Fairly good,but got waaay to much Franco in it
30 October 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a good decent drama show,but the problem is, Franco is clearly making this his ticket into be in big league.There is way too many scenes of him working behind the bar,or doing other stuff .A lot of them don't really go anywhere,they're just not needed fillers. Sometimes they have a lingering pan shot of someone sitting in a car smoking.There is a lot of these artistic shots ,that don't really go anywhere

I like the show and it's atmosphere.The whole 70s look of it, really set the mood & make you feel like it's real.Though I'm sure the real thing was much more gritty and dark. So it probably don't hold up real well,to what real life was back then.But it's still a good show.

The girls who play hookers does a really good job.They got the dead- inside-going-through-the-motion-look,in their eye.Whenever they are with a customer or their pimp.

Maggie Gyllenhall,is doing a fantastic job in this show(And I don't even like her as an actress) Some of the younger talent are mostly there for eye candy and extras.Which is sad,cause they could bring more to the story. Kim Director is a great versatile actress.Same goes for Emily Meade,they both do a great job,but get way to little screen time.Compared to some of the others who are uninteresting and disappear from the show.

But It seem like the focus will be Maggie and Francos characters. You get some background on the two but, it's mostly uninteresting, in terms of driving the story forward. I guess in Maggie's case, it's just to make her more sympathetic to the viewers.

The 3 main focuses of the series is:Franco's life and the stuff that revolves around him, and his bar with the mob contacts. Maggie and her life, going from street walker to being in porn movies. Than there are these two cops,that you really don't know where will fit in yet. The rest are mostly extras.And sideshow characters. But it's still great show
