9. TREME IS NOT THE WIRE
And if you want it to be, you should go watch The Wire some more. Because Treme doesn’t have the automatically exciting guns ‘n’ drugs element The Wire so deftly explored, viewers are processing the show as boring. In fact, the two shows are doing similar work in that they’re both committed to painting a full picture of a city, but the similarities end there, just as the similarities between B-more and NOLA can only be pushed so far.
Basically, stop whining. The Wire was brilliant but it’s over. You know who you sound like? The dude that can't get over his past relationship, even though the lovely woman you’re with now is quite fetching and musically-inclined and has excellent taste.
