Masters Of Sex 3.10

  • Scenes with Bill or Virginia seem cartoonish, while scenes with Barton or Libby feel real and emotional. Both of them are underused, and get nowhere near enough screentime. Masters & Johnston (the main characters) are now a liability to the series. At least in this silly storyline.
  • The script is clever. Characters seeing themselves through another eyes. It’s a theme. It works. But the central love story no longer works. No longer engages.
  • Best character? Any character that isn’t Bill or Virginia! In order: Barton, Libby, Betty. Any scene driven by one of these three is pretty much magnificent. Betty’s speech to Barton, re: homosexuality, was - I thought - powerful.
