Anyone watching this on ITV4? Gritty storyline and great music.
I started watching it a while back and wrote :
"Hell on Wheels. Some nice nods to realism give a thin sense of authenticity to a modern western soap. Bullets miss, mud is smeared, blood adorns the dead. But it all feels a bit thin with plot and characters uninspiring and largely unoriginal and the historical setting which could have provided a rich broth is ... thin. Not sure I'll run to Season 2. "
I didn't quite manage to finish S1. For a western based on a railway setting it just ... runs out of steam.
