    The majority of the interweb is dedicated to lascivious appetites. There is no good justification to waste prime time-slots on their vile frippery, masters of lewd.

    let me start this review by saying vagina vagina vagina, line of boring dialogue followed by some very bland look **** and the some discussion of **** gay or fornication with a stone face in the name of science. If I wanted a porno I would watch a porno this hybrid does nothing for body or mind.

    It's a smart show that plays dumb at first, just to get your attention. Masters may not yet be as groundbreaking as the true drama that inspired it. But like Betty, it knows how to fake it until things get real.

    The dialogue isn’t always subtle, but it’s often sharp.

    Masters of Sex is an intelligent, assured drama that gets better and better as it goes along.
