'Treme' explained: 'All on a Mardi Gras Day' Episode 8

It contains spoilers so beware, readers in western time zones and DVR watchers -- but also a lot of information and links that might help viewers of the series better understand the show's characters and stories, as well as the city and time period in which it's set.

The density of local references admittedly makes encyclopedic coverage an overwhelming task, so in-the-know readers are encouraged to supplement the weekly reports via comments submissions below the main post.

I'll be expanding and correcting past posts as the season advances, so feel free to contribute observations and commentary.

A comprehensive archive of the Times-Picayune's Katrina coverage, including an animated map of the levee failures, is valuable background for Treme viewers.

In addition, these books, links, CDs, DVDs and streams might prove helpful.
