I know many people will shoot me for saying this, but I, personally, hate the packaging. I know BDs are coated and won't scratch, but I hate it when the bottom of the discs get touched. I'm afraid that some debris could get into the cardboard sleeves and scratch the discs one day. So, I've taken all 13 discs out and put them into slim jewel cases.
But anyways.... I'm about halfway done with the series and so far, I'm pretty happy with the purchase. The only complaint I have is that the show is hard to understand at times. When watching an episode, I find myself only understanding half of what's going on. But I guess that's a good thing since it gives me a reason to watch the series again, thereby giving this set a lot of replay value.
Thanks for the heads up about Best Buy's half-price sale on the Deadwood BDs. I bought the DVDs for each season as they were being released, so the ~$120 retail price of the BDs gave me sticker shock. Deadwood is my all time favorite TV series, though, so when I found out the BDs were available at half-price I jumped all over it..
Although laced with profanity, Milch's language is often poetic. In fact, much of it scans in iambic pentameter. For that reason, I routinely use subtitles when I watch episodes of Deadwood. To me, it's well worth the hassle. Anyway, congratulations on your purchase of this great, great series!
