Carnival Row is a romantic, urban, gothic, mysterious, steampunk whodunnit with a talented cast and a deep mythology that provides rich stories. The show had a lot of information that it had to get to its audience who knew nothing of the world that Travis Beacham and Rene Echevarria created. It did it masterfully, giving pieces of information that made the story consumable to the masses. It has a lived-in feel, like the first Star Wars movie did. It feels that this world actually exists, and we are just getting a peek of it.
