Hell On Wheels: Season 5, Volume 2: The Final Episodes (2016/Entertainment One/E1/EOne Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C+ Episodes: B

If the Western/Civil War era is your cup of tea, then you will want to check out Hell On Wheels – AMC Network's gorgeous looking show that is now premiering its final episodes on Blu-ray disc. The show follows the journey of Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount), a soldier who sets out to exact vengeance on the Union Soldiers who have murdered his wife.

In these final episodes of Season Five, Bohannon finds himself in Truckee, California - where the Central Pacific Railroad was born. Historically accurate and at times brutal, the show is constantly entertaining and will especially be so for history buffs that like lush production design.

7 Episodes span two discs including Two Soldiers, Return to the Garden, 61 Degrees, Gambit, Any Sum Within Reason, Railroad Men, and Done. The show also stars Christopher Heyerdahl, Byron Mann, and Colm Meaney and is produced by John Wirth (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Falling Skies).

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a great sounding DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless track that sounds crystal clear. The presentation here is a vast improvement over the original digital broadcast. If you're a huge fan of the show, I would definitely suggest picking this up.

Special Features include

- Featurette: "A Look at the Final Episodes"

- Featurette: "Golden Spike"

- Wrap Up

- 7 "Inside the Episodes"

It's sad to see good shows come to end but at least Hell on Wheels ends on a high note.
