Did you ever watch Treme?
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I didn't.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

If you at all appreciate New Orleans culture, it is fantastic. The show is very character based and there's not much plot. It's mostly a vibe.

Excellent acting, especially Wendell Pierce, Khandi Alexander and Kim Dickens.

I'm cool with character-driven stuff.  I just think Season 3 of Deadwood doesn't rise to that description.  The characters were all set out in their various spaces, and no one ever moved, developed or expanded out of where they were placed at the start.  Except for right at the end when everyone did exactly what they have never done which is to just shrug and walk away.
