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 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!

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.

This show is well scripted it's more than sex, it's about the struggle for achievement. The actors make the whole show so believable and although it is based on a true life story, the fusion of fiction and reality is seamless.. Awesome.

Masters of Sex is a show about relationships. Making sex a normality rather than a spectacle, Masters of Sex focuses on the psychology and social values surrounding sex at the time. Like Spring Awakening, this show analyzes characters discovering themselves expertly.
