Carnival Row TV Show Review Part Two

This will contain only minor spoilers.

So, I’ve finally finished the entire show, and let me tell you – this show is unpredictable, in the BEST way, and I loved every part of it!

Vignette(Cara Delevingne) and Philo(Orlando Bloom) rekindle their love, after a backstory showing why Philo originally deserted Vignette. Philo was also outed as being half fae, and then wrongly accused of being the monstrous serial killer. That too, was revealed in the season finale! Believe me everyone, it was a really good reveal!

The show also touched on an incest plot. The two sibling lovers are definitely showing elements of Cersei and Jamie Lannister from Game Of Thrones. If the two pair of siblings ever fought, it would be hard to tell who the victors would be. I’m not going to reveal who the sibling lovers are yet – it would spoil almost everything for you. Like who the killer is, motives, etc., so you guys should definitely check out the show! It’ll leave you wanting more!

The show does couples so well. Whether it’s friendships, enemies, or lovers. Speaking of, these two together are the highlights of season one, for me:

The characters, Agreus (David Gyasi) and Imogen (Tamzin Merchant) make a deal to help one another: Agreus needs accepting from the human faction, and Imogen needs money. Seems like a fair trade right? Their relationship and banter with one another is addictive, comedic, and has its fireworks. It’s one of the best storylines of the season!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a show, without a rebellion of some sorts. These guys decide they’ve had enough of the way they’re treated, and decide that it’s time to fight back, and what they start doing is shocking. You can’t really blame them. The humans are really disgusting in their treatment of the fae. I’m kind of on their side here! 🤷🏽‍♂️

So, there you have it. There are quite a few deaths, the identity of the monstrous serial killer is revealed, relationships are formed and tested, discrimination with political play is at an all time high, a new power rises, and a rebellion has begun. Looks like Season Two is going to be very explosive! Can’t wait!

Carnival Row airs on Amazon Prime Video and consists of eight episodes. It has already been renewed for a second season! If you haven’t watch this, I highly recommend that you do. With Game of Thrones gone, it’s been hard to find a really good show to watch. And now we have one! Check it out you guys!

Mixture of Dreams Part Eight

It’s that time again, all my literary friends. Mr. Giant is teleporting, into mysteriously, groovy lands. Given magical red shoes, to teleport around. Really wanting, to hear musical sounds. *DING* The Giant appears on stage, dancing to “Survivor.” Destiny’s Child, bringing the house down like a WWF, or E, pile driver. No, literally, the stage begin to crash. Too much rockin’, like Jumpin’ Jack Flash.

The Giant teleported again, this time to a land dressed in all black. Though wait, that’s usually reserved for Ms. Mary Mack, Mack, Mack. 🎶 He teleported again, this time on a yellow brick road. Somewhere over the rainbow, where his red shoes were bestowed. Glinda magically appeared, who blessed him the shoes. The Giant thanked her, happy that he sang the blues.

*DONG* The Giant found himself at home, it’s the rhythm of the night. Letting his excitement breathe, so his mind rests in delight. Though the party will live on, it’s that time for bed. This Giant, hopes that all of you wonderful writers, are enchanted with soothing dreams ahead.

Mixture of Dreams Part Siete

The Giant rocks in the tree top, all day long. He was getting drowsy, time to change that song. The “itsy bitsy” Giant went up the water spout, down came the rain, and knocked the Giant out. He looked around embarrassed, hoping no one was near. He tried to “play it off,” releasing a laughing tear. The Giant decided to call it a night, it was pretty early. He headed back to his treetop, with a knot so burly.

It was back to rock-a-bye Giant, on the bean-stock tree top. Having a sense of deja vu, already seeing this backdrop. He laid on his iron bed, his essence drifting into idyll. This Giant, wants all of your dreams, to be colorfully vital.

Mixture of Dreams Part Four

knock. Knock. KNOCK. The Giant heard at the door. Who is it, he asked? “It’s the Three Little Pigs, and we’re bored.” The Giant let them in, from out of the forrest. Large, medium and small, he fixed them some porridge. They ate and laughed, and told funny stories. Something about the Pigs being a wolf’s quarries. The Giant told them about the wolf in the woods. And how… he ate Lil Red Riding Hood. The Pigs looked in fear, and wanted to call it a night. The Giant offered a ride in the Nautilus boat, it was only right.

*Row…*row..*row..the boat, gently down the stream. Three Pigs and a Giant, wow, they were quite the team. They passed Londons bridge, which was falling down. Finally arriving, in old Storybrook town. Straw, sticks and bricks, their houses appear. Fee-fi-fo-fum, The Giant sensed night was near.

The Giant bid farewell, and left the old town’s road. He was so tired, he could kiss a toad. He had a lot of fun, it was stellar. To his surprise, being quite the storyteller. The Giant got home, and went straight for his bed. And soon he was out, like the horseman’s head. The exhausted Giant, dreamed of flying sabers of light. Sweet dreams you all, this Giant, wants you all to have a wonderful night.
