Carnivale

The My So Called life thread got me thinking about my favorite show ever, which was also cancelled prematurely. Two seasons of Carnivale were not enough!

Agreed. That was a great show. I feel like they really rushed to a resolution in the finale. I wanted more!

Loved season 2. Season one was kinda slow, but the atmosphere was wonderful, and I loved the opening credit sequence.%0D %0D I wish it had gotten another season or two.%0D

I loved it too, but I don't remember how it ended. It didn't answer questions, right?%0D

Nope - left a lot hanging. Canceled way too soon

So the main character.. the Okie, what was he?

This show creeped me out to no end. In fact, it was the source of the most troubling television scene I have ever seen (and certainly will never forget) - the end of the episode called Babylon. One of the stripper sisters dies/is murdered by the miner ghosts ... the final scene shows her looking out of a window knowing that the rest of her existence is going to be tortured and raped repeatedly by the ghosts. Horrifying/worst nightmare kind of stuff.

Ahhh agreed r6.

In overall creepy atmospherics, this show tops any I can think of.

That still makes me shudder, r6.%0D %0D I also remember [in season two?] Jonesy being tarred and feathered at one point, but I cannot remember why.

Just started watching. Reminds me of Twin Peaks, but it looks like they know what they are doing.

One season of Cannavale was more than enough for me.

Thought he show was great but I don't remember any of it. I must rematch.

Season 2 was awesome. If only they had KNOWN they were not going to be picked up... they could have had the season finale be the series finale with the final show-down (instead of a draw).

One of the best credit sequences ever, too... at least until Game of Thrones came along.

A damn shame it got canceled. It was a great show.

Can you watch it streaming anywhere? Anyone remember American Gothic? Canceled too soon and did they ever reveal what the little girl was so terrified of?

It was amazing. My reading of the last episode was the kid (forget his name) was the devil and the preacher (Clancy Brown) was actually the "good" one. It was a reversal.
