News & Interviews for Carnival Row: Season 1
Despite those momentary bright spots in an ongoing bleak collection of fates, Carnival Row largely meanders through the world of its own making.
Carnival Row, whether airborne or down-to-earth gritty, keeps flexing the power of its oft-breathtaking visuals. The worlds it creates are the greater sums of its whole while the messages it sends can be a little two telegraphed.
Like many a silly novel, it is a shambles, but an enjoyable one, and as long as you're up for some full-throated groans you'll be rewarded with a long, messy, and satisfying distraction.
A lot of it is just Amazon going: 'Look we've got money. Look how much money we've spent.'
It's recommended; a period costume drama on acid, and as strangely carnal as it is solidly and politically aware.
The overall look of the series is impressive, though very cold and grim - money has obviously been spent here. So for fantasy fans, that alone could be enough inducement to plough through.
There's substance in Carnival Row for those looking for it, while it can also just be a fluff genre piece for others.
All of the elements are there: top-notch acting, amazing set pieces, beautiful costumes, a well-known cast, and sex. Lots and lots of freaky, winged sex. Yet despite all that, there is something still lacking.
Carnival Row delivers on its promises, to varying degrees, and more by interweaving topical ideas about immigration and racism through every facet of the sprawling drama.
Carnival Row has faltered under the high expectations held, falling a little flat on the promising basis of a new magical world.
Audience Reviews for Carnival Row: Season 1
Feb 11, 2021Every few years a show comes along that grabs my attention and keeps it. Firefly, The Red Green Show, The Walking Dead(at least it did), Absolutely Fabulous, Justified, Battlestar, etc. Count Carnival Row among them.
Feb 02, 2021muy buena, esperando la siguiente temporada.
Jan 26, 2021thankyou for this show please give us season 2 now.
Jan 03, 2021It is not an easy view if you are upset by injustice. Despite its premise, it is a very believable program since it captures the human tendency toward prejudice against others who are not like us very accurately. I look forward to season 2.
Dec 31, 2020I wanted to comment because I saw a few people commenting along this line that I am as right wing as they come, but in relation to this series, in my view if you can get past the similarity to a liberal narrative, you can enjoy a rich, complex and intellectually satisfying world.
Dec 06, 2020Game of Thrones meets Penny Dreadful. With a Tolkienesque backstory. Kind of. Whatever it is, it works.
Dec 05, 2020Here to see Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne in action. Visually attractive, you get the vibe of ‘Pan' and ‘Fantastic Beast' with all their fairy tales, creatures, and mythical lands. The story itself is deep, flowing, and filled with politics. Plenty of characters with different story, motives, and agendas. It requires focus to see this beautiful story.
Nov 15, 2020Amazon's attempt at fantasy genre eventually ending up as Netflix's Bright.
Oct 08, 2020A bit too much leftwing,liberal bullshit for my taste..we dont need more useless propaganda......👎👎
Oct 01, 2020I'm more excited to see the return of Carnival Row than ANY other series this year...
