Definately no wrap up there. Maybe if they'd have cut the last minute out they could attempt to say this but clearly there's a huge cliffhanger there. I'm writing in....maybe if there's a backlash they'll reconsider and tell the rest of the story.
I missed Carnivale the first time around so I thought I would try it. I find it to be quite an interesting quirky show. I hope I get to see Adrienne Barbeau's famous assets again. The last time was the swimming scene in "Swamp Thing" ("they are real and they are spectacular")
Carnivale was originally envisioned as a 6 season show, constructed as a trilogy of books that covered 2 seasons each. The series was reportedly developed for the entire 6 seasons but was canceled before it could be completed. I thought the concept and vision were fantastic, if a little dark and inaccessible. It lost it's audience in the second season which is regrettable. IMHO, the second season was the best and had the most payoff as it resolved many mysteries and increased suspense as it did. There are a few episodes that are difficult to watch but stick with it as the payoff near the end of the second season is worth it. Carnivàle
The language was why I liked Carnivale and stopped watching Deadwood. The occasional four letter word makes for good emphasis but a continuous flurry of them does not make a good script. Like Jay Leno says, he doesn't need to use foul language to get a laugh. The word "idiots" is just as funny with the right setup.
