Deadwood - "I Am Not The Fine Man You Take Me For" - 6/18/06


"I Am Not The Fine Man You Take Me For"
Spoiler:
A cryptic note delivered by Captain Turner tips off Swearengen to another bloody incident at the Gem; later, Hearst makes his intentions known in a more straightforward message. While Jane finds a captive audience for her oratory skills, the candidates for mayor and sheriff aren't as fortunate. Alma's health raises the issue of Sofia's stewardship; newly reformed Andy Cramed pays an unexpected visit to Tolliver, with a different agenda and outcome.

Shit! That Captain fellow is sure an unlikeable guy. Al must have something up his sleave...

But I'm still curious why they wouldn't have just put one between Hurst's eyes a long time ago?

Why does this show end. I could watch it 24 hours a day. I think the only reason they haven't put one between Hearst's eyes is that even though there is no law, you don't just go up and shoot someone like him. He has powerful friends, and even though he dies, you're bound to go with him.

Besides do you see any sniper rifles around? You have to get pretty close, and the man doesn't walk around without guards.

Hearst was one of the wealthiest men west of the Mississippi, killing him would not be a wise thing.

Half? You're way ahead of me then.

Why was Major Dad tipping off Al about the bar set-up?

Seeing Al get manhandled was pretty darn unsettling.
Spoiler:
Did he lose a finger or two? Or just get them crushed?


Major Dad is shaping up to be the scariest guy ever to ever hit the camp. And that’s really saying something.

I have a feeling the Captain may meet the wrong end of Al's blade soon.

How ironic is it that Al's the one holding Bullock back now?

No kidding - he's giving Al a run for his money.

Is it just the dense/complex language? I figured you'd be a pro at that by this point.

I have no idea if this pseudo-Shakespearean-gutter-filth dialog style is historically accurate or not, but it sure gives the actors alot to work with. Can't say when I've enjoyed performances like these, or just whelped with joy because of the way someone says something. Gotta say I dig the dialog more than any since Sorkin's prime.

"Could you have been born Richardson, and not egg hatched as I have always assumed?"

The scenes with Doc Cochran and Trixie, first when she was spread eagle while they were adjusting the mirrors for light and then arguing during the procedure, were hilarious.

And I love Richardson's grammar, "My father didn't liked me."

What is up with Cy and the bible? Is he finding Jesus or was it his last refuge as a dying man?

I think it's all a ploy. He was obviously faking how badly he felt.

Pretty much. I have no problem understanding the more colorful metaphors.

I actually thought this episode wasn't confusing at all. The premiere had me a little lost, especially after that hiatus, but this one flew right by. I think the gist of it is Swearengen is trying to avoid the camp and him becoming Hearst's bitch, and Hearst is used to making everyone his bitch.

Becasue he wanted it to appear as a gesture of good will and to show Al things will go better for him if they work together. That was the whole talk of consolidation was about. He wants Al to help him take over Alma's land.

"Farnum, twice measured. Star, once cut." Much too clever for EB. And he throws in a jab about big noses.

I liked the short scene with Charlie Utter setting Joanie straight on her feelings.

Spoiler:
I also thought it looked pretty certain that Al had a finger cut off since the hammer had a sharpened edge.


Wow! What an episode.

Actually, I'm not counting them. I don't have that much free time.

I linked a site in the premier thread that counts them.

So Alma wants Bullock to have custody over the girl. And her husband is pissed because he loves the girl like his own daughter. Bullock hasn't accepted this offer yet and might not.

Do I have that situation correct? Can someone explain the deal with the house?
