Tv Season Info

THE DEUCE chronicles that moment in time when sex went from being a back-alley, brown-paper-bag commodity to a billion-dollar universal in American life, a moment when ground zero for the earliest pioneers in the flesh trade was the midtown heart of the nation's largest city, New York's Times Square.

I wanted to love The Deuce. I didn't.

In its first season, The Deuce executed the trickiest version of that alchemy yet. This show isn't sentimental about '70s New York; in fact, it's careful to show how the New York of the '70s contained within it the seeds of the New York of the 2010s.

After watching the first few episodes, I had no desire to watch it again. I caught up with it later and was glad that I did, though there were many moments -- intentional, I'm certain -- where watching it was an endurance test.

Like The Wire, The Deuce makes pertinent observations about how the Greatest Nation in the World treats its people, the people it would much rather stay hidden in their ghettos and alleys, murdering and overdosing themselves to extinction.

It's a high-brow show about low-brow art-porn!-with impeccable production value, wild performances, and enough salaciousness to keep you titillated.
