  • Its already stinkin'

    1.0
    I loved the first season of Treme, but it simply died somewhere at the beginning of season two. Since then, it is just roting. Nothing happened since John Goodman died. Each and every character is doing the very same thing, back and forth, for almost three seasons. I coped with it during season two and got tired during three, but now Im just fed up. Always the same thing, always the same dilemmas, always the same subplots. When you think something will finally happen with someone, they put it right back at the start of the same arch and start over THE SAME THING. After watching the first episodes of season four Im giving up, its everything repeating all over again.moreless

  • Awesome series - why aren't you watching it?

    9.5
    If it hasn't been stated about a 107 times already: Treme is not The Wire. Sure, it has mostly the same creative team and they share a few actors, but while The Wire has the media-sexy drug thing going, Treme tells you about... musicians? Chefs? Barkeepers? Sure, there's the aftermath of Katrina, but that's in the background.Having just watched The Wire for the nth time before starting with Treme, it's obvious that the series continues in the footsteps of it in terms of the high quality of everything: the absolutely superb acting, the sharp writing, the great directing - it's all there. There are plenty of characters (not quite the 60 something there were in the latter parts of The Wire, but enough), and every one of them has something going for them. The plotlines might appear to be non-existing at first - how much can you tell about a guy preparing a costume for a parade? - but that's deceiving. Beneath the surface there's plenty of going on. It's like following everyday life, except this one is interesting.And did I mention the music yet? I've always considered myself as a rock fan, and never had much interest in jazz or blues or anything that can be played with a trombone. But my goodness, the first episode of Treme managed to alter my music taste. Much like a big part of The Wire was the lack of music, here the music plays a huge part. And it's spot on every time.While Treme is clearly lacking a large target audience, I can't but recommend it to everyone interested in good television series. Just have an open mind (and ears) and start watching. Now.moreless
  • Difficult to Get Into

    6.5
    Created by the same team that brought us The Wire I was certainly looking forward to watching Treme. I have now watched the entire first season and Treme does reproduce much of what made The Wire so great namely a well written script, interesting well realised characters and fantastic acting.



    As with The Wire, Treme can also be slightly slow in places but, where as The Wire always had the constant conflict between and amongst the criminals and law enforcement to retain viewer interest, there is no over arching story within Treme that is able to recreate what kept me hooked throughout the five seasons. I almost hate myself for saying this but I found it incredibly difficult to get into this series and, despite all the positives I mentioned, I will be unlikely to tune into the second season.moreless
  • Too slow

    5.0
    Interesting idea, placed in an interesting setting that a lot of viewers would like to find out more about. The acting was mostly good and casting was successful, however the plotlines really failed to grab me and I found the whole show extremely slow and not interesting enough to keep watching. It has potential and maybe it will be in better shape after a few episodes but judging from the pilot it has failed to captivate me in the way that many other shows have.

    I must give it an extra point for music though as it was quite wonderful and should be acknowledged.moreless
