Treme Season 4 Episode 2: This City

Treme Season 4 Episode 2: This City

What first struck me about this week’s episode wasn’t anything about its content, but the fact that there hasn’t actually been an episode titled This City before now. Both between the obvious connection with Annie’s song (dedicated this week to Steve Earle’s late Harley), and the thematic significance of the show as a whole, the words “This City” sum up Treme as succinctly as possible. It is appropriate, then, that the phrase was left as an episode title in one of the last few episodes of this criminally under-appreciated show. The second thing that...

Treme Season 4 Episode 1: Yes We Can Can

Treme Season 4 Episode 1: Yes We Can Can

The final season of Treme opening with Obama’s success in the Presidential election was quite fitting in the sense that, for all intents and purposes, this season is the beginning of something new, while at the same time more of the same. As an aside, seeing Obama here really brings home just how much he has aged in a few years. Regardless of one’s political standing, the draining effects brought on by responsibility of that kind must be recognized. Any fan of this show already knows in a vague sense how it will end; it won’t. Episodes will stop airing, but the people and...

TREME Season Four Teaser

TREME Season Four Teaser

Some call it Season 3.5 and others bill it as a Season 4, but either way, the upcoming episodes of TREME premiering on 12.01.13 make up the Final Season. HBO has now started publicity for what will be the final five episodes of the story. Here is a Teaser.     Of course, this clip sets the tone perfectly. It has the kind of heart-felt music that underscores our lives and the images reflect the pains and joys we take. Yes, it is the story of New Orleans and some of its people. It is also about all of us as we all can relate to moments in the emotional journey these lives have depicted....

TREME’s Final Season Premiere Date Is…

TREME’s Final Season Premiere Date Is…

…December 1, 2013 and it will only be five episodes! TREME’s co-creator David Simon said of the New Orleans series that “We are going to be back for a season 3.5. HBO, upon viewing the 10 season-three episodes that we gave them and what we’ve done, they want to see the end of the story. They fought very hard to give us half a loaf. We’re going to take it and run.” In order to see a proper conclusion to the low-rated series (at least compared to the other dramatic series on the network) five episodes are better than nothing. Publicity for the final half-season should surface...

This Just In: TREME Wraps Filming Final Season

This Just In: TREME Wraps Filming Final Season

I ran across an article on a website I thought I’d share; it is on a site for a magazine about Louisiana’s music and culture called Offbeat. It appears that Consulting Editor John Swenson was present as HBO’s TREME wrapped up filming on location in New Orleans. Here is a brief article written 02.13 of what transpired. It is a scene shot on Frenchman Street of yet another musical moment that has infused the series since episode one.       It was a raw and misty late afternoon in February during Mardi Gras. Spotlights illuminated the gloaming Marigny shadows with a...

Treme Season Finale “Tipitina” and Season 4 Predictions

Treme Season Finale “Tipitina” and Season 4 Predictions

I actually watched this episode of Treme and didn’t realize it was the finale until the last 20 minutes.  I sat there wondering why all the storylines were suddenly being wrapped up in a nice little bow for the end of season.  No cliffhangers, no twists, no extending storylines, just quickly running through a little montage.  I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.  On the good side, we won’t have to spend the time in between seasons pondering “What is going to happen to that person next season?”.  Our minds torturing us everyday running through...

Treme “Poor Man’s Paradise”

Treme “Poor Man’s Paradise”

“Poor Man’s Paradise” was an episode in which many of the characters experienced Newton’s Law of Motion which states “for every action there is an equal or opposite reaction”.  Of course I’m not talking “motion” but describing how every character’s actions this season have sparked reactions.  The building of the storylines all season long are starting to pay off with some results.  As the season nears its end, the storylines are really beginning to ramp up the intrigue. The police corruption and abuse post Katrina has always been...

Treme Ep. 27 “Careless Love”

Treme Ep. 27 “Careless Love”

Almost every week when I’m watching Treme, I realize we are watching a microcosm of what is wrong with America.  Seemingly simple problems with simple solutions made difficult by bureaucratic red tape.  This episode had a number of scenes in which this type of problem was shown brilliantly.  This was another episode written by George Pelecanos and leads me to think this guy should be writing episodes for more shows.  He is able to lay out the issue at hand without getting preachy about it ala Newsroom.  There are common sense solutions to these problems but not everything is...

Treme “I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say”

Treme “I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say”

One of the things you cannot avoid when watching Treme is overwhelming sense of despair.  Especially after the first season, you found yourself saying “How did these people deal with this?”  You end up feeling sorry for the characters and not just one character, I mean all of them.  Mostly you feel sorry for the people of New Orleans whom the characters represent.  This is what David Simon wants us to see and feel.  The characters so far this season have been trying to persevere through these hardships and insults to their lives and culture.  This episode was a great example...

Treme “The Greatest Love”

Treme “The Greatest Love”

Last week’s episode, brilliantly put together and well written, made us remember some of the great episodes from season 1.  Especially the intertwined cut scenes of Janette finally accepting the deal to open a new restaurant in New Orleans and Annie going over her new contract with her manager.  Both deals were exciting to watch even though the way they were set up seems like both will end badly.  It also produced a feeling for us viewers that now the ball will start rolling with these storylines.  Unfortunately this flow didn’t continue into this week’s episode. One...

Review: Treme Season 3 Ep. 2 “Saints”

Review: Treme Season 3 Ep. 2 “Saints”

As I started watching this new episode, for a second I thought I was watching Game of Thrones.  The show switched from storyline to storyline very quickly and with 11 storylines it was a bit daunting.   Also when you watch Treme, you know there is going to be musical performances and this episode was certainly music heavy.  At least four of the storylines involve characters who are musicians so it is to be expected.  I, for one love New Orleans style jazz but if you don’t, well you probably won’t like Treme.  The storylines not based on actual events continue to drag but...
