Amazon’s Carnival Row Holds Potential But Requires Originality

Ever since the origin of the fantasy adventure saga of Game of Thrones in HBO, its competing streaming channels have been searching for similar contents. After observing the popularity of mythology-based television shows, Amazon has been trying for a long time to give similar content to its fans. The Prime Video streaming facility, therefore, is trying its best to come up with a tale combining the epic arc of both Lord of the Rings, as well as The Wheel of Time. Since both these aforementioned tales have been big hits, thus the future prospect seems very promising for the growth of Amazon entertainment services.

It has been found out that the name of the series is Carnival ow, and Amazon shall be releasing its first season featuring eight episodes, starting from August 30. Though the plot is intricate and full of character developments, however right from the first episode it becomes evident that the writers are trying their best to copy the Game of Throne style. As per the plotline, Carnival Row is set in a timeline of the 1800s giving an alternate scenario on what if European forces rose to their prime and had set up their colonial empires in the further western parts than its eastern conquers in real life.

Orlando Bloom who had garnered praises previously for his roles in Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings (Who can forget Legolas!) has been cast as Rycroft Philostrate, an inspector. Orlando has been paired against the newcomer Vignette Stonemoss (previously acted in Suicide Squad). The story deals with how they meet each other during the war period and the gradual budding romance between them. Though the love story seems pretty promising, however, it shall need more than GOT inspirations to make it unique. If anything, the classic viewers wish some originality, not an adaptation.
