I see 12 people have looked at this and since no one replied I am guessing you are all as confused as I am :bnghd:--- so how come I want to torture
myself and watch the whole thing - do I really think I will understand it any better? Hopefully the next couple of shows will make things clear as
they are the last ones of the year.
I watch carnivale religiously(no pun intended)...If you are catching it, say, now, then you will be completely lost...If you caught like Episode 1,
Season 1 and then saw Episode 4 Season 2, you are probably lost. I can tell you what has happened thus far, but I need to know where you are at in
the show. Season 1 DVD has been out since 12/7/2004
I didn't catch most of the first season at all - just maybe 1 or 2 and not the initial -- and have caught the past month or so -- now wishing I had
seen it all. I haven't seen the DVD yet -- will have to look for it -- do you think my local blockbuster will have it or do I have to buy it.
Not sure...Buying it would be expensive($74.99)..Just checked Blockbuster.com and they carry it online at least....
It's a really good show..I would highly recommend catching it from the beginning, because even if some eps are slow, Season 2 is totally worth the
I'll have to check out my local rental place (in town) to see if they have it -- have a membership there -- if not I may have to go a few towns over
to blockbuster to get it from there.
I get that the minister is evil and Scudder was evil -- but why did the minister cut Scudders head off -- just to get rid of him or did he get power
from it -- does that mean the kid is evil and just doesn't know it?? And the girl working for the minister (sorry about no names -- no coffee in me
yet) now is actually his daughter by a rape of her mother?? Does the minister know -- the sister remembered it right??
ARRGGHH --- I just know you are going to say I have to watch it to understand -- please give me those answers at least. pretty please
Brother Justin cut Scudder's head off to take his power(called "The Passing") The only way he could take it is by surprise or if he gave it freely.
I think the kid(Ben Hawkins) is good, not evil. The sister knows about Sophie but I don't think Justin does
Can you explain the tree tattoo and the running thru the corn field flash back significance? What I got was a possiblity of going back to a Cain and
Able original good vs evil type of connection? And did Sophie inherit the evil because of being his daughter when he died?
Anything else you can help with would be greatly appreciated -- don't worry about spoilers for me -- I'm just sooo confused -- and I will still look
for the first season on DVD
HATED the finale....Sucks that Jonesy died. The tree tattoo was a refence to season 1. Ben kept seeing that in his visions("The Usher") and he
kept seeing the tree tattoo chasing him thru the cornfields, so that's what that reference is.
As for Sophie, the best I can come up with is Justin told her it was time to choose him or the Carnivale, and throughout the season she kept hearing
"Every Prophet In Her House"....Then when she was captured, the ghost of her mom told her "This is your house". I can only assume that means that
she was on Brother Justin's side.
I thought it was cool that the whole Carnivale now respected Ben Hawkins and wanted to help and I really loved the part where he was healing everyone
in the tent using BJ's power.....
But leaving it like the whole field of flowers is dying because she is supposedly reviving Justin is Bullcrap!!! We wait 2 seasons to watch Ben hunt
Justin and finally kill him, just to have him be resurrected AND have a sidekick that is just as powerful, if not more than him? That sucks!!!
Yeah Jonesy dying sucked big time -- Also I was hoping that when Ben was healing the old minister using BJ's power that he (the old minister) would
be the one to kill BJ. On Sophie I thought that the vision of BJ raping her mother and knowing she is his child sent her over the edge on the whole
"This is your house" thing -- like it wasn't a choice to her anymore-- that "blood will tell" type of thought.
I really hope she isn't able to revive him but that is what I was thinking while the corn was dying also -- do they repeat the season or will the new
season start soon do you know?
Carnivale has not been renewed yet. The creator wants 6 seasons total to tell the whole story, but HBO has yet to renew...Aintitcoolnews.com reports
that HBO is unlikely to renew and the creator is already developing a comedy series for Showtime
