Why You Should Be Watching: AMC’s Hell on Wheels

We’re kind of fond of Hell on Wheels around here, and Sunday night, the series is wrapping its second season with a back-to-back airing of episodes nine and ten. Which is awesome, because twice the show! Which is not awesome because it’s getting spanked in the ratings, and with such […]

Relationship Recap: Bohannon and Lily, Hell on Wheels

Sex scenes are tricky business. Sometimes when a show finally pulls the trigger on a couple’s UST, the scene isn’t at all what you wanted or expected it to be and then you’re sort of on the fence about whether they should’ve gone there.

Getting to Know Lily Bell, Hell on Wheels

I knew I was going to like Dominique McElligott‘s Lily Bell the second we met her. There aren’t a lot of women willing to uproot themselves and head west with their husbands. But Lily has a connection to the wide open and unspoiled land, even though her Robert’s work will help […]

Fall TV Crush: The Guys of Hell on Wheels

Warning: Slight spoilers discussed. I haven’t been this excited about a Western since Deadwood. I know that probably sets the bar unreasonably high so I’m trying to lower my own expectations. What I’m very interested in learning about – besides the backstory of the two leads – is more about […]
