“The Son” premiered Saturday, April 14th on AMC. The two-episode premiere was the #1 original scripted drama in its time slot. Anyone else hoping “Son” fills the void most recently left by “Hell on Wheels”? The Pulitzer winning novel by Philip Meyer this series is based in is fantastic. The show is very promising. the production is fantastic. The cast is lead by Pierce Brosnan as the family patriarch. With only the premiere to go by, the show is incredibly promising and worth checking out.
