This is one of the few GREAT shows on television. Creative, bold and very unique. If story really does matter to AMC they will renew Hell on Wheels and allow it flourish as it clearly deserves to..

This is by far the best show on TV. It has great acting, beautiful cinematography, good characters and storylines and is actually intelligent viewing. It needs to be renewed for a Season 3. It is just getting its bearings and is better each season. Don’t stop the train now. It still needs to be built!
