“Treme”: Sweet rebirth

Oh my goodness, "Treme" is good. Engrossing. Breathtaking in all its detail. The first episode runs about an hour and a half. It lives up to the advance billing, and the high expectations of "Wire" nuts.

Without giving away too much — no spoilers from me — I will just say that Wendell Pierce and Clarke Peters were born to be the on-camera interpreters of David Simon and his core creative crew. It's good to have them all back in the same parish.

(I also submit that Wendell Pierce was born to say "mother$%^&#@," in all its mumbled, spat, slurred, comic, desperate variations. Nobody ever made it poetry quite like he does.)
