Tremé, season 4

Although I can certainly see why 'Tremé' has had a hard time finding an audience, this is still brilliant TV! 

No murders, no adultery, no snappy one-liners, no gorgeous (nor even famous) actors to be found, but a clever, well-wrought plotline and believable characters.

This tiny epilogue of five episodes is to be the last season, which is simultaneously a pity and of course exemplary as it means there will be no slow decline of the show.

It took a couple of episodes for 'Tremé' to find its rhythm and balance at first (the first three episodes were pretty much incomprehensible) but just like New Orleans itself, its fictive inhabitants have picked themselves up and got their show back on the road.

I'll miss it.
