This show can be one hundred percent captured in every sense, in every way, in every pain you feel when you have to see pointless fuckin garbage continue to hold strong while true art like this perishes into dust, by a line from one of my favorite songs. "When you want it, Goes away too fast, Times you hate it Always seems to last...." - Marilyn Manson, 'Speed Of Pain'

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).

"Before the beginning, after the great war between Heaven and Hell, God created the Earth and gave dominion over it to the crafty ape he called Man. And to each generation was born a creature of Light and a creature of Darkness. And great armies clashed by night in the ancient war between Good and Evil. There was magic then, nobility, and unimaginable cruelty. And so it was until the day that a false sun exploded over Trinity, and Man forever traded away wonder for reason..."

It was slow the first few episodes, but once you get past that it's interesting. All of the actors were well chosen. I can't think of any other show set in the 1930's depression, and this depicted those desperate times.

best show I've ever seen! the characters are so real, the plot...so involving, surprises every turn... wonderful costumes, brilliant directing, the music too... This summer is my 6th time watching this show, and I only wish it were my real first time. too bad HBO pulled the plug on it! you can find a soundtrack of Carnivale online as well!

Amazing show, also another one of the ones that got canceled before it should have been unfortunately.

One of the very best shows ever aired, at least in my opinion. The actors, costumes, and sets really bring the despair and desperation of 1930's America to life, and the supernatural elements are woven into that historical backdrop seamlessly, which makes them all the more disturbing. It's such a shame that this show was cancelled after only two seasons, but it's still absolutely worth watching.

Well this show is a little slow and strange, but I am intrigued I've watched two episodes so far, I look forward to working my way through the rest of it

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!
