Everything You Need to Remember Before The Deuce Returns For Season 2
For many shows, the depiction of sex is sensual, romantic, and, well, sexy. On HBO's sleeper hit The Deuce, which details the lives of sex workers and the rise of pornography in the 1970s, the sex is something entirely different: gritty and raw, mostly devoid of emotion. For a show with sex at its epicenter, it's the characters who drive this superb drama.
There are sex workers and pimps, porn stars, police officers, and publicans, each one trying to make a living in a time in New York City where everything was made more difficult by violence, racism, and poverty. Before The Deuce enters its second season on Sept. 9 and continues to delve deep into the seedy business of sex, remind yourself how the action wraps up in the first season.
