Deadwood

Sean Graney, director of the Hypocrites' production of Pirates of Penzance, sits at attention for:

Deadwood

This Thanksgiving weekend, if I were responsible, I would recommend some active, bonding time with the family—tarrying into the chill and accumulating some rich Chicago culture; however, I will suggest the opposite—watch TV. Please, spend time in a manageable group (or alone), avoid crazed crowds of shoppers, and submit to postprandial somnolence. Watching a quality series in its entirety allows anyone to lose an entire 72 hours and not suffer remorse for dormancy.

Deadwood is my current obsession. With extremely complicated characters speaking elegant, amplified language, Deadwood elevates any physically passive viewer into an impression of betterment without emerging from pajamas.

So relax, eat a lot of good food (maybe take home some veggie burritos and oatmeal shakes from Irazu), and watch Deadwood.
