Ahoy you filthy apes!

Hope life is sweet and all is hot. Just a quick instant message for a great show that has been on my mind of late...Carnivale. This show is mega awesome, like MEGA AWESOME SWEET KICKASS!!!

Anyway, it was cancelled 2 years ago cause HBO sucks ass. The story's as follows:

One of the greatest shows ever, won 5 emmys and countless other awards as well as tons of nominations (not that it matters). It was launched in September 2003, produced by and aired on HBO.

Ran for only 2 seasons whereas it was meant to run for a full 6.
Season 1, Sept - Nov 2003. Season 2, Jan - March 2005. Real. Cinematic. Bliss.

Extremely expensive to produce, and till date, rumoured to be the most expensive show in HBO/television history. HBO decided the average ratings at the time (God knows why) did not match the budget so they decided to give it a boot.

As a result, huge plotlines were left hanging, biggest loose end at the end of Season 2 left everyone holding their knobs in anger. Enter pissed off fans who want the show back and beat all HBO execs with their angry knobs. Many petitions have been signed, fans have called and abused HBO to bring it back and a true testement to the show, when both Season 1 and 2 were released on DVD, they flew off the shelves at record numbers due to its retarded popularity and cult like following.

Carnivale may be one of the greatest expressions of art of our time and a story that needs to be told.

Let's bring it back and give it the ending it deserves. I'll leave you with the chilling intro to the first episode, read by Samson, head of the carnival:

"Before the beginning, after the great war between heaven and hell, God created the Earth and gave dominion over it to the crafty ape he called man...and to each generation was born a creature of light and a creature of darkness...and great armies clashed by night in the ancient war between good and evil. There was magic then. Nobility. And unimaginable cruelty. And so it was until the day that a false sun exploded over Trinity, and man forever traded away wonder for reason."



ps; I'll be back...

I rule all day everyday. I rule 100% 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. However, every four years, during a leap year I take one day off to rule 99%. If you want to challenge my ruling capacities, that is the only day to duel me to rule. Otherwise, I go back to regular ruling. Even if I wanted to, I couldn't stop ruling. I could rule everything in two words or less. If you'd like to see me in action, I will rule... all over your face.

This how I do
