5. Hell on Wheels

A Deadwood-esque show set in an 1860s boom town centered around the Transcontinental Railroad, this vintage-looking show is part historical drama and part action-revenge Western thriller. Besides the industrialization of America, a big part of the plot centers around a one-time Confederate soldier who wants to kill the man who murdered his wife.

As a huge fan of historical television shows like Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men, this show has lots of potential as long as it keeps the dialogue snappy and doesn’t forego detail-oriented period research.
