From the creators of The Wire comes a new series about adversity and the human spirit, set in New Orleans, in the aftermath of the greatest man-made disaster in American history. Welcome to Treme.

The premier episode, "Do You Know What it Means", is a work of art. It will easily bear repeated watching because of its outstanding writing and masterful use of the indigenous music.

Not to mention the great acting, many levels of meaning, clever cameos and true-to-life subplots. And most of all: a major media production has finally "got it" about New Orleans, and got it right!

The entire series is "a love letter to New Orleans".

I just finished watching the last episode of this first season of "Treme." I picked up the Season 1 box based on recommendations alone, and the fact that I've enjoyed other HBO series. I'm near speechless. I can't believe how deeply this series got under my skin. The first few episodes, beautifully crafted as they are, didn't grab me in the way other outstanding cable shows (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, etc.) have done. I stayed with it, though, and I'm glad I did. By halfway into the season, I started feeling the characters and plot lines big time, and by this final episode, I wish it didn't have to end. I'm sure others here have raved about the performances, the music, the stunning cinematography, and all that. It's true: the series is worth every penny of the admittedly pricey box set. Ultimately, though, "Treme" is more than the sum of its parts. It captures something that ordinary words can't, similar to the way a poem can't be reduced to a linear narrative or second-hand description. You have to be in it to get it. But give yourself to this show, give it your time and your attention, and it pays off like no other series I've ever seen.

I loved the series. The New Orleans Blues and Jazz music woven throughout the series was fantastic. It was especially interesting as many real and famous musicians were used in the story. The individual characters are interesting and varied. John Goodman was a hoot! Khandi Alexander (CSI: Miami 2002-2009) was really strong, but her stomach here was not. Very different from CSI. Musicians Trombone Shorty, Elvis Costello, and John Boutte, to name but a few, were great. Also the racial mix was a strength to the series and the reality of the real New Orleans and story of Hurricane Katrina.

I especially found the graphics during the credits roll interesting. Who would of thought that mold and fungus stains on walls, floors, and ceilings could look like art. Being interested also in biology and photography, I found the house mold interesting to look at, to itself artistic, even though it is often a serious health hazard. A great idea for a photo project: someone should photograph the mold stains of New Orleans with Ultraviolet light (Black Light). Many molds are UV fluorescent!

Anyway, it is a fantastic series, can't wait for Season Two and for this DVD set to be available. The only downer for me was the latter part of the season's final episode got a bit busy and confusing -- not their best work. Seems like the producer, director, and writers did not really want to do a season finale, eliminating some characters, but just keep going with the story lines into the next season. Wish there were a bit more about the foods of New Orleans and the Creole / Cajun South. But then you can't really taste food on TV.

There hasn't been a show on TV that has intertwined music and drama as well-ever-as "Treme."

And, BTW, it IS coming back for a second season next year. HBO renewed the show the day after it premiered.

Thanks to a friend sending me videos of this show from the States, I was able to enjoy this series, and am looking forward to it continuing. Very interested in buying the season 1 dvds, but am worried about the music used in the show. One of the things I really enjoyed was the music, and I hope that the dvd release will have the exact same soundtrack as what was broadcast. Have been disappointed before by a dvd movie that had some of the songs changed due to copyright problems. I also hope there are some good extras included on the dvds, maybe some more music. At any rate, looking forward to watching this again on dvd.

This is certainly one of the most ambitious television series in years, not just for the attempt to deal with post-Katrina New Orleans, but the incredible scope of feelings and emotions and music that at times overwhelm these episodes. Of course we all know that David Simon and Eric Overmyer are capable of great things, after giving us The Wire and The Corner. However, given that their roots are in Baltimore, you might think that New Orleans is a bit of a stretch for them. Not at all, as it turns out. Thanks to some very thoughtful research, a great appreciation for the city, and the Faubourg Treme in particular, they have produced one of the most insightful television shows of this generation.

The series is broken up over ten episodes with the first and last episodes directed by the incomparable Agnieszka Holland. She seems to capture the theme of the show the best, maintaining a looser style and letting the music carry the episodes. Other directors like Ernest Dickerson (Right Place, Wrong Time) and Anthony Hemingway (All on a Mardi Gras Day) tend to focus more specifically on certain characters. They all bring their unique brand of storytelling to the series, principally written by Simon and Overmyer.

The acting is a little uneven. The stories pretty much revolve around a nucleus of key characters, not much unlike Northern Exposure.
