The Deuce makes an instant and distinctive impression with its scruffy atmosphere, highly specific period detail and a dizzyingly rich cast of disreputable characters.
[The Deuce] is a compelling and gritty new drama.
Bursting with energy and decked out in a run-down look, The Deuce could be TV's next great drama.
[The Deuce is] about taking a non-exploitive approach to an industry built on exploitation. As visually spellbinding as this particular vision of 1971 is, there is nothing nostalgic about it.
[It] delves straight into it, setting a tone that's just as delightfully pulpy, and introducing a cast of pimps, sex workers, gangsters, and cops (including twins played by James Franco) that rivals Game of Thrones in sheer scope.
The Deuce means business.
The Deuce makes a promise not to shy away from all things dark, dirty, and unsettling.
Overall, The Deuce opened well. It weaves a tapestry as diverse and smeared as the population of its titular street trekking through a particularly rainy day.
It's a nightmare, and highly reminiscent of Bubbles' tour of Hamsterdam in season three of The Wire. That scene haunted me for a long time; I wonder whether this show might do the same.
The capitalist critique is no less potent for being obvious, especially given the panoramic approach Simon and Pelecanos adopt to illustrate its toxic reaches.
The pilot features a whole lot of ... well, atmosphere is putting it generously.
