“The Deuce” Goes To L.A.

I don’t love the series, but I loved the opening of last night’s “The Deuce”: CC (Gary Carr) opens up a car trunk and takes out his pimp cane. He is at the airport, taking his first flight. “Will I need my coat in the plane?” he asks Lori (Emily Meade), who is playfully teasing him about his naivety and lack of understanding about time zones. “We go back in time? I don’t play that shit,” he says after being told about the three-hour difference between his native New York and Los Angeles, the emerging hotbed of porn that the couple are due to visit for an adult awards show.
