Hell on Wheels

http://i.imgur.com/TT4we.jpg

Hell on Wheels tells the epic story of post-Civil War America, focusing on a Confederate soldier (Mount) who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who have killed his wife. His journey takes him west to Hell on Wheels, a dangerous, raucous, lawless melting pot of a town that travels with and services the construction of the first transcontinental railroad, an engineering feat unprecedented for its time.

Anybody? I don't really liked westerns but I hear it's not quite western.

Re: Hell on Wheels

"Broadwalk Empire is doing so well - lets try to copy that" is what the network must have been thinking.

Anyway - overdoes the drama at some points but a good show. Definitely worth watching.

Oh and I wouldnt call it a western. Just the main character looks like a stereotypical gunslinger.

Re: Hell on Wheels

I don't see the Boardwalk Empire comparison, sorry!

Cullen Bohannon seems to be a quite the bad ass and for that is enough for me to tune in again next week. It wasn't awesome but definately good, too early to say anything else as we were only just introduced to the characters.

Re: Hell on Wheels

It's not a western as in 'Let's kick some ass in local bars and shoot hafl the city'. I have a weak spot for westerns and with such an amazing intro, they got me already. smile (18 minutes in)

Re: Hell on Wheels

Re: Hell on Wheels

I'm loving this show.... I WANT MORE!!!

At the start i thought it was gonna be some supernatural thing but it's really all about some atrocities that happened during the war.  I wasn't too sure about the cast at the beginning... cause it's freak'n CHIEF O'Brian.  I'm not used to seeing him unless he's on a bridge of a starship... but him ... Common and the lead actor is easily making it a must watch tv show ;-)

Re: Hell on Wheels

hows has this show developed i have the 4 eps downloaded and was waiting for reviews before watching  smile

Re: Hell on Wheels

I like it a lot. smile

Re: Hell on Wheels

thats my sunday watching sorted first 4 eps!
thanks Orlando

Re: Hell on Wheels

Dammit, I did search for that post but search turned nothing. Sorry Orlando.

Confirming it's quite a nice show so far (at ep 5).

Myka : You slept with her didn't you ?
Pete : Well... you... you told me to investigate ok ? So... she's unarmed.

Re: Hell on Wheels

It just keeps getting better and better.

Best oneliner in a long while:

+ show spoiler

Oh I got six bullets, I was just gonna shoot you twice. big_smile

I just love Cullen Bohannon as a character, kind of an antihero type. I hate it when they make the main character of a show too goody-two-shoes.

Re: Hell on Wheels

Gunslinger getting payback with some inspiring dialogue in it and the time setting , I am hooked!
Would've liked to see the cheyenne or any indian in a more peaceful matter seeing as they were kind of the victim, but i guess the white man has gone to far by that time.
The way he got his vision is that right? Did they actually check the ways and rituals? probly not, its tv.
And is this before the battle of lil bighorn? Or after?  cause my history on america sucks
EDIT: Seems like it was before, oh epic battle ahead idd, excellent. :> :>

Re: Hell on Wheels

I cannot be the only one still watching this? This show is still awesome and Cullen Bohannon is one of the biggest bad asses on TV at the moment.

Re: Hell on Wheels

Still watching... still kicking.

Pete : Well... you... you told me to investigate ok ? So... she's unarmed.

Re: Hell on Wheels

First season was very good, but not so much the second season. The writing and plot development does not seem to be at the same level. I've dropped it.

Re: Hell on Wheels

I actually like the second season more, for me it's more structuralized, also great cinematography. I actually care about what happens. smile

Re: Hell on Wheels

I agree with Orlando, the show seems to have a better focus this season. I think the plot development is way better than the first season. It has become more than a simple tale of vengeance.
