Riveting, attention grabbing, and unique
22 September 2017 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The Deuce is one of those shows that defies description, because what you think it's going to be changes and evolves. It's mature, well acted, and completely different than anything I've seen in a long time.

This show has such a raw feel to it that you feel the grit dripping off the screen. It's real, and filled with colorful characters that leave an impression. A few I began to care about during the first episode. I love when the work is so good, I become invested in a show and there's a strong desire to come back and see what happens.

I am quite impressed with James Franco. He can be many things, and sometimes I forget that he can be a very compelling actor. He's good at his craft, and I feel this is his best work so far. While Maggie Gyllenhaal, who has consistently impressed me over the years doesn't disappoint here. She's just fantastic. As a matter of fact, most all the actors in this show really seem to give it their all. There are characters galore, and lots of plot points to get involved in. That being said, it doesn't feel too busy. There's just the right amount things going on.

I really have to admit that I thought it would be something else. I nearly ignored it. I'm glad I watched though, and I can see it becoming one of my favorite new shows.

There's a lot of nudity as one would probably expect, both male and female, including male genitalia, so if you aren't ready for that sort of thing in your face, be forewarned. It's not gratuitous though, and fits within the flow of the story. I don't consider that a spoiler, as there is other information on IMDb in the "parents guide" that cautions about the nudity.

The bottom line, this show is worth my time, and you may find it worth yours as well. I get the feeling it will only get better.
