Hell Raiser

Hell On Wheels Season 3Apparently I am so out of the loop that I didn’t know last night was the Season 3 premiere of Hell on Wheels.

Thankfully, my TiVo does my thinking for me, and I was able to watch it, albeit late.

I won’t spoil anything for any HoW fans, but suffice to say, this season looks to be as good as the first two. The double-episode premiere was chock full of action, drama, and Cullen Bohannon. The second episode ended with a bit of a shocking scene, but as always, it was well-written and well played.

The premiere comes just in time, as Falling Skies’ season ended last week. Now it’s time to raise Hell.

    I still need to get caught up on the second half of Season 2…they didn’t have a day-long Hell on Wheels marathon like they’re doing with Breaking Bad are they?

    I didn’t care for the first par of season 1 (despite the fact that Chief O’Brien was a main a character), it seemed way too slow to develop. What am I missing here?

    Old NFO – You can watch the first season on one of your long flights to undisclosed locations. :)

    Fenway – Not that I saw. The series is getting shafted by being thrown to Saturday night. It’ll hurt ratings, which is a shame because it’s a great show.

    Taylork – Things got better in the second half, and last season was a barn-burner, IMO. There are times where I wish certain characters would go away, but overall, I love the series.

    Fortunately, I can use On Demand to watch these two AMC series [Breaking Bad and Hell on Wheels].

    Have you watched any of Ray Donovan ? How good is Jon Voight in that!

    Don’t have to be under a rock to have missed it was coming. I didn’t see a commercial for it until the day before.

    **Mild spoiler alert** I should’ve seen the death of the new UP Police Chief coming (actually, I thought he’d last a few more episodes before something happened). Most the ‘tells’ from the 20th century buddy-cop movies were there- a prodigious love of coffee, talking about his numerous offspring and he seemed to be building up a rapport with one of the protagonists (Elam) before his demise.

    I though he’d last longer than a single episode, tho’

    Excellent episode. Loved the last 10 minutes.

    After a very slow Season 1, Season 2 ramped up nicely with an awesome last few episodes; Season 3 looks good so far!

    But where is Sharpton and Jackson, they’re using politically incorrect verbiage on that show!! Where is the outcry, and the rallies and the …. :P
    I have watched the show since the beginning, it’s pretty good. And some of the guys on it are Hawt!
