Third & Final Season of ‘The Deuce’

9.4.19 Since the very beginning, I’ve been loyally watching HBO‘s gritty drama, The Deuce. Each season has been worth the binge-watching. I can watch it over and over again, but it’s a shame that this series is not getting the recognition it deserves. The third and final season is coming on September 9, entering the era of the 80s and the AIDs epidemic. Here is a preview of what’s coming…   The Deuce season 3 chronicles the dying days of Times Square as the heart of the American sex trade. It is the eve of 1985, and the party’s winding down. 42nd Street has deteriorated into a hive of uncontrolled violent crime and seedy video stores, making urban renewal seem more unlikely than ever before. But change is on the way: just as VHS overtakes film as the primary medium for porn production and distribution, the lure of the California sunshine, the city’s aggressive takeover of commercial sex properties, and the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic mark the end of an era. The fall …
