Masters of Sex on SHO

post #1 of 98
Thread Starter

MASTERS OF SEX stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a midwestern teaching hospital to the cover of Time magazine and multiple appearances on Johnny Carson's couch. He is a brilliant scientist out of touch with his own feelings, and she is a single working mother ahead of her time. The series chronicles their unusual lives, romance, and unlikely pop culture trajectory.

Shouldn't William Masters be....like.....bald? I mean, the guy was a cue-ball, probably from birth. C'mon.

I'll give anything with Lizzy Caplan in it a shot, I've been a fan of hers since the short lived 'The Class'.

Very good point.

I'm in it for the actor Beau Bridges, he's great.

Not that popular I see. I asked both my parents about the series and they were familiar with it.

So what did they say about it? You didn't finish.

Ha. Sorry, I had one too many beers.

They didn't say much, just said Masters & Johnson are well known. They'd like to watch the show.

We'll see if this show is a reason to keep subscribing to Sho.

Though I guess they're airing it at the same time as Homeland Season 3? As messy as that show has become?

don't know how this series will be, but Homeland and Ray Donovan, themselves, should warrant keeping Showtime
post #10 of 98
Well I watch almost every original series on HBO and Showtime or else I wouldn't subscribe to them.

Homeland Season 2 had a lot of eye-rolling moments though, like Brody texting Nazir from the situation room, just as they were going to kill Nazir.

Lizzy Caplan? Yes, I'm definitely in as well, I don't even care what the show is about, if it's got her in it, I'm in. biggrin.gif

Um, no. If William Masters isn't old & bald, which he kinda', you know, was, it's just another show with...boobies! Although, to be perfectly honest, on occasions that's been enough. tongue.gif

Looks like the first episode is available on-demand on Directv. I'm downloading it now, I've got conflicts at 10:00 tonight, or I wouldn't bother with it.

looks boring as hell and nothing really screams out at me saying 'Must Watch'...it has been getting decent reviews so maybe I'll check it out...Showtime is trying to lure people in by hinting at rampant sex and nudity every week but we know better...only HBO does that biggrin.gif

Well of course people are going to be lured since "sex" is in the title. Would think most men would flock to it biggrin.gif

Prob. not my type of programming but I'll check it out.

Eh, I got bored at 30 minutes. Might be the time period it was set in. Just didn't appeal to me

I much preferred Hello Ladies on HBO. It has the same time slot, will probably watch that instead.

I only watched because of the surprisingly good previews it got and I must say, I liked it.  The story and acting and period are all well done and the story is actually interesting.  Lizzy Caplan really steals the show and I will see how this one develops.  They very successfully deal with the sex as part of the show and not simply use the theme for a Spartacus type boobfest.
