Several weeks ago, my TiVo lost its mind and ate my Masters of Sex
season pass. As a consequence I missed Episodes 7, 8, 9, and 10. Today I setup a new season pass, watched 7, ,8, and 9 on Showtime Anytime, and have episode 10 setup to record on my TiVo tonight.
I continue to be deeply impressed with the show. Masters is a self-centered and delusional, gold plated a**hole but as much as I detest him I can't take my eyes off of him. His sexual dysfunction has struck me as Just Deserts.
Virginia is an around the bend risk taker but in her own way seems to love Masters and God help her with that! Masters' wife, Libby is a child woman, completely oblivious to Masters' treachery. I want to feel sorry for her, but have a hard time generating much sympathy. The bottom line is that despite the absence of the endlessly intriguing Scullys, played by the great Beau Bridges and Allison Janney, I like the show as much as ever.
I should add that I also enjoyed the performances of Christian Borle as Masters' brother. He is a fine actor and is a Broadway musical theater star to boot. He had a featured role in NBC's "live" production of The Sound of Music.
