Masters Of Sex
Some of the storylines mightn’t be as compelling or engaging as previous seasons, but there’s no denying the stellar cast and impressive sets and costumes that make Masters of Sex a sophisticated pleasure. Tonight, Virginia (Lizzy Caplan, who looks like she was born to live in the ’60s) resists her mother’s matchmaking schemes. Bill (Michael Sheen) tries to spend time with his son Johnny, but, not surprisingly, his plan backfires. Meanwhile, Libby (the statuesque Caitlin Fitzgerald) reveals the truth about her neighbour’s plan to leave her husband. With a prevailing theme of fantasy not matching reality, this smart series is still ticking along pleasingly. Stars Michael Sheen (pictured).
