Watched the first ep of "Carnivale." (I realize I'm about 18 eps behind, but there you go.) Boy, it's taking a while to get somewhere.
But then you sometimes just, you know, trust. Because something about the way the story's being told suggests that when you get there, it will be just right.
I like the show, but it's definitely a slow show. The second season is moving faster and the first episode of season 2 revealed a lot that was left hanging in the first season. I think it's best on DVD when you can watch them within a short amount of time.
