Reasons why "Deadwood" might just be the greatest show of all time

1. There's frontal female nudity and repeated hog and chicken butchery in the opening credits of every episode.

2. The dialogue of any given episode contains at least seven hundred uses of the words "cocksucker" and "fucking", shattering the previous record for fucks-per-minute held by Raymond Huffman of San Francisco, CA.

3. An ongoing subplot of the show involves a Chinese man who takes money from the townsfolk to dispose of corpses by feeding them to his pigs.

4. William "Larry" Sanderson plays the hotelier-mayor of deadwood, who talks like a hillbilly version of William Wordsworth.

5. Drunk-ass Calamity Jane.

Okay, maybe it's not the greatest show of all time. But man, it's got a lotta pep for such a depressing show. And what other television program has had the artistic vision to show us a middle-aged man, his face hamburgered by a savage beating, having a thumb stuck up his ass for like ten minutes, followed by the same character giving an endless pompous soliloquy while being fellated by the owner of said thumb? I mean, other than "Touched By an Angel"?
