Hell on Wheels
How Tycoons Think and View the World
Sometimes you’re treated like a skunk at a tea party. But that’s the fate of anyone who challenges the status quo. – Rupert Murdoch
I just discovered Hell on Wheels a couple of weeks ago and decided to give it a try because there was nothing else to watch. I ended up liking it. While the lead character is a walking cliche, the real star and saving grace of the show is railroad magnate Thomas Durant as played by the great Colm Meaney. Durant was one the tycoons who built the first transnational railroad after the Civil War.
