Any Thoughts on Last Night's 'Nip/Tuck' Series Finale?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 4th 2010 1:29PM
Nip/Tuck'Nip/Tuck' is a drama that started with a bang but ended with a whimper. It still had its fans but only the most die-hard. People I know who watched it the first few seasons say they got away from it when it started to get crazier and crazier. We used to review it here but when Jonathan left a few weeks ago, we realized that none of the other Squadders watch it, so we dropped it.

But did you watch the series finale (the show's 100th episode) last night? Three words: Japanese senior porn.

I just watched all seasons on Netflix over the past few weeks and was extremely disappointed with the finale. There was absolutely no growth or resolution for any of the characters. Matt was only interesting to watch due to his reactions to things that happened to him. And at the end he GIVES his daughter to a crazed women who would never love him properly just because she craved perfection? Sean always needed someone to show him how to live his life and at the end when Christian finally lets him go, he latches on to a child who will need him while he's off playing doctor to disadvantaged children. Julia was just as confused at the end as she was in the beginning. She still didn't know what she wanted or who she was. After 6 years, one would think she would have grown a little bit. Sadly, she just found someone else to latch onto and wanted to see if living in another country would be the answer to everything. Christian became extremely unlikable in the last two seasons. There was nothing good about him anymore. He was beginning to lose his vanity but still felt that he deserved the best in everything for no reason. He knew he was a terrible person and yet did nothing to change and didn't seem to care. The kids seemed to be an afterthought and were rarely mentioned in the final season, only except when they were involved in more drama that made Sean do something stupid. Kimber seemed to regress. She had made her mark, she had stabilized herself and began getting more independent. She gets back with Christian and then realizes that she has nothing to live for? What about the daughter she claimed to love so much? Julia seemed to remember her entire life except for the fact that Eden shot her? In the beginning, the characters were interesting and had potential. By the end, the writers clearly got lazy and didn't seem to care anymore. Their characters ruined themselves and had absolutely no growth over a six year period. It's sad to see a show end when it started out with such promise. But in the case of Nip/Tuck, it needed to end before the writers drove it into the ground more than they did. I can't even imagine what else they could have done to ruin the characters had they had another season to do so. At the end, I didn't care for any of the characters and was glad to see them go. None of them were special or strong enough to remain in anyone's good graces.

This complete series is amazing. Watch Nip tuck complete series right here and imagine the difficulties the stars of the show might have faced while the episodes were being shot.

I felt like I was saying good-bye to Sean, Christian and all the others in the last episode. Why did Nip-Tuck have to end? There are still millions of people who love to watch Nip-Tuck, not only in Usa but all around the world. I wish they bring Nip-Tuck back soon.

In reply to what Katie said, I was sad after Kimber's death too. I really didn't likeit at first but hen you think about it, it is the perfect ending for Kimber. She ALWAYS needed a man and couldn't support herself. Once all of the men in her life were finally done with her, she was just done in general. I also liked how the rest of the characters' stories ended. It was uneventful but appropriate. We finally saw the characters go where they were meant to go wit their lives. It wasn't a bad finale, just completely different than most Nip/Tuck episodes.

Hearing "All I know" was probably the best thing in the episode. I got abit teary. I liked the music repeatition this last season like during the episode with Escobar.

Am also one of those who's watched every single episode and got the DVDs too.
The finale was somewhat alright. Maybe they could have offered us an ending like 'Six Feet Under', i most certainly would have wanted to see how they end up in life and that should have been together. I have loved Sean & Christian together and they've been through so much together but somehow still end up somewhat together and happy.

It was nice to have Ava back. Am ok with the fact that she's never changed. Matt should have been run over by 4trucks seasons back. He's been most useless since season 2.

In related thoughts: I hope that 'Glee' doesn't get over-the-top too fast.
Dylan Walsch's new role in the CBS pilot sounds very similar to Sean McNamara.

Man do i like that dude

I wish TV Squad had announced they wouldn't be reviewing the show anymore. After the second-to-last episode, I kept checking the website for the recap and a forum to discuss. It's just nice to keep your loyal readers in the loop.

I agree Kate...I visit this site daily and was highly disappointed that the reviews for Nip/Tuck simply vanished. I even wrote an email to the powers that be here that went unanswered. One would think they would take the time, but noooo.

I was a bit disappointed the series finale went out whimpering instead of with a bang, something we came to expect with this serious. I am however, happy to know the "ending" for all the characters.

The show lacked in later seasons, but I watched every episode like it was a drug I needed. Nip/Tuck will be missed.

I've watched Nip/Tuck since it started and I'm pretty happy with how it ended. I think they made some logical choices in how to wrap up the story without going overboard. I respect that the writers didn't try to take a "shocking" angle by doing some off the wall killing/catastrophe spree.

Everyone has moved on in their own way, some by choice, some with no choice, some to end a vicious cycle. There's still a love between most of the characters that started their relationships; there isn't a smoldering crater left behind that would keep them from cutting off contact for the rest of their lives.

The fanboy inside me is sad to see the show end, but it was time. Even through roughest parts of the show, I enjoyed the ride and I'm stoked that FX and everyone involved made one of the best TV shows ever made. Thanks for the memories.

I agree. I was hoping for a full emotional blow out that would lead Christian and Sean seeking to end their relationship by attempting to kill each other with one or both succeeding. How else do you end a show that has been traveling on the edge of true darkness. The writers copped out with a wishy-washy ending.

I stopped watching this show after the Carver debacle. What was Famke's return about and what happened?
