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.

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.

Made by the maker of "The Wire" this product boasts. But it looks like the people who spearheaded the series were in charge of producing the credits for The Wire. Treme is an okay show, but it is an entirely different show and appeals to a niche crowd. Don't think that liking one will translate well.

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.

Really loved this HBO series and hated to see it finish at the end of Season 4. The camerawork in the first episode of Season One was stunning! The characters were wonderful, well-acted, and the storylines well crafted. Very hard to choose a "favourite" character ----- LaDonna? Batiste? The Chief? Annie? The huge variety of live music with real musicians was amazing! Lucia Micarelli's talent on the violin is over-the-top! Maybe one day they'll do a follow-up along the lines of the final episode where they projected into the future and what each of the main characters would be up to after one year.

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.
