Deadwood was one of the most popular shows on HBO and with good reason, it was one of the most compelling shows on TV at the time. The lives of the people who chose to live in the lawless South Dakota settlement of Deadwood were just damn interesting to watch and even the villains gained sympathy over time from the rabid fan-base, thanks, both to excellent writing and brilliant performances from the cast. So it's little wonder that when the show was canceled after just three seasons back in 2006 the fans were very vocal about their disappointment, especially as the show had left so many loose ends untied.
In general I hate the idea of rebooting or remaking a classic movie. They very rarely are as good as the original and come across as a lazily made cash grab which is exactly what they usually are. I mean if a movie is considered to be a timeless classic, why else would Hollywood feel the need to revisit that story? Take Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes for example. Did anybody working on this movie really believe they were producing something special? I highly doubt it.
