Here's your chance to vote for the best Deadwood: The Movie quotes from the new HBO movie. There are many to choose from, due to the sharp writing and memorable characters like Seth Bullock, Al Swearengen, and Calamity Jane. Writer David Milch provides all of the powerful - and often profane - dialogue fans have come to expect.

The Deadwood TV show had a short life, running just 36 episodes over the course of three seasons. Nevertheless, it amassed a devoted audience during that time. Additionally, television critics hailed it as one of the best modern programs. It was also a frequent Emmy nominee/winner. When HBO announced that it was not going to continue with the fourth season, outrage ensued online. Now, thirteen years later, the cable network has produced a two-hour movie designed to tie up some loose ends and resolve some of the plot threads. 

Daniel Minahan, who helmed four episodes of the series, returns to direct the movie, which was written by Milch. Reviews have been glowing. Deadwood: The Movie has a Rotten Tomatoes score in the high 90s. The overall consensus is that the film recaptures the magic that made the show popular.
