I don’t know about you guys, but I love a good western. This is exactly why I was very excited that the people behind the awesomeness that is Breaking Bad are taking a shot at a western.

The new show is called Hell On Wheels and follows an Outlaw Josey Wales-type plot with a southern man whose wife is killed by Union Soldiers, so becomes a gunslinger out for revenge. The biggest difference is that this one is framed by the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad.  Below is the trailer. What do you think, could this bring Westerns back to the mainstream?
