Showtimes' new series following the lives of Masters & Johnson, based on true events, regarding the original sex studies that shaped generations.

 

Premiere was made available on Demand for today only by Showtime.

Brief review: love the cast, love the concept, and this could be a really fantastic story well told.    I had a chance when I was in college visiting UMSL to see where a lot of this work happened, and it is amazing how many different discoveries made there that changed our view of human sexuality, reproduction and anatomy.  

 

Really strong production values.   Showtime is definitely coming out swinging lately, combined with Homeland, this should make for a hell of a Sunday night pair.

While their research is the most forethinking...it is also the most flawed.

 

Kinsey kept it too clinical(which is why his is considered the base of everyone else's).

 

But...interesting stories be told I am sure. I just wonder how far off "facts" Showtime will go.

I have to say, seeing Mae Whitman (Parenthood) make an appearance tonight was classic.  This is rompy fun, it's a bit too much on the drama side and not enough on the science side, but it's still entertaining

The funniest part was seeing the male rabbit passed out after reaching coitus completion.

The "ooh lala" factor made me check this out but even ignoring that aspect of it, the show is quite good.

This show works.  While the sexual subject matter may draw people in, the story with the surrounding cast is quite good.  Allison Janney was fantastic as the provost's wife who had not had not experienced an orgasm.  Her walk to the elevator after realizing this fact was bittersweet and sad, as she tried to figure out who that made her as a person.  I liked everything about that sequence.

 

The performances in this show have improved week to week and it seems as though the actors have really found a grove with this.

Yeah, it's finally finding its emotional footing in a clinical environment.  :D

Yeah, Janney is always great but her work here is good even for her.

This show really hit a stride a few weeks ago, and it manages to really work in a lot of the difficulties, relationships and the nature of their work.

 

There are a lot of different ways this show could have went, but I have to give props to Showtime for playing this amazingly straight and really providing a heck of a cast.

I don't know anyone besides myself who watches this show (though I also don't know anyone else who has Showtime so that does narrow the field) but I'm hoping it gets some Emmy recognition so it can get a much deserved bigger audience via Netflix.

I've stumbled across this flipping channels a few times. It does NOT work well in that format, I think I need to give it a start from the beginning. The talky bits seems exhaustively maudlin in the scenes I have seen, especially where the older cast is concerned...

Took me all day to get through this week's episode because I kept getting stopped and had to restart.  Great stuff, though.. it handled a lot of the issues I had wondered about.  Allison Janney continues to rock this show; it makes me a bit sad to see her just kill it in this and then deal with crap dialog in a sitcom the next day

I think there are going to be a lot of people who find this after the first season runs and marathon it.. what a treat they have in store.   Last night's episode touched on a whole lot of different subjects and did so quite well, including a few things that really surprised me how they played out.

I've always liked Lizzy Caplan. 

 

She has that same glow that Mimi Rogers does...if you know what I mean...
