#why do they cancel all the great lesbian characters?
HEY YOU! YEAH THAT’S RIGHT YOU! Fan of Rome? Boardwalk Empire? Mad Men? Justified?
Do you like snappy dialog? Shakespearian pacing and lyrical cursing? What about dynamic acting? Diverse and realistic female characters? Vicious and direct historical accuracy? And how about some damn fine art direction to cap it all off?
THEN YOU SHOULD PROBABLY BE WATCHING DEADWOOD.
Well, you should have watched it. When it was on. Deadwood ran for three critically acclaimed seasons on HBO before it was cancelled (much like Rome). Some people argue it was because the high-level writing that didn’t play down to it’s audience. Other’s say it was for the realistic portrayals of the sex-trade and an image of sexuality that didn’t cater to the male-gaze. But no matter what the reason, Deadwood remains one of the most well crafted and beautifully constructed television programs ever.
BUT because of it’s short run, and the lack of online bases when it aired, this awesome show has never really been able to develop the fan community it deserves. So, let’s try and fix that.

Do you have a licence for that face, Detective?
For dat hair rather
This is rare and candid footage, where we see Maura’s true face when she states: “You don’t want to sleep with me”, followed immediately by the moment in which Jane’s brain actually fries in disbelief.
Mechanic Jane was hot
Maura was probably just returning the favour:
It looks like Maura tried something new that Jane didn’t quite appreciate in that second gif.
