    A Great Western Series

    If you haven't discovered "Hell on Wheels" as of yet, you should make a point of BINGE watching it. It will not disappoint you. If you like westerns and missed them over the past few years, this is the show for you. The characters keep your interest. The stories are true to life as you would expect it to be for the era. The content may not be for younger viewers, but for adults, I HIGHLY recommend it. We have watched the series since it premiered the first show. It has lots of twists, surprises, and characters that you become invested in their story. I bought the first season in this first purchase and will continue to buy all of them as they become available. It is worth the cost. It's worth your time. Again, if you like westerns, or LOVE westerns, this one could be for you. Get your copy and enjoy your viewing. It's hard to just watch one episode. You will find you will want to see all of them and watch the next season.

    Anson Mount plays Cullen Bohanon, a former Confederate soldier who is hunting down the Union regiment who killed his wife and son. On the last leg of his revenge, he finds himself employed for the same railroad as one of his suspects. But the honest labor and relationships begin to take their toll on his plan for justice. A good man must decide whether to rectify the past or help serve the future. Great show. Expect nothing else from AMC.

    Really great western drama, a bit on the graphic/dark side. All characters are well played. Story line is the construction of a railroad to the Rocky Mountains and the merciless efforts to accomplish the task. No holds barred in the realism and although the scenery is less than spectacular, the story line is extremely well written and the scenery is authentic given the nature of the programs setting.

    The first season got my attention. The railroad conflict and the acting was competent and the story flowed well. I am not as interested in tv series as I am in high profile films. Still, this series is well done and I look forward to seeing more of the same. I also have the second season, but as of yet, I have not had a chance to see any of it. Hope the magic continues.

    I'm a very busy person so when I watch any tv it's usually Tv series I'm interested in and buy to watch at my own pace. This show looked interesting so I bought the first 2 seasons and I'm glad I did. It's a great show. Mixes a little history with likable characters and a little violence to keep you on edge.

    Great AMCTV series

    I don't usually watch that many westerns but this story is well thought out for a western about the building of the transcontinental railroad. They picked good actors and actresses to play the characters in this TV series. There is lots of action, indian fights and a growing town. Can't wait for season 2 to come out on DVD.

    It's about time somebody makes a series about something very interesting that happened In America. One thing that never changes in that is greed deceit and deception has the same factor as today's times. At least back then you could take care of it yourself.

    Great historical fiction.

    The building of the transcontinental railroad has more historical politics and difficulties than is taught in classrooms. This series gives a deeper insight into the building of the railroad while also providing great action in a fictional story.
