I’m with you on Carnival Row. It’s my “treadmill viewing” this week and I was thinking this just last night. I’m only up to episode 3 and I’m debating on whether or not to go to 4.
Grimdark isn’t really my choice of genre so that’s part of it. I think another part of it is the “in your face” quality of the bigotry. It feels pretentious, self-conscious. Painted with a brush that’s just a couple of sizes too large in a color that doesn’t fit the palette.
Maybe it’s the writer in me that prefers a more subtle approach and I’m not appreciating the – perhaps necessary – bludgeon. Doesn’t mean it’s “bad.” Just that it’s not my preference.
That’s EXACTLY where I am! And yesssss…. the bigotry/immigration theme is so agenda-heavy. My head is starting ache from being hit with the clue bat.
Also, agree on the gore – it’s pretty over the top.
Great podcast as always.
