Masters privately treats a couple for infertility; Johnson gets in over her head when she tries to treat Barbara Sanderson on her own; Libby witnesses a hate crime that is whitewashed by the police.

Man it's frustrating having a show this well acted and directed but with so little to say or do. I'm interested in seeing more on the dysfunction aspect of the study, but the other melodrama is really getting old. Nice to see Roz from Fraiser after all these years.
The previews for next week's episode looks more promising than these past ones have been.

Are we supposed to think Bill has impotency with Virginia now? That's not what I was taking away from his lack of sex with Libby and his trouble with prostitues last week. I thought it was because he only wanted Ginny.

I like the show much better with the two year jump.

I thought this was a return to form after a strange and mostly aimless season. This show is at its best when it is focused on the study and the thematic and character aspects of the show develop from that. The racial stuff is still an odd inclusion to me, but I guess they need to give Libby something to do other than be ignored by Bill, and that part of the story looks like it could be improving too.

This was better than last week and maybe, just maybe the show will get better - since the first half wasn't very good.

I thought they dropped the racial storyline in the jump in timeline, but I guess they brought it back... and Libby still has that jungle fever.
