I found a new American drama series about the beginnings of the american railroads in the west. I wondered if anyone else had seen it and if it was worth sticking with. First episode I saw had lots of guns and killing and not too many trains, so I am tempted to give up.
I didn't realise this was being screened in the UK ?
From what I've read, it's in the same mould as 'Deadwood'.
The locomotive(s) leave a lot to be desired as they've been turned out in a black livery (sacrilege!)
so as to create the feeling of menace from the advancing railroad.

I think I digress slightly since I haven't seen HOW.

I never saw more than a few minutes of Deadwood from time to time - it didn't grab me.

Don't compare the lousy screenplay of "Deadwood" with HoW!
The pure amount of dirty words in one episode of deadwood must equal the whole HoW series.....
I will follow it with great interest!
(on a side note, if you want to see some model railroads in a movie, watch "The great wind"!
Probably the best comment ever regarding model railroads in a movie...)
