    I still had fun with Treme on HBO - It was fun for me and Nancy to see who could name locals or localities faster

      Yeah, 'Treme' was a little NOLA fix for us who couldn't be there 50 weeks of the year, though it couldn't compare to the real thing. Sometimes a bit hokey but you take what you can get when 900+ miles away.

        Exactly why I picked Green Book for the win. I just loved being in the whole world of music for that movie. My goal when watching any performance is to dispense with reality and enjoy.

          YYR, MG, I know several locals who found it to be too painful. I loved it all.

            Digging in on a terrible opinion -- that you know is terrible -- because someone melted you years ago, lol. Thanks, I needed that.

            Treme was terrible. It was an incoherent mess. A lot really brilliant writers and actors made a terrible show. I couldn't make it through more than a few episodes. And wasn't any sort of PTSD from Katrina either. Love David Simon. Applaud the effort, but it just was bad.

Well until the Times told him. The fried chicken scene alone, holy smokes that made me cringe. Still can't believe that dogshit won an Oscar. Actually, I can.
                LOL MAN

                  Its a Canadian show, I don't think its on live TV anymore. I discovered late one nite channel surfing on some channel or other. I suggest you get the DVD of first 8 seasons, show was an ongoing series & story line progresses as it continues, worth watching from the start. Like someone said, it might still be airing new episodes on Netflix, but I eventually burned out on it. I got DVD on Amazon....
                  I loved the part of that clip where cops light up & judge says "only the defendant, please"

                      If you loved Green Book, you'll love this. It was my favorite for an Oscar this year.

                        My 96 yr. old Mom watches it. Thing that gets me, is why Bachelor (or Bachelorette) assumes that out of all the people in the world, his or her perfect mate is one of the people chosen by TV staff?

                          Is network TV ready for a gay version of the Bachelor?

                            Well, they're all hot, so that's what really matters The relationships almost never last, no surprise, I think most people watch for the drama, not the "love story." Bachelor in Paradise is way more fun with lots of gals and guys.

                                Please, someone tie all of this bad TV into Jazz Fest! Haha!

                                As for Treme, I'd DVR it and just watch the scenery and the music on there. The story and the acting were terrible.
