I saw the first episode (of season 2) and enjoyed it.....I found myself wanting more time given to Cullen with the outlaw Confederate gang....there were some interesting dynamics and an intriguing backstory there. I have a feeling that Durant will get Bohannon pardoned for his crimes in return for resuming his role as railway foreman...which is fine....I just wanted to see more of Cullen with his former Confederate brothers-in-arms and how he negotiated that outlaw lifestyle with his own moral code.

Looking forward to episode 2 tomorrow night! (August 19)

Hope everyone is enjoying the second season of Hell on Wheels thus far....it has been pretty epic!

I written about the very effective use of music at the end of episode 2 (in Season Two), for those interested:

I thought this last episode was pretty good.  Far better than the first 2 episodes imo.  It looks like it could get pretty interesting as the season progresses.

And yeah, the music has been good so far.

For those interested in the wider backdrop/history to the period in which Hell on Wheels is set, AMC is now screening the acclaimed Into the West mini-series for six weeks - each episode runs for two hours and leads right into the current season of Hell on Wheels. I have posted about it on my blog:

FYI....for those interested....AMC is running a mid-season marathon of season two's episodes thus far (i.e. 1 to 5) this Saturday, Sept.15th at 1pm (EST)....a nice opportunity to catch up or re-watch prior to the new episode on Sunday night....have posted about it at this link:

This week's episode of Into the West (the epic historical series that AMC is currently screening prior to each week's episode of Hell on Wheels) features the transcontinental railroad and is in fact titled, "Hell on Wheels".  ;) A perfect lead-in for episode 7 of HoW!

Here is a post with further info for those interested:

I haven't watched the new episode yet, but I have been loving the season so far.  It has been way better than the first season was.  Hopefully the 3rd season will be even better and more action packed.

I just got done watching it today. OMG it was shockingly good. One thing:

Show content for Hiden:
Lily's death took me by surprise.

Any word if AMC renewed this for a 3rd season?

I watched the pilot. Didn't really get into it. I kept comparing it to Deadwood, which IMO is one of the best shows ever, so it's tough for HoW to compete. Should I give it a second chance?

The first season is a bit draggy Lasher.  But it does pick up at the end.  And season 2 was great.  Much improved from season one.

Just watched the finale and thought it was great.  I hope that next season is even more action packed than this one was.  Does anyone else think we will be seeing the Swede again next season?

Howdy y'all....from what I have read online so far, there is an expectation of an announcement from AMC about a third season for Hell on Wheels (hopefully positive!) by the end of the 2012.

I just posted yesterday about the end of Season 2 and discussed the theme song over at my blog....for those interested, click this link:

YES YES YES glad to hear. Although it's going to be a very interesting season due to the aftermath of season 2.
