Did anyone check out the premier of HBO's new series Carnivale?

If you did how did you like the "coins from mouth" routine? Smile

This looks to be an awesome series. I love wierd things like this. Sunday nights will be very interesting now.

The opening title sequence was just about the coolest thing I've seen in a long time!

The story Carnivale is telling is one of the oldest in print.

Using Carney's to travel from village to village as they reveal a puzzle piece on at a time under unique circumstances is very clever.

The most fascinating part of this is how "Management" uses each of his pawns to carry out his demands.

The smartest move the director or writer made was the one in which he cast the shortest person for the role of the Ringmaster.

Each of the sequences and scenarios hangs on his response. It doesn't work without it! If you'll watch for this you'll see what I mean?

Enjoy the rest of the series and watch for the Bear in disquise? He is blind and hungry.

Calling all Geeks home is necessary every other generation! This story is the return~r2

I guess it's just you and I on this one Ellen?
I have pondered the same theory "Management and the Priest and differing timelines"

"All the players in the same room at the Café in the dream" (remember?)

Yes!
I think this is possible. See how the dreams overlap the two--and how the boy is drawn to him (if he is management?)

Love the show.

PS) I also enjoy the tarot cards at the beginning.

Ok..this is getting VERY weird! Did he dream yesterday about the dad in the mine? Also, did you see the end of the clip (the priest) saying he lost his god? I think he will be management!

I think that trial they showed was them thinking Ben killed that hooch girl.
