Katrina revisited
Verified purchase
My son gave me the first series and when i watched the first episode I could not imagine why he thought I would like that, But I watched the 2nd episode, the 3rd, etc. and was thoroughly hooked on the various story lines. So then I ordered and watched the other series and found them fascinating and yet horrible to see first hand what the people of N.O. had to deal with from H. Katrina. I suppose in a lot of ways they are still trying to recover. Other than an over abundance of swear words which I managed to tune out I think anyone would and should watch this. Actual bands were used, actual chefs were in the restaurant scenes. And oh, that wonderful violin wonder, Lucia Micarelli! She put every emotion into her music. There was not nearly enough of that to suit me. I understood she had studied classical music for 7 years but had never before acted. She was a natural. That is not to downgrade any others, they were all grand.

Treme is a great metaphor for New Orleans. This show constantly uses top-notch actors, the best music in the world, architecture, food, politics and everything else that makes New Orleans so crazy to behold. I am not sure how to review this show since I have been to the city so many times and know many of the places/musicians/restaurants that are in the show. It is as close to authentic as actually going there, but you have to go there to "get it". I mean, if you don't know who Kermit Ruffins and Donald Harrison are, how can you really enjoy this show? All I can do is say that if you know who they are, this is sheer bliss, warts and all. If you don't, watch this show and if it speaks to you, get on a plane immediately and go. Life-altering experiences await.

Great show.

I like how the story unfolds this season with multiple plots that keep the show moving. I like how some ex-pats come back and how NOLA and the characters have changed and are changing the way New Orleans will be in the future while holding on to the past. The story line with Annie I like because he musical scenes are really good like all the other scenes with bands and street musicians. Not a super fan of the plot involving police retaliation against the attorney via harassment of the daughter, but overall the season is a winner.

Keeping up standards...

If you enjoyed treme's style over the first two seasons you'll find the quality continues. Without spoiling anything "The big Chief" continues to show how an authentic culture can ensure true dignity. And that, to me, is what makes Treme utterly unique: as an exploration into how the New Orleans culture is authentic and true and dignified. We Americans are generally not threatened by cultural dynamism, but maybe our notions of change and plenty should have a counterpoint. The NOLA culture is the product of a very dynamic process, so it's strange to ask it to stand still, but it's a lot of fun to think about wanting it to go on the way it has been, in the not so distant past, at least for a while longer. When we talk about moving CBGB to Vegas, we can wonder whether we need to look backwards, somewhat, for authenticity.

Wait for it

Treme's third season is an exercise in patience (even compared to its first two). Because the show was renewed for a third and a short fourth season, the third does not have the complete arcs that characterized seasons one and two, and no strong theme emerges. Instead, it plays as a more detached exploration of the lives of the various characters. There also isn't nearly as much new ground explored here; we're mostly sticking with the established characters and settings, the most notable edition being a new character who is basically a muckraking reporter.

However, the third season serves to set up the show's preplanned conclusion in season four, and in that it succeeds. I strongly recommend sticking with it to the end.

GREAT SERIES CONTINUES

If you are looking at reviews...you have completed season one and two...if not do that first. If so you know it is a great series. That said, Im thought season three was the weakest of the three but still excellent TV. More music this season too, and you can't go wrong there. Thjs series on New Orleans after Katrina offers so much...great acting and music, insight on New Orleans and is music, corruption in the city, and people trying to get by in the city. Really, a wonderful, thought provoking series. Loved it HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Let me say first that we know New Orleans reasonably well. Our son moved there not long after Katrina and we visit often, the first time when there were still black X's on houses and whole blocks were sitting abandoned. I thought that the first season was a really good portrayal of NOLA in the first couple of years after the storm. My New Orleans friends concur. As the series progressed into Season II, it was still a pretty good picture. Like all TV series, they have to move the story forward in a dramatic way, so Season III was a little less like reality (IMO). Still, we enjoyed it, and will watch Season IV when it's available on Amazon.

Hey, if you are from NO or wish you were here, this series is a must. But you must start with series one and work your way up or you will miss a lot. Locals will thoroughly enjoy the coded references and music. Those of you with little or no contact with the Crescent City will enjoy the music and the story line but will miss a lot of the coded references but will not be denied the pleasure of a truly great series on a truly great city. I wish the series would go past 4 years but all good things do come to an end.
