Amazing series!

This is a great series! The characters are endearing, the cinamatography is awesome, and the storyline is enthralling.

A great TV show

What a delightful series! Well, as delightful as a show about the results of a tragic event can be. David Simon's characters, fully researched and brought to life (as in The Wire and Homicide: Life on the Street), is fantastic, and the actors do an amazing job.

The show opens in the Treme, an area in New Orleans, three months after Hurricane Katrina hit. The Treme is music-rich and culturally diverse, which makes for some lively characters and a stellar soundtrack. The show focuses on a core group of characters as they attempt to rebuild their lives in a broken city.

While watching you know that the show itself is just fiction, but thinking of what really happened in New Orleans after Katrina, well, it's sad. I was reminded of the book "Zeitoun" by Dave Eggers, which is the true story of man who stayed in the storm, helped others, and suffered greatly.

Nonetheless, highly recommend.

(And no, it's not The Wire. But there are some actor crossovers.)
