Carnival Row is an American fantasy television series … that premiered on Amazon Prime August 2019. The series stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne.
The series was shot entirely in the Czech Republic throughout 108 shooting days.
On Rotten Tomatoes, Carnival Row has only a 55% approval.
“Beautiful, but bloated, Carnival Row boasts meticulously crafted mythology and luscious world building—unfortunately its story of haves and have nots simply has too much going on to create anything cohesive.”
I agree with some of that.
Season 1 is a bit of a disappointment for me.
The racism theme FAR too heavy handed.
There are too many characters. Too many subplots.
But the acting is good. Special effects astonishing. Fantasy spectacle, intrigue, and sex all good.
It has potential. I’ll definitely watch season 2 hoping they can find a more focused plot.
