I happen to love the Carrier episodes. They showcase an utterly intriguing and also utterly alien era of history that not too many movies or TV series have touched upon - the pre-WWII, pre-Titanic era world, coming at the end of the Victorian era and the beginning of the age of cars, the last gasp of the Old World of European Monarchies and the horse and buggy. It's a sort of forgotten era, and the last 'innocent' time in world history (before mustard gas and flamethrowers and modern warfare).
