Good episode? Give it some love!
Simon and Pelecanos (creator/producer of 'The Wire') talk about their new HBO series 'The Deuce,' which takes place in 1971 New York City, when the streets were rife with sex workers and the porn industry was beginning to take off. "The 'pornographication' of America has been profound," Simon says. "You don't have a multi-billion dollar industry operating every year and not have it transform the way we think about ourselves and each other."
