as dead as wood

How authentic is the language in "Deadwood" series? The wiki article explains how profanities were handled and transformed in it for a particular reason, but what about its overall linguistic reality? Could someone who used to watch it comment please?

It just struck me as improbable when I heard a prostitute say to a doctor: "I only wish my symptoms would subside."
