Plot: In the wake of the Civil War, the Nation flexes its muscles, reaching for the Pacific. Entrepreneurs build railroads, and former Union and Confederate soldiers provide welcomed distractions: shootings, robberies, law and sex.
Pros: Solid characters with some depth, gripping plot twists, decent sets, costumes and acting. You don’t know Mr. Swede until well into 2nd series.
Cons: Nauseatingly brutal and unnecessarily cruel. At times it is hard to figure out how much time has passed between the events, especially if occasionally a scene starts in a fall only to conclude back in early spring, before panning to full summer – feels like an editorial mixed salad.
