L.A. City of Angels. Tinseltown. La-La Land. The place thats made a bundle selling glamour, illusion and dreams the perfect place for the newly relocated plastic-surgery practice of McNamara/Troy. Its also the place for Lights! Camera! Scalpels! as Sean and Christian go from consulting on a TV drama about plastic surgery to being on-camera players (and rivals for stardom). Its the place for wavering Kimber to become porn again, for strung-out Matt to try to go straight, for Julia and Christian to rekindle a flame, for all the personal and professional entanglements that are McNamara/Troy. And its the place for skilled surgical procedures some silly, some heartrendingly serious. Welcome to L.A.!]]>
Despite the dips into Dynasty territory, Nip/Tuck remains anchored by its solid cast, with both McMahon and Walsh turning in straight-faced and sincere performances; they're well-abetted by Richardson (returning to the show after her departure in Season 4) and a solid guest cast, including de Rossi, Sharon Gless as Sean's agent, and John Schneider as an oily porn producer. They and other guests make up for the show's shortcomings, which unfortunately mount as the season progresses. One wonders whither Nip/Tuck from here, but not without a little wince. Extras are relegated to a brief introduction to the new season, a smattering of deleted scenes on Disc Three, and the by-now standard gag reel. --Paul Gaita

while i agree, the plots have gotten more and more shocking, and less about the surgery and the subtlties of the charecter relationships, i have to keep my fingers crossed that by the end of the season (the missing episodes rumored to be airing early this fall, possibly late summer) things will turn around a bit and get more involved, and less trashy.
never the less, i'm gonna buy it, i plan to support my favorite show, leave my input, and hope it gets back to some taste.
love the show, love ya all, feel free to contact me
The doctors and their families, friends and colleagues all move to California, where they not only continue their practices, but they discover a large multiple of ups and downs. I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't seen this season, but I'll just add that this season covers a "new" sexual phenomenon in white suburbia (which is called "Cuckoldry"), reality TV, female stalkers, Julia exploring her sexuality, characters Matt & Julia hitting rock bottom, Kimber going back into her old ways by becoming a porn starlet and an 18-year-old temptress named "Eden" causing friction in Sean and Julia's life. In this season, things go downhill for just about everyone and just when you think things are going well for the characters in this story, things get uglier and uglier! In this season, there are special guest appearances by porn-star Lexington Steele, Boris Kodjoe, "New York" (from the "Flavor of Love" show), Tia Carrere, Rosie O'Donnell, etc...
While Season Two was my most personal favorite season for "Nip/Tuck", this season is equivalent to that particular season, because Season Five was so damn entertaining, just like Season Two and I loved it! I just hope that Season Six (the final season, maybe?) will be as great as this one.
Disappointing that we are only going to get 8 episodes in Jan 09 then have to wait till Jan 2010 for next season, and Jan 2011 for final season...
Extremely bizarre of course, and even slightly depressing at times. But why did I keep watching? I guess because of that bizarre edge, you never really know what the heck is coming around the corner. One thing I will say is that all the sex scenes were distracting to me. They seemed contrived.
Julia has a life transformation (I won't spoil it for you) that I found extraordinarily silly~but that's just me. Christian seems to be sinking into the gutter deeper and deeper. Sean's temper becomes a major focus. And Matt and Kimber are as delightfully dysfunctional as ever. I give this season four stars.

Did anyone notice that the Amazon dvd cover says "Season Five Part One"? I guess this means the show in January will be considered "Season Five Part Two".
