Carnivale:The end of the neo-gothic explosion

CNN has announced the death of a proud institution. Carnivale, the only artfully done period piece TV fantasy epic whose main antagonist voices Sponge Bob's boss, has been cancelled by HBO. Carnivale was most likely axed to make room for more shows with white teens of questionable social habits getting into trouble in our modern suburbanite culture that is only identifiable to the amazingly wealthy whose narcissism demands that they replicate their own fucked up lives and call it entertainment, G-d almighty I hate Post-Modern TV.
I Really shouldn't complain Arrested Development and the Office both made it for new seasons, but a hole in my heart once filled with the adventures of two crazy prophets, will remain open until it is filled with plaque.
