    Used "search" to see if it was been already covered...but couldn't find it.

    I know "HOW's" had been going for some time, and for a few seasons, but wanted to see what others thought of this western-type of TV series that was build on the creation of the railroad through the west in the 1800's.

    Personally, I think it's a great series, but that's just me.

    I haven't seen a good western series on TV since Bonanza.

    Which network is this one on?

    I catch it on the "Native Channel". Not sure if it's on NETFLIX yet?

    It's character driven, with features not only the main dude, but others in the cast.

    The plot is varied as well, and the attention to time period detail is great!

    The protagonist sometimes loses in his fights, and has really bad days which adds to the realism of the production.

    I warn you...once the series grabs ya, it doesn't let go. But it takes a bit to sink its claws in.

    For sure!

    I, like you came late into the "HOW" scene, so have lots to catch up on.

    It's best described as character/personality driven, in which you really get to know the people on board, and they aren't the typical two dimensional, "cardboard-types".

    Get back to me after a few viewings.

    Just caught the "Bleeding Kansas" a 2014 episode and was a difficult one to view. One of the most graphic event of a leg amputations I've ever taken in, much more so than what "Dances With Wolves" similar scene offered. It was intense and realistic!

    Another plus, the realism that "Hell On Wheels" offers.
