I smell another masterpiece in the works.
This David Simon produced look at the Deuce circa 1971 just as pornographic films were 
allowed to be screened and sold has come out of the gate going 1000 miles an hour.

I watched the first 2 episodes last night and was floored, it was excellently written, performed and directed.
If you were a fan of THE WIRE, this has the same feel to it, this has my highest recommendation.

I don't know if I will see this thanks to my personal ban of TV. However, the word "deuce" gets a bit of a flack from me. I used to live around that area about ten years later, and we never called it "The Deuce." But I am still searching! I will grant that the word may have been used, but the word seems too freely used these days.

I agree, like Grindhouse, the overuse devalued the phrase a bit.

But this show seems like pure gold to me.  In general I watch virtually no TV at all last 10 years.
It's just so much garbage and I have better things to gawk at :)

Watched the TWIN PEAKS thing, meh.  Some great moments, but overall a train wreck.
This show on the other hand....expect major awards next year.

I am searching for that term, though. I spoke to someone who may be involved in the series at some future date, an artist/musician, and asked about the word. He mentioned something similar, but said that particular expression didn't exist when he was around. He's a bit older than I am, but he would seem to know. Meanwhile....
