I loved Deadwood. I think I watched all three seasons in a matter of two weeks, or maybe less. Last summer, I was excited to see a David Milch follow up with John From Cincinnati. I’m not even going to pretend that it was as good as Deadwood. Few shows could be. Most critics were less than enthused by the spirituality and surfing combination and found the mystical Buddha, Jesus flavored surfer a bit too much. Despite a plodding narrative, I still found what Milch was getting at to be terribly interesting. As is sometimes the case, a creators ideas about a show don’t always translate. However, I did enjoy his loyalty in recasting a couple of great Deadwood characters for his new series. The DVD of the first season will be available on Tuesday and at least one critic is giving the series some favorable attention. Here is one of the few enthusiastic reviews from “Moriarity’s One Thing I Love Today” over at Ain’t It Cool News.
