Storyline

Wow!

Want a replacement for GOT? I watched the pilot for The Deuce last night--it's up on HBOnow, even though it is not scheduled to premier until Sept 9. Wow! If it holds up, it will be a masterpiece. Don't say I didn't tell you. Recreation of the era is mesmerizing for those of us who lived through it. The writing, acting, mise en scene, all jaw dropping. James Franco playing two characters is accomplished simultaneously in a few scenes with special effects that are worth the price of admission alone. Directed by one of the Breaking Bad regulars.
