I've watched this from start to finish and have thoroughly enjoyed it! All the actors were great and made it and the story very special! I was sad after the last episode, its a great shame that they did not continue the series! The gist of the story is just because someone represents Good this does not mean that they are Good. There are many Brother Justin Crow's among us and they are in powerful positions in our world today just waiting and planing to bring evil to our world. God be with us always!

When i win the lottery jackpot I will bring back cancelled shows like Firefly, Carnivale & Voyagers from the 80's, but not Alpha (as sheldon already confirm that it better this way).

Dear HBO, Please bring this show back ! Finish the series "Godamit". Saw Nick Stahl outside of the Cheesecake Factory in Pasadena, CA. If they bring this show back - he's got to be in it ! He looks exactly like he does in the show except cleaner :)

Such an awesome show, but i was thoroughly disappointed with the end of the last episode. I hate when they cancel a series without a proper ending. They should at least end every series that gets cancelled with a satisfying ending. Cliff hangers are so annoying when they don't have a reprise.

Amazing first season. Season 2 was a let down though it's still better than most shows in their prime.

Some of the best television you will see. Cant find the words to justify it, just gutted it has ended. The characters, storyline, locations, perfect.

Too bad this one was cancelled, some really great performances, and a hell of a story. 5/5

Amazing. Loved every episode. No idea why hbo canceled but you really cant beat this series. I was worried when i was getting to the end it was just going to leave you hanging, which it does, but you do get some closure from the 2 seasons. 10/10

I thought this series was top class ! I watched the 2 seasons in 3 days . Really well written and I loved all the crazy characters and freaks. The costume and scenery depts really captured the essence of the depression era 30s . Brother Justin is superbly creepy.....I loved the Hoochie Coochie dancers too ! What a bummer they have cancelled it after 2 seasons,i'm pissed now as they have left season 2 on a real cliffhanger. Still worth watching though. Really enjoyed this 10/10!

I second that!Why was this show cancelled???? B.S. Same thing happened with Deadwood, another awesome show that got left dangling out there slowely strangled out by 18 and pregnant, Kate plus eight, ..and lets not forget the waste of film, BRIDEZILLA! If all these crappy shows where a library I would hate to see the collective card holders!

Probably one of the best Shows in Television history.And the bastard cancelled it WTF is going on.Also Jericho,Firefly,Battlestar Galactica,Invasion,Jeremiah,Kingdom Hospital why are these series all got cancelled they were all very popular.OH but Desperate Housewives,CSI Miami and The Jersey Shore are going strong yet I personally don't know even one single person who likes these garbage shows.So why cause the NWO want u ppl to wath shiit like these so u will be thinking that that's real life and it's all so wonderful and there are no problems at all

Isn't it the most tragic thing how this show got cancelled. Just disastrous. Right at its peak, just as everything was coming to a gigantic climax, they pulled the plug. Unforgivable really. HBO must burn for this treason. On of my favourite TV shows of all time. Can't find the proper words to praise this mystical landscape of desert, magic and intrigue. And the music, the music! The Carnivale soundtrack has been like a bee, be it a pleasant one, buzzing in the back of my head for weeks.
