There’s a bit of the old bait-and-switch (hopefully!) going on in David Simon’s new post-Katrina, New Orleans-set, show about Jazz musicians. Instead of anything truly revealing (though more so than the initial teaser), we get lots of New Orleans-styled cliches. Okay, fine. But it’s David Simon, right?
I mean a man has to live by a code and something tells me David Simon’s code is to never produce anything hackey or cliched. Which is why I’m calling this trailer bunk.
