I enjoyed it a lot, Libby is something else, she is a fascinating character. I watched it Saturday, it was available early on Directv On-Demand.

If she was, I didn't notice her. I read a little about the part she will be playing and I doubt very seriously she was in this episode

This may have been the best MoS episode ever. Incredibly acted scenes which were filled with emotional discourse. All the main characters were great as were the kids.

I enjoyed it a lot too, but the reviews seem to be moaning and groaning about it, which doesn't surprise me. I thought it was a good episode.

I enjoyed the show. Libbey kissing Virginia and saying that she always wondered what it was like with her was priceless. Libby is wise and full of surprises

The reviews seemed to ignore the quality acting and the issues confronting the adults in a very odd arrangement. Watching adults deal with kids is always annoying, to some extent, but the scenes between masters and his son were excellent.

Libby is amazing. I am glad she is finally willing to put bill behind her.

I actually did not like the episode. It felt like I was watching a completely different series. Dor me it was a C- at best.

I hope for better episodes time. But if it's like this 2 or 3 more times, I'm gone.

I enjoyed it. However the advisory at the end telling us that the children and events depicted were fictionalized. Next weeks show will delve into Masters' work on the Saturn 5 rocket.

You can see the full scene at pornhub.com. Do a search for Emily Kinney.

this show is a bore. almost every character is an emotional wreck. The main Doc dude is usually so troubled, I find him painful to watch. The only fairly cool man in the show is the perfume seller. The episode with the ape was a joke.

Didn't recognize Emily Kinney.

Yeah that gorilla ep. Was weird. She has to flash the gorilla to arouse him to mate with the female gorilla?

I enjoy this show although the story line can be a little soap operaish. However, it may be the best acted show on TV. The performances by Sheen, Caplan and Fitzgerald are tremendous.

Poor Libby, she's there for the long haul and then wham, doofus gets a conscience all of a sudden. She's probably my favorite on the show, I like Betty a lot too.

I binged the three seasons via Showtime streaming and enjoyed the experience. I thought the "jump" from season two to three was a little too far and it took a while to get back into the characters. Felt I missed out on a lot... especially regarding the kids.

My two favorite episodes were "Fight and "Party of Four" I realize they are way different but at times I couldn't help but think of Betty ("Man Men") as Libby dealt with her "inner grief" The characters are very well defined and true to themselves.

Couldn't agree more. It was alternately very touching and laugh out loud funny. This ensemble cast is one of the best on TV with Caitlin Fitzgerald really getting a chance to shine this season.

This Sunday's episode was the best hour of television I've ever watched. I DVR'd it but every time I watch this show I always think to myself I'm so glad I watch this show.

These are just my opinions.

So they married and that was it?

While Libby goes to law school, though that may be fictional, as were some of the kids.

Very disappointing to hear this. MoS was one of the better shows currently on.

Slim pickens these days to find well written drama that hasn't been done 100 times before.

Atlanta, Outlander, Rectify, The Americans, The Knick, and The Affair are all worth looking into.

It's bewilders me that The Affair is still on and they cancelled this show? I looked forward to this show, I'm sad.

Eh, I didn't pay close attention to the stories on MoS. They fictionalized so much and they ended it as if everyone was in a happy place, including Libby, the woman they humiliated with blatant cheating.

Nudity was about the most notable thing, though the early seasons with them having to fight the conservative establishment at the hospital and the closeted guy was well done.

I have to disagree and it seems most critics do as well. This season especially the show was plummeting. The Virginia character was a shell of her former independent self and Bill Masters character almost seemed autistic.

It was a great concept but just fell completely apart. I was ready to cancel the season pass but they saved me.

There really is a lot of good stuff on these days.
Shameless
Fargo
Bates Motel
Better Caul Saul
Unreal -season 1
This is Us

Just to name a few and when it comes to Netflix !!!

You and I watched different shows. Virginia's insecurity grew throughout the series and even reared its head on the steps of the courthouse after they got married. Brilliant writing. Bill loved Virginia but was terribly hurt by her inability to commit to him. And even after they got married he knew he still had to worry about her.

I have watched every Shameless episode since day 1 but that series has run its course. The stories lines are bad repeats of prior story lines. The Kevin / V stuff is unwatchable.

This Is Us is horrible. They claim they are about real people but it certainly isn't about real life. I wanted to like this show but it is too unrealistic.
