Editorial Reviews

New Orleans, 25 months later. Crime and corruption are up, culture is being trampled, and the people who matter – the workers, families and dreamers who still live here – have had enough. HBO’s drama series Treme revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other familiar New Orleans characters who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city. In Season 3, which takes place from Fall 2007-Spring 2008, rampant crime and government ineptitude continue to cripple the city’s recovery, with outside profiteers looking to cash in on short-term gains. The series’ focus is still on ordinary people, but they no longer accept their lack of influence on the institutions that have controlled the city. Diminished by grief and loss, but fed up with incompetence and graft among police and city officials, the characters in Treme begin to make inroads in demanding that their music, art and well-being be protected. Through a murder prosecution that unites several players, Treme will also explore the city’s handling of justice, schools and politics, while charting the inspiring, grassroots efforts to preserve the individuality of this most iconic of American cities.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's All Connected February 25, 2013
'Treme', the third season, brought the characters, Hurricane Katrina, the plot lines of each person together to show the connections. We started out in season one with the after affects of Katrina, up close and personal. The hurricane smashed the city, the families, and lives of it's inhabitants. Season one told their stories, season two told of their efforts to reclaim, and, now, season three shows us how they are all connected.

Treme is a series based on New Orleans musicians. It brings us a series of characters who are musicians or work with them, or have a place where musicians congregate. Music is the basis of the parade. When I think of New Orleans, I think of the parades, and 'Treme' three is a parade. A journalist shows up to help a lawyer follow the leads to a murderer, a down and out former addict musician finds his way to sobriety, a chef moves back from New York to her own restaurant, a bar owner tries to find her rapist, a young student wants to find her dreams, a good cop battles corruption, a favored musician receives a cancer diagnosis,and a trombonist teaching music at a school tries to find his way to the big time. A lot going on, and all of these characters have a subtle connection to each other. One or the other of these people find themselves embroiled in new situations and discover Katrina was just a jumping place for life.

Season three seemed to make the connections of what was going wrong and what could change to make lives better. The dreams that were realized were not always the thrill of a lifetime. And, as ever, the music was what held this series together. The music of New Orleans is riveting and life affirming. The beat and the bass and the mood it sets is New Orleans. We had some closure of troubles and doors still left open. We have Season Four to come with five more episodes. I am so looking forward to Treme, the finale.

Highly Recommended. prisrob 02-25-13

5.0 out of 5 stars O Yeah! December 29, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have followed Treme from the first season til the third. I have enjoyed the touching storyline that is told from person to another. It is amazing how the people of New Orleans have managed to work through their problems, trials, disappointments, and tragedies. They have tried to overcome many obstacles and adversities. That is what some of the people have tried to do since their devasting ordeal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The cast in this series are extremely talented in their craft as they have tried to portray the good, the bad, the pain, and the up and down struggles of some of the residents of New Orleans. Bravo cast and crew. Press on citizens of New Orleans, change is gonna come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic May 4, 2013
I will not include any spoilers in this.
The third season continues the excellence of this show.
Anyone who saw The Wire and enjoyed it must see Treme, not only because it shares many of the same production crew and some actors, but because it is better than The Wire.
It draws together different strands of society and interweaves them in an intelligent, exciting and poignant storyline about post-Katrina New Orleans.
Slicker, more sophisticated and better acted than so much of what else is about.
The (Jazz and Folk) music is first class too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough of this series! June 23, 2013
I have enjoyed the Treme series from day one to the present. I'm waiting anxiously for the final season to finally air! I guess I love the show so much because of my deep affection for the city of New Orleans as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes me hungry! November 30, 2013
By D
I just finished the whole season. Makes me want to pack up and go back visit New Orleans, again! Been thinking about beignets and going to all the famous restaurants that I haven't gone to, yet! Want to eat good food and see all those New Orleans style houses! Like all the footage and how they show the Columns Hotel. The violin girl's character takes off. Love that d.j. and love his song! This show is well-done and worth it just see all the footage! I, now, want to eat crawfish ravioli, no matter what our female chef says!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wait for it March 4, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Treme's third season is an exercise in patience (even compared to its first two). Because the show was renewed for a third and a short fourth season, the third does not have the complete arcs that characterized seasons one and two, and no strong theme emerges. Instead, it plays as a more detached exploration of the lives of the various characters. There also isn't nearly as much new ground explored here; we're mostly sticking with the established characters and settings, the most notable edition being a new character who is basically a muckraking reporter.

However, the third season serves to set up the show's preplanned conclusion in season four, and in that it succeeds. I strongly recommend sticking with it to the end.

Great illustration of New Orleans post Ktrina. Music is awesome and you become involved with the characters lives. We have all 4 seasons and do not want Treme to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treme is an exceptional series.
The music in each season (we have all of them) is worth as much as the related drama. We only wish the series had gone beyond 4 seasons.

Jeez. what's the holdup on this. I bought the first two seasons and I would like to see the rest of it. After a certain point, I'm not going to care any longer.
