Product Description

From David Simon, creator of The Wire comes Treme. Treme returns for a second season, set in post-Katrina New Orleans, chronicling the rebuilding of a unique American culture after historic devastation. Treme refers to one of New Orleans' oldest neighbourhoods, a historically important source of African-American music and culture.

From Amazon.co.uk

You won't find many television series whose defining event occurred before the first episode of the first season. Then again, there aren't many, if any, series like HBO's Treme. Created by writer-producers David Simon (of The Wire) and Eric Overmyer, this show has as its driving force, its raison d'être, Katrina, the hurricane that decimated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in 2005. The debut season began a couple of months after the storm passed through, leaving misery and chaos in its wake; the first of 11 episodes in this, the second season, starts about a year after that. Most of the action still centers around NOLA, where the locals are continuing to pick up the pieces and get on with their lives in a city now plagued with violence and disorder. Some of those who left are returning, but some may be gone for good (several scenes throughout the season take place in New York City). Some are trying to rebuild their homes (which means the endless wait for federal funds continues); others, hewing to a mantra that "no disaster should go to waste," include venal businessmen looking to capitalize on the city's pain by rebuilding New Orleans "properly." And as one character puts it, "Everybody is out of their minds."

As before, there are numerous characters and story lines to keep track of. Trombonist Antoine Batiste (Wendell Pierce) takes a job teaching music to schoolkids while also putting together a hot new band, the Soul Apostles. His former wife, bar owner LaDonna (Khandi Alexander), spends much of the season suffering from the effects of a brutal assault. Chef Janette Desautel (Kim Dickens) now lives and plies her trade in Manhattan, while her former boyfriend, DJ and aspiring rapper-music exec Davis McAlary (Steve Zahn), has taken up with up-and-coming fiddler Annie Tee (Lucia Micarelli). Activist lawyer Toni Bernette (Oscar winner Melissa Leo) tries to get to the bottom of a killing that may have involved police misconduct, while daughter Sofia (India Ennenga) struggles to adapt to life without her dad, who died in the previous season. Part of the show's appeal is the fact that these folks and the others whose story lines we follow are not superheroes or world-beaters; they're just people dealing with life's daily, if not exactly ordinary, vicissitudes. But as before, it's the music that remains the show's soul and constant heartbeat, whether it's provided by regulars like Antoine, Annie, and trumpeter Delmond Lambreaux (Rob Brown), who's trying to simultaneously update and honor the traditional New Orleans sound, or guest artists including John Hiatt and Shawn Colvin. You might tune in for the writing and acting (both excellent), but in the end, it's the sounds of Treme that will keep you coming back. --Sam Graham

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.

"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.
