This show has some of the best and most controversial villains in television. In only four seasons, we've been introduced to a vicious drug lord, a seductive transsexual, a charismatic serial rapist, and a tragic mob boss. I think these characters are essential to the series. Without them the show would be boring.
And personally I think that Jacqueline Bisset definitely deserves an Emmy for her portrayal of James. She's probably the only Nip/Tuck character I actually felt sympathy for.
