Masters Of Sex/Ray Donovan

Offering a chance for fans to watch Lizzy Caplan discuss sexual technique in the clinical method of their most historically curious fantasies, Showtime's upcoming Masters Of Sex casts her as the Johnson to Michael Sheen's Masters, the researchers whose study proved instrumental in teaching America that sex was not a gruesome, painful endeavor that existed to create babies made of pure shame. The network offers a brief glimpse of the show here—including a scene where Caplan offers an intimidating-looking crystal dildo thing to Beau Bridges—before moving on to its fellow freshman series Ray Donovan, in which Liev Schreiber plays one of TV's many "fixers." Alas, the one thing Schreiber cannot fix is his family of braying Boston accents made sentient, who cause violent, gangster-y problems for him that go well beyond Masters Of Sex's mere repression.
