Trivia

Allison Janney had a clause in her contract for this show stipulating that she would not do any full nudity, but after a few episodes playing Margaret she felt confident enough and understood that it might be dramatically necessary to do so, and she eventually did it in the powerful scene in which she shows her breasts to Barton and realized he's not even looking at them.

Goofs

The art seen in Virginia's child's comic book is of a modern style. Additionally, the printing of the comic book is modern and not the four-color printing that was in use at the time. See more »

So Far So Good
11 October 2013 | by sitanshugreatSee all my reviews

Afer finishing up with Breaking Bad, I switched to Master of Sex. Because it was something different, something that has caught my imagination. I have seen two episodes so far, and I'm impressed. The series has an interesting premise and it definitely looks great on the television.

What I found interesting about Masters of Sex is that it has managed to dignify Sex. Most of the other TV shows(Game of Thrones, for instance) throws a random sex scene just to titillate us. But here, it is all for a purpose. A purpose that Masters has safeguarded for a long time. It will be interesting for the viewers to see how the story unfolds.

I am really looking forward to this show. I hope to see some pleasant episodes in the future.
