Meanwhile, Janette (Kim Dickens) prepares to open a new restaurant; Antoine (Wendell Pierce) finds himself being more than just a music teacher;

There's not a weak performance in the bunch.

Never as immediately gripping as The Wire, Treme still had its virtues, which the show's small, but loyal fanbase can fill you in on at length.

I'm sorry to see it go, except that it went out on such a perfect note of bittersweet complexity -- like the culture it celebrates and mourns and suggests will endure anyway, it's something to have been relished even as it's come to a close.

January 2, 2014 Full Review Source: indieWIRE

It's to the credit of the show's creators, David Simon and Eric Overmyer, that these characters have become so familiar and alive in only 30-plus episodes.

Treme has had a bumpier run than might have been expected, but it looks like we may be getting the killer party at the end that the show, and city, deserve.

[Treme brings] back the many fine and occasionally interlocking characters amid a vivid depiction of a town reeling still from hurricane and neglect, but nurtured by its joyous music.

December 2, 2013 Full Review Source:

The show's beauty is not in big moments, or exquisitely written scenes (though it has both), it comes in the pauses between, the semicolons and commas that make up the bulk of many lives, but which TV has trouble giving full heft.

The milieu may be exotic -- the Crescent City really is a world of its own -- but it's the most lifelike show around.

It is, as always, beautifully filmed and patiently assembled. Everyone in it clearly believes in the project (and the city) down to their bones, even if the writers have shortchanged their best actors this time.

A half a loaf is better than none at all. When it's baked by David Simon, Eric Overmyer and George Pelecanos, it's better than most people's full loaf.

December 2, 2013 Full Review Source: HitFix

The New Orleans drama Treme is a demanding and in some ways off-putting show, yet at the same time a warm and sweet one.

Full of intriguing characters, fine actors, music and Big Easy "atmosphere," Treme -- it's pronounced "TreMAY," by the way -- never caught on, and now seems as good a time as any to ask why.

December 2, 2013 Full Review Source: Newsday

Treme bids a fond and tuneful farewell to characters a few of us have come to love and to storylines that went deeply enough into the challenges of rebuilding lives in New Orleans to be considered as much journalism as TV drama.

The final season of Treme, even as the series continues to overflow with the vitality of live music and an ever-evolving regional hash of international cultures, hangs on death.

Even with the occasional ray of hope, Simon's general outlook is too bleak to provide much consolation, either for his characters or for the show's small but loyal audience.
