From the makers of The Wire

After the incredible success David Simon had with The Wire, the bar was set high for his latest series, Treme, which features many of the same cast, and is set in post-Katrina New Orleans. The first season has got a brilliant jazz soundtrack, beautifully studied characters and even features cameos from Elvis Costello and Steve Earle. Does it live up to expectations? Not quite. But, then again, what could?

8/10
