A drama focused on the 1865 settlement that accompanied the first transcontinental railroad project.

When America's first transcontinental railroad project got underway in 1865, it was referred to as "Hell on Wheels" by the inhabitants of the settlement that accompanied its construction.

Come on you silly people - please put this show back on!! It was great fun and please excuse the borrowed-many-times term: "Guilty pleasure."

Gritty, bloody and awesome are just 3 words of many I could use to describe this series.
Without diving so deeply into the racial issues of the time that they would consume and ruin the show, they are still able to provide a limited education to many that even a former Confederate soldier may not be the racist history tells us that anyone from the South must have been.
I'm glad they finally brought up the issue of Chinese labor because those workers starting from the West Coast were much more numerous that most understand and also died in huge numbers during the construction seeking a better life in the US.
Character development can be slow or take a huge jump and that keeps one wondering. And paying attention!
I can't wait till it returns!
