    Seems like that game would be more satisfying if you chose one of these kids who really freak out about a differing opinion - sometimes they even call you a bigot:evil:

    Throwing a label on someone is easier than actually considering another opinion...:))

    Seriously,
    Westerns don't appeal to me in general, and Deadwood did not grab me. Couldn't get into it, just not a big fan of that time period.

    John from Cincinnati I like. I like the SoCal surfing culture it's set in. I lived in Daytona for a while in my 20's and was part of a trashy beach circle. Don't like to call it Beach Bum, cause I didn't bum anything, but I drove an old rusted out Chevy van, had a cheap beer bar I hung out in. I had no money, but looking back it was the happiest time of my life so far.
    The show is weird, sometimes too weird for me, but I do like it better than Deadwood.

    Yeah after 25 years by a Florida beach I'm over it, but that doesn't have much to do with why that show doesn't work for me.. One episode though - for a show like Deadwood - isn't enough to base a fair opinion..

    I think if you ever have the opportunity to watch it from episode one, you should give it a shot Hoffa. If only for the amazing Ian McShane alone; I've always liked the guy but his performance in Deadwood was still a revelation.

    I checked out your photos CC... it looks like you had an awesome time. I had no idea Dan also played "franks and beans" :) I can't believe I never noticed that. That fight Dan has in the final season was as brutal a scrap as I'd ever watched on film... I was exhausted just watching it.

    Fair enough, I will give it another shot. I would like to start with episode one, and watch the first season in a marathon.

    25 years? Wow, I was only there for 4. I went back to Daytona last month, lots of changes. I'm not really over it yet. I'd like to move back, maybe when I'm older...

    I go back to West Palm maybe once a year and it's changed every time. Feels like some weird mix of over-development and 3rd world..
