    The first season was great, reminded me of Deadwood's excitement and believability. Seasons 2 episodes have the same arc...boring, boring, boring, cliffhanger. AMC does best when they stick with the original show runner see seasons 3 and 4 of Walking Dead.

    I can't understand how people loved this season more than the previous one. First season was perfect but this?! Awful! Full of soap opera, full of disappointment. I hated season 2.

    I have loved this show from the beginning. The writing leaves me each week in a state of looking forward to the next episode at Battlestar Gallactica. The characters are so evolving each episode that I don't care what part of the story ie.. the rail... is driven forward but what the characters are doing. Too bad more folks don't know their history or more would appreciate the show.I have loved this show from the beginning.

    Mount needs to run this thing, and he can't if he's the caboose. [27 Aug 2012, p.44]

    It's successful enough at achieving its own more modest goals.

    The second season of this Western finds it marginally better paced and the characters moderated a bit from the broad archetypes seen in Season 1, but I still find little to compel me in the story of a robber baron and an ex-soldier teaming up to get a transcontinental railroad built.
