You only know someone when you fight them

The critics all agree — ‘Fight’, episode 3 of the second season of ‘Masters of Sex‘ was a master-class of what television is capable of achieving in the art of storytelling.

Exquisitely paced, delicately told, and played with a tough vulnerability by Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplain, it was a dance around the ring between their characters, while telling a bigger story about masculinity, respect and gender relations. Playing out in a single hotel room over an hour, the episode was riveting, symbolic and heart-rending for any watcher of the show.

The teaser below doesn’t begin to show what it was about.
