A Carnivale Like No Other

The final battle between Good and Evil is looming, and Ben Hawkins and Brother Justin are on a collision course that could determine the fate of the world, when HBO's Emmy-winning drama series Carnivale returns January. The 12-episode second season begins Sunday, January 9, 2005 at 9 p.m., with the episode entitled "Los Moscos," followed by other shows on subsequent Sundays at the same time.

1934. The Dust Bowl. The last great age of magic. In a time of titanic sandstorms, drought and pestilence - all signs of God's fury and harbingers of the Apocalypse - the final conflict between good and evil is about to begin. The battle will take place in the Heartland of an empire called America. And when it is over, man will forever trade away wonder for reason.

Unusual, disturbing, visually stunning, this is a series to be savored (in BeansTalk's opinion).
