Where’s the Pretty But Asexual Schoolmarm?

AMC has just announced that its latest series and first original Western, Hell on Wheels, will start production on a full series this month in Calgary. (Calgary is Winning everywhere this month, it seems.) The trailers they’ve released make it look like… well, like a Western. One without a lot of female characters, but lots of railroad talk, and hopefully a good Western. Other than that, I’ll wait to comment until more details come out about the series.

The subject heading is an allusion to Rustlers’ Rhapsody, my go-to source for easy jokes about Western Tropes™, including railroads. Unfortunately I can’t find a clip of Fernando Rey saying “All my men are dead! Who’s going to build the railroad now?”
