    what no comments? Not only is Treme a great show, but the music of NOLA in the show is fantastic. And Boardwalk is great TV too!

    Can’t wait!

    Boardwalk is awesome, though nobody really cares about Treme.

  • wha

    only retards don’t.

    I’ve gotten so used to “Treme” in April that it just doesn’t feel right waiting this late for a season to start. But soon the wait will be over! I started out watching simply because David Simon was attached and I love “The Wire”. I’ve grown to love this show and can’t wait until the new season begins

  • CCV

    HBO is probably trying to boost its ratings by airing it alongside the other fall shows. I hope this works, Simon said he already has plans for a fourth and final season, should it get renewed, and as far as my memory serves its on the bubble for renewal.


    Anyone who doesn’t care about a David Simon run show is a fool. Homicide, The Corner, The Wire, Treme, even Generation Kill are all fantastic–The Wire is the greatest show of all time, and Homicide is probably in the top ten or twenty as well. The man is a genius, and you can never doubt a show’s authenticity, writing, or artistic merit when his name is on it in some way.
