Treme, “Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky” (2.02)

A fancy salmon dish in a restaurant.

A review of the episode, written by David Simon and directed by Tim Robbins, after the jump…

Sometimes you encounter en episode that, while perfectly alright in its own right, just doesn’t leave you with anything new to say. “Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky” is one of those episodes. It felt like it was reiterating a lot of emotional beats we saw in the premiere, particularly for Janette and the Annie/Davis coupling.

Annie and Davis are interesting, because the show is offering up an picture of an incompatible couple in their honeymoon stages. They have a few mini-fights here, but because they’ve got the rose-coloured glasses on, flaws that would normally grind away at them are shrugged off. Once that period ends, though, I have a feeling that Annie, like she did Sonny last season, will realise that she needs someone with even a modicum of maturity. And Davis, growing as he sometimes does, isn’t going to be that guy any time soon. That’s a shame, because they are cute together, and I want the best for both of them.

Besides that, not much really stuck with me from this episode, which very much felt transitional in nature. I expect we’ll get something a little more memorable next week.
