There are only five more episodes of David Simon and Eric Overmyer‘s Treme to come. Too late for new viewers now it seems, and this teaser will only really play well to people who already know the show, and are invested in the characters.
I think the vast gulf between the appreciation of The Wire and Treme is largely down to genre, unfortunately. People just like that cops-and-criminals stuff so much, and something less “action” or “suspense” oriented can, I think, be ignored unduly.
Still, Treme is as rich a show as The Wire is, at least minute for minute, and I know folks who will be very upset to see it go.
