In The Deuce S3, VHS is changing the porn industry forever

This series may be about the porn industry but it’s far from smutty. Rather, it’s an intelligent, fast-paced look at a moment in time when porn was something a little closer to art.

Starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Deuce is set in the 70s and 80s. It follows the interconnected lives of Times Square’s barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police, mobsters, porn actors and producers, and is streaming first on Showmax in South Africa.

The Deuce S3 now available to binge-watch

In the third and final season, we’re in 1985. VHS has become the primary medium for pornography and the Aids epidemic has changed the industry for the better. The Emmy-winning show stars Franco as twins Vince and Frankie, and Maggie Gyllenhaal as former sex worker Eileen, also known as Candy, who becomes a successful adult film director.

Binge-watch all three seasons of The Deuce on Showmax.
