    There's only one thing I think of, when I heard the phrase "The Deuce"...and it's not pretty.

    Agreed that it's a horrible name, but the premise sounds interesting. I wonder what the name is a reference to.

    Franco's playing twins. Idk. Maybe The Deuce is in reference to them?

    It's a David Simon show, it's going to be the best thing on when it airs.

    But I wonder how many potential viewers will simply see the title and move on...

    Yeah, it's a David Simon show, so I'll give it a try.

    But if it's not good I'm dropping it.

    Watched Show Me A Hero a few weeks ago. Was not a fan. Will give this a shot but won't slog through if I'm not enjoying it.

    Terrible title, I agree.

    Mmm. I have Show Me a Hero cued up but haven't started watching yet. I've been wondering about the lack of buzz surrounding it, given that it is a Simon production. I'll definitely be watching this new series (new name, please?) as Maggie Gyllenhaal is one of my favorites.

    A lot of people felt The Wire started slow and got better. I loved it from the first scene, but with Show Me a Hero it started out slow but I was still interested. To me it got slower and more depressing until the end. But hey, it's real life. :)
