I've Just Started and I'm Hooked
9 September 2019 | by markkbransonSee all my reviews

I own that I am a sucker for fantasy and/or sci-fi. I own that I'm a fan of Orlando Bloom. I own that I relished period pieces (even tho' this one is in a tome long ago and far away).

But the real reason why I'm hooked on "Carnival Row" is it's obvious political parallels to our sole today. This first episode makes this political/cultural connection explicit.

There are numerous parallels to American in a post-Trump world and Brexit England. Just for a few examples: xenophobia, a mindless war, mass immigration, prejudice, class conflict... the list goes on and on. But identifying these and relishing the commentary is the joy here!

Join me and watch this show and you will have a grand adventure and serious thoughts about our world today!
