    It looks pretty good and I'm willing to give AMC a chance based on Walking Dead. I setup a SP.

    I'm looking forward to it as well. Both my local paper and the WSJ had good reviews this morning which caused me to set the SP.

    The time right after the civil war is an intriguing one, for me. The South lost so all its soldiers are embarrassed, angered, looked down on; the North won so while relieved, no doubt many are arrogant, pushy, feeling due for some respect. Then there are the freed slaves trying to make their way amongst a nation that still largely doesn't want them around, feeling them inferior, as they in some ways certainly are because of lack of education and background. The interactions must have been something to experience and I look to shows like this one, and Deadwood, to allow me to be a fly on the wall.

    I hope it's good.

    The above cited review calls it "Deadwood for Dummies". AMC is on probation with me after The Killing. I will give this a chance though.

    I'll always give AMC shows a shot and I like westerns usually. I've read mixed reviews. I believe it's just 10 episodes?

    I've not set a season pass yet, but have the 1st one set to record. Review I read wasn't so great, but what do they know.

    Since everything on AMC is better than everything else on TV, I have to give it a shot.
