    In HoW the cavalry is press-ganged into helping the railroad tycoons get rich with nothing to show for themselves for their often fatal efforts, and as clearly portayed in the series, are very tired of all the politics on all sides.
    Those are good points. It looks like the main cavalryman is in some scenes from upcoming episodes, so maybe he might become a minor character and get some development.

    That Chinese dude sure used to have me in stitches when he started cussin' "Sweaggy" out. "Sweaggy, yooou suckyrocky!" Too funny.
    I was sad when Deadwood ended.

    Great to see Virginia Madsen on the show. She has always been on my list beautiful women I enjoy seeing on film or tv.

    I am a fan, and am looking forward to this show coming back. Colm Meaney is outstanding in anything.
