I thought the first series was outstanding - and reviewed it accordingly. When the second came out - well, I thought that the impact couldn't be repeated. I was wrong

I am only on episode 4 so far (and will come back to update as I get further into it) but this is triumphant television. But different. The first series focussed so much on the immediate aftermath - this is a few months on. Same characters (of course not the lamented John Goodman) but all the others are there - with some new faces.

This shows a different New Orleans - months after the flood - when the powers that be and the opportunists have started to seize what they can from the wrecked city , when the police have got tired and frustrated, the rebuilding is taking place - but who makes the money and where are the original residents?

Fascinating - and great performances as before. As a testament to how good it is - I actually really care about the characters and what happens to them. Yes, I know they are actors - but I do feel they are truly represenative of what took place. (Except Steve Zahn - still don't like him - but that's me!) And now he is in a relationship with my favourite violinist. OK - it will work out in the next few episode. More later.

But this is great stuff!!

Update: OK I have now seen the complete series. I think it is just - only just - better than the first. I admit to crying - not much but enough to cause embarrassment - which didn't happen in the first series. Steve Zahn is almost - only almost - becoming likeable. All the characters are developing and you do get this sense they are real people - a tribute to the scripts, the production and the actors.

I don't know why people aren't raving about Treme; I can't remember anything so ambitious and cinematic in scope, feel and execution on prime time TV.

It's maybe one of those shows that's not for everyone, but for those who love it, it *really* hits home (look at the reviews!) The viewing figures (especially in the UK) have been worse than poor, but I cherish every moment we get to spend with these characters and in this universe.

Season 2 is probably less "immediate" than the first season; the total number of main characters (and thus the number of fragmented, interconnected storylines) sees a net increase, we start to delve into yet more insular and confusing scenes (we're introduced to the worlds of New York haute cuisine, the (bent) New Orleans Police Department, and (bent) Louisiana politics, for starters), and with two major and extremely disturbing plot turns to shock viewers - on top of the now customary thick trowelling-on of layers and layers of New Orleans cultural references, without exposition or explanation - well, it's not necessarily an easy watch.

But equally, there are some beautiful moments here to rival anything I've ever seen on TV before. For a show like this it's hard to pick out highlights or even episodes - but the Mardi Gras episode is astonishing by any standards, while the closing five minutes of the last episode is the greatest montage epilogue scene since Three Colours: Blue and had me in roughly the same amount of tears.

I show this show to friends and get no response beyond a shrug, and yet it's by far my favourite show on TV right now, possibly ever. By far. This may not be for you - it's possibly the biggest "try before you buy" there's ever been, and I don't know that you'd get anything out of this without watching Season 1 - but I treasure it.

"We got magic, good and bad
Make you happy or make you real sad
Get everything you want, lose what you had
Down here in New Orleans"
Dr John

'Treme' HBO's magnificent season one, introduced us to the New Orleans of post-Katrina, the music, the people, the problems, the lives of the everyday people trying to make it work. In Treme's second season we see and really feel how the natives live and die.

'Treme' season two moves to the lives of the musicians, the businesses trying to thrive and into the police stations and politicians pockets. The regulars like Antoine Batiste, played by Wendell Pierce, find themselves trying to rebuild their lives. In his case, he is a trombonist and works in the local school band by day and in the clubs by night. Terry Colson, played by David Morse, is a detective in the police department, where he feels out the greed and graft of his colleagues. Melissa Leo, plays Toni, the local lawyer who fights for her clients and now finds herself trying to help her daughter, Sofia. Sofia, played by India Ennenga, who is reacting to a tragic loss, has become the teenager with rebellion andresentment. Chef Janette, played by Kim Dickens has moved to New York City to try and ply her wares in the big time. Professional trumpeter Delmond, played by Rob Brown also moved to NYC to find his profession.

'Treme' season two looks at the day-to-day journey of its people. A lot going on in the second season. In every episode there are surprising finds. I became involved in the characters lives, and their struggles. Ladonna, played by Khandi Alexander, has a personal tragedy that leads to more grief. There is so much personal grief and trauma that all of the crinme in New Orleans takes its toll.
