Trivia

The real Wyatt and Morgan Earp arrived in Deadwood in Fall of 1876 in search of making their fortune. Once they arrived, Morgan observed Deadwood was too overrun with prospectors, miners, promoters and fortune hunters so he left before winter. Wyatt stayed and ran timber because there was a shortage of fuel and he was able to charge a high premium for a profit. Once spring came in 1877, Wyatt tried his luck looking for gold before he realized all likely looking gold claims have already been staked. It was said Wyatt finally left after Seth Bullock and he didn't see eye to eye on a matter. See more »

One of the best...minor spoilers
18 November 2014 | by mulambo-818-596454See all my reviews

Just a quick review on this one. Seeing Al not knowing what to do, Hurst slowly taking over the camp, Cy slowly losing more and more power, Jane and Jonie connecting and Bullock being loyal to the newly arrived Earp boys is a delight and one of my favorite Episodes. The ending scene with Al singing alone in the Gem just make this one. I know its nearly coming to an end, and this makes me sad because i really liked that show seeing it the first time at 2014 and not being a western fan. As always i find Timothy Olifant extremely...stiff, shall we say, but even he could convince me this time. Seeing Al alias Ian Mcshane not knowing what to do kills me, but gives a new perspective on his character as well.
