I didn't expect to like this show, but I studied westward expansion in college and Hell on Wheels shows it an accurate, if fictitious, light. I was shocked they killed off a main character (Lily Bell) in the first season, but it highlighted the absolute evil of the Swede ("I am Norwegian!"). The choice of Common to play Elam Ferguson was genius - who would have thought? And I love the character Eva - she could have easily been a real person, so strong, but having to go through so much. The train going through the ice at he beginning of this season was a great touch - maybe unintentionally funny. Hsve to look that one up!

One of the best out there. Each episode gets better and better. Great acting, excellent scripts. I look forward to each week's adventure.

If you like grit, action, drama... this is the show for you. This show en-globes a variety of emotions and plot twists. This period drama shows the harsh march of the railroad across the United States. I recommend this show for people who like period action dramas.
