I really liked Carivale, great show. Didn't get the ratings though, think it was to weird for a lot of people.
2 Melon's ITT.
I'm interested in what you all think of the books compared to the TV Show.
It seems to me that the series is following the same path as Dexter and True Blood. Taking some fantastic characters from the books, but deviating freely from the story in order to make it batter. The perfect example in the show are the scenes with Arya and Tywin Lanister. Created some very tense drama, but not in the book.

Would you say the books are worth reading then?
The whole Dystopian / Steampunk / Avante Garde / Carnivale thing is very in vogue nowadays , If it had been released now as more of a darker cabaret play on stuff like Grimm / Once Upon a time ( modern day fairytales ) - I think i would of worked well. ( esp if it was more Victorian with Lewis Carroll, Dickens, Jack the ripper etc )
Rob's story is almost over, he's just an object lesson in playing the Game of Thrones. He won every battle and lost everything else.
Jon's story has hardly started.
That twittery thing was frakkin' hilarious Singh400
Is there more? I'd like to see the whole saga played out via social media
Edit: I don't use FB, Twitter or any of that stuff but must admit some of the stuff (real) ppl come out with, as reported in the 'normal' press, can be quite fascinating

Right this thread has convinced me to start watching this series (my bro has the 1st series).
I didn't think it would be for me but enough people have been on about it for me to think lets give it a go Actually i thought the hype would be just yanks loving a historical accent whilst proclaiming they are 1/64 Irish type thing but it looks like this might have enough back bone - nice one
