Tonight in HD: January 19

SoHo Highlight: Treme (Sky 10, 9.30, 5.1) Second-season premiere: Antoine contemplates a move while LaDonna resists one; Colson contends with the return of crime to New Orleans; Annie returns from a national tour; in New York, Delmond debuts his new album. As Newsday pleaded: “Please watch this show. Really. It’s excellent on far too many levels to enumerate here, but it is truly entertaining and (I promise) watchable.” Concurred The Hollywood Reporter: “Ambitious? As always. And if the first few episodes are any indication, tighter, even more evocative and as lush and lovingly constructed as possible when conveying the plight of the forgotten.” Even the detractors struggled to find fault. To wit, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “There are scenes in the first five episodes of the new season that are as compelling as anything television has to offer. But the viewer has to wade through material that fails more often than not to deliver on its promise.” ✭✭✭✭
