Deadwood really dead wood

So Deadwood is really over. So it goes. This from Cinematical via Kottke via Enrevanche:

I told McShane that as a fan, I felt completely cheated by this move on HBO's part. "You feel cheated? Imagine how I feel!" he replied. "We all do. We all do. It was one of those one-off jobs that you do which has got an extraordinary creative brain behind it, and it kept getting better, and the actors were great. It was a fabulous place to be and work. It was a workshop cum theater cum film. It was an extraordinary time. But everything has to come to an end, babe." So, there you have it.
It's still the best thing I've seen on TV in the last four years. If you haven't seen it, now's a good time to rent all three seasons. And be sure to watch the special features that come on the last disc for Season One.
