Monroe County Public Library also has the first two seasons of Deadwood
and has had no complaints. It is very popular.

Carlsbad is a medium-sized public library. We've had Deadwood seasons 1
and 2 for many months with no complaints. It is a very popular series
with our patrons.

I'm wondering how many medium-sized public libraries out there have
purchased (or acquired through donation) the HBO series Deadwood on DVD.
If so, have you had to address many complaints about the profanity?
While there is great critical acclaim for the show (and I'm a fan
myself), nearly every review comments on the extreme language, and I
have visions of a never-ending stream of westerns-loving patrons
registering outrage after popping in the DVD, expecting something like
"Tombstone," "Wyatt Earp," or "Pale Rider."

So I'm curious what other libraries' experiences have been.
Complaint-free? A few here & there? More trouble than it's worth? Feel
free to reply either on- or off-list...

Thanks in advance,
