Probably Showtime trying to programme all year round. Penny Dreadful/? to Masters of Sex/Ray Donovan to Homeland/?.

It's still Hannibal.

Arguably 2013s best new show returns on Sunday in the US. Seems like it'll be a few months wait in the UK -

Very good return, great to have another quality show on TV (other than Rectify). A lot of quality scenes with very good performances from all. A slight concern that it might be a bit similar to the first season but the study being known about may introduce new possibilities. Shame about the surely record-breaking amount of cast changes due to other shows etc.

Reviews:-

Masters Of Sex has emerged from its slumber with an opening salvo of episodes that quietly and deftly unpack that selfsame performance; as its men are compassionately exposed to be charlatans and liars, its women work around the men, picking up the pieces of discarded costumes.

Grade: A

BOTTOM LINE Better, richer, more compelling than season one.

GRADE A+

http://www.newsday.com/entertainment/tv ... -1.8727478

Masters and Johnson's work was all about bringing sex in its infinite varieties out into the open. The psychological richness of Masters of Sex positions it to be a worthy successor to the fast-fading (except in Emmy voters' eyes) Mad Men.

Just when the summer TV landscape was beginning to look a bit bleak, here comes cause for celebration: the return of Sex. And the best news is that this intelligently complex, beautifully shot and performed series comes back in top form, with a perfect match of style to substance that explores Masters' and Johnson's (the equally superb Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan) different reactions to his appearance at her doorstep.

Perhaps changes is a poor choice of words but I was referring to

Additions

Annaleigh Ashford returns as Betty with her run on "Kinky Boots" wrapped up

Leaving or shown a lot less

Ann Dowd is currently appearing on every show on television (in this hour alone, she was also on another "Leftovers"), which means Bill's mother has to be chased out of town

Beau Bridges and Allison Janney have CBS sitcom commitments, and Rose McIver's going to be in the CW's "iZombie," so will probably be barely on

Jane heads out to Hollywood with her boyfriend because Heléne Yorke is now starring in "Bullets Over Broadway."

Ethan left to join How I Met Your Father but with it not going forward it seems he might return

Ah right, future stuff. I was confused because everyone was in the first episode, apart from Ethan

Wow, what an episode of TV. Lived up to all the hype. Surely Emmy nominations in the bag for both for next year.

It was excellent, though it taking place during the duration of a boxing match didn't sit well with me. They got a hell of a lot done in about 11 rounds of boxing, which is about half an hour. Poetic license and all that of course, but it bothered me.

Yep, that was a bit weird. The time in the hotel room seemed about 2 or 3 hours at least. I expect she was in the bath for at least half an hour.

Good episode this week, maybe slightly too many stories at once but some great scenes nevertheless. Power struggles seemed to be the themes of the week. Nice to see Sarah Silverman and Courtney B. Vance join the cast, they made a good first impression.

Woah, gooseberry fool went down all over the place in this ep. Could have been a season finale.

Caught a random episode of this on tv yesterday and was mightily impressed. Will have to get into it for real.

Have to say I'm puzzled at its unpopularity with hardly any GRcaders watching it and it being moved to More4. It's by far the best show of the summer with great performances across the board and has nudity in it.

I'm watching as well although I'm way behind. It is fantastic though.

Yeah I watched the first season as well with my girlfriend, but we haven't started S2 yet. It's a great show
