Revolves around mysterious disappearances, world-wide, and specifically follows a group of people who are left behind in the suburban community of Mapleton. They must begin to rebuild their lives after the loss of more than 100 people.
One of the most important contributions of their work was identifying the four stages of sexual response: 1. Excitement phase (initial arousal) 2. Plateau phase (at full arousal, but not yet at orgasm) 3. Orgasm 4. Resolution phase (after orgasm) They showed that these occurred in both sexes. See more »
In the introduction sequence, the quarter being inserted into the vending machine behind Michael Sheen's name says, "Quarter Dollar" under Washington's profile. This design was introduced for the "50 State Quarters" program, which began in 1999. A quarter from the time of this show, set more than 40 years earlier than this TV show, would clearly show the year of minting beneath Washington's profile. See more »
Fantastic writing, direction, acting, production. Great story.
Note that these comments come after I've "binge" watched most of the first season.
The scripts for Masters of Sex are seamless stories, building up to warm, supremely human moments, all reverently observed and craftily delivered in the product. This is the stuff of great drama. I love exposition that grabs me by the lapels and compels me to understand the destinies of the characters; and this production does exactly that.
Whew! Now that I've gotten the mythos out of the way, what about production? No balls dropped, anywhere. Sets, props, costuming, shooting, sound, editing--the rest of it--are all done with peerless professionalism.
From top to bottom, wonderful, funny, powerful, unfolding human events. Enjoy. Cry. Behold.
