My thoughts on the Nip/Tuck Season 5...

I know I have been quiet the past couple of weeks. Outside of Matt almost getting into gay porn, I havent been impressed with the episodes. Plastic Fantastic was a joke. There's a reason why we watch Nip/Tuck, we're sick and tired of reality TV and then the writer's go ahead and do it... What are they thinking?!?

I'm tired of Julia. Why is she still on the west coast? Why isnt she going back to NY? Why doesnt she care about Connor? Where the heck has Wilbur been and what happened to Annie? What happened to the Matt and Kimber's baby? I am starting to think this show is a tribute to child neglect.

The show used to be about the patients and the connection that Sean and Christian had with them. There hasnt been any connection with the patients coming in and out this year outside of Rosie who they already had a storyline for. I was expecting the last episode to feature a confrontation regarding the male escort service that Christian has gotten himself into. I guess he dropped it after the woman almost died but again, we're left with nothing. Poor writing....

This season is all over the map and while it is funnier, I am not watching the show for humor. These guys arent comedians. I want to see them get in and out of trouble... drama. In previous seasons we would have seen Sean go to town on Eden, not just a little kiss. Why would he risk it for that??? Go all the way or dont do anything. Sean almost put Kate in contraction imagining her as Eden, the schoolgirl. Then when he gets his chance, he gives a peck? Doesnt make sense to me.

The previews for next week look great. I am looking forward to Julia and Ollie's attack. I hope for the worst as bad as that sounds. Julia's way too emotional and even says in the preview to "kill us already." Who says that when you're friend/lover/companion is standing next to you? I would have said "speak for yourself..." Tell me what you think should happen with Julia's character. I've added a poll to the site. Do you think she should get back together with Sean? Maybe Christian? Should she stay with Ollie? Are you wishing Ollie breaks her heart? What about just seeing her return to the west coast? Vote on the site and leave me some comments or chat about it in the forum here. Nip/Tuck Season 5 Chat

I'm on the french first site about Nip/Tuck and I often visit your blog cause I'm glad you really see how bad the show came, I was used to go on Niptuckforum to read what were the opinion on the other side of the Atlantic and I just was sick of reading all those congratulations post ,when the show keeps going down since a while now, whereas all the people I know who loved Nip/Tuck just find it interestless now.

This fifth season deceive me so much, I was naive and thought that moving to hollywood would bring back the first and second season, in fact it just turn the show to a fucking damn soap (except for the dawn Budge II episode,it was pretty good), I hate Ryan Murphy for destroying what was, a long time ago , "a disturbingly perfect Drama"

Sorry for my english and once more, congratulation for your blog.

NoOne, thanks for the feedback and I appreciate your loyalty and interest in reading my opinion. I created this site with the goal in mind that everyone could share their opinion good or bad. I dont blame Ryan Murphy, realizing that it is hard to keep a show going year after year. I am just disappointed in lack of character development of the patients.

Bobolit, Escobar, Mrs. Grubman, Sofia Lopez, Rhea Reynolds, and so many others were developed so much more than this year's crew. Christian and Sean made their work their life and not the other way around. Sean's family was a backdrop...not the focus. The focus was always Sean and Christian and the work that they do. Just my $.02

I have to say that I'm sort of ready for this show to go off.
I love the whole Eden dealie because I love that Sean's hypocritical azz is in a sling.
I think Julia's lesbian relationship is so passe. I hate that Sean is getting attention putting my dude Christian on the back burner.
When will the son just jump ship because his character is possibly more annoying than Julia. I'm so done with anything they have for him.
I think they've probably wrung everything they could out of Nip/Tuck.
What really destroyed this show was the whole non secret of The Carver. I mean yeah the twist was that his sister was the cop but yeah...that kinda landed with a clump.
So far this season I've liked the shows in general but I haven't watched the past two episodes as I find myself just waiting to watch them back to back.
Well, I'm just ready for either something to change or this show to end. I miss the great writing and the fact that Christian got all the play!
