I have come (sorry about that
) to love this show. Much of it is wildly funny but once in a while it jerks our chains and is moving instead. It's connection to the historical Masters and Johnson is tangential indeed but it is wonderful. I am pleased that Season 2 already has the green light.
An example of both the humor and pathos of the show came in the elevator when Lillian, the brilliant but socially clueless hospital doctor trying to get her cervical cancer study asked the hospital's big boss about his wife, learned that the man's wife was chairman of his country club's membership committee, and then (unwisely in the event) asked him, "What's your wife's handicap" and he said, "She had polio as a girl but with a cane gets along as well as you or I." Oops!
As funny as it was, it was also really sad. Poor Lillian! Is it any wonder that I am loving this show?
Finally, why is it that so many of us watch Homeland
, also on Showtime, but so many fewer of us seem to have become involved in this thread?Edited by gwsat - 12/4/13 at 5:24pm
