Yes, rebuilding a city. Not every day you get to do that Herculean task. But the HBO television drama Treme spotlights the efforts of various characters trying to bring life back to New Orleans. And it is no easy feat.
Steering this tale for us is show creator David Simon, a former reporter who wrote the true crime book Homicide which became the basis for the fantastic television series of the same name. Simon reapplied his genius for tackling complex drama, detailed characters, and urban issues onto the critically acclaimed show The Wire. Now he is bringing us Treme, entering its third season tonight.
Focusing on the Treme section of the city of New Orleans some three months after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, and how the proud citizens come back and regain their sense of self while reclaiming their city. While the storm may have dealt a nasty horrific blow to this great cultural icon, it is the government ineptitude which mangles it so much more.
It is never implied at all that New Orleans was once a perfect haven for one and all, but it was a place called home for these people. And as they pick up their existence everyone is in different situations and mindsets, with progress, or lack thereof, being a constant theme. When one man fixes up his own plumbing while rebuilding his home, a city official orders him to take it all out. He is not a licensed plumber, eventhrough he knows what he is doing. Another storyline features a woman trying to get repair work done for her mother’s place. But the contractor is unreliable at best, possibly criminal even.Read more ›
