Tv Season Info

Dans les années 1970, les films porno à petits budgets se vendent sous le manteau. Cette première saison met en vedette deux frères, Vincent et Frankie Martino, qui tiennent un bar et fricotent avec la mafia, Candy, une prostituée qui réalise que le secteur émergent de la pornographie offre un bon potentiel, C.C. et un souteneur qui contrôle le réseau de prostitution autour de Times Square. Il y a aussi Abby, une étudiante arrêtée pour possession de drogue, ainsi que Chris Alston, un officier de la NYPD très au fait de ce qui se passe dans les rues. Au fur et à mesure de la saison, les vies de ces personnages hétéroclites se croisent de manière inattendue et parfois dangereuse.

    F@cking D.S. knows how to tell a story and expose the truth. Glad i m around to see his work

    The Deuce is dense and almost mythically fascinating; in other words, it's a perfect -- albeit bleak -- representation of 1970s New York City.
  • Dec 23, 2019
    La historia, la ambientación y los personajes son grandiosos en esta historia sobre los origines del porno en esta zona de Nueva York que se transformaría en Times Square en un par de décadas.
  • Oct 28, 2019
    The show and it characters feel so real that you basically relive the period with them. Great show.
  • Oct 21, 2019
    This is a very interesting depiction of sex and New York. I loved it.
  • Mar 18, 2019
    A very entertaining romp with a fantastic performance from Maggie Gylenhall. Having Franco in one of the lead roles is a bit of a problem for me as he comes across as quite slimey, and with the subject matter and what is going on in Hollywood at the moment, it feels a bit wrong to have him in this part. If you can get past this then it's definitely worth a watch. One thing I have to ask-did people dress like this in the 70s? Whenever there is a film/show in this era then it's like the costume designers collectively lose the plot and dress people up in some badass gear. But seriously, DID PEOPLE DRESS LIKE THIS!

    Plodding pace and some poor casting. Watchable but not recommendable.
  • Dec 29, 2018
    A powerful character drama from David Simon that remains highly watchable its entire runtime.
  • Dec 09, 2018
    EXCELLENT!!!!!! James Franco is brilliant.
  • Sep 17, 2018
    I binged watched the first season and want to set my self on fire for wasting so much time on this piece of garbage. There is a great story here but instead of using smart storytelling, writing and acting, they decided to capture their audience with porn. And not even high quality soft core porn. Yucky Maggie Gyllenhall "The Secretary" icky porn. Bleah.
