5.0 out of 5 stars Treme: A Tale Of A City Oct. 22 2012
By Scoopriches TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It will be a long day today, with Word on the Street, followed by the Prime Time Emmies, then the tale of people trying to rebuild a city.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best TV nobody watches Oct. 3 2011
By Sherman
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
David Simon has been responsible for three of the best shows ever seen on TV. The Wire being the best show ever on cable. This one is very close to the Wire in quality. Great Music great cast. It leaves no doubt who's to blame for the lack of caring & compassion (I think there may be a W in his name). Great show with a message that is stil watchable. Simon's other great show was Homicide Life on the Streets. Check all 3 out you won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done! May 8 2011
Format:DVD
This show is great! I guess the people who should really be reviewing this are the people of New Orleans and the Treme neighborhood, but I will anyway. The stories of the different characters trying to rebuild their homes, businesses, culture and lives after the storm are well done and the characters draw you in right away. If they don't get you - the music will.

I loved season one very much. I thought the characters were addicting especially John Goodman.
The music was perfect.
I am really looking forward to season two.

We learned about Treme while vacationing in New Orleans. We bought the first season to find out more about it. We were immediately hooked! The storyline is post Katrina, the impact of the storm and social corruption, through selected people trying to move on with their lives, but all the while presenting us with local music legends and great food. We learned a whole lot and can enjoy memories of our vacation even more. We will definitely go back! Such a great series we bought all seasons of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a wonderful show .... April 13 2014
By Janet Pole TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Oh the music and life and love and food of NOLA is omnipresent in this wonderful tv series.
I have read much about the after-math of Katrina in books but this series presents a brutally honest view that I never knew or understood until watching this show.
Melissa Leo in particular is gobsmackingly awesome ... one of those MUST WATCH shows!

This series so far is just ok. It's obvious the producer also did The Wire by his choice of actors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treme is a "Must See"
This is a great capture of the culture and music of New Orleans in the early 2000s and a documentation of the effects of hurricane Katrina (2005) on the people, even if dramatized... Read more
