Default Deadwood HBO best HBO show ever?

While I love Game of Thrones, Deadwood is without a doubt the best HBO show ever. Swearengen and Wu are my favorite characters. Thoughts.

It's a personal favorite of mine, but HBO did put out some other great series until Netflix and others began competing with them.

Simply YES.
Was in on the premier
David Milch = genius
it was a different time then HBO OWNED original programming of the sort and did some fantastic work
Deadwood was niche programming aimed at the few with the capacity to get it.
Much much more complicated than it would appear to the masses

I have a hard time choosing between The Sopranos and Deadwood. I guess I would rather be a cowboy than a mafia made man....

Have not watched Deadwood. Between Sapranos and GOT it is a no brainer - hands down - GOT and I thought they would never top Sapranos. Breaking Bad - AMC would figure in their somewhere but still not above GOT imo.

Oops, I have to change my answer because I forgot about Sex And The City. So my list is:

1) Sex And The City
2) Deadwood/The Wire/Sopranos

Soprano's and The Wire are a tie for me.

Deadwood was entertaining but not even close to #1 for me. If there was an award for “cussing” high marks in that category but occasionally over done, as in swearing just for the sake of swearing.....

I started watching the Deadwood series again last week and it's better than 95% of the current programs on TV.

Yeah. There was definitely no profanity in an old west whorehouse and dead end town.

Swearengen is my favorite character of any show ever.
