I saw this week's episode of Hell on Wheels last night and agree with those of you who thought it was the best show of the season. The hardbitten but tortured Bohannan is a fascinating character. I am also seeing more and more to like about the beautiful Lilly who, despite her delicate appearance, is a very tough lady. Nobody should confuse Hell on Wheels with Deadwood, though, because it's not in the same world. Still by the standards of modern TV dramas the show is quite good, I think.
I was particularly impressed by the writers' ability to tell the story of Lily and Durant's trip to Chicago and return, Bohannan's rescue of Elam from the lynch mob, and Bohannan and Elam's dispatching of those sent to kill them, all in 43 minutes. I thought it was both generous and well done.
