The Deuce

Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

Last two episodes were fantastic. Particularly Stretch's reaction at the end of last nights (same situation as Dennis Wise from the Wire). Hope this show doesn't go the way of that show "Vinyl".

Glad to see Anwan Glover aka Slim Charles on a show again. Dude was one of the best characters on the wire.

How was this fudge? Didn't hear very positive things and never ended up watching it since it didn't get renewed.

I dont think HBO would cancel a David Simon show. I mean the Wire had terrible ratings although amazing critical reviews and they let that go 5 seasons.

^^I think he's referring to Vinyl.

Pretty sure the Deuce got renewed after the first ep aired

He has a great scene in last Sunday's episode. He was one of my favorite characters from the Wire.

This show was over cast and self indulgent imo, I usually enjoy Bobby Cannavale as he was great on Louie and especially Boardwalk Empire, didn't make through much of Vinyl.

The Deuce is definitely my favorite show out right now - fun and easy to watch, tons of colorful and interesting characters. Even if what's happening isn't all that exciting sometimes, the atmosphere is intoxicating and fun to be a part of.
