Storyline

Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne star in "Carnival Row," a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose rich homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing immigrant population struggles to coexist with humans in the grimiest section of the city -- forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate, and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo's standing during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row. As Philo investigates, he reveals a monster no one could imagine. Written by Amazon Studios

Trivia

There are several name references to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Philostrate and Flute come directly from minor characters in the play. The fauns' derogatory title, Puck, is another name for the trickster fairy, Robin Goodfellow. In the flashback, the fairies pray to St. Titania, queen of the fairies. Other names are similar to characters in the play. Egreus is Egeus with an added R. Quill is similar to Quince. Several surnames are compound words like the names of some fairies from the play. Shakespeare: Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Mustardseed. Carnival Row: Stonemoss, Millworthy, Spurnrose, Breakspeare, Longerbane. See more »

Leave politics at the door
31 August 2019 | by ChangoMutneySee all my reviews

Too many reviewers are unable to let go of the real world and enjoy a fantasy steampunk series.

Personally, thoroughly enjoying it so far, a much needed slice of steampunk, well executed. If they only could make Perdido Street Station, I'd die happy!
