    My wife and I have followed this from the very first episode. It is absorbing, funny, dramatic educational, entertaining and very sexy. Please do not consider anything but more seasons!! The cast is simply perfect with the characters growing season by season and becoming truly credible.

    Well done to all involved! More please!

    I agree with EVERYTHING positive that EVERYONE has posted about Masters of Sex. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show!!! I hope it keeps going for a looooong time. The writing & acting is SOOO much better than the usual pap that’s spoon fed to the public….and….the fact that it’s based on the lives of 2 REAL people makes it even MORE interesting. Please keep these kinds of great shows coming on Showtime. Thank you.

    I definitely am looking forward to season three of masters of sex. There is so much more of the life’s of Master and Johnson to build on. I can’t wait for season four or five. The writing of the show is captivating and the characters are intriguing. I really hope Showtime keeps Maters of sex airing for a along time. There is so much more to the true story of Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson yet to tell.

    I’m more than gratified that Masters of Sex is returning for a third season. I truly believe that once people view some of the most compelling episodes such as “the Fight, Giants, Blackbird and Asterion”, they will want to go back to view the earlier missed episodes and thus get hooked for the season. I believe Sheen’s, Bill Masters, performance is incredibly intriguing and outstanding and Caplan’s work as Virginia Johnson is the best. She is irreplaceable for this show. And more importantly, her face just radiates across the screen with a glow of beauty and smarts. I hope we have fourth and more seasons to come.
