Treme Season 1

I'm only two episodes in but I really hope this improves. The DJ guy, Davis, has to be one of the most irritating characters I've seen in a tv series and the whole thing just seems far too earnest for its own good.

There has been a number of television shows in the past 10 years or so that asked us to root for a amoral or self-serving character. This started with "The Sopranos", where we are asked to root for a criminal. Tony Soprano loved his family, sure, but as the series went on his character grew more self-serving. Then there's a show like Dexter which wants the audience to root for a murderer. Shows like "Dexter" and "Breaking Bad" are wish-fulfillement shows that focus on a character who does what they want, and each week we want them to get away with the terrible things they do. Don Draper may not be a killer but his loner doesn't want to make any serious attachments lest he has to recreate his identity persona is another sort of wish-fulfillment to do as we please and if things don't work he can leave and let others to pick up the pieces he's left behind. In each of these shows the audience is asked to root for selfish, even delusional characters who justify their self-serving actions.

A friend of mine is raving about that. It's similar to The Wire, right?

thought homeland was so boring.

why does this woman think 9/11 was her fault. so this soldier becomes an islamic terrorist. but why do i care? were is the actual terrorism? after 4 episodes of this boredom and no boom boom i deleted the torrent.

i am not going to listen to americans whinge about the ever so slightly dangerous undercurrents to their nice upper middle class worlds without seeing them get blown the fuck up in spectacular terrorist suicide bombings.

No, still not finished yet. I get the discs when they come so it'll be ages before I do. I'm still only at the beginning of Season 3. I like it, but I'm starting to wonder if I like it as much as I wanted to/thought I would. It sort of suffers from it's own massive reputation. Not that it's an either/or but I think I prefer The Sopranos. Although I did think season 2 of the Wire (about the dock workers) was amazing.

I think the Wire was way inferior, acting wise, to the Sopranos. Writing not so good, either, the McNutty and his black pal, and wife and kids and girl friends has got to be the worst characterizations since, I don't know when. Some parts are excellent, a lot of the inner story around the higher ranking cops and politicians was very good. I only watched 2 or 3 epsodes of Treme and bailed on it. Same thing. Unbelievable characters, poor dialog and acting.

yeah I always thought the wire was really clichéd in terms of the individual characters; the show as a whole was good (I'm not nearly as big on it as others) but the characters had the depth of a toddler pool.

it's the same problem I have with this new show, top of the lake. I mean for fuck's sake, you're copping your entire concept from twin peaks so you may as well put some time into your characterizations. it's seriously as if they're not even trying to distance themselves from the fact that the show is entirely unoriginal.



I need a new tv show though. I've done my usual cycle through curb, seinfeld, peep show, always sunny, black books etc. and need something to keep me going. survivor can only do so much...

re-watching this.


Re: workaholics, it is a funny show, but I see so much that is cribbed off of other shows, and the one guy who is like a poor man's Jack Black can sometimes irritate me, but the show is funny stuff...


I found BLACK BOOKS so BORING!

Peep Show was good stuff though. My wife turned me onto that one. Thank mario for Netflix.

watch the big lockout again, and then again and again and again until you get it. brilliant show, definitely the best british show of the last 15 years (along with the eternally gloriously painful peep show).

mang, the episode when manny becomes a hair model (or whatever it is he does) is one of funniest things ever.

one difference between british and americans sitcoms/ comedies i think is that the british tend to use much more unpleasant characters as fodder for comedy. i.e., the characters in seinfeld or sunny are assholes, but they have a likeable side and you somehow find yourself cheering for them, whereas say peepshow (the most highly rated british comedy i've had trouble with) the characters are just horrible and depressing and that's that (same thing w/the green wing-- a bunch of unpleasant assholes).

in black books they are atrocious people but i dont know, something just works-- i think i remember the first two seasons are really good and the last was surprisingly crap. thing is these british seasons are ultra-short.

and if you're looking for something sillier/goofier i could recommend father ted. father ted is hilarious!

I'm three episodes into season 1 of "The Wire". Each episode is better then the last. I was reading a bit about the show on wikipedia, and saw that each season looks into a different part of the community (crime, education, politics). Do they change the cast each season, and are the following seasons as good or better then the first if that's the case?

The cops for the most part stay throughout the whole series, there are also other characters who stay throughout. If I said anymore it'd probably be a spoiler. However as each season is a different case there are many characters who are only in it for one season.

The great thing about the following seasons is they're generally different (except 3 which is close to season 1) so everyone has their favs. My personal favorite was 4.
