Dialect

Maybe tone it down a little bit

Love the scenery. But it seems that there is such a hurry to use every cliche’ ever voiced in New Orleans in just 2 episodes: where y’at, how,s your momma and em’, cher’, and then to name every single street in the city too. It is good (for me) to hear all that, but to the rest of the nation, I think they will get bored in a very short time since it means nothing to them. And the guy that was on the radio before Spud and then a Hotel clerk, seems like a serial killer pyscho dude to me. Very creepy. Oh my, Miss Parker, you look lovely.

My first Pet Peeve - we don't repeat each other this much.

Especially in the scenes with Clarke Peters (Big Chief). I think they do it for comprehension purposes but we actually can hear and don’t need to repeat things to demonstrate that we heard you. i.e ‘Calliope’ ‘ Calliope.’ I don’t remember them doing that for ‘The WIre,’ in fact i remember re-watching scenes with snoop just to figure you what she was trying to say. I’d prefer a little more authenticity even if it means you have to re-watch it to understand. Shit it took me 4 years before I figure out ‘d’heme co’ was D’Hemecourt.

Right on!

Thank god I grew up in this town, I imagine outside folks couldn’t understand what was going on in the first scene. When the guy said, “Bruh”, I knew this wasn’t going to be no “cher” filled nightmare of a new orleans movie. I’m very impressed.

Say Bruh

When they first said,“Say Bruh” I knew dialect would be on point. It was a match locals and even the actors had it down!!! I love the way my people talk and its great to finally see something on television that got it right!
