Hell yeah

'Zat you, Santaolalla?

The best part of AMC's new western series Hell on Wheels has to be the way-too-short opening title theme by Brokeback Mountain composer Gustavo Santaolalla (san-ta-oh-lah-yah).

Blood will be spilled. Lives will be lost. Men will be ruined. Deadwood fans expecting the next Deadwood will be disappointed.
Santaolalla's theme is my favorite original theme for a Sunday night show since rapper Asheru's declaration that "I'mma remain a soldier till the war is won" during the opening titles of The Boondocks (God, I miss that show).
