After a leisurely debut season, HBO's stunningly creative cable-television series CARNIVALE stepped up the pace in round two of it's allegorical tale of good and evil set against the surreal backdrop of a Depression-era travelling circus. By the beginning of the second season, carnival-roustie-cum- Christ-figure Ben Hawkins (Nick Stahl) has grudgingly accepted his destiny as a "creature of light" while continuing to search for his godlike father, Henry Scudder (John Savage), in a neo- Homeric odyssey that takes him from his demented backwoods clan to an eerily cloying maker of death-masks.
