Product Description

Sex. Seduction. Liposuction. Find them all in the fearless Nip/Tuck, the award-winning series that's the scalpel's edge of entertainment...and the spark for debate about what cosmetic surgery can or cannot bring to a patient's life. Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon play plastic surgeons/best friends whose glamorous South Beach practice is a revolving door for Season 4's hot-button issues (including a terrifying story arc about an organ-harvest ring) and human foibles (a ventriloquist wants to look like his dummy). Guest stars include Jacqueline Bissett, Larry Hagman, Alanis Morissette, Mo'Nique, Rosie O'Donnell, Brooke Shields and more. Thrills, surprises, shocks, stars abound in this 5-Disc Set. And all it takes is a little Nip/Tuck.

Fans seem of two minds in regard to the Emmy-winning medical drama Nip/Tuck's fourth season, which arrives on DVD in a five-disc set. On one hand, much of the negative press seems to center around the 2006 season's more outlandish storylines, which seem to hew closer to the controversial "Carver" arc than the first season's blend of shock and substance; the curious highlights include an episode set some decades in the future ("Conor McNamara, 2026"), Jacqueline Bisset's madame-turned-organ thief, and Catherine Deneuve as a wealthy Miami mistress who wants her affair's ashes inserted into her silicone breasts ("Diana Lubey"). But on the other, the arrival of Julia (Joely Richardson) and Sean's (Dylan Walsh) baby Conor, and the trauma that surrounds it, the violent conclusion of the Escobar Gallardo storyline, and the addition (and return) of such memorable guests as Peter Dinklage, Larry Hagman, Brooke Shields, and Rosie O'Donnell, help to keep the show's fascinating trademark blend of sudsy shenanigans and keen psychological drama intact. Whether one loves or hates the four season of Nip/Tuck, there's no denying that there's still more offbeat, disturbing and engrossing action at the offices of McNamara-Troy than most other television series. The Fourth Season DVD set includes all fifteen episodes from the season, as well as deleted scenes from several episodes, a gag reel centered around Julian McMahon, and short but intriguing featurettes devoted to the real surgical procedures shown on the program and the exceptional guest cast. All are light on information (save the surgery extra) and strong on flash and talking heads, but fans should find them an agreeable chaser after watching the full season. --Paul Gaita

Edited 3/15/09 - WARNING - SPOILER ALERT

This season, we discover that Julia's baby is Sean's, and that it has Ectrodactyly (lobster claw syndrome). Surgeries include Sean doing a procedure on a Treacher/Collins syndrome patient (severe facial deformity), Dawn Budge is "earjacked" (her ear sliced off by an earring thief) a burn reconstruction on Escobar (he's back!), and a breast reconstruction on a woman (Escobar's wife) who's had her breasts brutally cut off.

Guest stars include Brooke shields as Faith Wolper (Christian's therapist), Larry Hagman and Sanaa Lathan as Burt and Michelle Landau, Peter Dinklage as Marlowe Sawyer, Rosie O'Donnell as Dawn Budge, Jacqueline Bisset as James LeBeau, Alanis Morissette as Poppy (Liz's girlfriend), plus the stellar, fantastic, and sexy Catherine Deneuve as Diana Lubey.

Some of the plotlines this season include Liz (the fantastic Roma Maffia) getting a kidney stolen (a la urban legend), the dog and the peanut butter, Matt joins Scientology, Sean has an affair with a potential nanny, Christian gets involved with Michelle, James (a woman) LeBeau has a dangerous hold over Michelle - running an organ theft ring, Christian battles with his own sexuality after his therapist hints that he might be gay, Liz's remaining kidney fails and she has to go on dialysis, Kimber seduces Matt to revenge Christian, Julia sleeps with Marlowe, Merrill Bobbitt returns, Wilber (Christian's "son") returns.

My favorite is the return of Escobar (Robert LaSardo). Escobar is so bad he's good, and he makes for a few great episodes. This time he's not just masking as Sean's conscience, he's really back.

You know a season is completely nuts when one of the most sane plot points is about an Organ Harvesting Ring!! This show is SO deliriously over the top...I just had a blast. Watching it, my wife and I often found ourselves just looking at each other and shaking our heads in disbelief. Can you imagine that if people in "real life" had to endure what Sean, Christian and company had to endure, they'd have long since died of strokes or heart attacks or just plain stress!

The show makes the machinations in everything from DALLAS to DYNASTY to SIX FEET UNDER look like perfectly normal, even boring occurences.

I love this show because it not only doesn't fear being outrageous, it THRIVES on it. Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon have the perfect blend of well-rooted and skillful acting, with just a dash of over-the-top over-acting. Not for one minute is the show "believable," but it draws us in nonetheless, thanks in large part to the skill of the two main actors. They are a joy to watch, both as characters and performers. I particulary like Christian Troy. Never more than in this season have we seen his blend of totally self-serving boorishness (and cruelty) peppered with true, honest feelings. He has a new love in this season, and theirs is a complicated relationship that you root for...even though you know it probably won't go well.

Meanwhile, Sean McNamara and his wife Julie are expecting a child, whom they discover has a very rare birth defect, and they must grapple with the preparations for that, and then the aftermath of the birth. This is actually fairly touching and when little Connor arrives, we truly feel for a darling little baby saddled with such a horrible defect.

Rated this a 5 for the show, but the actual discs had issued. I believe they were not manufactured correctly. There were no visible scratches or marks on the discs, they just wouldn't play properly in a PS3, blu-ray player, Macbook, or a PC.

Season 4 heads in an entirely different direction than I had anticipated though you can't really anticipate anything that includes the use of Ryan Murphy's brilliance. Although, I do wish this season would have focused more on surgeries than the drama. Some of the moments in there were too graphic for my taste,especially episode 13 reefer.
Regardless, it was still a well crafted season

I recently ordered season 4 of Nip Tuck from this seller and it just arrived yesterday. As I sat down to watch the season it would barely play and would skip horribly the whole way through. At first I thought it was just a problem with the disc until I realized that 2 of the others did the exact same thing. 3 out of the 5 discs of the season are completely useless to me and I'm very unhappy about this purchase.

This show is amazing. You really fall in love with the characters and all of their hardships. The best thing is Christian and Sean's relationship. They are always there for each other though at times it might not seem that way.

I saw Seasons 1-3 on DVD and then Season 5 on TV. After seeing Season 5, I was not going to buy this thinking it may be somewhere between Seasons 3 and 5 in quality, but I decided to get it when it was on-sale. To my surprise, it was better than Season 3 and much better than 5, but not quite as good as Seasons 1 and 2 (IMHO Season 2 is the best). The good: (1) a great examination of Christian and Sean's relationship (as a result of Christian's therapy sessions), (2) a large number of great guest stars, (3) excellent resolution at the end of the season of many storylines, (4) the return of many characters from the past seasons, (5) still compelling drama and the occasional humor, ; The bad: (1) Sean/Julia - it is very tedious having a couple break up/cheat/get back-together/cheat/break-up....
