Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been watching Season 1 and 2 of Carnivale. With the MMO world being in somewhat of a state of flux at the moment, I thought it would be a good time to earn some brownie points with the girlfriend in preparation for the launch of WAR.
For those who haven't seen Carnivale, I highly recommend doing so, it was one of the best TV series I have ever seen. When my girlfriend first told me about it I was very skeptic and convinced that it definitely wasn't up my alley, but I was wrong... very wrong.
The series is set in the US during the Great Depression (a nice change from my usual sci-fi) and explores the concept of good and evil via walking avatars of God and the Devil. The story is based on a combination of Christian theology, gnosticism and Masonic lore (the Knights Templar). Very very cool...
Worth a watch if you haven't seen it already.
