(S04E07) This episode was a bit of a departure for Nip/Tuck. It wasn't bad, I loved it. It just felt different. In some scenes, it was a even real tear-jerker which is very odd. With this show, if your eyes well up, it's usually because of a graphic surgery scene and you're cringing... not because you actually feel sad. Let me say this though. At first, when I heard the news that Rosie O'Donnell was in talks to give Dawn Budge new life in a Nip/Tuck spin-off, I thought it sounded ridiculous. Well, she sold me on the idea in this episode. O'Donnell is funny in this role. It suits her very well and I think the series could be pretty good if they do it right.
(S04E06) Man, nothing is off limits with this show. It just keeps getting more and more bizarre. I mean it. Just when you thought Nip/Tuck had really addressed everything, it smacks you upside the face again. This week? Voyeuristic geriatrics, sexual addiction, and guilt. Lots of guilt.
(S04E03) It's finally here. We told you about it months ago and now the day has arrived. Mario Lopez is on Nip/Tuck. Despite my excitement, I'm kind of creeped out by him. Just look at his eyes in that picture. Plus he's giving Christian butt lipo, which is a horrible thing to think about by itself. Actually, now that I think about it, forget the character he's playing (rival plastic surgeon Mike Hamoui), I'm creeped out by Lopez period. He's everywhere right now. Plenty of stations still air Saved by the Bell reruns, he's on The Bold and the Beautiful, and now he's making headlines on Dancing with the Stars. Enough!
Despite "The Lopez Factor" (that's right, I'm naming it), this was an outstanding episode. By far the best one so far this season. Plenty happened, most notably the birth of Connor McNamara, Sean and Julia's new son.
(S04E02) I'm liking this season so far, but it feels different than seasons past. Plot points are layering themselves very deliberately and it seems like things are really setting up for some explosive episodes later in the season rather than one blow-out after another as we've seen in the past. It feels much more intricate. In last week's premiere, I was quick to chide Ryan Murphy and Co. for neglecting to mention the events of season three, but now that I've thought about it some more, it only seems right that Nip/Tuck attempts to reinvent itself at this stage in the game.
(S04E01) Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else find it hard to believe that we're already beginning the fourth season of Nip/Tuck? I feel like this show just started yesterday and here we are on the 45th episode of this spectacular series. I guess time flies when you're having fun. And by "fun" I mean boob jobs, unprotected sex, and botox. Lots of botox.
