"We got magic, good and bad
Make you happy or make you real sad
Get everything you want, lose what you had
Down here in New Orleans"
Dr John

'Treme' HBO's magnificent season one, introduced us to the New Orleans of post-Katrina, the music, the people, the problems, the lives of the everyday people trying to make it work. In Treme's second season we see and really feel how the natives live and die.

'Treme' season two moves to the lives of the musicians, the businesses trying to thrive and into the police stations and politicians pockets. The regulars like Antoine Batiste, played by Wendell Pierce, find themselves trying to rebuild their lives. In his case, he is a trombonist and works in the local school band by day and in the clubs by night. Terry Colson, played by David Morse, is a detective in the police department, where he feels out the greed and graft of his colleagues. Melissa Leo, plays Toni, the local lawyer who fights for her clients and now finds herself trying to help her daughter, Sofia. Sofia, played by India Ennenga, who is reacting to a tragic loss, has become the teenager with rebellion andresentment. Chef Janette, played by Kim Dickens has moved to New York City to try and ply her wares in the big time. Professional trumpeter Delmond, played by Rob Brown also moved to NYC to find his profession.

'Treme' season two looks at the day-to-day journey of its people. A lot going on in the second season. In every episode there are surprising finds. I became involved in the characters lives, and their struggles. Ladonna, played by Khandi Alexander, has a personal tragedy that leads to more grief. There is so much personal grief and trauma that all of the crinme in New Orleans takes its toll.

One of my favorite shows of all time. People who gripe about lack of specific plot development just don't understand that the show's creators are just trying to create a tapestry. Interwoven layers looking into the lives of the characters... Smart intelligent writing and brilliant acting.

David Simon's "Treme" is simply the best dramatic series currently on TV. Period. The second season continues the story of New Orleans with its mosaic of characters from musicians, chefs, chiefs and carpetbaggers looking to make a quick buck from the Big Easy's misfortunes caused by Katrina. If you require loads of explosions, buckets of blood and a car chase ever five minutes this well written program is Not for you. "Treme" is like a great American novel with its many characters and layers that gives the viewer a Dickensian look at one of America's greatest cities, New Orleans. While there is plenty of drama (The Danziger Bridge killings, street crime and City Hall backroom deals) it is the music and the musicians that are consistently the focus in this outstanding series.

As another New Orleanian who struggled through Katrina and its aftermath, I disagree with the reviewer who says this series depicts life in New Orleans as boring! The subject matter is too close to home for me to speak for other parts of the country, but for me, the 2nd season is as gripping as the first. Each episode surprises me with at least one or two scenes that take my breath away or give me goose bumps as I relive an event I had pushed under the surface. A deceptively mundane example is when Toni's colleague says she is leaving the city, about 18 months after Katrina; I had an instant and visceral flashback to the increasing depression I would feel when another family I knew gave up and left after having been back. There are still plenty of reminders of why the city is worth continuing to stay and rebuild, but overall the city at large seemed to be sinking into depression at this point. The Mayor, the police, violent crime, drug overdoses and back-room deals dealing away a whole neighborhood to build a new hospital when repairing the old ones would have been better for everybody except the developers and the politicians - all of these are touched on.

My only real criticism at this point is the supplemental audio commentary. It is supposed to be about the music, but they skip over some important musical scenes and, like Delmond's New York friends, they make inane cliche-ridden comments on the events of the time; they even make mistakes about the plot line. These guys should stick to filling in the facts about the music.

Treme is one of the best things on TV these days. Just catching up with Seasons 1 and 2. How come I didn't hear about this before? There seems to be plenty of advertising for shows with lots of violence like Boardwalk Empire, etc. but not nearly as much promotion for intelligent drama such as Newsroom and Treme. Kudos to HBO producers.

Being from New Orleans and living though Katrina, this series is special. I do not suscribe to HBO. I loved the first season and couldn 't wait for the second set of DVD's. Took a LONG time to get here.
Looking forward to the third season. Has become one of my all time favorite series.
