Masters of Sex

Setting-wise, this brand new show is successfully surfing on the aesthetics created by 'Mad Men' - dashing 1950s fashion and stiff gender roles.

The plotline - true-life authors of the groundbreaking Masters & Johnson-report on human sexuality - allows for both TV-nudity (breasts, no dicks) and detached, scientific verbalization of the issue. 

High-reaching, this series also broaches a wider range of subjects (infertility, homosexuality, parent-children relationships, female emancipation...) and does so with skill and sensibility.

An extra plus for the gorgeous opening credits!
