    By episode seven (written by Chris Rose & Micah Kibodeaux, story by David Simon & Chris Rose, directed by Tim Robbins), "Treme" is in the development stage of its dramatic construction. By this I don’t mean that executives are getting their paws all over it – rather...

    'Treme' Season 3, Ep. 6: Davis' Good Women and Magnum Opus

    Davis (Steve Zahn) is a fool, more profane than holy, not without talent, but a fool nonetheless. He loses good women the way others misplace good umbrellas – thoughtlessly if with the best of intentions of not doing so this time again...

    'Treme' Season 3, Ep. 5: Race, Death & David Simon

    For better or worse, episodic television is about expectations. Zombies are going to make an appearance in "Walking Dead" as surely as every episode of "Law and Order" will be split into two halves. Each series teaches us how to watch it, how to take it on its own terms...

    'Treme' Season 3, Ep. 4: The Talent Passport

    The culture that may be the saving grace for the characters of "Treme" can sometimes be impenetrable. That’s the thing about tight systems – they are as resistant to strangers as they are to change. In "Treme"’s artistic worlds, the necessary passport is talent.

    'Treme' Season 3, Ep. 2: A Deep Specificity of Culture

This is obviously well before Katrina, but even then, New Orleans was in need of support. Cajun culture was having its brief moment in the sun, but the city and sta...

    Why 'Treme' is the Greatest Show You Can Never Get Your Friends to Watch

    "Treme" has from the beginning defied easy descriptions and hooks. Like co-creator David Simon's best known series "The Wire," "Treme" is about a place more than it is about any one character or main story -- but unlike that crime drama, it doesn't start with something as surface approachable as the...

    'Treme' To End After Fourth, Shortened Season

    While it hasn't garnered the popularity of other HBO shows like "Boardwalk Empire" or "Girls," or even the variety of semi-controversy and chatter of "The Newsroom," David Simon's "Treme" had lots of critical love, albeit a small, but devoted following...
