to say, HBO really knows how to make gorgeous packages for their stuff. Deadwood is by far the most impressive one I've seen; Generation Kill's is also quite impressive and The Wire's, while still rather nice, is a bit less so but still pretty good for a big box set.

I haven't had the chance to watch any of it yet (finishing up season 2 of Sherlock), but I can tell I'm in for something special: one of the "pages" has a picture of Mr. Wu with a quote that simply says "Cocksucka!" And of course Ian McShane, who's just awesome in general and was incredible in Kings.

Another recap. In the comments, the actor who played Mr Wu translates some of what he says to Al and the gang, as well as gives some background on the dialect he picked.
