Carnivàle

HBO's done it again. Carnivàle is bloody brilliant. It's a 12-episode mini-series set in 1930's America, and I'm kicking myself for missing the first four episodes. I watched half of the fifth episode last week, and loved the look and feel of the show, even though I didn't understand anything. I made a mental note to see the next episode, and almost forgot about it. But I remembered yesterday night around 2300 hours, much to my relief today.

It looks really great for one, unlike any show I've seen. The acting is terrific. I understood some of the story yesterday, and then went online and read the plot of the earlier episodes today. I just hope that the series repeats, so I get a chance to see it completely.
