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.
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.
