Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
Sometimes we want to slap some of these folks, but more than that we want them to succeed, and their determination to get back on their feet gives "Treme" the potential to show us both the storm and the sun.
A smart, engaging, moving and funny series, one that in many ways is more accessible than its predecessor [The Wire].
This is the kind of TV that viewers ask for but rarely get, driven by characters who are more than the sum of one or two qualities and who harbor depths that are revealed slowly, subtly, and authentically.
This is a spectacular new series, with some stunning performances and gorgeous music. You'll become hooked.
[David] Simon is exquisitely sensitive to the signifiers of insiderness and outsiderness that separate the authentic from the fake, the native from the poseur.
There aren't many shows that have significant cultural importance, and Tremé is among the best of them.
Treme would seem to be quite similar to The Wire: a synoptic portrait of a poor, old, troubled, black-majority American city, expressed through the intertwined unfolding stories of a group of characters. But there are several important differences...
Is "Treme" worth watching? As a history lesson in post-Katrina New Orleans, it absolutely is. It's as good a historical artifact of a certain time and place as you are likely to see.
It was, rather, a subtle, searching appreciation for The City That Care Forgot, mournful and merry in equal measure...
Like The Wire, Treme bravely, deftly and accurately tackled social and economic issues and institutions, such as the city's criminal-justice system, political corruption and public housing...
The kind of television you eventually relax and sink into, enjoying it the way you might enjoy a live concert featuring a line-up of bands you don't recognize but playing in a genre you love.
Audience Reviews for Treme: Season 1
Nov 18, 2020The Goodman turn is a little unearned
Nov 09, 2020Treme is a great snapshot of a tragic time in one of America's iconic cities. I appreciated it even more, having been to NOLA myself. My only critiques would be that it is a little slow and the characters were hard to like.
