It must be difficult....
18 September 2017 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

I will keep this short. It must be difficult to make the subject of 1970's New York 'Times Square scene' boring, but the producers of this drivel managed to do just that. The tales of prostitution and porn industry fall flat, and every idea is surprisingly tired and stale. They might have gotten by on the aesthetic qualities, but even that is pretty awful. Despite efforts of recreating 1970's NYC, this show looks and feels patently 2017. As someone who is obsessed with this time period, and who rarely watches films made after 1980, I'm sad to find this effort so disappointing. Throughout the pilot's 90 minute run time I found myself wondering why anyone would bother watching a fake reinvention of this time period, when there are so many New York based films from the incredible 70's to choose from. I do realize that this didn't have the kind of budget to really create an authentic period piece, and maybe my expectations were too high. But it is possible to do this right; just look to "American Hustle" for an example. I do suspect that the makers of "The Deuce" also recognized the shortcomings of this project, which is why they threw in those cheap scenes of women sucking (obviously fake) prosthetic penises. That was a lame attempt at shock value, that came across as silly and embarrassing. I actually tuned out 10 minutes before the end credits because I found the goings on uninteresting and mind numbing. I also suspect some of the "rave reviews" are written by paid HBO plants, in order to generate interest in a lackluster production. But that trick will be as ineffective as all those rubber penises..A huge disappointment.
