Hard to Watch
I've refrained from commenting on Carnivale for numerous reasons. Mainly because I don't wish to colour anyone else's viewing of it. I would much rather have a discussion about it than give a full dialogue of my thoughts.
The final ep of season one aired on Sunday night and I've never been left more wanting, nor more repulsed at the same time. Not repulsed because of the story mind you, but still reeling from the harrowing image not 5 minutes before the end.
If you haven't seen the end of it, all I'll say is that it makes Justine slitting Wesley's throat look like a paper cut. I still shudder thinking about it.
I can't wait for the next season to air here. So many more questions.
This has been one of the hardest programs to watch I've ever seen. It's dark, dirty, challenging, confronting, philosophical and enthralling.
Reality TV hasn't a chance against shows like this.
