Thanks for watching along with us, we’ve loved having you all along for the experience.

Bald Move TV – Deadwood: The Movie (2019)

Jim and I have come to Deadwood at long last, to behold it in movie form.

We talk about our experiences with the show, how Justified informs our thoughts on Deadwood and vice versa, Milch’s thoughts on mortality, and how amazingly the movie gave equal closure and tribute to it’s legion of incredible characters.
