I remember reading something about the profanity and found this:

I read that back in the days of the "real" Deadwood of the 1870s, people were very foul-mouthed, especially Jane - but the words they used were very tame by modern standards. Apparently they shot some scenes using more authentic words from the period and it was laughable, so they opted to use modern swear words to convey to the "modern" audience how foul-mouthed the people were back then.


Deadwood - what's with all the f***ing swearing???

Al Swearengen: Yeah, glad I taught you that fuckin' word.

We just finished this series this weekend. Miss it already. Very Shakespearean-like.

I also wonder how many times they said "Swedgin" in the course of this show?

Those cocksuckers from Yankton need to give Al his own prequel spinoff.

Is there a separate breakdown for "San Fran-Cis-Co Cocksucka" or are all cocksuckas lumped in as one?

So I never got around to watching Deadwood and I am just gettting around to it.

Now I can weave a tapestry of profanity second to few.....but HOLY SHIT!!! This show brings profanity to a new level. There was an episode where CU .... next Tuesday was said like 5 times in 18 seconds.

I am four episodes in and all I have to say is .... well ... fuck. Smile

Great actors, all. Enjoying it so far and I really like Ian McShane and he is a masterpiece as Al Swearengen. Would have liked more Timothy Olmundson as I like him, too bad he takes a face plant so early.

Brad Dourf is GREAT as the doctor.

Anyway, I will let you cocksuckers get back to the fucking thread at hand. Smile

As it stands now, all the cocksuckers are just lumped together.

In order to study this further, a government grant would be required.

And remarkably, it has a ZFG of -1,127.

As a series, well fuck... fucking great, great fucking, filled with fucks not giving fucks about fuckers fucking awesome fucking performances.

Well, fuck me! I fucking could have been a fucking writer for fucking Deadwood!


In truth, the profanity was off putting at first, but the early performances of Robin Weigert, John Hawkes (one of the most under recognized actors on the series), and Jim Beaver sucked me into the series.

Redneck Shakespeare at its finest, and that by no means is an insult.

HBO should have let them finish out the show.

I ran across John Wick 2 last night while the wife and I were watching TV and Ian McShane is in it. I said look, it's Swedgin! I do miss that show.

Sometimes I'll laugh to myself when I hear someone ask who? I'll start running through that classic scene in my head.

Yeah, he was solid. That clip is from the pilot episode. I love the dialogue.

Ellsworth: (To Al) Now, with that Limey damn accent of yours, are these rumors true that you're descended from the British nobility?

Al: I'm descended from all them cocksuckers.

Ellsworth: (Raises his glass to Al) Well here's to you, your majesty. I'll tell you what. I may a fucked my life up flatter than hammered shit, but I stand here before you today beholden to no human cocksucker. And workin' a payin' fuckin' gold claim. And not the U.S. government sayin' I'm tresspassin' or the savage fuckin' red man himself or any of these limber dick cocksuckers passin' themselves off as prospectors had better try and stop me.

Al: They better not try it in here.

Ellsworth: Goddamn it, Swearengen, I don't trust you as far as I can throw ya, but I enjoy the way you lie.

Al: Thank you, my good man.

Ellsworth: You're welcome! You conniving, heavy thumbed motherfucker!

I'm sorry. Is this supposed to be entertaining? I Find excessive profanity to be a marked lack of creative dialog and story telling.

I'm not a prude, but when cussing becomes the raison d'etre for a show, it's already lost me as a viewer.

I tried Deadwood. It was stillborn to me.




You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

No cussing in 1876 during the Black Hills gold rush?

Well ya know what they say, in life you have to do a lot of things you don’t fucking want to do. Many times, that’s what the fuck life is… one vile fucking task after another.
