Re: The Deuce - HBO Sunday

Still not sure how I feel about this. Well acted, but still ever so slowly plodding along.

Think this has gotten better, but still seems to be kinda plodding along.

Re: The Deuce - HBO Sunday

We just got to the second episode of this and liking it better. The characters are starting to have personalities, even if they still seem too much like stereotypes.

At first I thought CC had arranged a set-up with the weirdo who handcuffed Lori, so she'd have still another lesson on why she needs a pimp. Well, clearly not a pre-arranged assignation!

Did Larry have anything to do with Fat Mooney (Moody?) getting raided? Or was it just coincidence that the raid happened after he told Darlene he'd deal with the films of her being sold? I wouldn't expect him to have that kind of juice with the police.

But I'm definitely suspicious of who was calling and outing the customers of the gay bar. It must have made it a lot cheaper to buy...

Re: The Deuce - HBO Sunday

Having watched through episode 3, Iím liking this better with each hour. Some of the economics lessons are a bit heavy handed but aren't too intrusive.

Iím seeing more in the characters, and what I'm seeing is interesting and engaging. But Iím waiting for more of the women (in addition to Candy) to create some agency for themselves. The Frankie/Vinnie dynamic is reminding me a lot of the cousins Nick and Ziggy back in season 2 of The Wire. Franco did a credible directing job, especially in consideration of his dual acting work.

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.

Re: The Deuce - HBO Sunday

The humor in this episode was really strong, like The Wire strong, and so dark! And the notes of melancholy were perfect Ė especially Candy and Ruby remembering the suede jacketís former owner and her love of "Jean Nate."

Between the rat and the death and then everyone at the diner making fun of her, itís no wonder Candy is looking for a change Ė though the guy from the music shop was awfully pushy, IMO. I wonder if it says something about her relationships with men that she gave him her phone number and then returned his call, despite his pursuing her so strongly after she didn't seem interested. Alstonís date was even more strange. I loved that he wore his hair more combed out for ďAngela Davis.Ē
