    Carnival Row

    Your thoughts? I've just finished the third episode and am completely hooked.

    Pretty fucking dense tho story line-wise. Maybe they're hoping for a long run.

    Still funny to see Orlando Bloom stomping around rather than being a fleet-footed elf.

    Heard rumor that they've greenlit Season 2...

    The more I ruminated on it over the long weekend (I went camping and skiing and had a lot of alone time to ruminate on important things like Amazon series) the more I realize that it's pretty much a straight soap opera, but it's well done and well acted so I didn't mind the obvious soap opery bits.

    It also reminded me of this CW show I attempted to watch last year called The Outpost. Lots (and I mean lots) of similarities between the two, but the CW show was done on the cheap and it's pretty obvious that they dumped some decent cash into Carnival Row.

    If by soap opera you mean the love triangle issues then sure, I agree, but that's a pretty well mined theme in many dramatic series. I still think it's awesome.

    Iíve watched all of The Outpost. My wife loves it. I watch for the hot chick. But, Iím struggling to see the similarities to Carnival Row. Can you elaborate?
