To see the world of fairies plunge into destruction and witnessing them massacred does leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. Nonetheless, these very core theme is what draws audience to watch Carnival Row, the shows makes the fantasy world setting into something more realistic and give us a sense of a shared history, while this theme often fail most of the time in filming. The team behind the show managed to make it work.
Despite the wonderful plot, Carnival Row does have their rough edges when it comes to their acting performances. Both Bloom and Delevingne does have their moments where they appear to be uncomfortable when performing together especially while during an intimate scene. Other than that, the cast gave stellar performance and their portrayal of their own character is believable.
Carnival Row may have a bad reception by the professional critics due to the way the show is tackling the political racism. However, I personally love this show even the politics, it is a great reminder of our own history and how far we are now. If you are easily offended by these I suggest ignore this show, otherwise enjoy the dark and eerie outlook of your childhood cartoon world, Peter Pan.
