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
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.
which was abandoned and cast an indifferent hand by the Bush administration during the storm. Remember, G.W. was on vacation and Katrina was obviously not a big enough concern for him to come back to Washington and man the helm to help the people of N.O..David Simon shows how N.O. then becomes a land grab, while many of the dislocated residents struggle to come back,
only to find their homes demolished without their consent or knowledge. This is not the least of the injustices heaped upon the
people of N.O. as we also hear the many stories of police intimidation and violence against the citizens it is supposed to protect.
Through it all though, we are shown the magnificent music and culture which is N.O. as well. The food and of course America's
gift to the world, " creative improvised democratic music". A must see!
