NIP Tuck.. big fan of this show since it is a coming of age, nitty gritty drama that showcases the lives of two plastic surgeons and their business in a very materialistic world. it is raw, stunning and was one of the first tv shows that actually shocked people with what the business is like and how women feel like they are not good enough because of the pressure that society puts on them. while me, i would never consider plastic surgery, i do feel like if i was in the hands of mcknamara /troy i might consider it. ;)
Nip/Tuck is a masterful medical drama. Quite often a surgery of the week show, it focuses on two Miami plastic surgeons who own their own firm. Funny, gross, and surprisingly poignant, if you've never seen it you should check it out!
This show is truly brilliant in depicting many many issues of our society. As most shows it does peak at season 3 but for me it was impossible to drop it. It's full of witty dialogue, interesting characters and plotlines. Even if drama of the characters gets annoying, the-patient-of-the-day storylines are always something that should not be missed.
It started off very interestingly (and I just have a weakness for Julian because of Charmed), but it really went of the rails in the end. Storylines got rehashed but in really confusing ways. First seasons are definitely worth the watch though.
I'm not a big fan of medical shows so I showed some reticence when it came to Nip/Tuck. But one thing is sure, it has absolutely nothing to do with medicine. It's very funny, cynic and brings up a lot of thematics.
I didnt start watching until after the show concluded. I can same i am not a meterialitic person, so why would i watch this? The simplicity and the acting was phenominal. One if the good ones that started out FX with a bang. Grateful for the experience :)
