  • I cant Wait for the next season on January!

    I cant really say that i am a big fan of nip/tuck but i really like this show it is one of my top five shows of all i like that the show is very dramatic and that it is somthing new on there every episode like the last episode of the season, that ended a few months ago how you did not see what is coming and the characters are all good and evry thing, I think that there needs to be more like mystery to it and have some on should die but not a main person but like kinda a big person to give it some drama.
  • This is one of my favorite shows on, but it really makes me mad that they always seem to be on break and the breaks last so long.

    When this show came out there wasn't anything like it on tv. I was the most graphic by far on network television. Now many shows are following in its footsteps. I love the acting they play the perfect roles. I love the storylines they are complex and make my keep watching. It like many shows goes up and down in hoe interesting it is, but it never loses me as a view. I get together will all my girlfriends and a bottle of wine every week to watch this show, and they love it as much as I do. It is one of the only shows that both my guy friends and my girl friends can watch together.
  • Deep Analisis By Dra. K

    Om Nip/Tuck its an awsome Tv show now lets analize season per season ok?
    Season 01: The first, the beginning i have to say that, beyond every patient story, this season was "standart" like good stories but nothing personal so its a 9.5
    Season 02: Here we have two amazing NEW things that gave the show more power
    -Ava (One of the best antagonist ever!)
    -The Carver (The story begins...)
    This season gets a 10 because, beyong simple patients stories, here we explore the lives of McNamara and Troy in a new way with lies, secrets and betrayals a perfect 10!
    Season 03: Ok this season its good but, for me, we have a pro and a con
    Pro: The Carver story is develop better
    Cons: The nazi-girlfriend thing i dont like it much but ok
    The Carver reaches to make Sean and Christian suffer, we see divorce and a lot of new stuffs that start forming every character future good season... but not good as the first two 8.5
    Season 04: Without Ava and The Carver now the plot is change by an organ harvaster ring that, personally, i like but not too much so, without a strong antagonist the show is still good but its loosing its sense of darkness... good but again not a the level of the first two seasons 8.5
    Season 05-Part 1: Here i think the creators like ruin the show, still good, but they change the dark theme for lights, camera, action... not bad but like the show looses its dark thing (The Carver iven the harvester ring thing... or Ava's incenst get the point?) still good... 8
    Season 05-Part II: This i think is the worst, still good, season why? SImple Chirstian fighting cancer? Liz getting straight? I knew all the way that Christian cancer will not kill him so i knew what is going to happend you know why? Season 04 mistake Know why? In the episode "Connor McNamara, 2026" creators can say what they want that it was just a dream Sean imagine but they cant fool me think in that "dream" Matt change and reachs to be a plastic surgery and, if you check well, on Season 05 Matt start med school and... as Christian is alive in that "dream" (old Christian) it was obvious that he will surpases the cancer so that episode really ruin the MAGIC of the Tv show (in my opinion)

    So, bottom line, the show is still good im gonna see the Sixth, and final, Season but really its not the show it was before Season 01 and 02 the bests all the way

    By the way the song of the intro "A Perfect Lie" (i say it right?) is the best its addictive i cant stop hearing it jaja
  • What was a once humorous and ironic take on plastic surgery, despite and understanding and self-deprecating tone, has gone from being an interesting drama into a a daytime soap. Nip/Tuck is now just another excuse to watch thinly veiled porn.

    Continuing in the vein of ER, Grey's Anatomy, and countless other medical shows, Nip/Tuck began with a focus on the medicine, but has steadily spiraled outwards into a tawdry, sex-obsessed, fantasy driven soap opera. Though seasons two and three produced strong and intriguing plots, difficult characterization, and flowing dialogue, further seasons have steadily decreased in quality. Watching Nip/Tuck is much like the lives of Christian Troy and Sean McNamara: always attempting to reach backward in time to recapture a lost glory. Perhaps the target audience is of an age slightly past their prime, who can more firmly relate to the trials of our two (anti) heroes. For many, however, it seems instead a tawdry romp among the largest possible permutation between characters.
  • Is it just me or is this just droning on?

    Nip Tuck is really one of my favorite shows, and maybe I was let down because of the high hopes I had waiting for S5:P2 to broadcast.. We are now a few episodes in and, well.. its gotten boring. Much like what was it, season 3.. where everything calms down and theres that strange ending which was apparently mcnameras dream. I dunno. Im extremely disapointed with part 2 of this though. Where is Annie? Where is Sean and Julias son? And what on earth happened to Eden?! And please did I really miss something cause where I left off, Kimber wasnot going to let ANYONE see the baby... now shes just randomly showing up at Christians house?? Wheres the porn guy? Im so lost :(
  • An awesome show that keeps you wanting more!

    I mainly got into this show because Julian McMahon was the lead. But as I watched it, it became much more than that. Now I watch it for everyone, not just Julian. (Although he is a big reason) This show is smart, dramatic, funny, and even dark and serious at times. It's a perfect blend of genres that make it such a beautiful show to watch. The characters are great and easy to watch, and not 2-D. They have wonderful depth and personalities, and can make you sypathize with. But all the actors are amazing and have such talent. This show is made of win.
  • A disturbingly perfect drama.

    Take two doctors, one, a family fan with marriage problems, the other, a sex-aholic who strives for perfection. Put them in Miami Florida, a place of drug lord head honchos, serial rapists, rival doctors and the occasional celebrity. Throw in some additional supporting characters, a pornstar, a downtrodden housewife, a detective or two and you've just about got Nip/Tuck.

    A disturbingly perfect drama, the show continues to shock and please simultaneously, outrageous, off the wall and oh so satisfying, such words and phrases come to mind when trying to discuss Nip/Tuck. Sex scenes, knife attacks, regular violence, drug use and then some, Nip/Tuck clearly brings out the worst in TV and every week shows you scenarios you'd never think of seeing on TV.

    Not all out to shock though, Nip/Tuck also handles certain subjects a little more delicately. Cancer death, abortions, parenting and family issues, this is a programme that has it all and shows all, a multi-talented show that almost seems like it can do no wrong, a show that forever gets bigger and better.

    Nip/Tuck is impressive, easily one of my all-time favourite programes, and undoubtedly, the show that comes to mind when using the word drama.

    I got super excited when I saw Nip Tuck available on NetFlix so I started with season 1 and I have been working my way down. I'm on the last episode of season 6 and let me just say the most aggravating part of this show is JOELY RICHARDSONS acting. I know she is covering her accent but come on. The nasal noises before she speaks get old. They come before every line. It's like a stuffed up nose attempt at a sigh and it sounds horrible. She does it so much it's like come on you have to know how aggravating you sound. Also have you watched her in her sex scenes where she is supposed to be turned on. Her heat of passion look like she is going in to a seizure with the convulsing and overly fake heavy breathing. It was horrible to watch. If I was making out with a woman and she acted like that I would call 911. It is over acting at it's best. She was annoying to watch on the show. If it was a make out scene between Joely and someone else I would fast forward. If you want a good example look at the scene in the episode where she had the facial surgery and she had a dream she was married to Christian. When she corners Shawn in the office and seduces him. It literally looks like she is convulsing. I loved this show but watching her made me sick!
  • The video from the show "Yo Stank" sums up this episode quite appropriately...basically, it stunk.

    I haven't missed an episode of Nip Tuck in years, but this week's offering was enough to make me question that dedication. Right off the bat, the opening scenes with "Coco" was so bad that I almost turned it off. Jennifer is a great comedic actress and she did a good job, but whoever wrote that dialogue should be canned. Funny is one thing, but ridiculous? I can do without that.

    The relationship between Christian and Liz is intriguing, but again, his script left me wondering if the real writers had taken a week off. I know that he has an enormous ego and he loves to show it off, but it seems that this week was nothing more than one jab after another about his sexual prowess. Enough already. And his attitude during the cancer survivor's meeting was nothing but deplorable. Yeah...we get it...he's a jerk, but I doubt that even Dr. Troy would have been so cold hearted and unsympathetic in such a situation.

    Then there's Roxy...Come on! Going into the lobby of the office and cutting your own breast off with an electronic carving knife? How disgusting was that scene? Again...I know and understand that she was desperate and wanted to get Christian's attention, but was the gore of it all necessary? Couldn't the result have been manifest without showing the actual act? It was shocking just for the sake of being shocking...IMHO, just an attempt to have people say that the show is staying on the "cutting edge" (no pun intended) by doing things that haven't been done before. It's one thing to be an adult show because of the language and at times a gratuitous butt or boob shot, but to result to blood and gore is taking it to another low level. And lastly, the return of Eden. Again, the writing for this part was horrible! Her lines were pathetic! It's no wonder the actress' delivery was so bad...her lines were crap! I've seen better acting on daytime latino soaps!

    Next week, the show has 5-10 minutes max to prove to me that this week was a fluke. Otherwsie, the channel will be changed promptly. Sad...this show was fun to watch not too long ago. It had just a little dose of reality but didn't go over the top like this episode did.
  • What is wrong with this show? It is absurd, ridiculous, boring, unoriginal, lame...just disappointing. They should just stop producing it. Really. It has nothing of what it used to be in Seasons 1 to 3. A complete embarrassment.

    I am a big Nip/Tuck fan but unfortunately this show is going downhill fast. It is boring, unimaginative, supremely absurd, ridiculously lame. The characters have been reduced to nothing but two dimensional caricatures and their struggles are as meaningful as the story lines. The show has gone from smart and original to plain stupid and tedious. The story has practically zero coherency and there is next to no continuity or self awareness in the characters, except for some vague, skeletal connection they all have to their past (i.e. same name etc). If the characters hadnt kept their names and werent being played by the same actors, I wouldnt know that this is the same show I watched years ago. It's just pathetic. Christian's character has not grown as the writers would like us believe, he has merely turned into a pathetic, whiny little sap without any plausible explanation in the plot as to why. It seems like the writers just ran out of things to do with Christian, and so decided to have him be a complete embarrassment. He doesn't have an ounce of the zest and eagerness he had before and we don't even know why. Sean is not even remotely the same person he used to be. And it's not that he grew or changed, it is as if they had just made up a new character. Julia has completely disappeared after having turned lesbian (out of the blue). The writers are so pathetic and have ran out of stories so they have Christian have sex with Liz (a stern lesbian who would NEVER have sold out to Christian's advances). And what's up with the biker chick who is supposed to be daring? She is not only miscasted but her character, just like any character, is just not very believable. This show used to be daring, spellbinding, intriguing, intelligent and edgy. Now it is just an embarrassment and I really hope they stop producing it.
  • Dramatic and shocking is an understatement

    If you've seen Nip/Tuck you don't need me to tell you it's worth watching just for what happens. It also offers great acting and people you love to hate or just love period. No matter how shocking it gets, it is believable thanks to the great characters. Two plastic surgeons struggle with their lives and others while they operate on the usually demented or physically troubled, but always very interesting people. Very entertaining show, but nearing it's end. Watch it while you can because if you wait any longer it's going to be an expensive DVD box set to pay for.
  • Graphic. Dark. But a pretty good show

    Deserves a high score because it's better than MANY of today's popular shows, just because character and plot development have been relatively engaging and consistent. I remember watching the first ever episode maybe 3/4 times before actually finishing it, and when I did, I watched another. And another.

    The introduction of Ava is definitely what gets you hooked initially. Famke Janssen played an amazing villain. Acting is good. Both doctors are believable and Matt is played very well. Vanessa Redgrave as Erica also deserves an award. The biggest problem I had when I started watching this show was Julia. In the first season her scenes were painful to watch, especially when she had them emotional outbursts. She Has improved, but she's still arguably the worst actor of the lot. It's hard to care for her character at all. Even when she got shot, I was more interested in Eden.

    The period where they developed The Carver arc were especially entertaining. The organ harvesting storyline was pretty good, but fell in the shadow of The Carver. And after that, the show didn't do much for me. Moving to California took a part of the show away to be honest. Without a gripping plot, it's become yet another TV show about doctors and their messed up lives. It's good that they've decided to quit while ahead, unlike many other shows.

    Still, job well done overall
  • It started as an awsome show but to be honest after the carver season Nip/Tuck has its moments its not so addicting anymore. They need to fix it.

    Ok, needs to be awsome again, more addicting like it used to be. They need a new plot something interesting that draws attention like the carver ( it gave me goose bums). Nip tuck its a good show but it has bacome one of those shows that I do not need to watch every day. It has become one of the shows that I watch because there is nothing else on. Bottom line is that is needs some fine tunning, so every week I can say that I cannot wait 'till next week to watch it. It needs to be more addicting.
  • It's a well made show, but I can't stand the intro.

    I started watching this show only because it was available on Netflix and I gotta say, it's so not what I expected it to be, I thought it was a reality show or something like that. Once I started watching I quickly realized that I can't relate to any of the characters in the show at all, but little by little I was hooked. It's been interesting so far and it's so easy to get hooked on show now that your able to just hit next on netflix. Anyway great show, would recommend it, but it's not for everyone. The only thing that bugs me is the intro, not a big fan of it, and specially because your able to go from episode to episode so quickly, it gets old really fast. Maybe netflix will add chapters eventually.
  • this show is much more brilliant that what every body thinks

    i know that season 1 and 2 are the best season on this show, but seasons 3, 4, and 5 are as good as them. the best thing about Nip/Tuck is the character development, that avery episode progress a little more, if you come to think on what they started being and to what they ended up doing, it´s not ridicules and unbelieveble as it seems to be, all the personalities are driven through a same constant line that although they change they remain the same escence.
    all characters thet play the guest stars are brilliantly chosen, and their acting is excelent.
    dont stop whatching this show i highly recomend it.
  • Why I am addicted to this show...

    Pure brilliance in television viewing! This show has is all! Sex, controversy, suspense, love, hate, relationships, fear, violence, drama, blood, gore, heartfelt, compassion, selfishness.

    Always pushing the envelop and keeping you guessing -- take nothing you see at face value, every turn is a major twist -- er, twisted (yes at times).

    Creator Ryan Murphy is an exquisitely gifted story teller!

  • How could did they get an idea for this show?

    I loved this show. I loved Christian Troy and Sean McNamara in this show, they are just so cute and handsome, but Julian McMahon, much more than them, I can't believe that they get to the idea of a series like this, it looks like in ten years from now they won't have any ideas and all what is going to be left will be remakes of great series like this one, I can't believe it. Thanks very much to the creators of this series for all this great ideas, and most of all thanks to the writers and actors.
  • Great watchable show

    This show is definitely watchable. It is funny, amusing, dramatic, and sometimes scary. People love this show and become addicted just like me or hate it from the first minute.

    The storyline and plot is well written also the characters are well developed. With the talented actors and actresses also the acting is great in the show.

    For me all the seasons are good but my favorite seasons are 1,2 and 3. And my favorite actor is Julian of course. He is great in the show both acting and outer look. I can't wait for new season and more action and more patients.
  • "Exotic Fun"

    First off I'm going to say that Sean and Christian are both hot and when they show their asses it's nice to see. Anyway the show is pure fun not meant to be taken serious at all the first episode I watched was on September 5, 2006 the episode called Cindy Plumb. After that I was hooked and can't wait until season 6 starts. The funniest episodes were the one called Allegra Calderello where this dude has sex with furniture and also the episode called Lulu Grandiron where the woman wants to look like a cat both were really funny and there are moments in the show where it's funny and I like that so Peace Out
  • I hoped that this season would be better than last with Christian and Sean taking CA by storm. I was glad that they left everyone behind in Miami.

    This season't finale was just plain repetitive. I actually WANT, NEED, HOPE and DESIRE Julia to be gone from the show. Kill off the character already. It would be fitting as she already assasinated (figuratively) everyone else in the show. I could never stand her - she is the main problem with the interaction between Sean and Christian as she plays them both against each other. She and Sean were on the way to divorce and then she found out the baby would be born with a disability. She didn't want to raise it alone - that's the only reason why she made up with Sean.

    Eden is another sorry sack of pookie. In the real world, "little Eden" wouldn't have that much time on her hands and she definitely wouldn't have the unlimited opportunity to interfere with her mother's relationship. Get rid of her!

    The highlight, for me anyway, was Christian's overwhelming jealousy of Sean's popularity to the point where he posed nude and wound up getting the wrong groupies. The constant stream of gay men wanting him was truly hilarious.

    The Rosie O'Donnell/Oliver Platt story line was really funny - a total flip flop of real life positions. That's what you call acting!

    Season 6 will be the last. I hope my beloved show goes out with a blast instead of an anti-climatic or mediocre ending.
  • The show is so scattered!!

    It seems that the writer's don't have direction. One week they feature Sean with a girlfriend and then all of a sudden she's gone until a few episodes later. It's not explained very well. When I first started watching it was great and now I just don't look forward to watching. Julia's character is boring. The show keeps going off in many directions without a solid base. And now they have Julia with amnesia? Does that mean she'll meander along, not remembering anything and again, be boring? I thought they were going to kill her off because it seems she wants off the show.
  • I have watched every episode of Nip Tuck since its birth and I have eagerly awaited/loved each new episode. I locked the new premiere on my Tivo weeks ago. Now, I'm shaking my head in disbelief, the lame comedy aspect didn't work and the show was dull.

    Last year's Nip Tuck was awesome and I eagerly awaited (and loved) each and every new shocking/exciting episode. So naturally I just assumed that the season premiere would be equally as clutching. BOY WAS I WRONG! The premiere was dull, dry and the attempts at comedy were embarrassing to say the least. Did the show get new writers or something? I don't know what happened but I enjoy the drama of the original Nip Tuck much more. I kept looking at the clock throughout the whole premiere calculating how many more minutes were left hoping that there was some surprise embedded in the story line that would possibly rescue a very disappointing performance. Come on guys...I know you can do better!!
  • At first I thought the show was too sexual, but after watching the show on a regular basis, it all fit together. I love the show, it grew on me fast.

    Excellent cast, love Shaun, Kimber, Christian, great actors,
    they are alot better than I expected when I started watching the show.That British detective during the Carver thing annoyed the crap out of me. When she became a Carver victim, God forgive me, but I was like HA HA!!!!!!!
    I also think the Carver might be Merrill, he makes a great looneytoon,4cans short of a 6 pack if you ask me. Christian also fits ALOT better on Nip/Tuck than charmed, don't like charmed. Also Matt needs to relax, you're pissed & betrayed, we get it. Basically, great show, cast, premise, & very original.
  • Hi everybody, my name is Veronica and i am completely addicted to this fantastic show Nip/Tuck. So for anyone who loves Nip/Tuck as much as myself, feel free to read my review below.

    Ok let's start the review shall we. As you all know, I'm Veronica and i am Nip/Tucks Number 1. fan. I began watching the show two years ago when it aired on channel 9 and i tuned in for Julian McMahon. I instantly fell in love with the shows brilliance, boldness, and characters. I became a fanatic and watched every week. Some months ago i purchased the Season 1 DVDs and Season 2 DVDs and i watch them daily. In short the characters are so relatable, the show is addictive and leaves your heart stopping and wanting more every episode.
  • Just Excellent!

    The best drama I've seen... It keeps me glued to my seat. I've seen many dramas but not one as interesting as this. The ups and downs of 2 plastic surgeons... Woh! It's a real hit. In my humble opinion, this show deserves a perfect 10 on my list. Just Excellent!

  • A little too strong, but is great!

    Nip/Tuck is one of the most original series ever! From its beginnings it has attract a lot of viewers into the strange plotlines of this show, and that is because this show is just fantastic! Every season, almost, there is a certain plot that moves all the characters toward a major conflict, that are usually resolve or cause because of a surgery perform by doctors Sean McNamara and Christian Troy which have their unique way of being but are best friends and usually perform any type of surgery to anyone that pays them, to whatever they want. I think that why this show has attracted so much viewers and fans is because of its provocative way of touching certain themes that are often forbidden on most shows (like transexuals, lesbians, and that kind of things) Nip/Tuck is a disturbingly, perfect drama, and someday it will become a television's classic, I am sure of it!
  • Amazing characters, Smart storylines, Sexy, Fun, Sad, and above all else Real.

    Nip/Tuck has been on for quite sometime now. I like many people fell in love with the characters at once. Most of all Dylan Walsh and Julian MacMahon as Dr. Sean MacNamara and Dr Christian Troy, both men giving excellent performances. I had not heard a lot about either actor before the show began but I instantly recognized their talents and could never imagine anyone else in the rolls. The relationship between these two characters is amazingly well written and the fact that every other character whether it be Matt, Julia, Kimber, Meryl or just a guest star brings out something new in everyone just proves that this series deserves to be on air. The writing is magnificent and the charisma between the actors is noticeably better than many shows on Prime Time Network TV. This show deserves so much more notice than it receives and I know many people will agree with me when I say; Nip/Tuck is one of the best shows not only because of its stories but because of the people and the problems they face. While some storylines may be a little far fetched and melodramatic the emotions that they bring out of each character are true to life. Bravo Nip/Tuck and I hope for many more seasons.
  • A Bizarre Mosaic with an abundance of sex, modern issues, brotherhood, scandal, and violence

    Nip/Tuck isn't for everyone let me start by saying that I watched them all before Season 5 aired and I grew to think of it as my show but even though it certainly had its ups and downs in the end especially and may have devolved from the guilty pleasure/disturbing drama that seeped through the seemingly perfect practice of McNamara/Troy and the brotherhood of Sean and Christian and yet my reason for a high rating is a throwback to its glory days when Nip/Tuck was serious hot s*&t and everyone was talking about it. Perhaps it ran for too long but it certainly had it's moments and served an example of how far a cable network that isn't called HBO and Showtime can go. It certainly had an interesting dynamic and quite a few intriguing surgeries and sexy encounters Nip/Tuck will hopefully be a trademark of shallow troubled surgeons the likes of which Television will never see again.
  • The time had come to sew the final stitches...

    When I first started watching Nip/Tuck, it was like no other show on television. It was definitely one of the first shows to get as risque on television. Not very many shows are able to show strong language, violent situations, and nudity, but those words at the beginning of every episode didn't attract me. It was the characters.

    Watching Sean McNamara and Christian Troy go through several different transitions over the last few years definitely was enjoyable. It always amazed me how the two stuck together for so many years. Sean with his ethical principals that sometimes had to be broken, and the sex-addict Christian that constantly put Sean down and prevented him from doing what he wanted. I mean, how did these two keep from killing each other? Christian slept with Julia, was Matt's father, Sean slept with Kimber, Christian spread the business around in the wrong ways, da da, da da, da da. I mean, so many things have happened between those two, and yet they were able to stick it out for all these years.

    I felt the show was a great success overall. While it did lag in the last chapter, I still felt it had some closure. I know many were disappointed with the results of the episode, and no major twists or turns. But that's how I wanted it. Many shows that end with a surprise just end really dumb. But the fact that this one ended just simply was alright with me. I think they'll be better off in the future, and we can only imagine what Sean, Christian, Liz, Julia, and Matt will be doing without each other around. It was a great show while it lasted, and I will own all of the seasons on DVD. Nip/Tuck sewed all of its seeds, and it was time to be set free.
