How did I not know or even hear of this show…ever? And it’s the in its 5th Season!
I first noticed the show when I was binge-watching Sons of Anarchy. And when I saw the title: Hell On Wheels. I assumed it was just another biker gang show, seriously.
Nope! It’s a show based in the mid-1800’s when the first railroad was being built east to west. It just after the Civil War ended and Lincoln was assassinated and demonstrates what life could have been like at that moment. I love this kind of stuff. I’ve never been much of a reader. History class never grabbed my full attention. But these period pieces have opened doors to my curiosity.
There’s a few recognizable faces:
And, you can see why I thought Dominique McElligott was Hannah New from Black Sails.
I’ve got a new show that I’m excited to see the next episode and I highly recommend it. After I watch the 5 season series in its entirety, I may come back with a review. But right now, I’m in and still pleasantly surprised it’s not about a stupid biker gang, making stupid decisions that’s not truly anarchist.
Just my oponion.
