    Only thing that could make this anymore awesome is if they add the first-season to Netflix instant like they did with The Walking Dead.

    Direct TV "Search" has to be using idiots to update listings. It says there are no future episodes of this show yet AMC is showing it every Sunday night as scheduled.

    Anyone know why show hasn't appeared in South carolina for episodes 6 & 7 and there are none scheduled in the near future either. I get Direct TV and AMC here is channel 254 but it hasn't been on since I saw episode 5.

    Great news my favorite show on AMC is getting another season. I enjoy westerns and a lesson in history. I always wanted to know what life was like and what workers dealt with building tracks to cross the U.S. Watching this show in HD shows how dirty things were and how life was difficult. Getting access to HD has never been easier. I enjoy all the HD content with over 200 channels available. I set up the HD free so I never will pay for HD again. This is offered to any customer of DISH who has HD and I never had some much HD. Now that I have so much HD I don't know what I would do without it. If I wasn't an employee I would still have DISH. There is no other pay-TV provider who offers a value like this to customers.
