After renting almost every episode of HBO's "Carnivale" last year (for some reason Tracy and I never got to the end), I found both seasons for a ridiculously low price at Future Shop just before Christmas, so that became our spousal gift. We're now blasting our way towards the end of season two in a dusty tornado of post-holiday viewing. We loved "The Sopranos" and "Six Feet Under" but there's something about "Carnivale" that gets under your skin. It's a highly detailed story that really demands a second viewing to fully appreciate.

Very attractive (but somewhat flimsy) DVD packaging, by the way.
