'Nip/Tuck' music cuts like a knife

Courtesy of Variety: 'Nip/Tuck' music cuts like a knife

From the very beginning, showrunner Ryan Murphy and "Nip/Tuck" used music -- both songs and underscore -- in unexpected ways.

"Ryan's vision was always clear," says music supervisor P.J. Bloom. "He wanted a combination of big songs everyone knows and ultra-hip material that accentuates the decadent world in which our characters live."

Quick Hits:

Dylan Walsh
" — I felt the finale should have been more about some closure with the things we’d already set up. It seemed like an odd thing to do."

Julian McMahon
“I know that some people felt like it was less than what you should do on “Nip/Tuck.”

Joely Richardson
“I thought it was an absolute page-turner..."

John Hensley
“This is anticlimactic to me. I was craving for there to be some great twist..."

Kelly Carlson
“I found myself reading the script and getting a little pissed off that my child was going with Ava. I was a little mad. I was a little upset. It made me sick.”

Final Nip/Tuck Episode Tonight!!!!

It's been a while since my last post but this is it!!!!! What are you expecting? What are you hoping for? Drop me a line either by comment or in the forum.


Thoughts on the finale:

Look, anyone who has watched Nip/Tuck from the beginning knows that Sean and Christian were on very self-distructive paths. In the end. they both saw it and finally had the courage to take a new path in life. That's what this episode was about.

Christian and Sean both knew that for their own happiness this had to be done. It may work out and it may not but it's something that had to happen. Even Matt decided to take on a new path. It may not have been the right one and probably isn't but that's what he needed to do and had been trying to do for some time.

Christian will always be the Christian we know and love... the womanizing, sex addicted, self indulgent who's only real relationship will be with Liz while Sean is away.

Sean will be the Sean we know and love. He'll get to do something he truly loves and maybe, for the first time in his life have a normal life without all the "plastic" overtones. Sean doesnt want the same life that Christian does and never did. Sean wants a family and now he can work on that without Christian always begging for his attention and demanding that he interrupt his life to save him from his own.

Liz will continue to be the backbone for Christian. Their partnership may end in sheer disaster but it's a path that she needs to take as well.

In the end, all we can assume is that the characters will have a better chance without each other than with each other.

I enjoyed the finale... it may not have been the best one in the series but at least it left us thinking more about the characters than recent episodes.

It's late so I apologize for the spelling mistakes / grammar/ typos if there are any. ;)

Nip/Tuck Final Nine - Season Premiere Dan Daly

Nip/Tuck is coming to an end and it looks like the path will lead to the end of McNamara/Troy. This episode basically highlighted all the tension that has been brewing between Christian and Sean (mostly felt by Sean). Flashbacks in this episode give us the impression that Christian has manipulated Sean from the very beginning while they were in college. Sean was at the top of the class while Christian was just having a good time while he skated by. This episode revealed that it was Christian's idea to be in Miami and get into plastic surgery. Sean wanted to go to Harvard and become a doctor in order to "make a difference." Ultimately, it was Christian who sabotaged those dreams.

Sean and Christian were honored with a presitgious award from their alma mater for all the ground-breaking work they've done - sort of a lifetime achievement award. Things were going smoothly until Sean found out that it was actually a donation by Christian on behalf of the both of them that ultimately led to the honor. Christian said that this would keep them in business for another 25 years and while his intentions were good, Sean just felt it was another backstab and sham that Christian has done to him time and time again.

A couple of weird plot points came up:

-Christian who always practices safe sex apparently got his interior decorator pregnant leading to his "snip/snip."

-Christian appears to be on a spending spree since forging Sean's name on the line of credit against the business. Not only is he remodeling the office but he also made a 200K donation in order to receive the award in the episode.

-Kimber/Christian are now married. We went from proposal to marriage without the whole marriage episode inbetween. Kimber is apparently already on the lookout for Christian's cheating ways but missed his first trist with the decorator.

Highlights of the next episode look pretty wild as Sean and Kimber start to heat up!
