First season was great, S2 was good, S3 was bad, after watching this trailer I start to think S4 will probably be horrible.August 28, 2016 at 10:44 am #1201914621
Oh. My. God. I’m glad I stopped after Season 2.September 11, 2016 at 9:13 pm #1201920800

Well, am I the only one who watched the first episode? I thought it was decent. Definitely not a masterpiece, but a solid and reliable one. S4 won’t get back to the high levels of S1, but it still has some potential.September 12, 2016 at 9:49 am #1201921012
That was a solid opener that might put Masters back on its feet. I fear that this show will be wrapping up either this season or next. Doesn’t seem like there is alot of faith in it anymore. Janney is only one getting nominations for it anymore and the constant scheduling shift doesn’t help a consistent audience.September 12, 2016 at 10:51 am #1201921033
Season premiere was okay. Some course correcting going on, which is necessary, but the storytelling is so inelegant in stretches. Where is Josh Charles? Marrying your lead to a guest star in the season finale was dumb. Where is Teddy Sears and Sarah Silverman? Lizzy Caplan was a true trooper throughout this and the episode’s saving grace. I like seeing Virginia on her own trying to get her sex column going with Hef. Masters on his destructive bent is just setting up a redemption arc, which is or isn’t all that exciting. Be apart, dammit! Especially if you’re not going by the ACTUAL histories of Masters & Johnson in getting them married. Niecy Nash tho! That was a nice surprise. Also glad to see Alysia Reiner (Figueroa 4-EVA!) adding a little spice to Libby’s storyline. Maybe that will go somewhere as the season progresses. Certainly not the trainwreck episode that awful trailer promised.September 18, 2016 at 4:22 pm #1201924040

OMG! Caitlin Fitzgerald was electrifying in that single scene of her confessing her infidelities to Bill as if nothing happened!September 19, 2016 at 12:30 pm #1201925044
Caitlin Fitzgerald has been Emmyworthy for years now, and she proved it again in that scene. I’ve been waiting for Libby to confess to Bill about her infidelities over the years (wanted it to happen at the police station in the season finale last year), but this was worth the wait. It’s high time Bill knew about Robert and Paul. The show is course-correcting nicely, from the reorganization of Masters & Johnson (not sure about the shady new doctors yet) to Virginia’s newfound business savvy (the saving grace of Lizzy Caplan) to some new show blood, particularly Niecy Nash (showing impressive range for those who typecast her in one kind of role). I think this might be a return to form season if the writers don’t blow it again with nonsense, more time jumps, ungraceful storytelling, and unnecessary melodrama.September 19, 2016 at 8:12 pm #1201925309
I cannot wait to watch Caitlin Fitzgerald on Rectify.September 20, 2016 at 1:39 am #1201925387
Here I am, E02 watched. I thought it was good, if the first one was a 7+, this was a 7.5. Totally agree about Caitling Fitzgerald’s performance, such a great actress.
I thought there many interesting moments and dialogues; my only – big – worry is related to the ending, which I fear might give this season a horrible direction. We’ll see.September 20, 2016 at 11:29 am #1201925535
I’ll be monitoring this thread to see whether I should jump in mid-season.September 25, 2016 at 5:43 pm #1201927433
Episode Title: “The Pleasure Protocol”

The writing has improved steadily so far this season. Still some rough notes present, and Josh Charles really should have been involved here if only for a cameo. But Judy Greer was a solid stand-in and made the most of her scenes opposite Kaplan and Sheen. The opening Hefner scene was pretty groovy, baby lol! Looks like the “free love” section arrives next episode.
