This looks like it could have potential.

Starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early ‘70s through the mid-80s.


Starts tomorrow night at 10pm on Sky Atlantic.

Found it this started much earlier in America and I've since seen the first four episodes - it's fucking brilliant.

Really has that David Simon/Wire feel to it and the characters are all excellent. Really, really enjoying this show so far.

I'm watching it on the American schedule so I've seen 6 of the 8 episodes so far and it's honestly fucking amazing. 

The cinematography, the acting, the writing... it's all fantastic.

Blows my mind that shows like this are barely talked about yet everyone creams their knickers about the latest cardboard cutout Marvel superhero adventure series on Netflix.

Well Sky Atlantic is basically just British HBO right?

The Wire, The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Oz, Band of Brothers, Westworld... the list goes on and on.

It's got to the stage where if the HBO tag is on a show then I'm at least giving it the benefit of the doubt.

As for The Deuce? It's basically The Wire with cracking fanny and the lack of fanny was quite literally the only criticism that anyone could have about The Wire.

This show is so, so fucking good.
