Masters of Sex is Showtime’s upcoming drama about the research team of Masters and Johnson (and based on the book by Thomas Maier). It’s a highly anticipated addition to the Showtime lineup, especially now that Dexter is almost finished (thankfully, I should add, because that show took such a deep nosedive in quality that the awfulness of the final season is almost impressive).
Masters of Sex hasn’t even premiered yet but it’s already a standout on the network and I can easily see it becoming a hit. The pilot is funny, smart, and weirdly sexy. Lizzy Caplan, as always, is flawless and we’re all so helplessly in love with her. In fact, the entire cast is great: Michael Sheen, Beau Bridges, Allison Janney, and Margo Martindale are just a handful.
The series premieres September 29th (and we’ll have more thoughts on the pilot then) but you can watch it via youtube right now.

Homeland returns for season 3 September 29th at 9PM
On the one hand, I’m really excited about this because my teen self wants nothing more than to see Josh Hartnett in a horror drama on a weekly basis. On the other hand his character is described as “charming and brash but there are demons behind his eyes” and Eva Green’s is “enigmatic with haunted eyes and utterly composed” and that just sounds awful.
Tig Notaro, a comedian that you should definitely familiarize yourself with, is performing in homes across the country this August for a show that’s being produced by Showtime. Everyone should apply and, if you’re accepted, invite TV Hangover to attend.
We’d watch Lizzy Caplan in anything, but we’d especially watch her pair up with Michael Sheen for Showtime’s upcoming series Masters of Sex.
Ray Donovan, a new Showtime series from the creator of Southland, doesn’t premiere until June 30th but you can watch the pilot episode right now.
Two story lines in Homeland that need to go away or get resolved quickly.
Brody and Carrie need to stop their romance. I am not sure if it’s just me, but whenever I see the two of them kissing I get so annoyed and fast forward through their scenes. Wrap this up fast please Homeland writers.
The romance/hit & run between the two teenagers needs to go away forever. It’s just an awful story line and completely unnecessary, unless I am missing something central to the overall story, but I don’t think so. Send them off to separate boarding schools and let’s just see them in 2 minute phone call scenes. Thank you.
