Ryan Murphy, the creator, writer, and executive producer of "Nip/Tuck" proved he was a total genius with this series. His writing was always entertaining, yet educational and some of the cases depicted were actually based on real-life people. It is no wonder that Ryan would go on to helping create another hit show with FOX's "Glee".
"Nip/Tuck" also had a supporting cast that was as good as the leads and included Kelly Carlson, John Hensley, and Joley Richardson. Some huge Hollywood names were added to the cast as the years progressed in guest-roles including Vanessa Redgrave, Rosie O'Donnell, Mario Lopez, Joan Rivers, and most importantly Sharon Gless who played a psycho, based on Annie Wiles, in the fifth season.
This wonderful box set includes all 100 widescreen episodes of the series, along with all the bonus features that were part of the individual sets. These bonuses are gag reels, deleted scenes, and featurettes. Unfortuantely, no new bonuses are included in this "complete set", but if you haven't bought any "Nip/Tuck" DVD's this is a great place to start: the pricing is very affordable.
Unfortunately, it all went downhill starting Season 3. I dont know if they changed writers or just got blinded by their success and didnt try as hard, but Nip/Tuck made a downhill run starting in Season 3 until the abysmal failure which was the last season: increasingly improbable, far fetched situations that take the notion of suspending disbelief to new heights, bad to no character development (at least not one that is believable), unimaginative writing that is all over the place, everyone acting supremely out of character...I could go on with more examples. There just wasn't much depth in the characters later on and in fact at some point they became a parody of themselves it seems. The writers took the "sudden twists" in plot development that were gripping and enticing in the first two seasons and sprinkled them excessively in every episode to the point where it became almost ridiculous. While in the beginning they used those sparingly to get the desired effect, it was just overdone in later seasons - ultimately causing the show to lose exactly what it tried to accomplish.Read more ›
However, after the first two seasons, everything went downhill. While the first two seasons were filled with bizarre story lines, they were backed by real emotions and motives. From season 3 forward, it turned into more of a very odd plastic surgery soap opera. The crazy story lines seemed to come out of nowhere and felt really forced; like they were begging for attention. The magic was just *lost.* I continued to watch the rest of the series because of my dedication to the show, but it just continuously got worse. The move from Miami to LA didn't help either.
The first two seasons are worth every penny, but I would not recommend buying this entire six series collection. Buy the first two, and then try to rent or Netflix the rest of the seasons, because even if you are able to stand them, you may not have a desire to ever re-watch them again. This show going from the top of its game to the bottom was so depressing. But definitely give the first couple of seasons a shot - you won't reget it!
