This last episode of Masters of Sex, S02E03 "The Fight" absolutely blew me away. This was no doubt the best character driven episode I've seen on television this decade. And boy, it was SO HAWT! There was one scene in particular, well -- let's just said Spontaneous Human Combustion is an understatement to describe that one. Wait, actually, there were two. Oh. My.
You know that feeling, when you're watching something so perfect, you get goosebumps and your stomach is doing little flips of "Oh my God I can't believe they just went there!" IT WAS LIKE THAT!
And the layers of characterizations, THE LAYERS!!! It was an absolutely outstanding study on what 'getting naked' really means.
Lizzy Caplan and
Michael Sheen deserves a truck load of Emmys and Oscars for this performance - a huis clos in a hotel room.
I could write pages and pages of review about this, sadly, Mulder, there's no time.
Why yes, Bill, I liked it very much. Thank you. *lights cigarette*
ETA: Time said the show hit a "narrative G-Spot" and it's exactly what it was.
