    Very odd return. Why is Teddy a new actress? What happened to the other one? Mario Lopez? Kind of cool the economy played a roll in the the office's plight. Liz suing Christian was very un-like her. The season preview looked wierd too.

    I figure as long as no babies were being injcted, no furniture was being romanced, and no breasts were being sliced off, we're in good sorts so far. That is, until Mario Lopez starts wearing lingerie...

    I thought thi episode was boring until the very last minute... But injured or near death Sean is getting a little old...
    Not good for a season premiere...

    That was the one thing I hated about the episode, and that's teasing Sean's dying AGAIN. This is 2 times in two seasons already, and I believe the 4th time him dying has been teased.

    Well I have to agree that this was not that great of an episode. Replacing Katee Sackhoff with Rose McGowan as Teddy was a horrible move. But Katee is becoming quite the star so she probably would have commanded more money than Rose. Everything just seemed really slow and not as exciting as seasons past. And the whole ending with Sean. I believe he is not dead, but is overdosing on sleeping pills. Now is this on purpose because of the financial troubles he is currently facing or is it accidental because he just really wanted to get some sleep. And finally, the return of Mario Lopez just didn't seem at all interesting and their whole infomercial was just horrible and stupid. Not impressed at all with the episode!

    This episode wasn't that interesting. I really doubt that Sean is dead from sleeping pills overdose and Rose playing Teddy just doesn't work for me. She doesn't fit the character.

    I can't believe Murph believes the mere mention of vaginal rejuvenation is going to get us all up in a season premiere-worthy tizz. I enjoyed the preview scenes from upcoming episodes more than I enjoyed this one. That being said, it was quietly acceptable, which is by definition entirely unacceptable for a cutting-edge drama like "Nip/Tuck."

    I loved the infomercial! Hysterical! Christian & his ladies, & Sean & Teddy's outrageous shopping sprees, the whole Dr. Mike's yacht with the music by Mims, eye candy. And Matt as a mime? And a coffee shop robbing mime? That is the cherry on top of the sundae. Bring this season on!

    I wont start a new thread for ep. 3, just have to say, this Teddy story goes too far. She wants to kill now Sean's whole family? She can have Matt, but the other two kids? I hope she dies in a really brutal way.

    This show is burned out. Maybe if not only Ava, but the Carver too would come back, this show could end well.

    I'm sorry but how is that Katee Sackoff becoming a star? I haven't seen her in anything since last season on this show & she wasn't even that good as Teddy. I mean come on, how hard is it to play a psycho slut? Not very. She wasn't even very attractive. It was weird that they replaced her but Rose McGowan's a good actress & I'd prefer to watch her any day over that Katee chick.
