My thoughts on the new series K-Ville

Back in july I posted about the new TV series that takes place in New Orleans, K-Ville (read it here)

Yesterday I watched the pilot on TV. I had to.

So what did I think? Well, it certainly doesn't do the city justice so far. I mean, what you see in the show is about the same ole' crap you hear about on the news. To me, it is like beating a dead horse. There is so much more to this city! When it started out with September 1, 2005 and the officers in boats on flooded streets trying to rescue people I said, "Oh here we go . . . "

I can only hope that it takes on more positive angles then it did in the pilot. Otherwise, I won't be watching it. I don't watch the news because of the negativity why would I want to watch K-ville for entertainment?

Can we move on people! New Orleans is drowning again. This time in negativity and the drama of Katrina!

My thoughts too.
What does episode 3 entitled 'Bedfellows' mean? I hope its not what the name sounds like. If so, how could the actors sell out by portraying a guy cops in New Orleans.

How does this have to do with brothels?

Agreed!!! And if we New Orleanians don't want to see it, who will??

I was going to watch it, but I wasn't sure.

Glad to hear your response.

just finally watched the pilot tonight (had to tape it as all last week we were glued to the DVD boxed set of the first season of Heroes...) We were disappointed, too. I don't have a problem with them showing some of the hard stuff that NOLA is going through. But di they have to create some crazy story about shooting up benefits in front of St. Louis Cathedral with Uzis? And Helicopter escapes? Please. And the guy who is really an escaped prisoner? I'm not from here, but whenever I go out with someone who is we run into someone they know. It is a SMALL town. People stay here all their lives. There is no way you could return and not be found out.
