Nip/Tuck Season 5 Premiere: "Carly Summers"
They're baaaack! Welcome back, it's been too long!
Sean and Christian return but this time they're little fish in a BIG pond. They've moved on to the west coast and are taking Hollywood by storm... well more like a little cloud up in a really sunny sky.
The guys havent gotten off to the greatest start and desperation set in when they went bar hopping for new clients. The only good that came with the embarassment was the fact that they hired a publicist to help get things moving. Her first idea... get the guys on TV!
Bradley Cooper (Wedding Crashers) has joined the cast appearing in this Season 5 premiere as a plastic surgeon for a soap opera entitled Hearts and Scalpels. Oliver Platt plays a producer/writer of the soap opera and is quick to point out that he cant keep stealing episodes of Chicago Hope or he'll get sued.
Sean and Christian are quick with new ideas and are quick to recap the pussylips surgery they did a few seasons ago. You've got to love the writers for that one! Stiffler's mom is the actress in the soap opera playing pussylips. Sean and Christian get a small role but its Sean who gets to reap the rewards. You'll love where this goes in future episodes.
We are quickly filled in that Hollywood is all about image and vanity, easily the theme for this year. Christian gets back in the bedroom rather quickly seducing an aging actress in an attempt for a complete plastic surgery makeover. The audience is even treated with a complimentary Christian ass shot.
Our favorite regulars have begun to return. Liz was the first one to return followed by Nurse Linda (without any lines and very quickly slipping in). Matt is in this episode in spirit as he does voiceover for the letter he sent to Sean with pictures of his new baby. Kimber is also mentioned. Wilbur is back! He's getting big too and Sean became a temporary nanny with the boys struggling financially and Christian making his moves on the town.
Tia Carrera makes an appearance as a dominatrix that Sean will soon get involved with. Sean is going to tear the town up and I have a feeling Christian is going to struggle adapting to hollywood and ultimately become a bit jealous of Sean.
Next week's episode brings back Julia. I wasn't a fan of her character before she left so we'll see how that goes. I have a feeling Sean will move on to bigger and better things and hopefully leave Julia in his past where she belongs.
The season has a fresh feel to it with a new city, a new business, new sets and backdrops to go along with tons and tons of guest stars!
