    Looks like it's gonna be at least 12, but there might be more that aren't listed yet in the guide.

    I'm guessing 15 or 16 as with seasons 2 & 3.

    It's a bit weird that there isn't a set number per series. I mean, Season 1 had 13 eps, Season 2 16 and Season 3 15. Other series had a definite number of eps per season. How come this doesn't?

    I'm guessing it's because FX is trying to balance how insanely popular it is (given its home on basic cable) with how much it can afford to pay people.

    I'm confident that they have no trouble with ad sales (despite the ongoing attack by the PTC). It probably just goes to just how much they can legitimately charge for advertising.

    Well, I was browsing through the official Nip/Tuck site and it looks as though there are 16 episodes this season.

    In season 2 (this will be a spoiler if you haven't seen it so don't read on if you plan on watching season 2)...

    ...

    ...

    ...

    ...

    ...

    The results of a paternity test Julia took in the finale of season one were finally released and it was revealed that Christian actually is the father of Matt. In season three, (more of an extension than a spoiler...) we find out that Christian actually slept with Julia the night of the cake tasting, as Sean was AWOL because he was on something involving school or business or something. That was Julia and Christian's only sexual encounter, and that once was enough.

    I suggest you watch season two to get the full effect of the revelation. It was moving and truly powerful. But that is the abridged version.

    Okay, so now I'm hearing this season is 15 episodes, so I'm not really sure anymore how many episodes this season is other than either 15 or 16.

    Tell me all that you know about Escobar Gallardo (Robert LaSorda). He is the sexiest man I have ever seen.

    Escobar was the drug dealer whose underlings stole $300,000 from him and used it to pay for plastic surgery. Escobar tried to recoup his loss by having them pro bono a bunch of heroin mules smuggling heroin into the country in their implants.

    Christian slept with Julia before Sean married her and got her pregnant with Matt. Julia told Sean about Matt's real parentage in the S2 episode "Agatha Ripp."

    And welcome to the show!

    I have heard that this season (season 4) is the last please someone tell me it isn't so I have been watching from the very begining and just love the show more and more as each episode is aired. I would be so lost without my favorite show. In fact when a season is over I get a little teary eyed just thinking about how long I have to wait till the next season comes on. So I pray that they will continue to have nip/tuck seasons for a long time

    Apparently there are contracts signed for a fifth season, so ... nope. At least one more.

    I thought the female director (forget her name at the moment) was going to make copies and distribute it. She seemed wayyy too into it while filming, and just before she had been talking to Kimber about how the porn industry is all fetish now (i.e. having sex with a pregnant woman, perhaps?) So that's where I thought it would go. But the internet/YouTube route worked too. Either way, that look Kimber gave Matt? Yikes. Finally - just kick the boy out!

    See, I'd thought Matt had just made a huge error in bringing this crew in. Sure, they did fantastic work, but they probably had a whole bunch of releases they put in front of him and like an idiot he signed all of them and now he's ... profitable.

    His instincts for getting Kimber all hot for him were probably dead on -- if you want to seduce a porn star, get the right direction.

    And it's not like Kimber wasn't having serious doubts about this whole Scientology thing anyway.

    One of Matt's first sexual experiences was with a fluffer, so he had an early brush with the biz.

    Too bad he learned absolutely nothing ...
