Well I waited a few days as I am not a threadmaker but no-one else has stepped up.so here goes..
The Duece takes place in new York city in the 70's, it depicts the underbelly of the gambling and sex trade industry ,and it's evolution as more
"Forward-thinking" profiteers recognize the money to be made in porn. Instead of, or in this case ,along side, prostitution.
I found the first episode to be a mixed bag.
While the characters are interesting and the dialogue is decent, I find myself wishing they didn't use the twin gimmick with James Franco.
I realize most people would disagree , but I find JF to be a talented actor. As a comedic actor, no so much, but when he takes on a serious role he
shines. He doesn't need the twin brother gimmick in my less than professional opinion.
That said, I really did enjoy it overall and was thankful that they did it tastefully, there was not as much gratuitous sex as you would think
considering the subject matter.
On a scale of 1 to 10 on the auto-tune dial.
I give it a solid seven with high hopes as the series develops.
Looking forward to everyone else's opinions!
