    I will watch but im not really excited anymore for Hell on Wheels…still a good show but it lost its pop, its zest, its strong appeal to me when Lilly Bell died. The show is more than just their “ship”…but their “ship” was pretty awesome and was finally going somewhere. I dont mind a show making a creative decision to make this guys life even more of a hell…but i do think there is something to be said for a female character on HOW that is strong, stands up to Cullen, that has chemistry/an attraction with him, etc. Heres hoping they hire a female lead for that part and shes not some one season plot and eventually leaves or dies, i want a solid multiple season female lead.

    Happy for Candace Bailey! I loved AOTS but i doubt i will watch. The Game Show network? eh.

    Hell on Wheels is an absolute stinker of a show. What a waste. A good premise and a decent cast squandered on absolutely horrid writing. It gets more ludicrous every year. Just imagine what it could have been in competent hands. I feel sorry for the cast.
