Carnivale

I suspect that no one else will ever post in this blog but I’m going to give it my best effort. I wanted to share with you all my enthusiasm for a new program running currently on HBO. It’s a series (I can’t recall whether they view it as a mini-series or not) about the battle between good and evil.
There was a review in the Dayton Daily News over the weekend. Becky happened to stumble over it and realized that I would probably enjoy it. She was right and I’m glad she clued me in. The review characterizes the show as being a cross between the Grapes of Wrath and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. It appears to be a fair statement. In fact I would guess there was a deliberate effort to foster that perception. One of the main characters is a little person from the Twin Peaks series. I don’t believe it was coincidence.
