    It's also available on Amazon Prime, for those who don't have HBOGo.

    In anticipation of a 2019 release....I've started re-watching the entire series. I'm watching it now with subtitles and I'm catching way more than I originally did!

    Kind of a side note this was announced right as I started to foster a cat who was pregnant. In celebration of the movie I named the momma Trixie and the babies Jane, Jewel, Al, Alma, Dolly and Mr. Wu. Jane and Jewel were the last to be adopted last week. :D

    So I'm finally watching the series (after years of certain people on this forum yelling at me to do so). I'm almost through season 3 and I'm already sad I'm almost through it. I'm excited about the movie but like everyone in this thread, would have loved to have more of the show itself too!

    If you ever want to be angry enough to kill someone, then follow this show with "John from Cincinnati"; the show that the creator stopped Deadwood so he can concentrate on making.

    I remember the show when it was on and how stupid I thought it looked. Never watched it and don't plan on it now with this info!

    Also in the new promo for the movie, Olyphant looks like Kurt Russell in Tombstone with that mustache!

    Watched Deadwood again last month for the first time since it aired. Can’t tell you how many times I skipped backward to repeat and savor some perfect piece of dialogue.

    Some of the Swearingen soliloquies I had to listen to 2 or 3 times to fully appreciate them before moving on.

    Did not get caught up in time! I was so close. I just finished the series 5 minutes ago. I skimmed the series finale thread because I was convinced I missed something because that was less than a satisfying ending. I see talk way back then of a movie. Have y'all been waiting all this time for this?? Can't wait to watch it tomorrow!!!

    If a mod can add "*spoilers*" to the title, we can keep using this thread to discuss it.

    That was great. Shakespeare in South Dakota. The Bard in the Badlands. I haven't watched a single episode since the finale aired in August 2006. But it felt like going home. Took a few minutes to warm up, then it was like we never left.

    Watch it! Now!

    It was a fast 2 hours. And surprisingly enjoyable.

    I only say surprisingly because I really expected my 13 year hiatus to make watching this movie difficult. But as I said, it took a few minutes to get its groove, and then it was old home week.

    I didn't remember that much of how the 3rd season had ended, short of being disappointed that it had ended pretty much on a cliff-hanger, or at least with plenty of tension left and concern over what was going to happen to everyone in the time since.

    I'd still like to have known what happened in the interceding years, but the story that unfolded in the movie was good. It gave us back all of the major players (outside of Powers Booth who had passed away since) and let us at least briefly catch up and quickly figure out how they would all fit into the story that was unfolding.

    The movie certainly felt a lot like the series. The crew that was involved did a great job bringing back the set (which had been lost/destroyed along the way) and giving us back that Deadwood feel.

    I would admit that I was still very curious of just how close to real events the events of the movie were. I know the series had some basis in fact, but was also not exactly based on fact. Regardless, it was entertaining all along. I wish that I had found something else on HBO that I liked nearly as much in the years since. It had been a while since I went out of my way to watch something on HBO (never got into Game of Thrones, and while I probably would have enjoyed Veep, never cared about it. Loved Curb, but with it going so long between seasons, I lost interest in it along the way. Leaving me with, uh, not all that much to look for on HBO) This movie was a reminder, to me, of just how good HBO had been/could be.
