Masters of Sex Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

MASTERS OF SEX is a one-hour drama starring acclaimed actors Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, who portray the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine and nearly a dozen appearances on Johnny Carson's couch.

A fascinating look into a subject that affects everyone. I like that it looks at broader topics than just the sex aspect, covering the illegality of homosexuality as well as the civil rights movement. The pacing can be a bit slow at times but the storyline was artificially advanced in episode 7 of season 2 when almost two and a half years are covered in a single episode.
Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan are great as Masters and Johnson and I'm excited to see what the future holds for this show.

Masters and Johnson changed everything. The things we know now we might take for granted that It's obvious and we've always known that, but we see in this show (and if you read their published works) we didn't know squat about human sex and sexuality. And we're still learning.

Base on true facts, the series shows us how sexuality and the knowledge we have on it was studied. Sometimes dramatic, sometimes funny with a little bit of science here and there.

Masters of sex is a period drama about the study of human sexuality. This is done purely in the pursuit of science and to advance society's knowledge on the beginning of life and the study of sex. Showtime chose an odd subject to base a television series on but the story is well written and done in good fashion. If we can understand the science behind what the mind and body go through when having sex... we can unlock a new chapter in human history (as doctor Masters would put it), a sexual and spiritual revolution.

Masters is an instant classic. Provocative, educational, and phenomenally executed. Unique beyond words is this adaptation of the real life story of the creation and tribulations of the Masters and Johnson sexuality research team. A must watch!

An interesting period piece based on real Masters and Johnson, although I am not sure how accurately.
