    Keep seeing little teasers for this and I’m very interested. The cast is great. Premise is cool. I hope this is a comeback for Bloom. I felt bad for him when he was in that awful 3 Musketeers movie.

    Looks great. I love that Amazon is going all out with the fantasy genre.

    Same here. And you know why? Because these trailers actually give you a sense of who the characters are and what the premise is. All I got from The Witcher is that some silent brooding guy who looks like Rheagar Targaryen and some girl with a huge wad of chewing tobacco in her mouth have magical powers or something.

    Not much talk about Carnival Row.
    I found it fine. I like steampunk so I liked the visuals, the sets were well crafted.
    Cara Delevine was surprisingly not bad acting wise and a good fit for a pixie ( her face mostly ). Many familiar actors & actresses are also it in.
    The mythology is ok, hearing Tir Na Noc reminded me of my days in DAoC ( it's a fantasy game ).

    Only watched the first episode so far but really digging it. The visuals are stunning and the acting is solid. Cara and Orlando seem like good leads, and Tamsin Merchant plays a good snotty rich character.

    I've watched three and I'm confident I'll watch it through. :) It's off to a great start.

    This is a really solid little show. Easily the best thing have seen Cara Delevine in at least, but I always liked Orlando Bloom as an actor and he really gets to show off his dramatic, acting chops in this which was cool. Loved the visuals and the cinematography of the steam punk inspired world and all the creatures looked legit too. You can definitely tell they put some money into it, and now I'm really curious how they are going to top it with Season 2.
