I agree it's no Deadwood but it definitely gets better as it progresses. Worth the watch.
A bit slow and predictable in parts but still a good watch. Historically not accurate, just a reasonable fiction story.
great series, great settings, looks very authentic, adults only action
It's good but it pales in comparison to other period shows such as Deadwood and Boardwalk Empire. Compared to those masterpieces this lacks bite. Compared to all the other ordinary shows on TV though this is one that should be more popular. I just wish the characters were more memorable.
This is a good movie I liked the way it unfolded and how lives were lost and touched by the plot of one man to build a railroad.
3 If you love the American post civil war era like I do you will enjoy this series. (The wife didn't, stopped after the first scalping !) I found it a great study of human nature and the various stark, cruel pecking orders of society during the progress of the new America. Tough hard uncompromising life, full of greed, hostilities towards each other and above all a desire to succeed in life by everyone. Impressed with the very realistic and accurate costumes & camp settings regarding the true brutal life in the railroad "hell hole." Storyline is a basic one of revenge, characters slowly building, it has a few holes in the script but forgivable; after all it is a western! Not as good as Clint Eastwood's "unforgiven" but similar record of those harsh times. Hope Disc 2 is as good.
excellent tv series, has become one of my favorites of many, the picturing,story,setting and acting is all fantastic, story is set in the older era about a men that seeks revenge on the people responsible for killing his wife.
