Elizabeth Haverford: Well that's fortunate. I've brought you here to ask a favor of my own.
Detective Kevin Corcoran: [pulls out Elizabeth's letter] Next time, could you ease up on the rose water? I will not hear the end of it at the precinct-house.
Elizabeth Haverford: Embarrassing you was not my intention. It's just the way I smell.

Gave it a chance..
6 November 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

And it delivered. I was not expecting much from this show, not because of the relatively unknown actors, but because there's a lot of "back in the day" shows coming out the last couple of years (Deadwood, Hell On Wheels, Boardwalk Empire etc) though this show has certain hints from other shows, it has it's own gritty feel about it.

The characters are great, and you never know who is doing what or who they are doing it for, there's no "Oh I know what's about to happen" and even if you get that thought process, it's a very unlikely chance you'll have guessed it right.

As stated in a previous review it's not the greatest show on earth, but just when you're about to give up on it, you get smacked in the face with the next scene which leaves you hanging for the next season, I do recommend watching this if you are a fan of Deadwood/Hell On Wheels.
