Watch the pilot of Masters of Sex online right now.
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.
