MORE BANANAS FOSTER: I'll admit that I tried but couldn't get into Treme when it premiered last year--despite family ties to New Orleans, I felt less like I was being entertained and more like I was being beaten over the head while David Simon yelled "THIS IS A TRAGEDY!" at me. (I had a similar reaction to parts of The Wire as well.) Add to it that I found many of the characters completely unsympathetic (most notably Steve Zahn's), and I let it drop. However, news that Anthony Bourdain is writing parts of Season 2 that are set in/involve restaurants makes me think that I might give it another chance.
