Halfway through the pilot episode of the Showtime series Masters of Sex, which is based on the story of real-life sex researchers Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson, Masters leaves his wife, Libby, in the care of another doctor as she undergoes infertility treatments so he can slip into a neighboring examination room and watch a prostitute masturbate... It's an amazingly rich six minutes of television that manages not only to set up most of the first season's major plotlines and underlying emotional tensions, but also to explain the story's historical import.

What if your future was the past? And could you leave your old life behind for a new one? That's the question Starz's highly anticipated series Outlander asks.
Based on the wildly successful book of the same name, Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a combat nurse in 1945 who's swept back in time to 1743. Immediately, Claire finds herself fighting to survive a clan of soldiers and in an effort to keep suspicions at bay she marries handsome Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). As the two develop a relationship, Claire is torn between her blossoming romance with Jamie and her feelings for the husband (Tobias Menzies) she left behind.
