(Apologies in advance if I'm a little muddy -- miserable cold, sinuses backed up into brain.)

HBO is replaying season 1 of Carnivāle starting (from the beginning) on Monday 12/6.

I think Carnivāle is excellent. Very intelligent. Somewhat strange, but in a very interesting way. Beautifully done as a period piece (1934). Beautiful subtleties, & very detailed. Some mystical stuff, some historical stuff. Comparative religions, mythologies & philosophies. "Twin Peaks" is often mentioned, although I'm personally confident that those in charge of Carnivāle have more of a clue where we're actually going with this story.

The single biggest problem with recommending it to people is that I can't imagine how somebody could possibly drop in partway through the series & have any chance of sorting out what's going on. However, since they're replaying season 1 from the start, now is a good chance to catch it.

You're on your own for time zone corrections. (For example, in Phoenix, we have the east coast feed at 9:00pm, & the west coast feed at midnight. Punt.)

Mon 12/6 11:00 PM EST Carnivale 01: MILFAY

Tue 12/7 11:00 PM EST Carnivale 02: AFTER THE BALL IS OVER

Wed 12/8 11:05 PM EST Carnivale 03: TIPTON

Mon 12/13 11:05 PM EST Carnivale 04: BLACK BLIZZARD

Tue 12/14 11:00 PM EST Carnivale 05: BABYLON

Wed 12/15 11:00 PM EST Carnivale 06: PICK A NUMBER

Presumably the rest of season 1 follows in the subsequent weeks.

Now to complicate matters, they're also running a parallel "thread" of episodes on Saturday nights; however, that's up to about episode 7 already. So don't get those by mistake -- you'll be very confused!

Season 1 is also out now on DVD for those who want to catch up. I agree with you on both points - I absolutely LOVE Carnivale, and it's nearly impossible to jump right into it.

For those of us who are all caught up and are eagerly anticipating January 9th, there's a preview of Season 2 available on's "Carnivale" site [link].

I think we need that president right before Taylor (who pardoned Logan? How retroactively convenient!) to come back, swig some bourbon and say "told ya so, honey." (I am probably misremembering)
