Carnival Row, now streaming on Amazon Prime, is an ambitious TV project that can easily be seen as a Game of Thrones replacement candidate. It seems to have all of the ingredients needed to find an audience in the hole left by Game of Thrones, especially considering that Amazon managed to beat several other contestants to market — Netflix's The Witcher, for example, isn't launching until late 2019.
In the first part of this review, I told you that Carnival Row doesn't have to be the next Game of Thrones to succeed. At the time, I had five episodes under my belt out of the eight of the first season. And I had high hopes for the remaining three. But having finished the first season of Carnival Row, I'm now convinced that the whole thing is an expensive miss for Amazon. Yes, the company renewed it for a second season, but it's not something I'm interested in watching more of after the disappointing first season.
