The New New Treme Trailer: Walter Sobchak Spotted in New Orleans

Presumably encouraged by the positive Internet response to Monday's Treme trailer, and yesterday's Boardwalk Empire, HBO has apparently decided to release a new trailer every day until both shows debut. Today, a new new trailer for Treme, this one featuring actual dialogue! We hadn't realized a show by Wire creator David Simon set in post-Katrina New Orleans could be this much fun; yes, there are characters searching for missing relatives and piecing together broken lives, but there's actual humor and awesome jazz here, too. Also, John Goodman will evidently reprise his role as The Big Lebowski's Walter Sobchak. This thing premieres on April 11, so we look forward to the show's next 20 trailers.
