Treme-a New Orleans neighborhood; an HBO TV series; pronounced with 2 syllables, accent on the second "e", which sounds like a long "a". First "e" is short. Got it?!

Always a little skeptical about TV shows and movies that attempt to depict New Orleans, I was REALLY wary of this one, set in the early post Katrina landscape. But then I watched the 2 hour premiere. Not bad. The accents don't have me cringing...too much. Now that they've gotten a Jazz Funeral out of the way, an episode about voo-doo will complete the ridiculous stereotype, and they can get on with the good drama. Hahaha. Maybe it will be a good series. Time will tell.
