Critic Reviews for Hell on Wheels: Season 3

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Overall, "Big Bad Wolf; Eminent Domain" wasn't the blast out of the gates premiere for Hell on Wheels that I was hoping for.

These first two episodes reestablish Hell on Wheels as a series that isn?t quite as wacky?even if the show does start with ghosts and Bohannan fighting a wolf?and seems to have a much greater focus.

There are some new folks; a NYC reporter who is an unnecessary tough-dame-reporter caricature. What this well-written series does not need is a character whose only job [is to move] the story along with expository dialogue in the guise of interviews.

August 20, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There's certainly some promise in this apparent new direction; if nothing else, the show seems to be more directly about railroads than it ever was in the first two seasons.
