I tried really hard but just shut it down after watching first episode and last episode
to make sure the middle would be a waste of time.

I'm so glad they took out the raunchy nudity and language . A nice clean view of the burgeoning porn industry

Since the persistent theme of The Deuce is the degradation and abuse of women, it was ironic to see James Franco who has been accused of sexual misconduct... I wish they had cast a different actor. I have always liked Maggie Gyllenhaal and watched this series primarily because of her starring role. I did not like the disco years when I lived them. The positive aspects to the season are the rise in the roles of black men as actors rather than just abusive pimps, the increasing acceptance of homosexuals and the escape of one bright prostitute from the life. The disappointments were the continuing exploitation of the women over and over again, the boring aspects of filming porn, the acceptance of degradation by Candy to get a check for her movie ( sadly things have not changed much in 40 years - Harvey Weinstein is a case in point. ), and the roles of the police and mafia in the porn industry. There could have been a new story line involving the hx of the Stonewall riots, gay pride marches, and by 1981 the curse of AIDS. For me few new aspects were added in season 2. Disappointed.
