HELL ON WHEELS — Pilot Responses

November 7, 2011

You can post your response to the Hell on Wheels pilot by commenting on one of these issues (about all of which I have strong feelings that I shan’t be revealing, at least until class tomorrow).

Your posting this week (or any week) can be a reply to one of your classmates.

Please use as many tags as seem sensible to you and place your post or reply in the “Hell on Wheels 2011″ category.

  • Comment on the spectacle—the sound, cinematography, costumes, sets
  • How did it create a sense of “period”?
  • Did it feel like a proper beginning to you?
  • Does it create the impression of a “genre” show?  How?
  •  Can one judge a television show on the basis of the pilot–think of that question in relation to the problem of
  •  Did it feel/sound/look like other television shows or films you’ve seen?
  • Analyze one of these scenes:
  1. the scalping of Mr. Bell and Lily Bell’s escape
  2. any conversation between Elam (Common) and Colin (Anson Mount)
  3. the final “zebra” monologue
