Mistress of Sex Vs. True Dick: Where’s the Emmy Love?

28 Aug

True dBy Madeline Iva

Matthew Mcconaughey did not win the Emmy for his pessimistic brainiac role in TRUE DETECTIVE. He was robbed. Robbed I tell you.

Why do we care? Because Bryan Cranston’s win was Matthew Mcconaughey’s loss, and that’s just not right.

Although, Mr. TRUE DETECTIVE can’t exactly cry me a river can he? “So you won the Oscar, the Sexiest Man Alive and now you want the Emmy, too?” Harrelson quipped. “Isn’t that a little bit greedy?”

I still say Mccaunghey deserved the Emmy over Bryan Cranston. I’ll admit BREAKING BAD had the most engrossing–if confounding–father/son-ish bromance going on, but after all the years of all the other Emmy wins, did they really deserve to sweep the Emmy’s again? I think not.

Masters of Sex, where the women are smart, and the men are good looking.

But my real tears are reserved for MASTERS OF SEX.  I’m glad Allison Janey won, because she’s wonderful.  All the acting in this show is quite excellent.  Almost everyone plays a bit against type. The show is full of richly layered characters, in a Mad Man-esque sort of way. It features my favorite fantasy: smart women paired against very attractive, if somewhat tortured men.

Yet I am probably most impressed with Michael Sheen. For Michael Sheen to go from chewing the scenery as King of the Lycans in UNDERWORLD to this uptight and repressed product of his time, who is still earnestly curious about how sex really works is wonderful to behold.  I mean, my lust for Mcconaughey’s body aside, Sheen is the one who really deserves an Emmy.  Hell, I’d give him an Emmy just for his exceptionally good taste in dating Sarah Silverman.

Now I know other folks may not appreciate the show.  Some (including my husband) have pointed out that the show is nothing but talking heads interspersed with some artful moaning by a naked women on a bare table having another orgasm.

Just another woman moaning with pleasure. Something we could see a lot more of on TV.

Just another woman moaning with pleasure.

My response is So??? What’s wrong with that?

MASTERS OF SEX is about the revolution of women.  Did we really think women could become equal to men while still sexually hobbled?

The show reveals the evolution of sexual enlightenment in the modern age, and that’s something to celebrate, people.

It’s a show that’s all about authoritative societal repression vs. bacchus — and bacchus almost always wins.

The show is an advocate for of the good side of sex that empowers people–especially women–no matter what form it takes.

To my mind it deserves as many Emmy’s as they’ve got.

Meanwhile, if you want to stimulate your happy zone, follow Lady Smut.  We’ll give you pleasure every day of the week.

    Hadn’t thought of the show in this way before. Yo are right of course. We cannot be equals if we are sexually hobbled.
