The final five-episode long season of Treme premieres this coming Sunday, December 1. And here's a pretty harsh takedown of the show from Rolf Potts over at the Atlantic: "The show's food-themed storyline... becomes nearly unwatchable when Janette moves to New York to work in the kitchens of nonfictional culinary hotshots like Eric Ripert and David Chang... her awkward interactions with these real-life chefs consistently distracts. Even when Janette isn't stuck in wooden conversations with non-actors, her character's dramatic stakes diminish as the show fixates on restaurant-industry realism." [Atlantic]
