George’s critique: Suppose to be September 1, 2005, the day the levees broke. Okay, George is saying that the surrounding environment doesn’t show evidence that a hurricane just came through, except for the flood. All the trees have their leaves and they are not broken. The NOPD was not in their uniforms, but most in tactical apparel. Also, how did they get to their cars when they were underwater.
Where are the Sewell Cadillics that the NOPD commandeered because their units were flooded? Besides, most police officers wouldn’t have easily driven away from the 5 th district, which is the 9th ward. Not the safest part of town. I am sure that cop was car jacked if not drowned.
George’s critique: It was not as active as they show in the opening scene. There were no school buses, remember Mayor Ray Nagin left them in the parking lots under water, or ambulances.
Some one stealing plants, uh no. They are stealing copper piping and other house fixtures. And I am sure if he is living in his house after 2 years he would have scrubbed off the water line, especially if his house was not gutted.
Oh no she din’t. She did not just say after 2 years that she got a car that cost her 2 FEMA checks. Okay, that was too much. We haven’t seen a FEMA check in 2 years.
He just said Upper 9 which I have never heard of and that part wasn’t flooded. It was the Lower 9th. George says that it looks more like Uptown off of Louisiana.
4215 bourbon? If you are going to fake an address make it more real. French Quarter addresses don’t go up that high. They are only in the hundreds. Okay, now we are skipping across the river without taking the bridge. They are just jumping all over the places. Maybe it is just TV magic.
Riverfront casino is actually Hotel Intercontinental.
We are only 10 minutes into the show and it is 8:20pm. We have been TiVoing, so forgive us if it takes us 2 hours to watch an hour show. Also, George is trying to spot himself while he is out working in the Quarter. No luck, yet.
Shout out to Westwego!!! (Man being dumped in the water for information said he was out shrimping while his ex-girlfriend was being shot. When asked where is his fish and shrimp, he says he sold it at the fish market in Westwego.)
The names are little too cajun. Sure there are tons of names like that in the area, but they are more spread out. You don’t find that many names in the NOPD or any other entity.
Man, that is harsh. (Altanta is not special, but it ain’t here.) It doesn’t smell like that, anymore. (With regards to the cop’s wife claiming there is a mold smell. We just naturally have a funky smell). This would be a little more believable if it wasn’t taking place 2 years after the storm. Maybe a year after, but not 2.
It would be better if the New Orleans cop didn’t drink on duty. It just portrays that we are all drinkers, but hey other cops in other cop shows drink on the job, too. He is the rogue cop.
I can let it go with the drive by and the cop car blowing up in the Quarter (Jackson Square). However, it is hard to believe because there is too much traffic to make a quick getaway. One beef, though, is that people might think that the Quarter is violent when actually it is one of the safer places to be. Jackson Square is closed at night and the only time I think it was open was for the President’s speech after Katrina.
Those streets are no where near the CBD. (drawing street map in the dirt, morning after the drive by shooting, at Jackson Square) Is it because they are ficitionalizing the story, but why not use the actual street names?
I don’t believe that a NOPD cop, that stayed during the storm, would give a run way cop the time of day. I will go with it for the story.
There is no way that house is in the 9th ward. It is a little too big and a little too nice.
Niiiiiice, a VISA commerical featuring the Saints.
Quasi-celebrity Alert: Tom Cruise’s cousin.
I am so using that line, “There are more loose ends than a whore house”. (Said by the police captain after explaining how the case has turned political.)
Those police cruisers are tpainted like the ones before Katrina. They are not so blue or fancy, anymore. More like quickly painted to get them out and about.
They don’t steal street signs, because you can’t steal something that was never been replaced. Thanks, mayor.
Fighting with George to fast forward through the Resident Evil commerical, so I don’t get nightmares. Dumass.
Cashing in to keep the misery going is the insurance companies’ job. (Officer Boulet is scolding the rich white girl for her pilot to keep the 9th ward from coming back.)
Predictable ending. She did it for her brother. She didn’t just use the meaning of Katrina? I am shocked and appalled. Yes, Katrina does mean cleansing and purification. She played the race card, albeit in a round about way, but we know what they mean. I could have done without this, but it is how some people feel.
I swear it is surely Hollywood magic to get around the city so fast. You would think there is no traffic in the city.
LIVEBLOGGING Emergency: Low battery on the laptop. Husband moving too slow to get plug in cord. HURRY, DAMMIT! HURRY!
I notice the New Orleans cop didn’t jump in the river. He knows better. Better to let the yankee do it.
All S.W.A.T and other law enforcement supplies can be purchased at 10-8 Tactical supply on Jefferson Hwy. (S.W.A.T. team enters to save the day)
What hospital are they at? Even before the storm our hospitals didn’t look that fancy. They look like…wait for it…hospitals. I haven’t been in one hospital that had chandliers hanging in the hallway. It would have been nice to have something like that to use as a focal point while in labor.
Definitely Uptown. Too many trees for the 9th ward. (Thank you street party for Officer Boulet.)
Shocker: The white partner (I haven’t paid attention to the names) was at OPP during the storm. The cells didn’t fill up with water at OPP. So, now the NOPD is not checking records for their new recruits? I hope that is fiction. Although who better to catch a criminal than another criminal.
Stay tune for a more indepth review.
