Showtime's "Masters of Sex" Trailer Features Plenty of Cold, Hard, Clinical Non-Reproductive Fornication
With the exception of Shameless, I’ve not really been that keen on the programming of Showtime since early season “Dexter” and “Weeds.” They know how to attract a great cast, and often the concepts are well developed, but the writing on much of Showtime’s slate is second-rate., see, e.g., “Ray Donovan,” the second season of “The Borgias,” the last four seasons of “Dexter,” the last five seasons of “Weeds,” and “Nurse Jackie” and “Episodes,” two shows I tried but could never get into.
Hopefully, that may change with “Masters of Sex,” which again attracts an excellent cast with leads Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, and a provocative premise in that it’s about the early study of se by the real-life William Masters and Virginia Johnson.
The trailer looks … well, if you can focus with all the soft-core sex involved (NSFWish), it looks promising, although with all the soft-core sex involved, who is going to be paying attention to the writing, anyway?

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
