The Deuce (HBO) – Premieres 10th September – Renewed
Drama set in early 70’s that depicts the legalisation and rise of the porn industry in New York. The show follows Vincent a bar manager who is having to pay his twin brothers gambling debt back to the mob. Candy, one of the few prostitutes working without a pimp, CC and Larry Brown, two pimps who use violence to control their stable of women, and Abby a feminist college student who after getting arrested buying drugs, befriends Vincent.
The first episode is an incredibly slow paced affair that is used to set up all the main characters though barely anything of note occurs. And for no real story progression to happen in an hour and half that becomes a bit of a grind to get through and doesn’t give you much urge to watch the next episode.
