Couldn't find an existing thread about the start of this new show starring Michael Sheen tonight at 9pm on Channel 4. Some good reviews. Looks very good.

Oops, I started a thread in TV UK, but redirected it here.

C4's Real Sex season has been - er - weird, but this is from the Showtime stable, and stars Michael Sheen and Lizzie Caplan as William Masters & Virginia Masters, the pioneers of research into human sexuality. It intertwines their research and their private lives in an interesting way.

I've already seen it on RTE, and the first episode was great television.

85 is a very good score. Showtime usually make quality shows so this should be very good. The period detail is amazing. Hope it's better than the film Kinsey which was boring.

His American accents needs work. I keep hearing his Welsh accents slipping through.

I've seen the first 3 eps, and I think it really gets into its stride by ep.3, so don't give up before then!

I found the first episode to be err... interesting. Martin Sheen is a fantastic actor but I found that it dragged a little too much in parts. It could have done with pruning down to a shorter episode length.

Michael Sheen.

Don't know if it's an hour and fifteen minutes every week or just the pilot.

I just finished reading Love and Other Dangerous Chemicals - a rom com by Anthony Capella. The book is about a uni research study into female sexual dysfunction and mentions that the US slang for Johnsons comes from Virginia Johnson.

Woops. Well spotted.

Would love to see Martin Sheen and Michael Sheen together in something. Two of my favourite actors.

Good stuff. Knew he'd want her to sleep with him. Purely for scientific research purposes of course. lol

Hope not, that'll confuse me no end. Enjoyed it a lot, although I did spend a lot of time wondering about the bust sizes of some of those actresses.

Let's see whether the ratings hold up or if people only tuned into the first one out of curiosity.

I liked it although it'll be interesting should it get further seasons how they develop the story since the study was over a long period.

It was interesting that Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale are both in Masters of Sex as recurring characters as both star in The Millers.
