Masters of Sex Season 2 Promo: “Keep Your Heart Out Of It”

30 Jun

Experiencing upheaval aplenty in the new Masters of Sex season 2 promo as Virginia and Bill commit to something that goes way beyond the study. “No strings” gets a whole new meaning after an encounter that doesn’t involve their usual wire setup. At the end of season 1 Bill lost his position at the hospital after his grand presentation was received in an extremely negative light – the dudes didn’t seem to mind the ‘size doesn’t matter’ assertion, just everything else to do with women that came after. Now Bill has no job, a newborn baby at home and a wife who is frazzled and trying to encourage him to find work outside of his obsession.

Masters of SexRendezvous in hotels and Virginia’s apartment means the clinical blue robes from the hospital are ditched for terrycloth and floral ones (the latter I am coveting pretty hard) and things are getting far more intimate after Bill’s rom-com like rain soaked declaration at the end of season 1. Virginia is indispensable to both Bill and the study, but there are obstacles aplenty including Libby and I feel just as invested in her as I do Bill and Virginia. Familiar faces return including Dr. Lillian DePaul, Dr. Austin Langham and Betty with her husband Gene the Pretzel King (who we last saw in episode 3) offering Bill a solution.

Leaving your heart out of it is advice that Virginia and Bill probably won’t stick to as emotions seem fraught and heightened in this new promo, which has me clamoring for this new season of Masters of Sex (back Sunday, July 13).

New “Masters of Sex” Teaser: There’s Nothing Polite About Making History

18 Jun

Showtime’s Masters of Sex doesn’t premiere until September but this new teaser gives us a glimpse of what we can expect from Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as the Masters and Johnson sexuality research team. Following the work of Alfred Kinsey (the movie Kinsey is a good place to start and features a whole host of familiar faces such as Peter Sarsgaard, Laura Linney and John Krasinski), William Masters and Virginia Johnson took on the science of human sexuality research baton and were pioneers in this field.  This new drama chronicles the lives of both Masters and Johnson and the work that they did that helped kick start the sexual revolution.

This teaser shows that there will be humor in their work and revelations that will change how sex is discussed in the private and public sphere. I’m very happy to have both Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen on TV and I’m looking forward to seeing their trajectory from this ’50s setting as researchers to landing cover of Time magazine.

Masters of Sex premieres Sunday, September 29 on Showtime.
