One of the best cable shows ever broadcast, "Nip/Tuck" closes its doors at its plastic surgery clinic for the final time. This boxset includes all 19 episodes from the final season and comes with bonuses including a gag reel, deleted scenes, and an informative featurette called "Tell Me What You Don't Like About Youself?".
To say that I am going to miss Sean and Christian as well as the rest of the cast is an understatement. Very rarely do we see shows of this caliber; the writing, acting, and production values are what made it stand out from most network shows and I doubt if we will ever see a series of this quality dramatizing stories with plastic surgery as its main content ever again.
The final season has a slew of guest stars including the marvelous Vanessa Redgrave and hunky Mario Lopez reprising their roles from previous seasons. The stories are also daring as the season begins with Liz attempting to take Christian to the cleaners in a nasty divorce settlement; Julia's mother's attempt in adopting Annie; and the most shocking story in which Matt winds up in prison with his psychotic roomate wanting him to have breast implants!
This wonderful boxset will be available in stores on June 8th, 2010.
Goodbye "Nip/Tuck"...you were a class act!

Throughout this final season, our two doctors begin to see signs that they may be redundant in a financial world which crashed. Their success was largely dependent on lots of cash being available for elective cosmetic surgery. Also, Sean's and Christian's relationship becomes the pivotal aspect of the show, not any other relationship. This sets off the best episode in the entire five seasons when the two of them start going to couples psychotherapy with a psychiatrist. I have never laughed so hard as I did through that episode. That was pure five stars all the way. However, the way the series winds down with the final handling of all the characters is what pushes it down to four stars. Many of the characters you've grown to love or hate are brought to conclusions which strain credulity, even in a show which was always campy and over the top. I'm reluctant to say more about how anyone ends up as that will ruin it for viewers. Let me concentrate on the highlights instead: Julia's mother tries to wrest custody away of the children with Julia planning and achieving ultimate comeuppance for her mother at long last. Sean gets involved with a woman who is a black widow style killer who in turn meets a serial killer, which ironically saves Sean. Sean going ballistic with the serial killer in the police station is the ultimate in camp hilarity. Matt tries to find himself as a boardwalk Mime (he's a very good mime) which leads to a massive criminal law mess which presents several way, way over the top resolutions. If your sense of hilarity and absurdity are well in place, you will enjoy this final season. If you take this show seriously, you might hate the final season.Read more ›

But first, I'll tell you what was good about it. It won't take as long.

I'm actually grateful that this was the final season. Too many shows linger far past the point where they've "jumped the shark." Invariably, a good television show lasts because the audience comes to identify with the characters and the various players almost become friends of the viewing family. Nip/Tuck was no exception. Even though some of the characters made absurd decisions and exhibited despicable behavior through the years, the writers managed to make the viewers care about what these people were going to do next. Like other reviewers, I'm going to miss the denizens of the Nip/Tuck universe.

HOWEVER...

I'm very grateful this was the last season. Within the first couple of episodes it becomes pretty apparent that some of the actors are tired of the characters they play. Worse than that, it is VERY clear that the writers had run out of ideas. There are fewer ongoing story threads in this season, the main characters are more predictable than ever, and there really aren't any "innovative" or unique surgeries. The "patient of the week" more often than not is there for common or mundane procedures that we've seen repeatedly in past seasons. The writing has also gotten very sloppy. There are some massive plot holes and even though the show has always been a bit over the top, the writing has always been top-notch up until this final season. I'm going to give an example or two of what I'm talking about in the next paragraph. It's a fairly big spoiler so if you have not seen this season yet skip the next paragraph unless you want to know about fairly major moments involving some of the main characters:

SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ THIS PARAGRAPH IF YOU DON"T WANT TO KNOW!

Well here comes, there goes, "Nip Tuck". After six seasons the production team have moved on to a new and more successful show. It is such a shame that (quite obviously) the team that gave us five funny, crazy, fascinating, ridiculous seasons should opt out so lamely at the end. There is no doubt in my mind that Ryan Murphy and his team were a little distracted when they were putting this season together, and who could blame them. At the same time they were creating the most exciting and successful new TV sensation of the decade. But what "Glee" has gained, "Nip Tuck" has sadly lost. This looks like a contractual obligation on everyone's parts, but if the ridiculous hairbrained, repetitious storylines aren't enough, the actors looked positively bored and almost embarassed by it all . I remember in the Australian press Julian McMahon making some sort of critical remark about the last season when he had to return suddenly to tend to his ailing (famous)mother who sadly has since died.
Why didnt they leave it at season five, one of the best seasons of the series. Nothing is new here and the guest (patients)stars seem to dominate. The regular player are bit by bit written out in less than satisfactory ways. Kelly Clarkson's"suicide" looks like a plot device for her to return in the final episodes, when she doesnt, you ponder in amazement that such a vital character from the series could be written out in such an inappropriate and unbelievable way.

I give it two stars only because the wondrous Vanessa Redgrave returns for two episodes and her moments are the best in the series. Joely Richardson, the other reason for making this season almost bearable is also back but only for four episodes out of nineteen.
