Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 12 recap Ha! Okay, this show doesn’t go for the cheap laugh or any laugh, per se, but I didn’t mind that line from Lester. It was a much needed moment of levity in an episode that seemed like it was going to break under the weight of its own revelations. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 11 recap. Wow. This show has never been anything other than an investigation of gender – it’s not even about sex, really, given that Masters and Johnson haven’t pinned down ways to investigate the x-factor that is attraction.   No, the show is about men and women, and what it means to be each, and what can be done to change the looks of the role you were assigned to. Full Story

Boom.

Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 10 recap The first and only episode of Rags to Riches I ever saw was about the threat of the nuclear bomb. Kids in grade school were doing practice sessions for when the air raid sirens went off, and then at the end, they all sang “Drift Away”.   It confused me, as did this episode of Masters Of Sex. Full Story

Masters of Sex Season 1 Episode 9 recap Do you remember the most exciting conversations of the first couple of months away at school? It doesn’t matter if you didn’t go, you still know the ones I’m talking about. After too many Mike’s Hard Lemonades (Ugh, I don’t miss you, 1997), someone starts getting daring while talking about, you know, sex, and someone else one-ups them, and the whole thing feels very naughty and titillating even though nothing is actually happening and half the people are lying? Yeah. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 8 recap Okay, I know. We’re above the break on the site, but come on. Vaginas, on this show, are not spoilers.      I’ll tell you what though, I am pretty surprised at how liberal everyone is about sex.   Maybe I thought 1957 was more taboo than it obviously was, but Jane sasses about greeting each new person in the study with a wink and a smile, and Margaret Scully was the only one who didn’t have sex until her wedding day, and it turns out the Provost’s hang-ups about sex are, um, his alone. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 7 recap. So. Suppose I told you I was watching this show, um, not on broadcast channels. As such, sometimes there are, er, anomalies. To cut to the chase, this is the first time I’ve seen the credit sequence, and I don’t know if that’s because it’s new as of this episode, or because of other…reasons. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 6 recap Oh, Libby. I knew there was a reason you were on this show and not an annoying, insipid actress but someone who had actual dramatic heft (Caitlin FitzGerald has been in everything), but this still made me sad.   It’s sad from the beginning, of course. Full Story

Masters of Sex Season 1 Episode 5 recap. Well. Is anyone watching this show except me? Because it is just really satisfying. That sounds awful to say in the wake of this week’s deeply sad episode, but you get the idea. I just don’t know if people are exploring these ideas – about families and genetics and how your sexual self is like the rest of you – anywhere else, and it’s valuable. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 4 recap There’s an inclination to be whispery and respectful of certain people after their deaths, and I certainly think that’s mostly appropriate. But sometimes it precludes things that I really miss – like how funny Heath Ledger was when he asked of Bianca Stratford, “What is it with this chick? She got beer-flavoured nipples or something?”  See? You just smiled. Full Story

Masters of Sex Season 1 Episode 3 recap Hard not to see, right? Everywhere women are on their backs, waiting for something to happen to them (in one memorable case, orgasm that never arrived) and it’s men who stand there and demand results one way or another. This is true in the case of the quadruplet story, which to me was way underdeveloped – let’s meet the mother who was so unaware of what was going on!  What does this mean for her? – as well as in the “Betty is thwarted in her quest for children, which may actually just be her quest for the Pretzel King” endeavour. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season  Episode 2 recap I really hate the expression “I am X show’s/celebrity’s/concept’s bitch”. I hate it a lot. In addition to being reductive and simplistic, it is, like all other bad expressions, really overused. So I’m going to have to figure out another way to describe how I feel about Masters Of Sex. Full Story

Here’s what I know you want to know – is this show clinical and kind of boring, or sexy enough to be titillating viewing, or something in the middle? One of the things that happens is that dudes who say “How does Wesley Snipes from 30 Rock get to have women like Kate Beckinsale and Rachel McAdams?” will continue to say that. Full Story
