Lizzy Caplan in Masters of Sex
I’m only halfway through the pilot and I am so into show/Virginia Johnson. GET IT GURL.
"Before I get into any kind of defense of this episode, let me make clear that I don’t necessarily dispute the charge that it’s the show’s worst. Outside of its mastery of the obvious, Imperioli’s script includes plot points that are completely dissonant with the characters. Carm and Ro may be big on church, but how often do we see them at lectures? Would AJ read Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States at the breakfast table? The latter moment is, in fact, so unlikely that — in what feels like it could have been an edit from David Chase (or whoever was tasked with salvaging this episode) — Tony comments on its implausibility. The dialogue itself is frequently laughable. Redclay actually utters the words “This is a major PR boner” to his assistant, in reference to the Iron Eyes Cody news. (Never mind that Cody’s lineage had been public knowledge for the better part of a decade before the episode aired, and an expert on Native American history would not have needed a poster-toting mafioso to break the news about it.) It does a great disservice to poor Karen and her distraught widower, Bobby, that her sudden, accidental death had to be the B-plot of this particular episode.
What I take exception to is the idea that The Sopranos is too good, too pure for the occasional frank discussion of identity politics. In the aforementioned Gary Cooper monologue that ends the episode, Tony knocks Sil off his high horse. “Did he say, ‘I come from this poor Texas Irish background… my people got fucked over’?” he asks, lamenting that today Cooper would be speaking out for “the abused cowboys, the gays.” When Sil says, “People suffered,” Tony counters, “Did you?” Of this speech, VanDerWerff observes, “The show rarely allows Tony to be unequivocally right, but it seems to agree with him here that it’s fine to be proud of your heritage, but what really matters is who YOU are.” He concludes, “It’s not a bad life philosophy, particularly coming from Tony, who can be kind of an oaf about these things, and it stands in marked counterpoint to an entire episode made up of people complaining about who’s had it hardest.””
