My favorite new show is Masters of Sex on Showtime. Great characters based on actual human sexuality researchers Masters and Johnson, but with terrific actors and compelling [fictional] plots that reflect the times in which M&J were doing their groundbreaking studies.
If you haven’t watched Homeland yet, you must. I’m new to it, having used Showtime’s Homeland marathons to get caught up in time for Season 2.
*Yes, that’s on purpose given the Brody storyline.
Homeland in a nutshell:
CIA agent Carrie Mathison and her colleagues in the counterterrorism unit investigate Marine Nicholas Brody in order to determine if he was turned during his eight years as a prisoner of war and is now working on behalf of Al Qaeda.
There’s a twist, though. Quite a few twists really.
First of all, Homeland dared make a ginger a sex object AND IT WORKED! DamianLewis‘ Brody is very, very hot. He’s also British, but his American accent is perfect.
