Heh, I saw him play a surgeon in CSI:NY who may or may not have operated on someone suffering from that 'unwanted limb' syndrome, but I digress. I watched the first season of Carnivale and loved the costuming and mood of the show, but kept wanting some kind of 'resolution' in the story. In the second series, I just went with the flow and didn't expect to fully rationalise the fight between good and evil (from my interpretation, it was not about one of the Devil's staffers versus a Christ-like figure, although symbolisms referred to the situation as though it was). The storyline took many twists and turns, but seemed to inch closer to a resolution and allow the characters to be more honest, rather than simple generate a sense of 'this is deep with dark ambience, but it's not terribly relevant after all'. I'm going to keep an eye on the DVD box set, as the documentary seems to detail how they created the dusty environment and costuming.
