From what I`ve read, it sounds awesome. That trailer is a bit shit, but looks like they have stepped up the production quality.

Dominic West, in a Good Weekend interview last year, said that he thinks it will pwn The Wire.

Big fan of David Simon. I wonder how he`d go doing a movie.

sceptical, i liked the street stories. this looks like its going to be about relationships and the layers, 'i have a complex relationship with my father/ ex- wife/ friend etc. thats not enough for me, i want to see something new, and the new orleans jazz scene isnt enough for me.

i imagine this is going to be a slow burner, we'll see though. cant imagine ill buy it as soon as it come out.

I gotta say I enjoyed it, but I'm wondering whether it's going to have the same sort of emotional rides that The Wire has, just because this seems to be more of a "slice of life" type show, rather than some of the life & death type stuff that was dealt with in Baltimore.

Actually, just realised I only watched the first half of the episode, still got 30 minutes to go. Will watch the last part of it tonight.

John Goodmans character was great.

I thought it was fucking brilliant, they were doing alot of character dev just like they had to at the start of the wire, so I imagine it will take a while for shit to start happening. The subject matter actually interests me more than that of the wire, so this could be some epic tv.

Midway through this episode I became acutely aware that I am going to experience the wire comedown again. Good tv comes at a hefty price.

Steve Zahns character is awesome and his song was in my head all day today.

Damn straight, I told someone that this show is better than the wire, I'd had a few beers at the time so maybe I was exagerrating. But very much into this show, you know a show is good when the theme music gives you goosebumps

Yep, a lot happens!!

Overall it's not better than the wire imo, but still, very very well written. Top quality tv.

Awesome show, so addicted. Love the music and the mardi gras indians. It's all good! Hard to say if I like it more than The Wire at this early stage. They're both so brilliantly written and well acted. Although I'm finding the whole New Orleans post Katrina thing much more interesting and emotional subject matter. The fridge scene in 7 was positively chilling.

When I've been recommending it friends, I've said that it's as good as The Wire but that I feel that I'll be rewatching Treme again in the future sooner than The Wire because of the music content.

I love the wire and generation kill, but gave up on this after ep4. just couldn't get into it. I wasn't into the whole jazz thing, and the davis character gave me the shits. some people seem to like it though.

7 episodes in and it's hooked me. Love how the tension is slowly building and you know some serious shit is going to go down by season's end but it's not exactly clear what.

I like how HBO shows do that, like once in the wire when the boxing coach is in hospital and the dude in the bed next to him with watching Deadwood and laughing that someone said cocksucker, and how David and Keith in 6 Feet Under were watching Oz.

Watched the first episode, was boring as shit. Does anything actually happen that makes this show worth watching?
