I really, really, *REALLY* like this show! near as I can tell, they pretty much got it all right, down to the minute details too! Toni (played by Melissa Leo) get’s to work with 4 cups of coffee from CC’s for her coworkers; nice touch! There are no Boudreaux and Thibadeaux stereotypes to muddle things up, and all the players seem to be treated with diginity as they pick up the pieces of their lives and try to get their city back on it’s feet. The language can be rough at times, but it is understandable I suppose, given the circumstances all the characters find themselves in. There are plenty of “real people” involved in the show too; Kermit Ruffins, Rebirth Brass Band, CoCo Robicheaux, the list is seemingly endless.

Check it out if you get the chance, it’s very entertaining and very well done.
