Product Description

Beauty, the saying goes, is only skin deep. The beauty of Nip/Tuck is that it goes deeper, laying bear the complexities and fragile natures often found in patients seeking cosmetic surgery. Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon portray hotshot Miami South Beach plastic surgeons who are themselves in full-blown midlife crises as they confront career, family and romance problems. The series' cutting-edge stories range from funny to suspenseful to uncommonly powerful. The surgeries are graphically bold. The sexuality is rampant. Presented here in 13 first-season episodes on 5 discs and featuring compelling extras, the highly praised Nip/Tuck is a prescription for entertainment unlike anything you've ever seen.

The turbulent lives of two handsome and high-priced Miami plastic surgeons may be one of the more unusual premises for a television series, but the FX Channel's Nip/Tuck combines sudsy sex and biting wit with the emotional quandaries involved in body modification in a way that makes for an engrossing--and occasionally gross--hourlong drama. The show benefits greatly from its two leads--Dylan Walsh as the troubled "good" surgeon and Julian McMahon as his predatory (but equally troubled) "bad" partner--as well as Joely Richardson as Walsh's wife and Roma Maffia as the surgeons' nurse. If Nip/Tuck does have a stumbling point, it's in its occasionally glib dialogue (series creator Ryan Murphy was a writer for the verbally flashy high school series Popular), which can clash with an episode's more dramatic and poignant moments. The show also doesn't shy away from showing the more gruesome aspects of plastic surgery, but viewers can often see more stomach-churning images on the top-rated CSI. But the strength of the performances and the originality of the premise make these rough spots manageable for viewers looking for an interesting spin on the usual "doctor show." The five-DVD set offers an extended version of the pilot and all 12 episodes of the first season as well as a trio of documentaries (one on the show itself, another on its special effects, and a third, "Realistic Expectations," on real-life plastic surgeons). A gag reel (amusingly titled "Severed Parts"), a selection of deleted scenes for most episodes, and a music video for the title theme ("A Perfect Lie" by the Engine Room) round out the box. --Paul Gaita

Wow did I love this series! I missed it during the original broadcast, but based on what people have told me, I gambled on this box set. I feel like I hit the jackpot.

It's definitely not for everyone though. No sirree.

First of all, if you're squeamish, the brilliantly reproduced surgeries can be a bit nauseating. (I'm a surgeon, and I loved 'em. My wife, an ex-nurse, had to close her eyes...)
Second, if you are at all uncomfortable with the topic of sex, stay away. This series will plant you into situations you have not even imagined. Bouncing between hilarity and discomfort, sex is definitely a theme throughout the 13 shows.

Third, if you appreciate good acting, it does not get any better than this. Seriously. This is "Sopranos" good; "NYPD Blue" good. The two lead performances are pitch-perfect, both deeply flawed and often morally reprehensible individuals who at the end of the day, you can't help but root for. The "supporting" players are a heck lot more than that, and provide tons of drama, amusement and eye candy.
There is beauty and ugliness everywhere, from an absolutely gorgeous female figure to a purely evil drug dealing psychopath. That's just in one episode.

Fourth, the screenwriting is bling-bling eye-popping, smart as all hell and consistently surprising. The thirteen episodes link nicely together, the first ones dovetailing back into the last ones. I was constantly taken aback at the twists, the lines, the situations they came up with. Let's just say that I learned in the very first episode that crocodiles prefer ham to human flesh. And that fact is actually important to the story...

Plastic surgeons Dr. Sean McNamara(Dylan Walsh)and Dr. Christian Troy(Julian McMahon)have been best friends since college, and run one of the best and most profitable practices in all of Florida. However, their personal lives often get in the way. Sean's marriage to his wife Julia(Joely Richardson)is on the rocks and he has trouble connecting with his teenage son Matt(John Hensley)which causes Sean to begin going through a mid-life crisis. Christian is a ladies man who has seemingly slept with half of the women in Florida. His "love them then leave them" lifestyle often gets him into trouble. Christian also lacks ethics, drinks too much, and is willing to operate on just about anyone to keep the money rolling in. Each episode of Nip/Tuck deals with a particular patient that Sean and Christian are operating on, along with everything that is going on in their personal lives as well.
When I first heard about Nip/Tuck I was highly skeptical because a show that is based on plastic surgery does not sound all that entertaining. However, if there was ever a time to apply the rule of "never judge a book by its cover" it is with this show. Even though the effects of the sugeries themselves are groundbreaking and extremely graphic, there is only about 10-15 minutes of actual plastic surgery in each episode. What makes Nip/Tuck such a great show, is the fact that the storytelling and episode quality is so good that it is almost unreal. While the patients that Sean and Christian operate on differ from episode to episode, the overall story of what is happening in their personal lives manages to continue and build throughout the season. For a show that is supposed to deal with something as superficial as plastic surgery, Nip/Tuck has incredible depth to it.

A lot of ground-breaking, long-running programmes have finished in the past two years, and they all seem to be my favourites! Buffy is gone, as is Sex And The City, and of course, who could forget Friends? I thought I'd have nothing to watch on TV anymore, Will & Grace being my only saviour, but then along came Nip/Tuck in August 2004. Originally broadcast on cable in the UK, the show was sold to Channel 4 and advertised as the next big thing. With commercials for this hip, sexy and stylish new drama every half an hour, there can't be one single person who watches Channel 4 who doesn't know about it. The ratings show this: Nip/Tuck has gone on to become a massive ratings hit in the past two months that it has been on air, and I for one am completely sold.

Let me first say that Nip/Tuck is definitely not a show for everyone. It contains many scenes of medical gore and explicit sex scenes, along with strong language and distressing moments of human revelation. I'm not deterred by these factors, but sometimes I have to look away during the medical scenes. Basically, the show revolves around the two lead characters, Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) and Dr. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) who own a blossoming plastic surgeon practice in Miami South Beach. They are lifetime friends, but are rather different in character - Dr. Troy is a single, middle-aged, sex-maniac who is commitment-phobic. This is partly due to childhood experiences, yet one cannot feel total sympathy for his manipulative and devious ways. He is very sexy and woman can't resist him. Dr. McNamara is the sensible family-man, happily married to Julia (Joely Richardson) and the adoring father of two children, Matt (John Hensley) being the son.
