In the 1950s, the average price of a cup of coffee was ten cents, and full meals could be purchased for around fifty cents. However, at the hospital cafeteria, actors give the cashier several dollar bills when they buy a small snack or cup of coffee and receive no change back. See more »

What a treat!
7 October 2013 | by idjet_humonSee all my reviews

This is the first review I have ever done of a series, or movie, so please bear with me.

I have limited time and rarely add new content to my TV viewing, however, after reading about the series, I decided to take a look at this new one. I am totally intrigued and think it conveys the sexual culture in that time period while fleshing out the personal dynamics of researchers Masters and Johnson. The two leading the cast are Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan. They are riveting to watch.

The tone, the clothes, the music... so well done. I have only seen two episodes, yet I became aware of how far our sexual culture has changed, and despite those changes, both good and bad, we still label people even now who are sexually active or adventurous.
