Second Chance Television...

If you missed HBO's Carnivale when it ran on Movie Central in Canada, you can catch the series when it runs on History Television, starting later this month.

Like many of my favourite television shows in the last decade, Carnivale was cancelled before it had a fair chance. It lasted two seasons, though, and every episode is worth watching. Basically, it's good versus evil, but with a sideshow. No, really, it's a great show. It's set in the Depression Era dustbowl... there's Old Time Religion, strange dreams, fortune tellers, and a mother-daughter peep show. Yeah, it's a little tilted, but so am I.
