I believe the second episode is on my cable about now. "After the Ball is Over" is the name. I made it through many parts of the first episode and it was o.k. I got sidetracked by some thing or some what ever.

So -

I did see that creepy sort pouring water over sugar like a drunken sailor. Not to take it too seriously, BUT, HBO may further push absinthe into a creepy, cult-ish scene. I don't want to be part of it.

At least the sugar dissolved this time, but they still made a freakin' mess with the water.

It reminds me quite a bit of a show that I'm still missing quite dearly, "Millenium". And thank God they didn't have Lodz burn the sugar cube! I would have lost a lot of respect.!

I liked Millenium alot too. Its hard to find television worth watching. Let alone a show that *makes* you watch it.

I find the contrast between the GREEN color of the unwatered absinthe...kinda garish and unnatural, and the lovely subtle cloudy jadelike louche to be interesting. HOW'D they manage to start with Mari Mayans mixed with mud and end up with a louched Jade clone. AMAZING!

Well, I have held on to the idea that paying $50+ for the ability to watch freakin TV is ludicrous, so I don't have HBO...BUT, I have been hanging around my friend's pad on Sunday just to see everything from 7pm on.

I think Carnivale is one of the best new shows right now. Some say it's slow, but me likey.

I just like the fact that Hawkins (Nick Stahl) is the kid from "Bully" and he's been in a couple other things. And how about Samson (Michael J. Anderson)...I remember him from "Twin Peaks".

The bottle containing the bright green liquid is pretty cool...I hope he doesn't burn himself since he's all blind. You know he wants to light it up. censored2.gif

Now that "Dead Like Me" has gone onseasonal hiatus, "Carnivale is without doubt my favorite show. No matter how many roles Clancy Brown gets he'll always be the Kurgan to me! "Nuns, no sense of humor!!!" I'm waiting for him to have a run in with the ultra creepy Absinthe drinking dude, and indulge in that glowing green chimera himself. Oh the horror! The show's not slow to me just thoughtfully surreal, and almost "time out of time" Like Stephen King meets Steinbeck meets Dali meets Felini...well you get the idea.......

I always think of Clancy Brown as the "Kurgan" also!

Look, the reverand is "The Kurgan!" His boss is Papa Walton! My kids think I'm nuts when I blurt out such things.

Cheri, you are truly a woman after my own heart! Ralph Waite WILL always be John Walton to me as well...and what could be more sureal than the stubbornly non church going Papa Walton mixing with the Kurgan as the reverand from hell. This has the potential to become one of the all time cult favorites. Oh that reminds me...it's on in another couple of hours. Time to (sadly) finish off the last ofmy Emile Sapin in preparation...It's beginnning to feel like Carnivale IS part of a new absinthe ritual! Well it's better than lighting the damned sugar cubes...

To answer the question of how the color change is so dramatic from the bottle to the louche, I would say that they are using Gert Strands Concentrate.

That stuff produces an emerald green absinthe that has a louche of light blue/green.

Thanks Goanna. I'd never heard of that concentrate, but it probably does solve the mystery!
