    Amazing show, fantastic characters. Such a shame don't get the recognition they deserved, but I think the series will be remembered and praised in the future.

    Season 3 is a very clear step down for the Deuce...Abby as a character couldn't be less interesting, there is frequent preaching (and more than a bit from ill-informed angles), storylines are repetitive, and the overall approach has gotten heavy-handed and sloppy. Overall it isn't miserable, but it's very disappointing at best.

    The Deuce ends very nicely in its final year, and honestly the only criticism might be that there was still more story to tell. Entering the 80s, The Deuce certainly focuses on the detrimental effects of excess, but as with the last two seasons it retains a gracious feminist touch. All the characters are well fleshed out here, although sorely Maggie Gyllenhaal's character of EIleen doesn't quite get the send-off one would hope (the finale hints on a path for her that could have made for an entire other season!). That said, The Deuce's final sequence is rather unforgettable, managing to be both emotional and thematically relevant, and it acts as one of television's grandest love letters to New York City. If not top-tier HBO (I.E. The Wire, The Sopranos, Deadwood), The Deuce is still likely in the top 20%.

    Just couldn't continue watching a series on the beginnings of the porn industry, merchants of sleaze.

    Franco and Maggie are magnificent again in its final season, and its message is still strong even if they have to rush the narrative to conclude with a bang.
