From Masters of Sex to Boardwalk Empire: How Accurate Are Fact-Based Dramas?

Lizzy Caplan, Steve Buscemi

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. In a strictly factual sense, it's also mostly made up.

The Cast of Orange is the New Black on Conan

This week, members of the Orange Is the New Black cast took over Conan for an episode, and it was glorious.

10. Best Impression: We're just going to pretend Zach's ridiculous gameplay this week on Big Brother is his impersonation of the recently evicted Devin. How else to explain his awful moves once he gets a slight taste of power as HOH? The highlight of Zach's stupidity comes at the nomination ceremony, where he compares alliance member Christine to notorious Season 14 floater Jenn and calls ...

Weekend Review: I'll Take Manhattan

Manhattan

Remember when nostalgia used to signify a comforting escape into the past? It hasn't been the same since Mad Men took us beneath the surface glamour to expose the grim consequences of chasing and selling the American dream. WGN America's bold new period drama Manhattan (Sunday, 9/8c) goes even further, eschewing the romantic veneer altogether in a gritty story of scientific mavericks operating in extreme circumstances. Looking back at a bygone time (World War II) with a jaundiced eye, the ambitious Manhattan is far more serious in intent than the channel's more recent effort at historical-fiction original programming, the lurid Salem.
