April 29 2016.....I'm REALLY trying to like this series, seeing as it was shot so close to home.......but.....I just find it painful to watch, and the story line.....come on.... I'm supposed to find it even slightly believable? They did do a great job with the set, and of course the scenery is superb! (I guess I'm a little biased there!) Oh, and Lily.....what was that? A smart, resourceful woman, or ....wait a minute, did she just sleep with Durant? What? Oh now she's with Cullen? Hmmm, I think maybe she needs to lower that neckline and just slide on over to the brothel tent. What a waste of what could have been a good character, glad she didn't get into Gundersen's pants! (He fixed her didn't he!)

so awesome. Cullen is the best. Best show on TV. Awesome on Blu-Ray. Wonderful music.

Slow pace with little suspense or surprises to the saga. The freshness of characters and expectations from season one had worn off, even the scenic shots. Too bad the creativity of its writers seemed to have gone on hiatus.

Events get crazy and completely out of control at times during the second season of the gritty and action packed western series Hell on Wheels. At the start of the second season Cullen Bohannon together with a group of former Confederate soldiers perform several railroad robberies. Eventually Cullen is arrested but he is saved from execution by Thomas Durant on the condition that Cullen returns to work for the railroad. The American Indians, the Swede and the Reverend Cole stir up a whole host of problems for Hell on Wheels. When the former Confederate soldiers arrive in town to rob the railroad payroll Elam Ferguson, Cullen Bohannon and several others save the day but not without serious consequences. At the end of the second season Thomas Durant and his wife Hannah are accused of embezzlement. Beyond that all hell breaks loose in Hell on Wheels.
