If you’re like me, you’re probably way behind on way too many shows already. I was a big fan of the first season of “Masters Of Sex,” a terrifically entertaining drama that’s smarter than the title suggests, and genuinely moving at times too, led by the pretty great pair of Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen (not to mention the show has earned three Emmy nominations, a nice surprise). But summer is here, I’m way too busy with a million other things, and last night I just couldn’t catch up with the start of season two. But thankfully, Showtime is making it easier for me (and everyone else) to get caught up.
In an increasing trend, the network has put the entire first episode “Parallax” online for your viewing pleasure. Michael Apted returns to the show and directs this entry (along with the next two), and the AV Club were big fans of the season two kickoff, saying it “continues and builds on the impressive momentum that charged this show from season one.” Those are some good words to hold me over until I finally square away some time to sit down and dive back into “Masters Of Sex.” Watch below.
