Astonishing TvSeries
12 November 2011 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

In my opinion this show is one of the best series in the fall of 2011. AMC Showed that it never brings any bad shows for people... Hell On Wheels is one of the most potential shows that I ever seen. A western with great actors promise a great show in the fall. The Directoring is awesome and music is fantastic. I think this show is one of the best things that AMC could produce. though, I think we have to wait to see the whole season but Im very optimistic for this show. Of course the story line could be better than this but, there is some characters that I liked them a lot! Like Tom Noonan who appears in a holy father role, Common which I love his voice and of course Anson Mount. An Actor who I think is going to be famous with this show like Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad. And of course we can't ignore Colm Meaney with his great performance.
