Treme Music: "Right Place, Wrong Time"

by at . Comments

The latest episode of Treme wasn't exactly uplifting, but we don't watch this HBO drama for its optimistic message.

We watch it for its incredible acting, attention to detail and, perhaps above all, musical selections.

Using songs to showcase New Orleans and its residents in a post-Katrina world, the series delves into a universe with which most viewers are unfamiliar.

Lake Charles was playing in Janette's restaurant when Toni first found out that LaDonna's brother used to work there. A couple episodes later Toni found out that the cop who pulled over LaDonna's brother abandoned his police cruiser in LAKE CHARLES.

Treme Quotes

The flooding of New Oreleans was a man-made catastrophe. A federal fuck-up of epic proportions.


I'm this close to getting a new water heater. Think you could float me a loan?
