Please let this one fly!
This gutsy ensemble which features Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco, takes a look at New York City during the 1970s and '80s when porn and prostitution were rampant in Manhattan.
I can only hope The Deuce doesn't follow the same fate as Vinyl (2016), The Get Down (2016), Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (2015).

I gave this show a fair shot, and there were parts of it I liked, but just can't handle double the Franco. If they kill off one of the twins, I may start watching again. Preferably kill off both. Gyllenhaal's character is pretty cool, and I'm interested in seeing where she goes.

This artful depiction of the porn industry in NYC woven together with issues of feminism, corruption, and the struggle for women to find a place in a man's world has great acting and an interesting story line. I'm surprised more people aren't interested in it. I grew up in NYC and knew people in the fledgling porn industry; this is a good depiction of how it really was, before AIDS when you could cure the clap with one injection. And the fact that the hero, played by James Franco, also plays his evil twin brother always adds a note of humor to the story.

I like a story with character development from flawed to wiser. I like a story in which there is an insurmountable obstacle, which the main characters have to move past. It has taken 14 episodes to really convey the complexity of the insurmountable obstacle. I am looking forward to the wiser resolution of the main characters.

Set in the 1970s New York, this period drama revolves around the legitimatisation of the porn industry. Although, the show has an interesting take and an exceptional cast topped with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco, it is just painfully slow. Patience is not my strong suit and I had to drop the show after 6 episodes.

A dark realistic look at the beginning of porno flick industry. The show is a bit slow and doesn’t truly delve into the characters’ backgrounds. The 2nd season doesn’t appear to evolve. They have some amazing actors involved, surprised they’re not giving them more to work with.

Even though it is supposed to be one of the best series around, and it started great, I cannot stand the fact that as the hours pass, nothing really happens. Franco is a horrible actor (?), and that doesn't help. Moreover when there're two of them!!!

Pretty good so far. It fun to watch the more masculine Gylennhall sibling invent GILF porn in the 70's.
