Late Breaking Anticipation
Whew. Okay now. Treme. Where to begin?
I’m sitting in my home of the last 10 months in Cincinnati, an unlabeled videotape on the entertainment center shelf practically throbbing with the potential to take me back to nearly five years ago. I’ve heard so much about it, even avoiding most of the commentary (a few posts here and the Colbert appearance are pretty much it).
I know Goodman’s character is loosely based on Ashley Morris, saw it on Colbert and it shook me up a bit.
I known that there is a Davis character based on Davis Rogan, who I’ve known since high school. Something that is both good and bad.
I know I’m going to be starving for New Orleans food by the time it’s over.
And I’m worried that I might cry.
It’s supposed to start three months after the levee failure if I understand correctly. If that’s right then my wife and I have already been back amidst the wreckage for almost six weeks at the time of the opening scene..
I’ll be back soon to share my reaction, I’ve waited long enough to get ahold of this. It is time for anticipation to pass me a Pimms Cup and get out of my way.
