  • Do not let you kids or teenagers watch this.

    I think I am the only one on this message board that says this, but I speak for those people when I say that Nip/Tuck is not a good family show. That is saying a lot.

    The Parents Television Council says this too! And, they are right, too! I like what the PTC does for the world. Don't you dare flame because 1) I don't like it when people bash my morals and 2) The PTC may go after you. Who were the guys who created this, secular progressives? I know you all have your own opinions and all, but, this show, it's about a bunch of horny loser Satan-worshipers. I am outraged by today's immoral society.

    Also, the show uses harsh words I can't repeat. The show has too much sexual content, the medical surgeries are too graphic, and is overall too explicit for anyone.

    Therefore, I hope the show get kicked to the curb one day and the vulgar society of todays matures a bit more. It is not appropriate for the whole family to enjoy. It's sick how many of these people "enjoy" these shows.
  • I really don't see the point of this.

    Um what is this? What is it about? Why does it stink like cow poo? Answers are: a piece of crap; absolutely nothing; because it's LAME!! Ironic that people actually enjoy this show. If you love this show, that's fine with me, but don't try to convince me to like it, because i won't.
  • Worst ever & waste of time!!!

    Forget this episode. Such a waste of time. Complety off topic and such a low point for this. If this was the first episode you ever watched it will be the last ever. How can somebody line-up such a mess with the others. I just hope and I really hope that the next episode will be much better to repair the damage this episode did to nip/tuck. Forget this episode.

  • They are all losers, i would never like to live like this.

    ok, first of all, i know my english is no good, but try to look past that.

    Second of all, in the beginning of the show, i actually thought the show was ok. but now its just pathetic. I dont like the characters at all, especially \"Sean\", and when Julia says \"Sean\", i dont know what to do, it sounds disgusting. Its just getting worse, Matt is/are? according to me such a loser, and the rest to btb. I cant stand looking at \"Sean\" anymore,he´s probably the biggest loser of all.

    Now, u may wonder way i countinued watching this stupid show for so long. I have no good answer to that, because there is non, but to my defense i can say i love watching shows with doctors, medicin and pretty faces in them, allthough i have a hard time finding one in nip/tuck except the obvious one.

    Well, to sum up; Nip/tuck sucks, the characters are losers and im done watching it. Over and out./I

    ps. Ok, my expressed opinion may of upset some people, but only because i dont like the show doesnt mean i dont know that everything is not perfect in this world. And no, i will not go back to 7th heaven,.. why should i? That show is pretty pathetic to.
  • what the hell

    I saw an episode of this show...just screaming, shouting, and swearing. Someone got slapped and they were talking about some really gross stuff..
    I wasn't very impressed at all, it seemed to be really low stuff. Maybe i've just missed the point, but another b-grade drama is what i saw.
  • Pointless.

    Disgusting and pointless, Nip/Tuck, must be made for moronic urbanites with the classic 'cattle' mentality. It completely lacks an interesting plot, compelling characters, and promotes total immorality. As a witch from the 'bible belt' this is really saying something as my views on 'morality' are both quite modern and pre-christian at the same time. Overall, this show glamorizes some of the worst parts of our current society's views on life, our bodies, and our inherent obsessive behaviors. Give me a break and put something I can watch with my family on. If it has to be alternative stuff to bring in viewers, so much the better, because we like that. This show is even worse than reality tv.
  • Interesting yet quite a "sick" show

    Now, if you want to be sickened every time you watch this series, be my guest.You never know what the two main characters will be up to, let alone how the story will go but one thing is for sure.It will probably be as low grade as their characters are. By that I mean that the depiction of these two self-effacing "doctors' or "butchers" who have no proclivity nor morals to sustain them are in a constant and complex involvement with their seemingly demented profession.
    The women on this show are no better than the main characters since they seem to lack anything that makes them above what the men seem to be.They are weak and self-deprecating, confused and artificial.
  • It was original, but went down.

    I have watched Nip Tuck since day one, the last 2 episodes have me somewhat confused and disappointed! The last scenes on 10/12/05 was Christian being put under anesthesia and Sean cutting himself, as usual, great cliff hangers for viewers to tune in next week. However, when next week came, we never saw the outcome of either!! I felt like they forgot a episode!! The episode on 10/19 was mind boggleing to say the least!!! I waited for 60 minutes to see Christian wake up and it was all a dream!!! The last scene on this one was Kit sitting in front of Christian ...showing us she had been the last victim of the Carver! NOw, this week, again...NOthing about last weeks episode!!! Where is Kit? Where is Kimber? Where is Matt? And when and how did Gina get back in the picture? Is it me?? I love this show, I live for this show....but suddenly I am getting worried there are new writers and could possibly hurt the shows ratings .
  • Season Finale was the worst.

    This was one of the worst season finales I have ever seen..the entire season was aweful..the show had no direction and concentrated too much on personal stopped focusing on the plastic surgeons and took a turn who knows where. I am a big fan I own season 1-3 on DVD) will for sure not purchase this one..and may sop watching if they return for another season.
  • Complete and total crap

    One of the worst shows ever!!! The commercials make me want to avoid it at all costs, not intruigue me into watching it.

    I caught 10 minutes one day when there was nothing else on, so I thought I would see what it was all about, and it was disgusting! This blond slut had hired 3 guys to have sex with her, one right after the other, to get pregnant?

    Im amazed it made it past half way through season 1. I would rather watch something a little more intelligent and less self-important, self involved hacks.

    I don't care if people disagree with my review, I just dont like these fluff shows full of sluts and sex.
  • ...and I am not talking about the plot, cast of characters, or the technicolour. The SOUND is not right this season! The voices are garbled & when I try to adjust with fine tuning, it just gets more obvious....

    Please, fix this, Sound Tech, so we can continue to enjoy this fascinating series. I was hooked the very first season of Nip/Tuck - and it continues to supersede all of my expectations, EXCEPT for the sound quality which, I repeat.....because this review must be so many words long, which makes the speeches garbled and, sometimes, incomprehensible. Thanks for listening,
  • The 4 first seasons where very good and quite intersting but the last seasons have been extremely disapointing. It's like what happend in prison break, the writers went out of ideas and streched the sow because it sold, but the result is horrible!!!

    The 4 first seasons where very good and quite intersting but the last seasons have been extremely disapointing. It's like what happend in prison break, the writers went out of ideas and streched the sow because it sold, but the result is horrible!!! i was a nip tuck fan but i can't watch it anymore. With all these things that happend i find it pretty apawling and i will not watch it again. Every kinky-twited-pervert-weerdo character you might think this sow has them!!! Also everyone have slept with everyone. It's such a shame what started to be a great show that is now painfully to watch
  • Sex and plastic surgery.

    I gave Nip/Tuck a chance because I have been hearin so much press that it is "groundbreaking" and "amazing." I found it to be a little ridiculous. Trash is a little too nice of a word for this show. I don't understand the great appeal of a show based upon sex and surgery. Maybe I am just too squeamish. Or, maybe my standards are too high. Who knows?

    The only appealing part of the show, in my opinion, was the different people who wanted the surgery. Their backstories were remotely interesting, but not interesting enough to keep this lady watching. Nip/ thanks.
  • Sick...Why the hell do they cut other peoples faces off.

    This is one weird show i mean it. All it is about is: These guys who cut peoples faces off then stick some other shit on them for money, and then these guys need to have sex with everything. it is one mest up show.
    And who thessasas qasas
    sjdnd jsn
  • An exciting drama that could come close to the genre of thriller.

    This was possibly the first show I fell in love with. It has everything, sex, violence, jealousy, romance, drugs, etc. All of those qualities combined with two highly skilled plastic surgeons and their exploits coming into one program was bound to make a splash. This show is absolutely fantastic. Its definitely not meant for those below the age of 18 but mature audiences will find it to quickly become one of their favorites after just a taste. With many famous stars such as Joan Rivers, and Rosie O'Donnell (not two of my favorites) making cameo's it attracts other members of the audience who are fans of the stars.
  • Season premiere. Sean and Christian move to California from Miami.They are running out of money and have no patients. They hit the hollywood scene to try and drum up business.

    I was looking forward to the season premiere,what a disappointment! The show was actually annoying. Especially that woman with the lips. I just wanted her to stop whining.The show had no flow to it and it was like the writers were desperate for a storyline. If that's what you could have called it.If the show was supposed to be funny,I failed to see any humor in it. I hope next week is at least tolerable or I just might go back to watching a great show like Boston Legal! What has happened to the great show that it used to be?????
  • A show that used to be great is not just grim.

    When Nip/Tuck first premiered, I was impressed and happy for Julian McMahon, because he's such a great actor, and the show was so unique. But 6 years later, this show is just "pathetic", as Christian would say. This thing with Kimber is old, old, old, old, Just like Lana Lang being on Smallville, you want to say "Move on, already!!!!" These characters haven't advanced or matured at all in the past few years. I'm sad this is how Nip/Tuck will end, without any fireworks. The writers are desperately searching for plots and it's not working. This is a good example of how sometimes it's best to quit while you're ahead. Season four should have been the last season. R.I.P. Nip/Tuck.
  • Before you start watching make sure you don't get addicted easily. Because this will keep you watching and you will soon be regretting you ever tuned in on this.

    I have been watching this show from the very beginning. I loved everything about it. The characters intrigued me, the surgeries shocked me, the personal stuff touched me. Basically one could say, that I fell in Love with the series. And one would be right.

    But then the second season came. There was some sexual insecurity and then there was some sexual surgery and then there was some sex. period. This whole series turned and I can't tell when that was.
    Perhaps it changed when Max fell in Love. Or when he found out, that he had been with someone not above molesting their child. Or perhaps when he found out, taht he had been sleeping with a man.
    Perhaps it was when the carver started to rape every beautiful person in town, or when rape suddenly became a sexual thing not about violence and dominance. Or perhaps it was in season 3 when the investigating officer visits a crime scene and talks about the maid being anal in the room. Or perhaps it was when Christian had a girlfriend who had a girlfriend.

    Either way this series has deteriorated. It became sort of a softporno with little to no storyline. The little storyline it has left is only used to make spectacularly complicated and fascinatingly useless turns so that the writers can put even more sex in the package.

    But somehow I just can't stop watching. I will tune in in the fourth season. And I will probably shake my head the entire time in disbelief. How can it get any worse? Is this rock bottom? No they get even more superficial. I get it, it's a show about plastic surgeons. Naturally there are only pretty girls and handsome men in the show. Naturally they all have a lot of sex. But is this all they have? Do we really live in a society where your girlfriend has a girlfriend or you never had good sex (as Christian implies)? Do we have to see all that sex to get the picture, that a plastic surgeon has a lot of that? Or is this just an excuse to send softporn earlier in the evening?

    So no people. Don't start watching unless you definetely know you will be able to stop when things get worse by the minute.
  • Nip/Tuck is absolutely, positively, no doubt in my mind amazing.

    I just started watching the show yesterday and I'm already hooked. I'm on like the fifth episode (buying them off iTunes) and I must say that there is no show quite like this show. Who could have though that a show about two plastic surgeons could be interesting? I sure didn't. Well, I have been officially proved wrong. I can't wait to get to the second season, which I've heard is much better than first because of the whole Carver thing going on. Anyway, I can't wait to watch more. This show is absolutely addicting with stories that are unlike any I have ever seen before. You rule Nip/Tuck!
  • What a ridiculous, preposterously overwrought piece of flab! But it sure is capitivating.

    First of all, let me begin by praising the inventive grammar of whoever wrote the summar for Nip/Tuck on this site. This person seems to have an issue with pronouns and verb agreement. Just take that under advisement, dear writer, if you ever read this. (Guilty as charged--at 31, with plenty of education, a professional songwriter, I still make huge mistakes with commas.)

    On to the show. "My god!" I thought. "What happened to that chick?" The Carver had just struck and the silly, over-the-top detective lady was questioning a slash-faced cutie. The image was arresting, unnerving and at the same time, titillating. So I stopped and watched for a while. Okay, it got incredibly sordid in a hurry. Holy $hit! What do people get out of this stuff?! Best I could figure, there was this person raping girls with a strap-on and slashing their faces. On top of it all, it seems this incident had happened at a sorority party?! (Sorry I can't stop using exclamations, but for chrissakes! This crap is so ridiculously megalo, it's jaw-dropping.)

    Then the police enter the abode of another victim--a guy tied up in bed, slashed, with "I can't stop" scrawled on the wall in blood!!! I wish you could hear me laughing. This $hit is just hilarious. And then it turns out he has no penis! Can this get more overblown? The guy goes through an ordeal of convincing these chilly, shady cosmetic surgeons to work on him, and just when they start the operation, the freakin' SWAT team or the Marines or something bust in, with unbelievably hot caricature detective lady leading the charge. Oh my god!! Hilarious. And they're there to arrest the nurse who's just administered anaesthetic!! Okay--so how's this gonna work out? Did they bring in someone to fill in for her for the rest of the operation? And then it turns out she's the one with the strap-on!Ha ha ha ha ha!!!! Oh, jeez--this is too much. I've never done one of these forums before, and I guess I'm a "Spoiler". Wooo...hoooo hoooooo... Oh, man. God, that was rich. I have too much time on my hands.

    Okay, the only thing that could make this show even more fun to watch would be:
    A) Aliens
    B) special guest appearances by Peter Falk
    C) special guest appearances by Jack Klugman (Quincy)
    D) An episode featuring characters from "Days of Our Lives"
    Make a choice. It's a new survey.

    Wow! This was a truly commendable piece of overwrought, fabulistically-written, imaginative and ultimately stupid tripe. I'll come back for more sometime. Yeah--it's that bad.
  • What happened to this show?

    There was a time when I was interested in this show, but they left the carver story for a number of episodes until the finale. In between the carver hiatus and his return, there were a bunch of TERRIBLE episodes. It was almost like they wanted season one to be about the carver, ran out of ideas for new episodes, and decided to make a bunch of filler until they revealed the carver.
  • If my friend didnt keep talking about it I wouldnt have bothered.

    I'm not sure what I was thinking by actually watching the second show. The premiere was not what I expected but it was a little sentimental with the lady on the couch. I guess they were going for that effect. The threesome wasnt the worst thing, I think when shows have a lot of so called mature activities they have to keep going to more distressing subjects. The second show last night to me was distressing. I am so tired of people harping on the idea that we have a choice to be male or female. In 99percent of the population you are born one or another. You do not choose. Our society is full of people pushing that agenda and I don't need to see it in my so called entertainment hours. Enough said.
  • The last episode was the worst thought out one ever! Very disappointing.

    There were so many things that were poorly thought out. I spent all week anticipating this show and was disappointed. Even though I had guessed the carver right. For instance, Quinton gets shot by a cop, but no one checks a pulse to see if he is actually dead. Then, when christian and sean find out that Kit is his sister and not dead, they go home and have dinner. What?!!! Try going to the police to tell them and see if quinton is still in the morgue! Julia finds out something bad about her baby, and decides she now wants to live with sean but not tell him the news. Matt has a horrible ordeal and kills a man and goes home to have dinner with his family like he is this great son now who has done nothing wrong. Try calling the police or telling your family what happpened. I just think It was a very poorly planned episode and disappointing. This is one of my favorite shows and the ending was so unrealistic. Better luck next time.
  • Christian Troy and Sean McNamara move to L.A. to begin another practice. Loyal Liz joins them. Julia visits to reveal that she has turned lesbian. Sean is offered a role in a television Drama about plastic surgery. Christian is jealous.

    This show is going downhill fast. If the next few episodes do not improve, I will find myself watching something else at 10pm on a Tuesday night. I was turned onto the show by a friend who lent me the DVD's so I could catch up for this season. Season one grabbed the viewer's attention. There was no way any person watching could not tune in the following weeks. It was raunchy, detailed, explicit and intriguing. When I told my friend I was going to have to order HBO to watch season five, she clued me in that it was FX. I argued how could it possibly be on FX when they show private parts during sex scenes and operations, and use such vulgar language. The directors and writers were so clever that it lead me to see and hear things that weren't there. Brilliant!
    The final episode left me craving for the next season to begin. The next two seasons were delightfully more of the same. And although season four was more demented, it still had me antisipating season five. Season five is utter disappointment.
    I found it ironic that Sean's purpose for being on the show was to make it more believable. It was exactly what the actual Nip/Tuck show needed. The acting was poor, the storyline predictable. In a nutshell, so far I am left thinking they should have bowed out gracefully at season four.
  • In watching the last episode Julie says her mother is watching the kids and Sean also asks how her mother is doing. This is strange b/c I thought Julie's mother died as a result of a plane crash last season.

    I do not think this show is as good as in the past. Last season I was really getting tired of the "weirdness" and lo and behold you come on this season and Julie has a female lover. Come on, last year midgets this year females. I am not so sure I will continue to watch this show. Now I can even write a review unless it is 100 words long. The networks need to start realizing that their fans need more than trying to make sure all groups are represented on the shows. What happened to being real????? Again as stated in my summary did Julie's mother die last season or not????
  • I loved season 1 and 2! Love the crazy characters.

    I just started watching Nip/Tuck. Season 1 and 2 were amazing, the other seasons they could have done better on, but because of the fact that season 1 and 2 were so good it kept me hooked. I cant get enough of the characters. The crazy ones are my favorite, it always makes me laugh. And Im hoping they well do another amazing season. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah
  • Restoration of the carvers voice!

    Hi guys!
    Bit of a spoiler to say the least - unfortunately I am the impatient type and needed to know who the carver was... I used an advanced pitch shift software (by waves) on the carvers voice recordings and indentified whose voice it is! If you transpose it up 4 semitones, retaining formants then you can hear without any shadow of a doubt it is John Hensley - the carver is Matt!!!
    It still sounds digital but its there as clear as day.

    Disappointing as i really hoped it was Julia... and kinda suspected it was Liz. If i could upload sound here i would upload the mp3 of the restored carver vocal, but im sure most of you can do it yourself...
  • Season Finale Disappointment

    The season finale was completely predictable, and very disappointing! In fact, it totally ruined the whole show for me and my husband and I don't think we are interested in watching it anymore. I certainly hope Season 4 kicks off in a "killer" way or I'm afraid I will be finding something else to occupy my time on Tuesdays.
  • What in God's name happened to the third season of what used to be my favorite show?

    I've been a faithful viewer of this show since the pilot and even encouraged all of my friends to watch it because it was very smart, funny, and cutting-edge. But the third season was the slowest and most poorly written to date. I was completely surprised that the writers went with Quentin as being the Carver. He was the most obvious choice so I was completely thrown that a show that used to be one of the best written on TV would take the easy way out. The finale made absolutely no sense at all. If this season is any indication of what's to come later...I won't be watching anymore!
  • I have tried to watch this show a few times, but the minute I start actually liking it, it turns into a sexual joke. Nothing hot about the sex, just plain laughable.

    I liked most of the premier, but when it got to the detective pulling up her skirt to reveal her stockings, I started laughing and did not stop after Kimmy hopped into bed with them! I have no problem with people being sexual, but this had to be written by a 15 year old boy hooked on Penhouse Forum. Come on! I guess it is every man's dream to have two beautiful women in designer undies going at it and then including him, but how stupid can it get? Consulting to see if it okay with both ladies? Nope. Ripping clothes off and two chicks mashing? Yep, written by a male who wants blow-up dolls and not real women.

    Have fight with partner? Hire hooker and have menage toi. Like one girl who likes another girl? Have menage toi. Find out you don't have Aids? Have menage toi. Trying to recover from being sexually assaulted? Have menage toi.

    Not a prude, but this show is one that I will be passing on unless it can actually tell a story without having to revert to it's old stand-by, the menage toi. They have actually been able to make it an overused devise that is a yawn, if not downright funny. I know it is supposed to have some humor to the show, but I think I am laughing when they are expecting me to be breathing heavily. Gee, thinking about it has started me giggling again...........
