While there is a murder to be solved (frequently referred to as "our last case"), it's a perfunctory distraction at best to Shawn's main concern: how to tell Gus that their bromantic partnership may in fact be over. read more

Weekend Playlist: Masters of Sex and Homeland, Breaking Bad Finale on Jam-Packed Sunday

Caitlin Fitzgerald

All work and no foreplay makes Dr. William Masters anything but a dull boy.

With the assistance of a free-thinking single mother named Virginia Johnson, this renowned fertility specialist and pioneer in the study of sexual physiology challenges the repressive social mores of the late '50s, when Peyton Place is considered risqué and most people (according to Masters) "sit hunched in the dark like prudish cavemen filled with shame and guilt" when it came to thinking about sex.

The Office Closes Its Doors: Producers and Cast Reflect on American-izing the British Series

The Office

A single-camera, mockumentary-style comedy following the employees of a paper company in Scranton, Pa.?
