Which is the best western series of Timothy Olyphant

Timothy Olyphant’s best work is in the HBO series “Deadwood” where he has given one of his best performances by far as ‘Sheriff Seth Bullock’ in my opinion. Where he survives and positions himself in the middle of all the business and politics of the little town.

Solving problems of a widow wanting to go into Gold prospecting, conflict resolving between the two well-established Brothels in the heart of town and the saloon which attracts all sorts of bounty hunters and outlaws. Also maintaining the peace and harmony between the diverse group of people from Mexico and Chinamen in town.
