I like to think of myself as being pretty with-it when it comes to figuring out the complexities behind many fantasy/sci-fi ventures that aren’t completely explained.
Therefore, I was pleased as punch when I ran across this:
If it’s NOT 100% correct, at least it fit the information my brain picked up from watching the series.
So, that’s it. A big long blog post to give you a link to a wiki about a show that’s been over some time now. Why bring it up? I bring it up because:
1) The complete series is currently half price at Amazon.com.
2) I’ve been thinking about HBO again thanks to the A Game of Thrones adaptation.
I really liked both The Wire and Deadwood, but Carnivàle really felt like a show that was made specifically for me. The Lost Room was a close second in that regard, with a mythology and storyline very near to my heart. I felt like I “got” these series more than others I had talked to, feeding into both my geek dynamic and incessant narcissism.
Still, it’s great watching the series again after reading through that wiki. Well done, I say.
