This morning I was watching Deadwood; one of the best shows on tv. In one of it's typical moments of casual and outrageous violence, two giants (Dan Dority & Captain Turner) have a royal rumble in Deadwood's thoroughfare. I was laughing at the sounds of porky fists mashing guts and blasting faces. Bone on bone! At the climax, the Captain smashed Dan's head into some rocks, but in an unexpected turn, Dan lifted his hand and clawed out Turner's eye. I was nearly sick on my cheese toastie. But then I thought: 'This is what great television's all about!' I watched it again and laughed.
