Product Description

Nip/Tuck: Season 5 Part 1 (DVD)

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.!

With its fifth season, Nip/Tuck slips the surly bonds of drama and enters a state of quasi-camp, which proves eminently appropriate for its mix of lurid melodrama and operating room theatrics. Four seasons of murder, adultery, serial killer hijinks and other over-the-top plot points precipitated the tone shift, which was cemented by the relocation of Troy/McNamara and staff to sunny Los Angeles; things turn immediately off-kilter as both docs become consultants to a prime-time sudser called Hearts 'n' Scalples. The boys go off their own respective deep ends as well, with Sean (Dylan Walsh) blossoming into a TV star and indulging in an affair with the teenage daughter of Julia's (Joely Richardson) lover (Portia de Rossi), and Christian (Julian McMahon) hitting new lows at every turn, including a layout for Playgirl and a turn as an escort. Along the way, there are encounters with a doctor (George Coe) who believes he's carrying an extraterrestrial implant; dueling Marilyn Monroe impersonators, a society matron who wishes to resemble a cat, and the return of Rosie O'Donnell's Dawn Budge, who endures a mauling by eagle while hang-gliding, assault by a sex maniac with a particular fetish, and vehicular assault by a lesbian biker. That's just the first 14 episodes.

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

what A LOT of people dont seem to realize is that there were supposed to be 22 episodes this season, making it the longest nip/tuck season yet. however, only 14 were aired. (most likely due to the wrighters strike we're all so familiar with) so for those that feel there was no closure, you're right, there wasnt any, because that was never supposed to be the close, they just aired the ones they had finished.

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 fifth season of Nip/Tuck finds Sean (Dylan Walsh) and Christian (Julian McMahon) setting up their practice in the most synthetic town on the planet: Hollywood. It takes a while for things to take off, which they do when Sean and Christian end up stumbling into playing parts on a TV medical drama, and contending with its egotistic star (Midnight Meat Train's Bradley Cooper) while Sean romances its female lead (Paula Marshall). There's some inventive twists that are abound, including the downward spiral that Matt (John Hensley) and Kimber (Kelly Carlson) are on, and Julia's (Joely Richardson) surprising new realationship. There's pivotal guest star roles from Portia de Rossi, John Schneider, and sexy AnnaLynne McCord, and Nip/Tuck still manages to be entertaining five seasons in, even though this season just simply isn't as good as previous seasons of the series. Still, there's a cliffhanger ending that will have you salivating for more to come, and here's hoping that Nip/Tuck will continue to deliver the goods.

I was excited and all set to purchase this dvd as I own the other seasons until I realized that it is not the complete season. Why would anyone in their right mind pay this astronomical amount (the same I paid for the entire season sets I got when they were released), only to have to pony up more money when the remaining episodes are released. While I love Nip/Tuck, I will not spend my hard earned money on a set that is not a complete season release. I refused to do so when 30 Rock did this, and I will not do so now. I say wait until the complete season is released and consider making the purchase at that time.

I LOVED this series. Great, great show. I think I liked the Character of Christian Troy because when I was single I was as prolific, but slightly less of an a-hole. Loved, loved , loved, Kimber....wow. Great music, and while shot in Long beach posing as Miami, what a wonderfully twisted show.

I even had a name plate of Christian Troy made for a Halloween Costume and wore it with scrubs. There was a meet and greet with the stars at Hollywood and Highland. Fun.

First, let me say that in all honesty, I honestly thought that this season of "Nip/Tuck" was going to fail, simply because Seasons 3 & 4 were huge disappointments. I was shocked at the new level that the writers/producers of this show has taken it to and I enjoyed every bit of it.

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.

I've loved this show from its beginnings but when I went to college I fell off from watching regularly. I'm glad I was able to get them on DVD for a great price during the black Friday sales. If you like drama, this is a great way to go!
