Hell on Wheels, Ep. 4.07, “Elam Ferguson”: Emotional decisions change course of show forever

14 September 2014 6:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hell on Wheels, Episode 7, Season 4, “Elam Ferguson”

Directed by Rod Lurie

Written by Mark Richard and Thomas Brady

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on AMC

This review contains major spoilers for episode 7 of Hell on Wheels

“Over the mountain and away from this place, I’ll get us there”

“Bear Man”, Hell on Wheels’ sixth episode, set the show back on the right track after it had strayed into slow and uncertain territory. The episode was smart, featured an exceptional performance by Common, and was true to the show’s brutal but contemplative nature. We now know that Elam (Common) survived the bear attack last season, at least physically. It’s clear that he is unstable and dangerous. Its follow up, “Elam Ferguson”, proves to be an emotionally devastating episode that shows the dangers of this world.

This episode finds all of our characters coming back together. It opens with »

Hell on Wheels, Ep. 4.05, “Life’s a Mystery”: equally frustrates and intrigues

31 August 2014 9:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hell on Wheels, Episode 5, Season 4, “Life’s a Mystery”

Written by Mark Richard and Thomas Brady

Directed by David Straiton

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on AMC

“Wouldn’t be wise to kick a man while he’s down- he’s liable to kick back”

Last week’s episode of Hell on Wheels, “Reckoning”, was a slow and disappointing entry. There were great moments but given how exceptional the first three episodes of the season were, “Reckoning” left much to be desired. “Life’s a Mystery” is better but it’s also very heavy-handed and uneven.

This episode has an unusual structure with a campy and rather unnecessary opening set in Juarez, Mexico. While stylish, the whole thing feels out of place. Grit and realism have always been what’s made Hell on Wheels special, so this hyper and bloody opening, complete with slow motion, doesn’t feel like Hell on Wheels. »

Hell on Wheels, 4.02, “Escape From the Garden” delivers one of the series’ best scenes

9 August 2014 9:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hell on Wheels, Season 4, Episode 2, “Escape from the Garden”

Written by Mark Richard

Directed by Neil Labute

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on AMC

“Blood will be spilled, that’s for sure”

Besides Elam’s (Common) survival, how exactly Cullen (Anson Mount) will escape The Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl) is season four’s biggest question. It’s what fans have wondered about since the end of last season, when the gates of that Mormon compound closed and Cullen was forced to marry Naomi (MacKenzie Porter). Now that he is a father and husband, escaping The Swede has become his top priority. Viewers have been expecting a lot, but few likely predicted what this episode delivers. But more on this later.

Hell on Wheels hit a series high last season and its fourth season premiere last week made it seem like it was going to continue that streak. Thankfully, “Escape from the Garden” doesn’t disappoint. »

Hell on Wheels, Ep. 4.01,“The Elusive Eden”: Strong premiere promises powerful season

3 August 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hell on Wheels, Season 4, Episode 1, “The Elusive Eden”

Written by Mark Richard

Directed by Neil Labute

Airs Saturdays at 9pm Et on AMC

“Some people don’t want to be pulled out of the mud, Mr. Durant”

There’s a very strong argument to be made that along with Hannibal, AMC’s Hell on Wheels is one of the most underrated dramas on television right now. Over the course of three seasons, the show has moved from a historical drama to a deeply moving and fascinating character study that just happens to be set during the building of one of America’s greatest accomplishments, the building of the Union Pacific Railroad. Its muddy and vicious camp is inhabited by rich and thrilling characters, the storylines continue to capture the viewer’s attention, and our lead, a man often struggling with a dark world and the darkness within himself, is an endlessly fascinating and evolving character. »

'Hell on Wheels' Ep John Wirth explains the recasting of Cullen's bride -- First Look

24 June 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Hell on Wheels returns Aug. 2, and the AMC Western—which parlayed Saturday night success into an expanded 13-episode fourth season—will have more than one new face. One that might surprise fans is that of Cullen’s young Mormon bride, Naomi. Originally played by Siobhan Williams, the character was introduced early last season when the railroad carved its way through her family’s Nebraska homestead. Cullen (Anson Mount) had sex with her once in the barn, but then had to hang her brother after her trigger-happy father blamed his son for killing of a member of the railroad police. In the season 3 finale, »
