The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world at the pioneering moments of what would become the billion-dollar American sex industry.


Created by David Simon (The Wire)
Premieres September 10, 2017 on HBO

I have nothing clever to say about it. It was well directed. The seventies come back to life on screen. It also bored me.
I'm so many people.

Sounds like everything David Simon has done post-Wire. "It's really good. Just wish I liked it."
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

It's just one episode in, but I liked the pilot.
There are moments that definitely feel like the Wire, but I thought the Wire was boring the first couple of episodes.

Really enjoyed the Maggie Gyllenhaal bits. Gonna stick with it, because David Simon likes to take his time and two James Francoz is quite generous.
