I think this is my favorite new show of the Fall TV season. I appreciate any form of media – TV, film, radio programs, websites, etc. – that help challenge social norms and get important conversations started. And in the 1950s sex and sexuality were definitely topics no one in polite society talked about. But this show is about so much more than that. I like that Lizzy Caplan‘s Johnson is a woman who knows what she wants and goes after it. I think Michael Sheen‘s Masters is such an interesting contradiction in terms. On the one hand he’s interested in the truth of human sexuality and on the other he won’t tell his wife he’s the reason they can’t have a child. Is Beau Bridges‘ Provost Scully more worried about his reputation than what Masters’ pioneering and groundbreaking study can bring to the university? How does Nick D’Agosto‘s Dr. Haas think he can possibly make up for his actions towards Virginia? There is so much potential for drama here and I’m looking forward to it all.

From Showtime:

On the heels of Masters’ proposal that they participate in the sexual response study, Johnson considers the best course of action to keep her job – only to find she no longer has one. The study has been forced out of the hospital and Masters believes Johnson is to blame. As Johnson fights to save her job and struggles to care for her kids, Masters moves his study to a brothel. But Masters soon discovers that the chaos of the cathouse is unmanageable without Johnson’s help.

Masters of Sex airs Sundays at 10/9c on Showtime.
