This is another AMC show. It just started with two episodes in and I have to say, it is great although it is a western so if you are not into that type of show you may not like it.

Both episodes are on my DVR. Just have to find time to get them in.

I'm so far behind on everything after being sick and gone all weekend.

Pretty sure the smell and taste of Tallahassee is the reason I'm sick.

Pretty good. 2nd episode was better because of the "Swede"

I think he will end up being the opposition to our hero.

I am thinking he has just went around avenging his wife. I bet a group of guys really messed her up and somehow he found out who they all were.

I love westerns and couldn't wait for this series to start. After two epsidoes, I have to say I am a little dissapointed. The avenging civil war soldier coming back home to find his wife had been killed by union troops is so overdone. I am a little bored with it so far. It's early but i hope it gets better.

I am sure there will end up being far more to it than that.

So far I have found this series to be dull. Anyone excited by it yet?

I like it. It has started a bit slow but I feel like it is about to get pretty crazy

I will get around to it at some point to check them out... sounds like the kind of revenge formula of my favorite old Clint spaghetti westerns including Pale Rider, The Outlaw Josie Wales, Hang Em High and A Fistful of Dollars.

I disagree. I don't get where you think the acting sucks. I really like the show and so far, there seems to be some really good story lines developing.

I agree...not in my upper echelon of shows, but its entertaining and interesting IMO. Maybe Im numb to it after subjecting myself to The Walking Dead this season, but the acting has been pretty good. Im not someone who notices that unless its blatant though.

I don't hate it, but I don't like it enough to set any time aside for it. Can't really say what it is about it that doesn't keep me, because I love the topic and I like a lot of the actors in it. Maybe the writing?

Maybe it is the writing. When I think of westerns, I think of gun fights and shootouts. Maybe I am spoliled a bit. I was hoping this would keep my interest but so far, nothing. I am holding out hope.

God yeah! I am hooked on that show big time. Can't get enough of it. They even had a swamp thanskgiving special. This show has taken off. It is as popular as Deadliest catch now.

I like it so far. It's slow, but not Walking Dead slow. I actually like the main character a lot and, unless they take it in another direction, it seems like they're turning Common into more and more of a badass. The Swede definitely is one, but it hasn't become apparent why yet. There has to be a reason that everyone is so scared of that dude.

And they would have given up on looking for that girl within an hour, if they bothered at all.

Walking Dead is the best comedy on TV. It reminded me of why I love zombie movies in the first place, which is the writing being so terrible that they're hilarious.

After watching commercial-littered Pale Rider and The Outlaw Josie Wales on AMC this weekend, for probably the 25 time each, other than again wondering if there's every been a better actor than Clint (I think not!!!), I decided to give HOW a shot in the near future. Few genres of movies come close to the unsentimental, brutal, violent, character-flawed, revenge-driven Western.

It got to the point where the main reason i watched the show was to be in on all the jokes in the reviews :lol:

I don't understand why some of the guys are hating on this show. I really like it and seems to be developing nicely.

It has an 8.2 rating on IMDB.

Something about it bores me. To me the characters suck. I like Colm Meanyey. After that they suck.

They're trying their best to make you like Common's character too. At least he's kind of a badass on top of them trying to make you like him.

Ok let me just sya, I have been waiting weeks and weeks for this show to finally get good and boy has it ever. Tonight's episode just blew me away. The ending was fouckin awesome as well. I mean, this totally blew me away. Common has become one of the characters I really like the most on the series. The actress who plays Ms.Bell has also caught more eyes, in more ways then other. One more episode to go and I can't wait to see how it all ends. God knows there will be some more blood shed.

Hell yeah. I so didn't see that coming. I also don't think bohannon kills that guy harper. My only question is, what becomes of the swede? Does he get blow away. It's the last episode, someone has got to die.

I just don't know. So much happened in the last couple of episodes, esp. the last one, it's hard to predict what will happen. I am guessing it will end with a massive cliffhanger.

last night's finale left a lot to be desired. all we got was a freakin dance. the joke of it all was the swede: how the freak does he stya alive after that attack. that was a joke big time. u mean to tell me, they dont kill him? wow, just a letdown from the previous episode oh well.
