That we know of.
Riptide (pilot and first regular episode of that 1984-86 NBC detective/action/adventure series w/Perry King, Joe Penny, Thom Bray, et al.)
- Last 2 Deuces (Season 2 is slightly better than Season 1, though both are consistently good).
What is Deuces about?
One trailer is worth a thousand words...
It´s an ensemble story of the people who lived in the N.Y. area known as "The Deuce" (next to 42nd Street), ran by mobs through low-class losers who strive to make a living and not die in the attempt. It reflects quite carefully that period and that part of the city that now is gone. It is kind of "Masters of Sex" meets "Pose"...meets any Scorsese movie, but more realistic and less fanficcy...Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Franco (playing twins), "Revenge"´s Margarita Levieva, and many others are in it. Not for all tastes. The third season will wrap up the story.
Mindhunter (Netflix). Set in the 70s, it's about FBI agents trying to get into the minds of criminals, both real and fictional. Not sure yet if I like it or not. I was slightly bored the first half of the episode, it got better in the second half. I will probably watch episode 2 and then judge.
I really thought I was going to love THE DEUCE, but I didn't. I don't hate it, and it looks great, but after watching a few episodes of season 2 I decided to give up.
But I love the remake of the Elvis Costello song which was used for season 2's opening credits.
