TV: HBO's 'Treme' Continues to Disappoint

Get a grip with all this nostalgia! My husband and I grew up in New Orleans. Yes, it is an interesting place. And it has lots of charm, but to say that what Treme portrays is daily life in New Orleans is laughable. Impromptu parades may arise occasionally, but I can assure you that daily events they were not! The spirit that is embraced by Treme is born of a romanticism that was kindled more after Katrina than before that horrible event. I can understand creative license, but the show cannot keep its viewers unless there are better story lines and less name dropping. The acting is first rate.... let the story carry the show and use the charm of New Orleans be used as a rich backdrop, not the other way around.
