Masters Of Sex
Thursday, SBS, 9.30pm
It’s stylish (the period sets and costumes spanning the ’50s and ’60s are drool-worthy), it’s sophisticated (a remarkable trait, given its subject matter), it’s often funny (again, a given considering the subject matter and a team of talented writers) and Masters of
Sex also isn’t afraid of dark subject matter, a fact cemented by the last week’s episode. Tonight, in “Undue Influence”, Bill (Michael Sheen, pictured) tries to cajole Virgina (Lizzy Caplan) into making the study – and him – her number one priority again. Meanwhile, Tessa (Isabelle Fuhrman) struggles to come to terms with her horrific ordeal and Barton (Beau Bridges) is unable to let go of lies.
