Intense drama taking place in the depression days of the 30's. It follows very strange and interesting characters traveling with their carnival show. Involves the ever present battle between good and evil. The ending of each episode really leaves you wanting more. I watched at least 2 episodes at a time on a weekend when I had a couple of hours to relax except I didn't relax waiting for the drame to continue. Definitely not for children.
One of the the best tv series ever put into a box set. Put the the kids to bed there is alot of adult content but it is not glamorized and is only used to develope the characters relationships between one another.If you enjoy the battle of good evil with a twist that has never been used before then this a must see..Way too bad they were only able to do 2 seasons......HBO has always done top quality entertainment and this is no exception. You really care about all the charecters and when you think you finally have it all figured out you are left with your jaw dropping open because of the twist and turns they take. The season ending episode of season 1 will have you rushing to the store the next day to purchase season 2 ITS REALLY THAT GOOD!!!!!!!!!!
This show is incredible. There is not another program on television that I have ever watched with such fervor! Every episode leaves you on tenterhooks until the next one. Never have I ever been so engrossed, awed, and excited about a series.
