Wonderful! This show deserves a devoted audience.
5 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watched the first three episodes in a row and now we're completely addicted. The Deadwood- like dialogue is funny, raw and literate, and doesn't talk down to it's audience. I totally get the Carnivale connection too - there is a wonderful combination of realism and mysticism in this show, along with the sense that the episodes will always surprise you. It's so refreshing to be challenged by a series that never follows a formula and always makes you laugh. Wonderful characters, great acting (half the cast was on Deadwood) a complete delight. Everyone in my house is in love with JFC. WATCH THIS SHOW! This doesn't deserve to fall into the Brilliant But Cancelled category.
