    Pretty good show, in my opinion. Story of a Civil War Confederate veteran going out to avenge the death of his wife and child who were raped and murdered by Union troops. In the process he finds employment working for the Union Pacific railroad.

    Lots of Natives, guns, and Civil War grudges and stuff.

    One scene, main character guy is teaching some black people to shoot guns. He takes care to inform a guy not to muzzle sweep him, and keep his muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Also mentions that fingers should be off the trigger. Nice little details added there, I liked that.

    Anywho, good show. I give it a recommendation. It's on Netflix.

    One of my favorite shows.

    CBC : from Wikipedia :
    The phrase "Hell on Wheels" was originally used to describe the itinerant collection of flimsily assembled gambling houses, dance halls, saloons, and brothels that followed the army of Union Pacific railroad workers westward as they constructed the First Transcontinental Railroad in 1860s North America. The huge numbers of wage-earning young men working in what was a remote wilderness, far from the constraints of home, proved to be a lucrative opportunity for those with expertise at separating such men from their money. As the end of the line continually moved westward, Hell on Wheels followed along, reconstructing itself on the outskirts of each town that became, in turn, the center of activity for the Union Pacific's construction work.

    Season 2 kinda dragged but was good enough to watch. Last season was good.

    As a Mormon the kids church song they used in season 3 they almost destroyed for me and the way they depict Mormons is about as accurate as they depict the Native Americans.
