If you have never heard of Carnivàle it may simply mean it is not a TV show for you. Not that it’s exclusive but it is demanding and doesn’t appeal to everyone. Let’s be honest – Carnivàle does carry a certain amount of weirdness. It’s a Lady Gaga amongst TV shows – but without the global commercial success and unnecessary pseudo-intellectual contexts. However, I highly recommend taking the time to watch the whole of it – as the creator Daniel Knauf said: “you may not understand everything that goes on but it does make a certain sense”.
