Jim B., the last episode of Deadwood was terrific, especially William Sanderson. "Wild Bill" with Jeff Bridges is one of those movies I always keep on if I come across it. The other night I tuned in "Calamity Jane" with Doris Day. Watched about 20 minutes of it. It presented a slightly different vision of Deadwood.
