NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Based on a mixture of historical places, persons and events of Deadwood, South Dakota, as well as fictional ones invented for the show, Deadwood follows the corruption and intrigue in a new and lawless gold-mining camp. Real-life characters include Wild Bill Hickock, "Calamity" Jane Cannery, Seth Bullock, and Al Swearengen. Other than mining, the town's business is sin: drinking, gambling, drugs, prostitution, murder, and corruption of every stripe.

Deadwood... a hell of a place to make your fortune.
