BTW - Anybody watch "The Deuce"?

Only seen one episode so far but I found it pretty disappointing. Like "Treme", I thought it did a brilliant job of evoking the place and time but didn't care about the characters and thought the writing wasn't strong enough (especially compared to "The Wire"). Franco is just all wrong for the role and Gyllenhaal plays herself as usual (wasn't she a prostitute in that "Sherrybaby" movie?). And of course the 70's hits are just nonstop in the background. Am I the only person who doesn't find pimps and hos particularly interesting? I'll keep watching but my first impression is that it's a fairly hollow style exercise.
