As for the Starz Marketing Team, on the one hand I have to give them credit: they’re keeping the buzz going through a very long hiatus (to the point where I’m getting exhausted with it). On the other hand, I feel they’re creating a false premise of the show. Roxane Gay writing for NYMag was clearly expecting a sexy romp and every week wrote how she was let down because of the “plot that kept getting in the way of the sex.” I saw a lot of comments on that site along those lines. Sending out a tweet of what amounts to an up-kilt shot felt not only disrespectful of the lead actor but also to the show itself. I said on Twitter I found it alienating because that’s not why I watch this show. YMMV.*

*YMMV = your mileage may vary

The plot kept getting in the way of the sex???????? I just don’t get it.

There seem to be a lot of tv fans who are acting out of the same perception. That’s why I don’t follow a lot of people on Twitter – I don’t even want to see the comments that are out there.
