If HBO starts to get anxiety about the ratings for David Simon's love letter to New Orleans, Treme, they'll always be able to lean on Anthony Bourdain for new ideas. Here, from his Twitter feed yesterday, he proposes a potential storyline whereby trombonist Antoine Batiste, played by Wendell Pierce, develops superpowers after being hit with a meteor. Turn Treme into a sci-fi adventure with superhero Wendell Pierce? Worse things have happened.
Also possibly maybe (but not really) coming this season: A big twist for the food story line, in which chef Janette Desautel makes it big on Food Network and descends into "a spiral of depression and Kung Fu related violence." If only.
