• In a Chicago Tribune profile of Colm Meaney, the actor says of Thomas Durant: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a character as well written as this, certainly in the last 10 or 15 years I haven’t seen writing that has such a depth and such a clarity.”

TV Fanatic calls Hell on Wheels “addictive” and interviews Executive Producer John Shiban about choreographing the drama’s fight scenes.

The Futon Critic also interviews Executive Producer John Shiban, who offers some teasers for the rest of Season 2 and compares the transcontinental railroad to today’s space program.

The Journal Star lauds Hell on Wheels as “one of the best shows on TV, a worthy addition to AMC’s stable of incredible series.”
