One more clip of Lizzy Caplan in Masters of Sex (s1e9)

MoS is another example of a good show that ran too long, and eventually jumped the shark. They simply exhausted the details of the real Masters and Johnson, and started to become a generic show about the era.

I hope American Gods doesn’t do something like that. The source book, which is full of weird fun, and twists its way to a nice neat resolution, will still be fueling season two. I hope they don’t try to continue the story after the book’s tale has reached its climax and finale.

(Let’s face it: if people are watching, they will keep going. Money rules, art drools.)
