Did everyone give up watching? According to an article in the NY Times viewership for Carnivale’s dropped down to a little more than half of its 5.3 million premiere. I, however, am still tuning because I actually think things are getting more interesting.
The connections between Brother Justin and Ben (and the Carnivale itself) became more pronounced with the cause/effect nature of Justin’s sermonizing/prayers about Babylon and the murder of Dora Mae, the “harlot.” RIP, Meatloaf’s daughter.
Babylon creeped me out, with the miners standing silently outside the roadhouse and their mass joyless entrance into the carnival. There were no children, either, were there?
Ben scrabbling through the mind shaft was very strange, with finding Scudder and the body of the man he killed, then seeing what I thought was “avatar” written all over the wood beams. I have no idea.
