Plot

Ain't no Jockomo IPA in '05

The Steve Zahn character of the obnoxious self-righteous loser white boy annoyed me at first, but on reflection, it’s an accurate portrayal of some folks here so good going, D. Simon. The little girl was adorable with her hatred of Red Stick. I’ve had a special hate of BR since at least 2003 and it warms my cockles when I hear invectives about that DFW wannabe.

It’s only the first episode, so (tryin’ to be objective, dammit) it’s hard to say I love the show yet, but the characters are believable and the background is fairly accurate. I would like to see the show develop into a story of hope instead of portraying us as a bunch of depressed lunatics. We don’t play that shit.

Too much + too long = too little.

I felt that the introduction into each of the characters’ lives became a little dull. The creators took on too much for just one episode. To introduce a less known neighborhood in New Orleans to the rest of the country, the average viewer, plus quite a few fairly vague storylines pertaining to each character kind of left me hanging. But, on the otherhand, I will tune in next week to see if the show moves in the right direction. I just wonder if the rest of the country was able to follow.

Plot will continue to thicken I see!

So far I love the plot specifically around the lawyer finding the ladies brother who was not showing up in OPP records, this is true and many got lost in the system.
