Carnivale, Season 1HDCautionClosed Captioning

1934. The Dustbowl. In a time of sandstorms, plagues, drought and pestilence—signs of God's fury and harbingers of the Apocalypse—the final conflict between good and evil is about to begin. HBO presents Season 1 of this sweeping drama series that focuses on a primordial conflict of good vs. evil that plays out against a pair of vivid and unusual backdrops: a traveling carnival working the American Dustbowl circuit, and an evangelical ministry in California. On one side is an 18-year-old fugitive named Ben Hawkins (Nick Stahl) who is taken on by the carnival and whose unexplainable spiritual powers jolt members of the troupe. On the other side is preacher Brother Justin (Clancy Brown) who is being visited by visions that demonstrate his own burgeoning powers. As Ben tries to understand his special gifts, and as Brother Justin maps out an ambitious future, the two men are set on a cataclysmic collision course that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.

All time classic

Pity it only ran for two series.

Telly at its finest

Impeccably made, it's such a shame it got cancelled far too soon.

This is a real gem

I recently discovered this series and was astonished I knew nothing about it; since it was first screened in 2003. Its a real gem, superbly acted, a highly original series of interwoven story lines that threads its way in and around the central plot of good versus evil. The filming just oozes quality and conveys the shear desperation of simple, god fearing farmers struggling to survive both the baron landscape and economic hardships of the great depression during early 1930's America. The production quality is truly outstanding. Its not hard to see why HBO pulled the plug on this series as it must have been hugely expensive to film due to the level of authenticity. I, like so many other fans, am very sad it ended with the second season but this is a must see series and is both compelling and absorbing. If HBO were to bring this series back, I for one would be very happy to pay a premium for it!
