So yesterday I receive Disc One of Season One for Carnivale,, the bizarre HBO dramatic series.

I watched both episodes on the disc and was immediately hooked.

It's the story of the never-ending battle of good and evil, set in a traveling carnaval in the Dust Bowl era. It's like Tom Joad in Twin Peaks. It's got almost everything I enjoy in a t.v. series -- circus freaks, psychic weirdness, Adrienne Barbeau, a hallucinating preacher, cootch dancers ...

So today I learn that only hours before I slipped the disc in my DVD player, HBO went and cancelled the series!

This made me sad.

There's an effort to save it. Check out this blog There's even a post there from Carnivale creator Dan Knauf.
