Storyline

In 1971, Brooklyn bartender Vincent "Vinnie" Martino (James Franco) is beaten by muggers while he is performing drops. Vinnie's identical twin brother, reckless gambler Frankie (James Franco), owes money to several mobsters and bookies. Fed up with his unfaithful wife, Andrea (Zoe Kazan), he leaves his family and decides to focus on his bar. Pimp C.C. (Gary Carr) recruits Lori (Emily Meade), a new arrival from Minnesota, as a prostitute. C.C's prized possession is Ashley (Jamie Neumann), who is in love with C.C. and becomes jealous of Lori. Another pimp, Larry Brown (Gbenga Akinnagbe), is abusive towards his prostitutes, one of whom is the sweet-natured Darlene (Dominique Fishback). Eileen "Candy" Merrell (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a prostitute and single mother, chooses to work without a pimp and becomes introduced in the ascendant pornography industry.

Amazing

After just one episode of The Deuce, I can do nothing but say that David Simon seems incapable of creating bad shows. The Deuce is a visually stunning show with great performances from every single actor. The dialogue is fantastic as well. It nails the feeling of 70's New York, or at least what I imagine it would feel like.

As of this moment, I cannot find a single thing in the first episode of The Deuce I don't like. This will probably be my new favorite ongoing show. I hope it will get renewed for as long as David Simon feels he can create good content, and not a single episode longer.
