The 13 Strangest 'Nip/Tuck' Moments Ever

An era comes to an end with the series finale of the cutting edge cable series Nip/Tuck on Wednesday, March 3 at 10pm on FX. The show about hot shot plastic surgeons pushed the boundaries of TV every week with graphic surgery scenes and over-the-top storylines that would shock even the most mature audiences into submission. From incest to bestiality to castration, no subject was off limits for Nip/Tuck and there was no line the show wouldn't cross. TV will probably never see a show as outrageous as this one. In a single episode you could laugh hysterically and turn away in disgust, sometimes at the same moment. To Read More Click Here .

'Nip/Tuck' - 'Christian Troy II' Recap Season 7, Episode 7

As 'Nip/Tuck' winds down (if you can believe it, there's only two episodes left), an episode like 'Christian Troy II' (the first Christian-as-patient episode was in season two) was inevitable. Despite their numerous similarities, the one thing that Christian has always had more of than Sean is feelings of inadequacy. Granted, when you consider the tragedies he's endured (being molested by his father and getting sodomized by The Carver both come to mind), it's not like he lacks a reason for not always feeling 100% about himself. For the most part, Christian has risen above these feelings by becoming one of TV's most superficial characters. But it's good to know that even he still has doubts about himself, and more importantly, what he does for a living. A week after we saw Christian and Sean duke it out in front of Dr. Griffin, it seemed as though their business was about to implode because of each other. After tonight's episode, we saw a different side -- McNamara/Troy might be near its end because of the business itself. It's a smart observation that Ryan Murphy and Co. would have been remiss to not mention. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

'Nip/Tuck' - 'Dr. Griffin' Recap Season 7, Episode 6

Saving the best for last, the final season of 'Nip/Tuck' is firing on all cylinders right now and 'Dr. Griffin' easily stands out as one of the final run's, and possibly the series', finest episodes. Highlighting the symbiotic, and often parasitic, relationship that Drs. McNamara and Troy have shared over the years, 'Dr. Griffin' could have been a boring romp as our two favorite plastic surgeons sat on a therapist's couch and laid their feelings bare. Instead, what resulted, was a charged exploration of how these two people really feel about each other. On many levels, Sean and Christian's dialogue trudged thorough familiar territory but the key was that it was familiar to fans -- not them. While we knew about Christian forging Sean's signature for the loan or Sean's affair with Kimber right before her suicide, they didn't. Seeing them react to these revelations that have been simmering in the background for weeks was nothing short of riveting. Hats off to Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon for injecting a burst of energy into two characters that have grown stale because we know them so well. Seeing Sean and Christian like this is a reminder of what made 'Nip/Tuck' so good in the first place. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: 'Nip/Tuck' - 'Virginia Hayes' Season 7, Episode 5

As some shows reach the end of their run, they often aren't able to properly address many of their most important lingering plots. Either the show is canceled abruptly and hardly anything gets answered or if it was a hit, network economics kick in and the show runs so long that what does or doesn't get answered is never enough for the fans that stuck it out. 'Nip/Tuck,' however, seems to have entered its final season with a bit of a happy medium -- seven seasons is still a long run for a drama, but Ryan Murphy and Co. have never let fans forget about the original sin that started it all. In the same way that the bullet Vic Mackey put in Terry Crowley's face in the pilot episode of 'The Shield' became crucial during that show's final season, it's looking more and more like all those hams that Sean and Christian bought in the 'Nip/Tuck' series premiere might be the very thing that ends up driving them apart. Of course, I'm referring to the cover up of Silvio Perez's murder. If you recall, he molested Escobar Gallardo's six year old daughter and got facial reconstruction from McNamara/Troy to help him get away. Escobar found out, but so did Silvio's brother Alejandro and he eventually killed him. Left with a body to clean up (and a connection with Escobar that lasted until the end of season four) Sean and Christian wrapped Silvio's body in about a dozen honey-glazed spiral hams and threw him in the Everglades. For ten years they had gotten away with it. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: Nip/Tuck - Sheila Carlton Season 7, Episode 4

Just when it looked like we were on our way to a major break-up, Nip/Tuck threw fans a curve ball last night as we head in to the series' final five episodes. For as much as Sean may despise Christian, what he's done, and how he acts, sticking with him for 25 years has left a scar -- Sean may see himself as the opposite of Christian, but the rest of the world views them as one and the same. On some level Sean must realize that. If he didn't, the same impulses that he had when Curtis' wife Sarah came on to him last night would have been triggered the first time he thought about sex with Kimber. Within Sean, it seems at times his own conscience is at war with a simmering jealousy for what Christian gets away with. He may frown upon Christian's infidelities, but after what he did with Kimber, he's no better. Sean may be the only person who knows what he did now, but that doesn't matter -- the scent of Christian has tainted Sean no matter how he views himself. So it wasn't much of a surprise when Curtis accused Sean of sleeping with his wife. Obviously, Sean said no to Sarah but his association with Christian negated anything Sean said. It's killed his credibility. I did, however, find it a little odd that Curtis so willingly believed his wife. He must've had no idea she was sleeping around on him. Regardless, no "more saving the children in Africa" for Sean. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: Nip/Tuck - Joel Seabrook Season 7, Episode 3

Nip/Tuck's final season continued last night and the deep examination of Sean and Christian's relationship got fleshed out even further as the rift between the two of them continued to grow. These two are set on a collision course by the end of the season, though Sean seems to be doing everything in his power to just walk away. It's becoming increasingly clear that Sean is the key to all McNamara/Troy's success and the closer he gets to reclaiming the life he always wanted, the more on edge Christian is becoming. The problem with that? Their conflict is starting to spill over into the lives of their loved ones. Despite Christian's long-held beliefs that he's been instrumental in getting himself and Sean to where they are, if you really sit back and think about it... he isn't. What exactly has he contributed? Poor surgical skills? An ever-increasing mountain of debt? And an endless line of patients looking to get D-cups, thus creating the most stale and repetitive work environment imaginable? Without Sean, Christian is nothing and the bottom line is that he will not succeed on his own. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: Nip/Tuck - Willow Banks Season 7, Episode 2

Imperfection. Though it's something that Nip/Tuck has tried to buck since its inception, and despite the claims of Drs. McNamara and Troy being able to make you perfect, the notion of imperfection has, in a way, always been the core issue of this show. But just like the surgeries performed week in and out, there are layers upon layers that make up the idea of perfection vs. imperfection and, more importantly, how different people perceive that battle. This week's episode of Nip/Tuck tackled that issue in what was arguably one of the most nuanced and, yes, layered, episodes in the series yet. Considering that we're in the midst of Nip/Tuck's swan song, "Willow Banks" might very well turn out to be one of the show's most important installments when we finally have the opportunity to look back on the series as a whole. While I complained last week that it was annoying more often than not when the patient's struggles so closely mirrored the struggles of the main characters, I gave it a pass because Dan Daly's story (and how it related to Sean and Christian) was done so well. Again, this week, that complaint needs to take a backseat as it seems that those parallels are going to be necessary to the narrative in these final episodes. Rupert Kenny (Huff's Andy Comeau) and Willow Banks' (Chuck's Mini Anden) individual stories brought about one of the best character studies we've seen yet in Sean and Christian.

'Nip/Tuck' final-season premiere: A lip-chewing drama by Ken Tucker Season 7, Episode 1

Praising restraint on Nip/Tuck is like complimenting the Incredible Hulk for not turning green - it's denying the nature of the beast. Yet last night's final-season premiere was, by Nip/Tuck standards, relatively tame. Oh, sure, you got one of the series' standard 'shocking' patients, a man who compulsively chews his own lips off. The hour was more concerned, however, with exploring the roots of Christian and Sean's relationship, complete with flashbacks using younger actors. The two men's traits were fully in place when they joined up in college, with Christian always urging Sean to loosen up and have decadent fun. One line last night stood out for me: It was when Christian said to Sean, 'You are never gonna guilt or change me - don't you know that by now?' This was a small nod to the fact that we're coming to the end of the series, and that Sean should have learned this lesson by now.

Review: Nip/Tuck - Dan Daly (season premiere) - Season 7, Episode 1

With only eight episodes left in Nip/Tuck's run, I know I'm not alone in hoping that Ryan Murphy and Co. have a solid plan for ending what's arguably been one the most groundbreaking shows of the past decade. Don't forget -- season one nabbed the Golden Globe for best drama. It's not that the show has become less buzzworthy since its stellar freshman year, but in some regards the plots in subsequent seasons have always felt like something far more important was being put off. While entertaining, stories like The Carver or the organ smuggling ring have really just been diversions. What happened in last night's season seven premiere was a long time coming and it sets in motion a conflict that's been simmering since Sean and Christian bought all those spiral hams in the pilot episode. Last night's episode expertly plotted, both through present day actions and some excellent flashbacks, precisely why Sean has for so long had equal parts love and hate for Christian. Past indiscretions (mainly the affair with Julia and Matt's paternity) have been known for some time, but the revelation that their conflict goes back even before their days at med school was jaw-dropping.

'Nip/Tuck' returns - LA Times Review

FX's envelope-pushing show about plastic surgeons begins its final season. Silly? Yes, but always entertaining. Without disputing the place of Nip/Tuck in the history of basic-cable envelope-pushing, with its graphic scenes of cosmetic surgery and its myriad crazy sexcapades, I must say I have never been especially attached to this show, which begins its nine-episode seventh and final season tonight. (Its final episode will be its 100th.) I have checked in over the years, professionally, but it is not something that calls me back to watch for pleasure. At the same time, I understand it's the sort of show that best rewards the dedicated viewer, because its plot lines -- which have involved porn, prostitution, drug addiction, kidney stealing, Scientology, serial rape/disfigurement and at least a couple of homicidal maniacs in a story about a couple of plastic surgeons -- are so relentlessly outrageous that to stand outside it at all is to see the whole business as silly beyond belief.
