An absolutely fascinating drama about the real-life sex researchers: William Masters and Virginia Johnson. As the title suggests--there is definitely nudity and mature content, though the focus mainly stays on the scientific aspect of their research. This series, by far, has some of the best written female characters I have ever seen on television. With brilliant writing, a cast of impressive actors, and a basis in history, this show has quickly become one of my all-time favorites!

There were nudity and simulated acts, nothing over other top-rated cable series. The smart and often humorous screen play on multiple social issues during the 1950's were acted out by an outstanding attractive ensemble. In between the study, the love stories were touching and sprinkled with many knee slappers, favorite was the marriage proposal in the cafeteria.
