        Comments about this product:

        I already thought Treme was the greatest TV series ever but I'm a little hearing impaired so when I found out the DVD set had subtitles I immediately bought it. Now that I can read every word and the series has risen to even greater hight's for me. What's more the DVDs come with straight commentary and music commentary so I am watching each episode three times. There's also a bonus piece on the making of Treme.

        Authenticity is Treme's greatest attribute. They used real New Orleans musicians, real local characters, true event threads, a ton of history, and the greatest music you will ever hear. Everything revolves around the music and as a musician I always loved New Orleans music but now I know the local music scene intimately. Every series features a few local bands that play traditional N O music and with the music commentary by two NPR musicologists you now can hear the real story behind these great bands. I can't say enough about how much I love this show. Unfortunately the show is for mature audiences because it would have been a great show for kids But then it would have lost some of its dramatic power. Keep this show on HBO (who can do no wrong for me) as long as possible.

                This show is so well done. I had missed the first 4 episodes so I was very happy to get the entire first season so I could watch what I missed. I can hardly wait for the new season.

                  Particularly worthwhile for the commentary tracks.

                  Treme is fairly complicated; I always found myself backing up the DVR to catch a nuance in dialogue, etc.

                  But there were still questions, "Did they mean this...or that?"

                  The commentary tracks are particularly helpful because they fill in some of the residual "blanks" in my understanding.

                    Comments about this product:

                    This show is an accurate depiction of post-Katrina New Orleans. The richness of traditions and characters in the show may not be as well received by those outside New Orleans for the simple fact that, they really just don't get it. Finally a series has managed to depict those indescribable things that make New Orleans important. Check out all the music from the show. Kermit, Rebirth, Jon Cleary...All of them.

                            I don't think anyone knows anyone who can say a bad thing about this series! Treme redefines character presentation and smothers you with culture! It is deeply engaging and real. This is an encyclpedia of New Orleans as every episode drags you deeper into this fantastic city. HBO has commited just the right mix of spontanity and production value. Take a look (and listen!)at the wrap around cineamtography during the Second Line / Feel Like Funkin it up as Wendel Peirce joins in. If you aren't commited to the show at that point you should have your flat screen removed and be banished from ever watching TV again! If you didn't fall apart when "This City" played over the season ending credits you really aren't human. Why haven't the suits at HBO made this first season available for Christmas gifts??? Shame, Shame Shame!

                              Only once did I miss the original airing of an episode--my kid was born that day. This show grabs you and doesn't let go. The storylines are well written, beautifully (not gratuitously) intertwined and wonderfully acted. You can feel Big Chief's pride in his tradition and Davis's love for his city; Janette's desire to succeed is palpable and her disappointment stings you. I am looking forward to next season to see how certain storylines--especially Delmond and hopefully Jacques--develop.

                                Having visited New Orleans for the first time in my life last year and going back again this year for the Jazz Fest, I have come to love the people, the city, the history and culture. Treme shows just a small but powerful part of the city. Treme has shown me the triumphs and depths of human nature. We cannot let this, our culture and history, die. I love NO so much I want to move there!

Thank you for this show! It is authentic and anyone who has lived in Louisiana or along the Gulf Coast knows you have done NOLA and all the survivors of Katrina justice! Bien joué, merci cher!

                                        There will never be a more accurate story of New Orleans - past & present - pre-Katrina & post Katrina. I am a native Louisianian and I am touched beyond words at this production.

                                          I am a HUGE Treme fan. Fell in love with it first by concept and then by presentation. The music and realism got down in my bones in a bittersweet way. I am so happy that Now Orleans is not being dismissed or forgotten as many would have it to be. I only gave it 4 stars because I wanted to see more episodes, not because of quality. I intend to vist the city at some point in time so I can experience in person what I have gotten in my spirit.

                                            Just when I thought a HBO series couldn't get any better, along comes Treme. I can't explain why, but this series affected me in a very personal way. Maybe because I live in another devastated city, Detroit. I give Treme the highest possible recommendation.

                                              This is one of the Best HBO series yet. I do not have one bad thing to say, sorry I can't be objective. This series is triumph of spirit, of loss, great music, cinematography, culture, great cast,story line, authenticity, all the components I love. I have been recomending to everyone I know and plan to visit the crescent city soon, because of this series.
                                              Keep up the great work and thank you HBO.

                                                It is a very thought provoking series about the human spirit and the determination of the people of New orleans.
