Finished watching Carnival Row (2019– )

This steam punk noir manages to weave a murder mystery into a love story, in fact several love stories. It balances out the passion with a heavy dose of political intrigue, that hinges on a nineteenth century xenophobia against the races of mythical creatures who live on Carnival Row. It’s well constructed if a little slow on occasion. Put me in mind of China Miéville’s Bas-Lag series.
