THE DEUCE chronicles that moment in time when sex went from being a back-alley, brown-paper-bag commodity to a billion-dollar universal in American life, a moment when ground zero for the earliest pioneers in the flesh trade was the midtown heart of the nation's largest city, New York's Times Square.

Critic Reviews for The Deuce: Season 1

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (24)

The Deuce demands you dive in to its vice-filled world. You may feel a little dirty and tainted afterwards but it is so electrifying, you won't be able to resist its sinful charms.

The Deuce is the dirty lowdown, with much of the action below the belt. There's nothing pretty here. But in the eyes of this beholder, you'll otherwise know great drama when you see it.

Those compelling, artfully drawn characters keep you enthralled even as the show goes about the slow business of showing how pimps, prostitutes, the mob and police helped turn a back-alley pursuit into a billion-dollar industry.

The rightful heir to The Wire.

The Deuce is fascinating for taking us back to a time when any kind of porn imaginable wasn't available on whatever device you're using to read this.

Top Critic

The Deuce can't hold all of its many pieces together, despite the pockets of strong writing and performances, making viewers bounce around a visceral world with just not enough emotional gravity.
