    Hope they don't screw the timer up like 90% of everything else that premieres on BBCA, my DVR will catch the first few episodes then they all come in as repeats and I miss them.

    Think there was a behind the scenes of the show or something the other day.

    Watched the premier of Copper and it was OK. It wasn't spectacular, but a decent watch. I'll try it again, next week, and see if it grows on me. Since it was a show using the time period of the Civil War, I hope they actually use some of the historic events, surrounding that time period. We'll see.

    Dark, moody, can't tell the guys apart, hard to find characters to like. Boring plotline. Depressing world. I give it a fair at best. I'll watch it, just because there's no Mad Men or Hell on Wheels on now. It's a real Summertime drama drought so marginal stuff like Coppers gets a second look.

    Hell On Wheels is on right now 9pm ET on Sunday on AMC. Unless you have Dish. I think they dropped AMC but it's on channel 254 on DirecTV.

    Those are just replays of the old HOW stuff, right? Not new shows.

    Yes, liking Hell On Wheels. Pretty dark and gruesome. Copper, episode 2 is OK, but I wouldn't put it on par with Hell On Wheels.

    OK, watched part of Copper, episode 3. They kind of lost me, being a very slow and prodding drama. So I've scratched it off of my list for what to watch, on Sunday nights.

    Really wanted to like Copper, but it's dark, claustrophobic, depressing, and hard to distinguish characters or find any to like. It lost me. Also don't think it had particularly good writing involved. 2nd tier creative, same as Tudor and The Borgias. Dialog, plots, character delineation just not up to snuff.

    I really like Copper and am glad that BBC America renewed it for season 2.

    On a related note, I am guessing that Law & Order:UK is done as nobody discusses the show and my repeated inquiries to BBC America go answered.

    According to the Wikipedia article, it was renewed. Goes into production next month.
