Haha! As a writer, editor and moderator on TV Fanatic, this is the stuff I live for. Yes, it's nice to see a post reach 250k views. But if nobody comments on it (or they're only "this sucks" or "Great!") then my job is done at the post. As a fierce lover of television, movies, books and DEBATE (surprise!), I enjoy the interaction with others very much. Regardless of any money involved, it's all about the sense of community for me. I like bringing information to people and stimulating conversation. Ditto on the 3AM posts. Hey, a gal's gotta wine when she unwinds, ya know?

Allow me to say that Nelson DeMille is one of my favorite authors. I've read The Gold Coast more than once but won't do the same with the followup. Anyway... I think you can be forgiven even if you're not "sorry" in the way you're describing it. Her husband forgave her for being human, fallible and falling in love with two men. In his eyes that wasn't something to be sorry for. That doesn't mean it's the same for all couples, but every couple is as different as the individuals inside of it.

The real story is more that Masters required sex for Johnson to remain in her position. Considering the times? Here's just one of many articles on the topic. http://www.newyorker.com/cultu... Seeming real is in the eye of the viewer. You want to believe something of women and enjoy it described in the way you desire. We're all similar.

Because Masters of Sex is based on a true story and they already strayed from reality to make it more interesting for television. There is little real about them in that program, sorry to say.

Oh golly. Just call me the fly in the ointment. I have to disagree about your take on the intimacy of the act we witnessed. Some of the best, most passionate encounters I've had were outside of a relationship. There isn't a concern about feelings or worry that someone might be offended by the power of the experience. Some men, while in relationships, have odd feelings about treating the woman they love like a trollop. That's not necessarily the way the woman feels about sex, but if a man is concerned about that feeling, it's not right to push them to do something they wouldn't want to do. Sometimes that wild side is lost the closer two people become. Perhaps none of you have experienced that, but I think it's also why some men cheat. They worry that by being risque, their wives might think they're treating them like whores. But, being in love should allow for all kinds of things if the two parties agree to it. Flame away. ;-)

I was wondering if Ray had an ulterior motive to being arrested, but it didn't feel right. It will be interesting to see if you may be on to something here.

Considering Ray is actually listening to Steve Knight, I have to assume he's lost and tired. It seems like the more he does to keep others out of trouble, the worse it is for him. All I can think is that he wants an out and Kate might provide it for him, even if he goes to prison for it. He's not interested in killing women, especially a bright and beautiful one like Kate. I wouldn't be surprised if Cookie was killed or maimed by Abby. Maybe that's why she has to choose between two protectors.

I considered that briefly, but I don't think Ezra is enough of a fool to think Avi would ever do that. Avi would take that information to Ray and it wouldn't be Ray's life in danger.

Sorry, but you're wrong. Women and men do not think alike and I'm betting there are a lot of women who needed to find their sexy side again. Women don't often cop to using pros though, so it's likely not discovered territory. If Neil didn't take risks, then he would be a complete and utter failure at his job. Money management is all about risks. He's not just selling life insurance and bonds. He's selling risk. That's how extremely wealthy people get there.

Neil didn't know about the affair for six months. I'd say we saw weeks worth of their lives. Grace had an affair for six months. Two different scenarios. There were only 10 episodes. That's a really small season. Look at Revenge. Emily has been killing for seasons now. No, it's not realistic or rational. It's entertainment. If Neil just confronted Grace and they went to therapy, the show wouldn't prod discussion like this one does. Look at it as the conversation starter it is. Look at the number of men who are partaking in a discussion about love and marriage. Kudos right there to Sean Jablonski for making that happen. This ain't no Once Upon a Time, you know? Keep digging!
