Evocative and provocative, this fact-based drama is most invigorating when showing how the findings helped ignite women's lib.
It's faintly depressing that, half a century after Masters and Johnson helped liberate human sexuality, a TV show about their lives should so often reduce it to the cringeworthy jokes they were trying to free all of us from.
It got better the longer it went on (the show I mean). So far, it's pretty seductive.
Like Bill Condon's seriocomic film Kinsey, Masters of Sex takes a sociohistorical perspective on a subject of inherent fascination to us all.
I really appreciated how this episode, perhaps more than others, allowed the men of Sex to have a voice as well.
