    After watching Walking Dead this Sunday, stick around for the new series Hell On Wheels premiering then. Here's a quote from AMC's website about it :

    “Hell on Wheels” – a contemporary western about post-Civil War America that focuses on a Confederate soldier who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who have killed his wife.

    I watched a trailer for it and it looks to be pretty good...

    Ya, AMC has been pushing this show really hard it seems. But that's ok, it look like a great show and I will definitely be trying this out! Looks real good.

    Just wondering if anyone involved with Deadwood is involved with this, man that was a great show!

    There are several short "extras" about the show available for download via DirecTV VOD. I downloaded them to the DVR yesterday, but haven't watched 'em yet - may wait until after watching the 1st episode.

    It got 4.4 million, second highest AMC premiere ever. I also have it on my HD. From the trailer it looks kinda cool--vaguely Deadwoodish.

    It's every bit as good as I expected and more! Its premier showing got great ratings, 2.4 demo 4.4 million. I hope it continues at somewhere near that level.

    They certainly went off in a few different directions with the pilot.

    AMC may tick a lot of us off with all their ads and editing that is done with the movies they play, but they keep coming up with new, fresh shows like Hell on Wheels. I loved it!!

    I gave it a high priority series link... :)

    Better than I expected (and I already had fairly high hopes).
