Anson Mount and Tayden Marks

Hell on Wheels isn't just getting renewed. It's getting super-sized!

The AMC period drama has been picked up for a 13-episode fourth season, which will air on Saturdays. In contrast, the first three seasons of the series consisted of just 10 episodes each. AMC moved the series, which stars... read more

Midseason Review: Red Widow, Vikings, The Bible

Edi Gathegi and Radha Mitchell

It's not much of a spoiler alert to point out that the title character of ABC's Red Widow winds up in (sexy) mourning by the half-hour mark of Sunday's dreary two-hour premiere (9/8c). It's even less of a surprise, given the nature of this most dismal network midseason in recent memory, that these widow's weeds are fashioned from less than sturdy dramatic fabric.

Weeds being among the shows that dealt with this sort of subject with more imaginative verve. The subject: murderous drug intrigue cloaked in... read more

SEAL Team Six Offers an Entertaining Look at bin Laden Raid, But Won't Sway Voters

SEAL Team Six

Controversy arose when the National Geographic Channel announced that it will premiere a film about the successful military raid that killed Osama bin Laden two days before the presidential election, but anyone who walks away thinking that SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden is a political piece has blinders on.

From the first 15 minutes — which include an intense, violent firefight — it's clear that the film's purpose is to provide entertainment, not to advance a political agenda. President Barack Obama is merely a background player (albeit an obviously necessary one), while the real focus is ...

Guide to Weekend TV: Hell "Breaks" Loose on AMC, Plus Sharks and Monkey Business

Christopher Heyerdahl

NBC will surely miss the Olympics ratings bump once the Games are over, with closing ceremony set for Sunday, but the rest of TV is more than ready to get back to business. Even as the torch is being snuffed on NBC, the lights are going on elsewhere.

Including on AMC, which airs one of the most gripping episodes to date — and that's saying something — of its dark masterpiece Breaking Bad (10/9c), in conjunction with the return of the drearily dour Western Hell on Wheels (9/8c) for its second season.

All Aboard for AMC's Railroad Drama Hell on Wheels

Hell On Wheels

One of the resonant early images in AMC's ambitious new drama Hell on Wheels — about the building of the transcontinental railroad in the fractious days immediately after the Civil War — has religious believers ecstatically submitting to baptism while, in the background, violent progress proceeds apace, with huge explosions tearing up the terrain.

"That's very representative of the show," says Tony Gayton, who created the series with his brother Joe (they've collaborated on films, including last year's... read more

Critic's Guide to Weekend TV: Hell on Wheels, Fringe, Homeland, and More!

Anson Mount

Describing Hell on Wheels as "Revenge in the mud" makes it sound a lot more enjoyable than it is. AMC's sprawling but heavy-handed attempt to revive and redefine the Western (a newly hot TV-development trend) is solemn business indeed, with precious little wit or originality. (It premieres Sunday at 10/9c.)
