The Deuce strikes an invigorating tone of moral flexibility as it confidently executes its ambitious themes in rollicking fashion.
For being a Christmas episode, it's not quite as heart-warming as you might expect - it's got one of the most harrowing scenes we've seen in recent weeks - but progress is still being made.
The Deuce is so elegantly laying it all out for those of us who get to just sit back and watch at home.
Without ever witnessing a scene of money changing hands or graft being spread, it's remarkable how cynical and minimalist The Deuce can be by implying rampant corruption.
Somebody please let Maggie Gyllenhaal make movies.
I think it's a testament to what The Deuce is doing that it manages to be so utterly queasy without becoming unwatchable and highly moral without every feeling prudish.
If you've been watching for the past six weeks with the hopes that The Deuce turns out to be the next Wire, "Why Me?" will reward those hopes.
It's the first installment of David Simon and George Pelecanos's period piece that doesn't feel like bits and pieces stitched together, but a cohesive whole.
The episode is focused on the effect of reform.
