The Deuce: “What Kind of Bad?”

The Deuce: “What Kind of Bad?”

Our characters continue to delve deeper into business deals, alienated relationships and abusive situations – either at the hands of pimps, potential johns or just life on the streets. We know that The Deuce is a show about the seedier side of life in the 1970s, in certain areas of New York. Corruption is everywhere and it seems like no one is immune to taking a bribe – as long as it stays under wraps. Police take payouts in order stay out of certain geographic areas. Pimps trade their girls like it’s no big deal – after all, their girls are nothing but a source of profitable holes (sorry if that is too blunt but let’s face it,...

The Deuce: “I See Money”

The Deuce: “I See Money”

This show has certainly been no shortage of dramatic moments so far in the first three episodes. And HBO continues to keep the shocks coming in episode four “I See Money.” Vinnie (James Franco) has opened the Hi-Hat and sees immediate success. As commented on in the episode, Vinnie has the personality to appeal to different kinds of people and the ability with his bar to bring them all together.  To be a haven for the outcasts.  But when the inner workings of the deals between him and Rudy (Michael Rispoli) become threatened, you have to wonder if they have enough power to keep the people in line.  I still don’t fully...

The Deuce: “The Principle Is All”

The Deuce: “The Principle Is All”

This episode focuses on four characters, their struggles, frustrations and insecurities with the daily goings on in their lives. Vincent (James Franco), Lori (Emily Meade), Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Abby (Margarita Levieva) are all shown in a state of malaise and wanting more from their lives. Don’t we all want to achieve personal and professional satisfaction at some point? Ruby and Candy take a little trip to watch a seedy adult short movie being filmed. What’s even more startling is how quick they are at realizing that the filmmaker in question is pulling a con job. He’s in it to make a fast buck, charging voyeurs a fee to...

Thanks To THE DEUCE Potato Soup Will Never Be The Same!

In Episode 2 of THE DEUCE Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) fills in for a girl who can’t make it to her filming session. It seems a film entrepreneur is making an adult film in his basement and Candy takes the opportunity. The way the couple of scenes of the show are shot you can see that Candy is taking in all she can about filmmaking. She finds interest in what the key & fill lights are for as well as the reflective sheet. The importance of the scenes in the show indicate Candy’s willingness to always make the situation better for herself and her learning about making films just might advance herself along. Of course, viewers are probably...

The Deuce: “Show and Prove”

The Deuce: “Show and Prove”

  Already approved for another season, the Deuce continues to amaze audiences and we are only two episodes into it. Bringing light to the grimy streets of 1970s NYC, so far we have been submersed in the popularity of pimping and prostitution.  With this episode, we see women working the streets and trying to find a way to work more money into their pockets.  When you have a pimp taking part of the cut, it doesn’t leave you with much. You could argue the main point of this episode, “Show and Prove,” was for women to show up and prove they could do it for themselves.  In the time when prostitutes were routinely...

THE DEUCE Series Premiere Review

THE DEUCE Series Premiere Review

Though we couldn’t jump on it right away this site did want to take advantage of the Advanced Screening of the premiere of THE DEUCE. We couldn’t wait until 09.10.17 to begin David Simon’s next examination of the human condition. Our anticipation is high for this one as we go back to New York City, NY in the year 1971. The city is not at its best and there is a story to tell. Here is our take on THE DEUCE: “Pilot.” The story opens up as we focus in on a little corner bar down any little back street of the city and peek through its window to find Vincent Martino (James Franco) counting the night’s till. And as he exits his...
