If you are one of the people that believe Twin Peaks was a bit too commercial, then Carnivale is the right TV series for you. The series follows young Ben Hawkins that one day somewhat by accident joins a travelling show, the Carnivale. We gradually realize that Ben is more than meets the eye; the young man has strange healing abilities and even stranger visions as we will see later on the series. All members of the travelling carnival prove to be more than ordinary tarot card readers, mentalists or mere freaks; everyone plays a part in the great battle between good and evil.
The second story Carnivale focuses on is that of Justin Crowe, a priest that learns about his unnatural powers and is convinced God speaks thru him. The truth about the two main characters is nevertheless more complicated, and darker that is seems and the grand battle between good and evil is about to take place. All characters have a larger or smaller role in the struggle between good and evil while Justin and Ben are the mere avatars of the two sides.
Being an HBO production, Carnivale has the advantage of a fairly large budget, which visible in the cast, costumes and so on. On the other hand, the script may seem a bit chaotic at times and the David Lynch sort of approach demands viewer’s attention. However, this approach has its advantages and makes Carnivale a distinctive series, very hard to forget. Unfortunately, the series had a somewhat abrupt ending. Although being a success with the public at first, the show had dropping ratings and was cancelled after two seasons only.
The series targets a rather narrow segment of the public, and this is perhaps why only two seasons were filmed out of four. However, if you are part of the target audience (among those who enjoyed twin Peaks) then you have to see Carnivale.
