I tried to watch David Simon's new show Treme last night. I tried and failed.
Maybe I was just tired having spent the day playing golf and then watching golf.
Maybe I was turned off by Steve Zahn's naked white ass and John Goodman's ranting.
Maybe the juxtaposition of watching two consecutive episodes of The Pacific as a lead-in to Treme put me in a mindset where I was more disgusted by people like Steve Zahn's character. It was tough to watch the self-sacrifice of the Marines in The Pacific compared to the no-sense of responsibility Steve Zahn character and then hear John Goodman's character blaming the Army Corps of Engineers for the city's woes.
I'll give Treme another shot but honestly so far I'm lukewarm on the show.
