Editorial Reviews

Masters of Sex stars Golden Globe® and BAFTA Award nominee Michael Sheen and acclaimed actress Lizzy Caplan, who portray the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson. The series chronicles the unusual lives, romance and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson and the effect their research had on the family and colleagues around them. Their study ignited a sexual revolution and took them from a Midwestern teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine. Also starring Caitlin FitzGerald, Teddy Sears and Nicholas D’Agosto. Guest Starring two-time Golden Globe® winner Beau Bridges.

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.

Very well written and acted. The only negative thing I'll say is that everyone seems so miserably guilty about everything. So anxious.
Not just sex but everything. I'm 73 and grew up during that time period and the show brings back painful memories of what it was like growing up female in a time when men completely ruled women and what they did with their bodies. How could men and women have been so ignorant about female sexual response? All women needed to do was speak up, but we were shamed by people like Freud. We've improved in the past 60 years but not nearly enough. This is sometimes very painful to watch.

It took a few episodes to get sucked in, but it's a great show once you get into it. My husband on the other hand was pretty bored with it, it didn't suck him in or hold his attention. It is a slow moving show.

The first Golden Globe-nominated season of "Masters of Sex" is adapted from my book of the same name. I suggest you read AND watch the show if possible for get all the background and history of this pivotal moment in American culture. (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 was really surprised to learn that the career of Masters and Johnson was made into a Showtime original series. The writers, producers and actors have provided the audience with an incredibly high caliber show.

It's not an easy task to take such a sensitive subject, especially one that involves the lives of real people, and make it into a successful and highly regarded TV series. If an attempt was made just a few years ago to come out with a series like this, I'm sure that those promoting it would have been called crazy.

The fact that it deals with real life explicit sexual situations is reason enough for a TV network to say no to a proposal such as this. After all, the FCC wouldn't allow it to be broadcast over the regular airways. Thank goodness that Showtime stood up to the plate, as the actors in this series make for an extremely compelling and entertaining show.

From the pilot, right through all of the episodes of season one, my wife and I have been captivated and mesmerized by the nature of this series. This is as real as it gets. I can guarantee that you'll be hooked after watching the very first episode(pilot) of this incredible series. It's first rate throughout.
