Very well written and acted.

For us scientists it really brings out many of the trials and tribulations of research and humanity.
Lang Luckenbach
The arc these characters have is possibly the most moving and honest of the show so far.

Masters of Sex is my favorite show of 2013. It's eye opening to be shown a time when women had very few rights and almost no one had a clue about their sexuality or their own bodies for that matter. Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan are fantastic. Their chemistry is so palpable and their acting is top notch.

Speaking of top notch Allison Janney is absolutely heart breaking in her role as the provost's wife. She makes you ache for her. The sadness of her situation is deeply felt thanks to her incredible acting. She moved me to tears more then once. I loved her performance.

This show despite it's time frame is so relevant today. We owe a lot to the brave research of Masters and Johnson. Master's of Sex brings their lives and struggles to life in such a well done manner. I absolutely cannot wait for Season Two to begin!

Sex.

Let's just think about that word for a moment and what it means. To the world of today, sex seems to be just another word, because it pervades every part of our life; our literature, our news, our culture. in the world of this show though, set in the 1950's, sex was something that married people did merely to conceive a child, and no one EVER talked about it, much less studied it. However, when William Masters and Virginia Johnson started their pioneering work at Washington University, they were on the edge of a revolution that would change the way that couples all over the country regarded sex. And while this is the basis for Showtime's brilliant new drama MASTERS OF SEX, it's only part of what the show is actually about, which is one of the things that makes it so good.

Masters (the brilliant Michael Sheen) is one of the country's leading obstetricians, celebrated to his abilities to help couples conceive. He won't deny anyone his care. His brilliance also has led him to become incredibly arrogant and dismissive. His wife Libby (Caitlin Fitzgerald) is an intelligent, beautiful, and somewhat antiseptic woman who is proud of her husband but ashamed of herself in her inability to conceive for him, believing she's incapable of pregancy. Masters' young protege, Dr. Ethan Haas (Nicholas D'Agosto) is a amazing young surgeon who is looking for the right woman. Due to the nature of his work, Masters wants to begin an official study of sex and all its aspects with funding from the university, which goes right up against the grain of the medical school's provost, Barton Scully (Beau Bridges, in his best role in years).

Dr. William Masters wants to know what happens to the body during sex. To find out, he and his assistant, Virginia Johnson begin to observe anonymous couples and singles as they engage in various kinds of sex. But things get complicated when Masters and Johnson decide to participate in their own study.

Michael Sheen is dead on as the coldly serious William Masters. He deserves his Golden Globe nomination and if there is any justice should win. Lizzy Caplan as Virginia Johnson exhibits a warmth unknown to her counterpart. They are opposites driven by a common goal. Caplan should have been nominated for a Golden Globe and should have won. How could she have been overlooked? For me, the Golden Globes have lost all credibility. Masters of Sex is easily the best dramatic series on television.

Starts out with lots of promise. Sharp and mature - then it starts to drag. Like so many series it has at least 4 episodes of "fill"...I just lost interest.

The first Golden Globe-nominated season of "Masters of Sex" is adapted from my book of the same name. (the new TV-tie-in edition of the book is also available on Amazon Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the Couple Who Taught America How to Love). I think the show does a fabulous job of translating the Masters and Johnson story onto the screen.

I was glued to my TV set during every episode. Superb character development and great acting by the lead characters as well as others in their supporting role. I was going to cancel my Showtime subscription until this series came along. It is always challenging to create a series based on actual events and the writers, actors and producers are to be commended for an excellent job. Will definitely buy the DVD as soon as it is available and cannot wait until Season 2.

This is simply one of the best television programs I have ever watched. The cast and the acting are wonderful. The director, producers, videographers, sound technicians and, in fact, the entire crew, all deserve the highest praise for their work on this show.

The screen play is superb. The dialogue is so natural, compelling and smart. Of course in their lives these were all remarkable men and women living and working together.

A slice of life and a homage to the late fifties and the views regarding sex that were prevalent at that time in our country, the USA, and the world. Men and women who are younger than forty will find it difficult to believe how ignorant people were regarding sexual response in men and women.

Masters and Johnson's work woke America up, if one only took the time to read the findings of the original study that was eventually published in a format that non-medical professionals were able to read and understand.

Looking forward to season two of Masters of Sex.

PS - Highly recommend this Showtime production for mature teenagers (15 years and older).
