As the free-thinking, twice-divorced single mom who might likely single-handedly spark the sexual revolution, she's [Lizzy Caplan] the shining beacon of the fall 2013 season. Consider us hooked.

Masters of Sex is definitely something that a television viewer looking for quality, intelligent dramas should check out.

Without making any extraordinary claims for it, it is easy to watch and to recommend, mostly sweet-natured, with a host of well-shaded performances and almost nothing to insult your intelligence.

Although it's a medical drama on one level, Masters of Sex is frequently laugh-out-loud funny, with romances, mysteries and coming-of-age stories unfolding throughout its large cast.

One thing I didn't expect was to be left crying so many times throughout the hour. It's ... moving.

The series is at its best when it abandons its vaguely intimate depiction of sex and allows its subjects to become fully enveloped in the importance and strange beauty of the undiscovered frontier they're exploring.

Based on the first six episodes, we're being introduced to a show that can enlighten, entertain and contend for Emmys, all in the same breath. And that's great.

The creative team behind Masters of Sex clearly seems to be planning for a marathon run. Here's hoping that the series shows more kick down the entire backstretch, rather than just the last five minutes of each episode.

Call it sex with a side of education, or the other way around.

By keeping Masters' heroic qualities firmly within the realm of his research, the pilot... falls into another trap entirely, that of the biopic that must explain the importance of its subject.

When Masters of Sex allows its focus to shift to the true masters -- the female characters -- the series shows promise that it could eventually develop into a can't-miss, smart, character-driven, period drama.

We've got two skilled leads on Masters of Sex, and now that the exposition is out of the way, here's hoping they can finally get to work.

Given that a show set in the '50s feels like the freshest take on sexual relations in awhile, it's easy to agree.

Masters of Sex is an intelligent, assured drama that gets better and better as it goes along.
September 30, 2013
Sheen can be funny and charming one moment, highly disturbing the next. Yet, his rare ability to get us to like Masters, warts and all, never wavers.

Masters of Sex is sprinkled with moments that make it worth watching... As is, it feels like some very professional foreplay with no end in sight.
