Who Are We Kidding, Showtime Is Shameless All Of The Time

Why else would they have a new series called the Masters of Sex starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, based on the real life mid-twentieth century sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson? To quote Wikipedia:
"Their findings, particularly on the nature of female sexual arousal (for example, describing the mechanisms of vaginal lubrication and debunking the earlier widely-held notion that vaginal lubrication originated from the cervix) and orgasm (showing that the physiology of orgasmic response was identical whether stimulation was clitoral or vaginal, and proving that some women were capable of being multiorgasmic), dispelled many long standing misconceptions."
So... right up Showtime's alley, really. Plenty of opportunities to feature nudity, sexual situations that are both dramatic and comedic, and Beau Bridges in a reoccurring role. Actually, from what I've just now read (on Wikipedia) these two do sound like they'd make interesting subjects, especially when they start dealing with Master's attempts to "convert or cure" homosexuality, which Johnson was against. And I'd watch Lizzy Caplan open cans of cat food while being snide, so I'll definitely check it out.

But being Showtime, I just know that there will be something about this show that makes me want to jab a fork in my eye.
