Carnivale Salvation sign now

I'll start simply, predictably, and maybe a little over sentimentally. In advanced, I'm am sorry if I seem grandiose. I don't get emotionally involved in the plot lines of shows. I don't care much for what happens to the characters, most shows are just idle amusements after work and before sleep. I care what happens, but only in the least, and for only the duration of the show. I am by no means a videophile.

That said, I think I should go into something specific to Carnivale itself. I'm going to use mainly the first person for accountability reasons, however much of what I read online and hear in person, echoes these sentiments exactly.

One of the things that remains seperate and above Carnivale from the masses, is that the series shows aren't merely a series of unrelated subplots that affect the main in very general ways, basically each episode of Carnivale isn't just "the next show in the series" it is part of the series as a whole.

Now, a series shouldn't be defined in solely how it is better than all other shows so let's go down the tried and try elements of any great classic. Humanity. Even the "left hand of God" character had humanity, you saw him struggling with his nature not willing to let himself become what was inevitable. You saw the main character struggling to comprehend his full potential, learning that there are things in life that need to be done that are great, but that need to be done.

The individual characters of the show had a certain charisma, an attractive humanity about them that made them a pleasure to experience. The issues struggled with were more than a hokey "we can seem serious" re-hashed moral lessons, they were real emotions being played out in front of us.

Even if this is unsuccessful, I want it to be a signal sent to the cast and crew, one that nudges them in similar directions from here on. Carnivale is a bright shinning example of what entertainment ought to be. It ought to be more than unilateral direction, led for the dollar sign, but should be a artform, not a cheap daily-grind job, both for the cast but also for the audience...

I think I speak for most of the fans when I say, television will not be the same.
