Trivia

In Masters and Johnson's studies from 1957 until 1965, they recorded laboratory data on the anatomy and physiology of human sexual response based on direct observation of 382 women and 312 men aged between 18 and 89 in having sex or masturbating. See more »

Goofs

The final season depicts Masters believing in the modern idea that sexual orientation is innate and being reluctant at best to explore gay conversion therapy. In reality, Masters was a lifelong proponent of gay conversion therapy and never abandoned the practice. See more »

.. three seasons and gets better each one... keep it going...
26 November 2014 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

M&J truly achieved what they set out to do... as there are not many couples having the societal impact these two individuals implanted on the world. This production is not a documentary, and doesn't pretend to be, as a result lots of the interactive dramas played out on screen are what Hollywood might dream up.. but overall it is exceptionally good entertainment. Now deep into its' third season and it just keeps getting better. It's infidelity on steroids.. everyone is going different ways.. where it winds up bet ya the writers don't even know right now. And that's a great accomplishment, and a credit to all involved... with some very impressive writing and outstanding acting performances to match.. Lizzy Caplan is dazzling (this series has made her a bona-fide star). We all know where the real life story goes (just look it up on wiki), but this version could wind up anywhere.. and still appears it's going to remain continually enticing and impressive irregardless. Not many shows get an 8+ rating.. this one well deserves it !!
