Show Summary

Masters of Sex is a Showtime series set in 1956 which features Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters (a well-known fertility specialist) and Virginia Johnson (a former nightclub singer). The series chronicles their unusual lives, romance and pop culture trajectory, which saw them go from a Midwestern teaching hospital to the cover of Time magazine and Johnny Carson's couch. Also staring Caitlin Fitzgerald, Nicholas D'Agosto and Teddy Sears, the series is an adaptation of Thomas Maier's book, "Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How to Love".

    Well acted, dramatic and fantastically filmed show about the pioneers of sexual education. I keep being reminded of Mad Men, just with way more sex appeal and the great feministic touch of Miss Virginia Johnson. Bravo!

    for that's what the writers and director of the show must be. The road to sexual liberation was never about just sex, but about breaking the smoke mirrors of all kind of discrimination and venturing new frontiers. The road to televisual liberation passes through quality shows like this one!
  • A show about sex

    This show is one of the best scripted shows on television at the moment. It's more than the sex, it is about the struggle for achievement. The actors make the whole show so believable and although it is based on a true life story, the fusion of fiction and reality is seamless.. Awesome
  • Can't believe this isn't getting re-capped here for season 2!

    9.0
    This is quite possibly the most nuanced, well scripted AND acted show on right now. And there are some good shows on, so that's saying a lot. Still, many shows just can't compete in terms of delivering a quality episode week after week, where the writing and acting and directing crews are all bringing their A-games.



    The fact that this engrossing story of sexual, gender, racial and relationship politics in the pre-sexual revolution 1950's wasn't carrying home Emmys left and right is astonishing. Even more astonishing is that so few from MoS were nominated.



    Allison Janney did take home the prize for guest actress and deserved every golden inch of the statue.



    Give her character ten minutes of viewership, and I guarantee that you won't be able to tear your eyes away from her portrayal as Master's boss's sexually and emotionally neglected and aging wife. Lizzy Caplan as Virginia Johnson is also quite fabulous.



    It's characterizations are of people that are immensely real and flawed, yet at the same time their motivations and conflicts are less about dramatics and more about the human condition.moreless
