It was hard to get past that when I started it. But it is well worth sticking with it in the end.
I stuck with it a full season. Just had no desire to go back to it the next. Due to the profanity.
The profanity of Deadwood actually puts Sopranos to shame!
I thought I'd already been used to the "language," but it didn't take me too long to adapt. (Although I'd heard that some of the "terminology" wasn't really invented, yet, it didn't really detract from my enjoyment of the series.)
For me it was harder to watch starting season two for a couple of different reasons.
a.) They did something to the way the picture was processed, making it look too "muddy."
b.) Despite keeping the profanity, it seemed writers were stupidly trying to "up-class" the dialog.
The whole rest of the series was never really quite as good as that very first episode. I enjoy re-watching that one every so often, for some reason. But I still thought the series was worth sticking with. I even felt like it could've used maybe another half-season or so by the time it was over.
The profanity didn't bother us much, it was the corpse eating hogs that went just a wee bit over the top for us. Just couldn't buy in after those scenes.
Ironically, the corpse-eating-hogs are not all that unusual. Do a Google News Search "corpse eating hogs" and you get numerous stories including those where murderers fed the corpses to pigs.
I remember the uproar over the profanity. Then came the backlash of articles that basically said "That's the way they spoke back then in that area" - apparently with research to back it up.
