Carnival Row Beautifully Stumbles into Its First Season

5 min 3 yrs

Ever since the ending of the tumultuous final season of Game of Thrones, networks and streaming sites have been scrambling to find a replacement for it in the culture. HBO is trying to keep its hat in the ring with the Game of Thrones prequel, a Watchman series based on the comic, and the fantasy adaption of the His Dark Materials series. Netflix has the upcoming The Witcher, and Amazon Prime now has Carnival Row, premiering on the streaming platform this Labor Day weekend. If you are like me, you have a white walker sized hole in your television loving heart and while Carnival Row doesn’t fit the frame perfectly, it does its best to satisfy the craving, while making something new.
