Nip/Tuck: Can't Wait for Next Season!
Ok.. I've tried to get into the Shield but I just can't. I watch a bunch of the reruns over the weekend as FX has played like 4 of them back to back to back. I dont know why but I just cant get into it and I am a fan of Law and Order, CSI, and many of other police shows and movies. I guess the corruption, street gangs, and backstabbing is just more than I can stomach. At least I gave it a shot. I'm honestly waiting for Rescue Me which is a lot closer to the Nip/Tuck style of writing and direction. It cant get here soon enough.
So here I am looking for the latest info on Nip/Tuck when I run across the following article Fifth Season Of `Shield' Has Promising Start ...by Roger Catlin. Now, I already disagree about The Shield but I read on anyway when I come to this part...
"Unlike, say, this year's season of "Nip/Tuck," "The Shield" feels like it has a lot of life still in it. "
So the first thought in my head is what is this clown talking about? Where did that come from? The article had nothing to do with Nip/Tuck and the guy takes a pot shot about a show he probably isnt a fan of to begin with and probably hasnt followed from its pilot like many REAL fans have! I was pissed!.... practically offended!
This year features a season finale setting an FX record for viewers, it kept people wondering all year who the Carver was, brought new characters and new villains to the spotlight, and has already signed for season four! How can anyone say that this season doesnt have any life left? We last see our villains drinking Mai Tais or Margaritas or whatever poolside eyeing their next victim after getting away scott free! We had Matt who is connected with a murder going into next season eating family dinner as if nothing happened (hannibal lecter style)! LOL...
I guess certain people just like watching poverty, gang violence, police corruption, and politics on a regular basis. I can get that by watching the nightly news!
