What to Watch: January 6

by Kim Potts, posted Jan 6th 2010 6:00AM
'Nip/Tuck' – It's only appropriate that as Sean and Christian and their 'Nip/Tuck' cohorts prepare to ride off into the sunset -- this is the seventh and final season premiere for the over-the-top drama -- we get a flashback episode that finally explains how the very different Sean and Christian became partners in the first place. As the fellas head back to their alma mater to accept a prestigious award (one which, Sean is unhappy to learn, wasn't so much earned as purchased), Sean takes a trip down memory lane and recalls how a young Christian alienated him from his fellow college students, talked him into pursuing plastic surgery as a career and ultimately cost him admission to Harvard Medical School. Could this be the beginning of the end of not only the series, but of a, not exactly beautiful, but certainly complicated, friendship?
