Product Description

He -- or is it she? -- slices, they stitch. He maims, they heal. Plastic surgeons Sean McNamara and Christian Troy have vowed to make whole the victims of the elusive, mysterious serial slasher called the Carver. But mending the rifts in their own families and careers will require much more than their famed technical skills. Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon return for a sensational Season 3 filled with eroticism, suspense and medical challenges ranging from a daring facial transplant to a 650-pound woman whose skin has fused with her sofa. There's a new doctor on staff, too: Dr. Quentin Costa, a tango expert and perhaps an expert at dissecting the practice for his own ends. Plus: Julia launches a new career, troubled Matt falls in with skinheads and the Carver turns out to be.... Sorry, our lips are sealed. Watch and find out.

Deleted Scenes

Over-the-top yet well-written, Nip/Tuck was one of the most intriguing shows on television… until season three, when it took everything--everything--way too far. What once used to be a show about self-worth and society's perception of beauty as portrayed by plastic-surgery patients has become about the abject humiliation of women and rampant storylines. It alienated many fans, who found its love of excess ludicrous and at times, unforgivable. Maybe it was the storyline about Matt (John Hensley), who discovers the love of his life was actually a transsexual, shaves his head and starts dating a white supremacist (American Dreams' Brittany Snow). Or the disturbing new plastic-surgery cases (obese woman physically stuck to her couch, a 17-year-old petrified fetus). Or even the new surgeon Quentin Costa (Bruno Campos) who sleeps with male patients, romances Julia (Joely Richardson) and turns out to have a little "physical quirk" of his own? But the knife that truly stabbed the show's pace into the ground was the ongoing mystery of the Carver, a rapist/killer in a creepy porcelain mask who disfigures victims. Just when the show starts to jell, another character with their mouth cut Black Dahlia-style turns up and throws the show back into a whodunnit, and not even a well-crafted one at that: By the time they reveal the killer's identity, you just don't care anymore.

Someone also made a mess of the characters, or at least turned them all manic-depressive; the moral flip-flopping between Sean (Dylan Walsh) and Christian (Julian McMahon) is inexplicable at best. One goes wild, the other grows a conscience--and then they switch sides. One is on the brink of divorce, the other gets engaged--and another switch. It's headache-inducing how each of the main characters become nonsensical and not the least bit engaging. Here's hoping Nip/Tuck regains its mojo in season four. --Ellen A. Kim

Format: DVD
I realize that by saying anything negative, I will alienate fans of the show. TV fans are a notoriously fickle bunch. I defy you--go to any other TV show DVD listing on Amazon. Pick one that you think is terrible and the fan reviews there will be 5 star! I think you can be a fan, but still be objective. There are lots of shows that I have loved for various reasons--but that doesn't always make them good shows. It means that I have overlooked their flaws.

Now let's talk realistically about "NIp/Tuck". I have seen every episode and continue to watch Season 4. FX created a whole roster of "adult" programs designed to provoke the viewers--to "push the envelope". Trust me, I respect that and I watch them all. "Nip/Tuck" started out a bit erratically--the first season, for me, was about 3 1/2 stars. I saw the promise, yet the episodes lacked a certain cohesion and the characters didn't seem fully flushed out yet. Season 2, however, really hit the stride. It became a gloriously over-the-top soap opera that was good, nasty fun! I LOVED it, especially the deliriously campy Famke Janssen storyline. Still didn't make it a "great" TV show, but it made for "great" TV. I'd have given it 5 stars on entertainment value.

Then there's Season 3. People who object to this season often site the "Carver" storyline as being problematic. I couldn't care less, the "Carver" plot was just as valid as any other (killing mobsters and feeding them to alligators from Season 1, anyone?). The problem for me was a lot more serious.

The show began to sell out it's core characters. Now I have never been a big fan of the McNamara clan. Strangely enough, they are the least compelling part of this show.

Nip/Tuck took awhile to come back and when it did it didn't disapoint at all. It almost even convinces you that Christian was killed by the carver and it turns out that it's just a dream he tells Sean about. While Matt becomes more of a problem especially after he's told that Ava (Famke Janssen) used to be a man. So he sets out to find her or someone like her. Instead he gets mad and beats up a tranny when he sees that he/she has male parts. Matt later on gets chased down by he/shes that beat him up and pee on him.

Also Christian hires a new partner named Quentin while Christian thinks about his future as a plastic surgeon. Neither of them like him much and it doesn't help things when he trys to get with both of them on seperate occasions. Also of course it doesn't make Sean feel any better for him when he starts showing an interest in Julia.

Julia opens up a beauty spa and doesn't get the support from her mother that she wishes she'd get. Which leads to an excellent episode where Julia thinks her mom might've been on a plane that crashed. That's probably the most gripping episode next to the season finale. Things also get serious between Christian and Kimber and the season offers a lot of brilliant moments between the two.

The show can have it's gross-out moments since they are plastic surgeons but if you get into the story and the characters, the show is hard to resist. The season finale is just brilliant and has two edge of your seat moments actually occuring at the same time, now that's good tv! It also manages to make you feel for Matt after making him easy to dislike earlier in the season. He gets stuck in a very bad situation with a girl's father who has to be the most hateful guy on the planet. While Christian and Sean also are in a life threatening situation after it's reveiled who the carver is. This is just a brilliant season that deserves as many nominations as possible.

"Nip/Tuck" is a seriously f****d up television show. I thought "Six Feet Under" was pushing the limits and "Oz" always liked to pour it on, but even if you put those two shows together they are not as f****d up as "Nip/Tuck." There is no other word for it, especially since the producers of this show revel in the fact. I mean, we thought the Carver was pretty bad ("Momma Boone"), and that whole story gets worse ("Rhea Reynolds) and then finds two levels beyond that ("Cherry Peck," "Quentin Costa"). Mercifully that whole subplot comes to an end, although in a whole bunch of ways that we never would have expected. But given some of the other people we meet in Season 3, the Carver ends up being one of the saner people in South Florida. There is "Momma Boone," the obese woman who has to be surgically separated from the couch she has been sitting on for three years. What about the mortuary employee who created a woman, "Frankenlaura," from the body parts of other women? Or "Ben White," who suffers from Body Integrity Identity Disorder and wants his perfectly healthy leg amputated?

I have only recently gotten up to speed with "Nip/Tuck," because I was not especially interested in watching a television show dealing with plastic surgery. Not because I am opposed to the ludicrous extremes to which (primarily) women go in this country to attain an idealized notion of beauty, but because I do not like to watch surgery being performed. Specifically I do not like the cutting part. In high school they showed us a film in health class to dissuade us from smoking.

If you're talking about the first episode sex scene, when they end up being caught by Kimber, it's "Last Train to Whenever" by Telepopmusik, followed by "Inside and Out" by Feist (when Kimber joins them in bed)
