America loves a winner!



It's sort of Harry Potter's Diagon Alley meets Game of Thrones.

Carnival Row is an American neo-noir fantasy web television series created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham, that premiered on Amazon Prime Video August 30, 2019. The series stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne. In July 2019, it was announced that Amazon had renewed the series for a second season.

Extremely well done , w/ costumes, make up and ' period ' piece scenery. While not set in our history, there is a late 1800's, early 1900's vibe to it. Missing , at least so far, is any sort of map which lets the viewer have a grasp as to the scale of this world, the different lands, the empires and the location of the now ravaged Fae lands.

While it's a bit slow at times, there's also a fair amount of gratuitous nude / sex scenes as well as a few gory shots. Again, not near the level of GoT, but still plenty of adult language , just to remind folks this is NOT to be confused w/ any Harry Potter stuff.

Enjoyed this show a lot B+. Both leads very capable, talented actors. How hard it must be to be serious and emotional as a fantasy character. Amazing sets. I know a lot is from cgi but I still can't get over the big film production look of these short Netflix/Amazon series.
