Edited 3/15/09 - WARNING - SPOILER ALERT

This season, we discover that Julia's baby is Sean's, and that it has Ectrodactyly (lobster claw syndrome). Surgeries include Sean doing a procedure on a Treacher/Collins syndrome patient (severe facial deformity), Dawn Budge is "earjacked" (her ear sliced off by an earring thief) a burn reconstruction on Escobar (he's back!), and a breast reconstruction on a woman (Escobar's wife) who's had her breasts brutally cut off.

Guest stars include Brooke shields as Faith Wolper (Christian's therapist), Larry Hagman and Sanaa Lathan as Burt and Michelle Landau, Peter Dinklage as Marlowe Sawyer, Rosie O'Donnell as Dawn Budge, Jacqueline Bisset as James LeBeau, Alanis Morissette as Poppy (Liz's girlfriend), plus the stellar, fantastic, and sexy Catherine Deneuve as Diana Lubey.

Some of the plotlines this season include Liz (the fantastic Roma Maffia) getting a kidney stolen (a la urban legend), the dog and the peanut butter, Matt joins Scientology, Sean has an affair with a potential nanny, Christian gets involved with Michelle, James (a woman) LeBeau has a dangerous hold over Michelle - running an organ theft ring, Christian battles with his own sexuality after his therapist hints that he might be gay, Liz's remaining kidney fails and she has to go on dialysis, Kimber seduces Matt to revenge Christian, Julia sleeps with Marlowe, Merrill Bobbitt returns, Wilber (Christian's "son") returns.

My favorite is the return of Escobar (Robert LaSardo). Escobar is so bad he's good, and he makes for a few great episodes. This time he's not just masking as Sean's conscience, he's really back.

You know a season is completely nuts when one of the most sane plot points is about an Organ Harvesting Ring!! This show is SO deliriously over the top...I just had a blast. Watching it, my wife and I often found ourselves just looking at each other and shaking our heads in disbelief. Can you imagine that if people in "real life" had to endure what Sean, Christian and company had to endure, they'd have long since died of strokes or heart attacks or just plain stress!

The show makes the machinations in everything from DALLAS to DYNASTY to SIX FEET UNDER look like perfectly normal, even boring occurences.

I love this show because it not only doesn't fear being outrageous, it THRIVES on it. Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon have the perfect blend of well-rooted and skillful acting, with just a dash of over-the-top over-acting. Not for one minute is the show "believable," but it draws us in nonetheless, thanks in large part to the skill of the two main actors. They are a joy to watch, both as characters and performers. I particulary like Christian Troy. Never more than in this season have we seen his blend of totally self-serving boorishness (and cruelty) peppered with true, honest feelings. He has a new love in this season, and theirs is a complicated relationship that you root for...even though you know it probably won't go well.

Meanwhile, Sean McNamara and his wife Julie are expecting a child, whom they discover has a very rare birth defect, and they must grapple with the preparations for that, and then the aftermath of the birth. This is actually fairly touching and when little Connor arrives, we truly feel for a darling little baby saddled with such a horrible defect.

Well Season 4 of Nip/Tuck wasn't all it could have been. The first three seasons were brilliant and inventive. Season 4 seemed more like a second rate soap opera than a groundbreaking television show. Organ thievery, the "cult" of Scientology, the affair with a little person, a flashback, a flash foward, this season was full of cliches that played out only slightly better than the last show you saw them in. Don't get me wrong I love Nip/Tuck, and season four was better than most other shows on television, but not by much. If you love Nip/Tuck you will probably like this season alright. If you've been on the fence about this show, season four will probably push you over the edge (on the wrong side).

An extremely disappointing season! I was a die hard Nip/Tuck fan until I watched Season 4. I kept watching hoping it would get better, but it seems the writers were really digging for material to keep us interested, and ended up with a bunch of ridiculous happenings that bounced from place to place. Nip/Tuck 'jumped the shark' this year with their look into the future, turning a present day suave and debonair Christian into a Liberace look alike. We could feel nothing but pity for Sean acting like a 90lb weakling throughout the season. The only thing that kept the interest was Joely Richardson's outstanding acting ability and the host of guest stars - Rosie O'Donnell was fantastic!

Oh BOY...how can a show that I love change in mere Seasons? I vowed last season that I would not watch anymore unless the writing improved. But oh boy, things have only gotten worse. A show that use to capitalize on grit and glamour, now appears to merely be trying to cover-up bad writing with sex and frankly more sex. I decided to just catch up on the entire season, give the show another chance, and hoped for the best. Unfortunately, I had trouble stomaching it. It was just too much. Storylines involving birth defects and organ thefts, and other issues have finally made me reconsider watching the show. The only redeeming value for the show was the return of the tattooed man. It appears that a show about the superficial has become just that. Perhaps a return to those original thoughts and ideas for the show will bring new life into the series. I guess the ultimate question is "Will I give Season 5 a chance"? Probably not unless someone tells me that the old fire is back. Unfortunately, Nip/Tuck may have lost a die hard fan unless some real changes occur.
