perhaps i had this show hyped too much for me, but i was rather disappointed. as another user explained, the setting in the depression-era and costumes are probably the best part about this show.

however, the storyline seemed a little canned and overdone (with a child of light and a child of dark), and never really went anywhere, except to another town, and another town (convenient for a carnivale). i convinced myself it would get better and finally develop, but i was left unsatisfied at the end of season one's finale. i cancelled my hold on season two.

This was an HBO series that got canceled way to soon. It was only two seasons but honestly it is a must watch! It's a battle between good and evil but takes place during the 1930's in a carnival setting. The characters, costumes and settings are amazing!!! I own this series.

Wonderfully wacky and weird, would very much recommend for something just a little bit different.
