Carnivāle

1934, America. The Dustbowl. A fugitive named Ben Hawkins finds refuge within a traveling carnival comprised of a tarot card reader and her catatonic/telekinetic mother, a blind mentalist, a bearded lady, and conjoined twins, amongst others. The carnival is owned by the mysterious and unseen Management, who has designs on the young Hawkins, for the boy is concealing an untapped gift: he can heal the lame and raise the dead--at a price. Ben also finds himself disturbed by cryptic and prophetic dreams, which he shares with a Methodist preacher in California, Brother Justin Crowe. Brother Justin, convinced by his dreams he is following God's will, has begun to practice his own extraordinary talents, although the preacher's plans increasingly lead to disturbing and tragic consequences. In this "last great age of magic," Ben Hawkins and Justin Crowe are moving toward a great conflict between Good and Evil, although it not yet clear on which sides these men will stand.

I absolutely love this one, maybe the best serie they ever made (from the ones I watched). I'm doubting between this one and twin peaks, can't choose. Really love the atmosphere that grabs you by the balls from beginning till end. It's about the battle between good and evil but it goes much deeper than that.

Really a shame they canceled the show cause I had an unsatisfied feeling at the end of the second season, maybe a reason not to watch. Hope they will someday finish what they began, they planned for a couple more seasons.

Just finished the second season and yes, loved it yess
Such a shame indeed that they didn't continue, maybe television is not ready for such series. I think this is a rare piece, some parts are quite ruff. I was quite impressed that this was actually showed on american TV

oh well, shame, maybe one day....

Quote :
While ratings began agreeably, by the end of the first season they were down significantly. During the second season, the ratings slowly rose toward the end; however, the show became increasingly expensive to produce at the same time. Many fans suspected that, due to HBO's tradition of carrying shows through to an end, and Daniel Knauf's six-year-plan, the show would be renewed, but in May 2005, it was leaked that the series would not be returning for another season. HBO confirmed that the show had been canceled on 11 May 2005. The show's ending after its second season and leaving so many plot lines unfinished has outraged many viewers. Some of them organized petitions and mailing drives to HBO to get the shows renewed. According to HBO's president this generated 50,000 emails in one weekend to the network.
