A tuck, a lift, some lipo – they’re elective surgeries. And during a tough economy, the beautiful people elect not to have them. McNamara/Troy turns to a babe-magnet surgeon to help boost biz. Elsewhere in the Nip/Tuck orbit: Matt sets out to earn coin at the beach as a mime (the turn his new career takes may leave you speechless). Kimber laments the decline of her line of sex toys. And that Christian-Liz marriage? Sooo over. So don’t expect the docs to reject any opportunities, no matter how dicey. Create a lifelike mask for a cross-dresser to wear when he’s on the town in drag with his wife? Can do. Help two realtors look more like Barbie and Ken dolls? Sure. Accept the state’s request to lipo a morbidly obese Death Row inmate so he can be executed? The docs will have to think about that one.

she drives me crazy because she is so wishy washy, and weak...yet blames Sean for everything wrong in her life. It is worth the $20 to buy the season. Enjoy - I always do .
There are also many loose ends that we are left with:
It's no surprise that Annie and Wilber end up in therapy, but we don't hear much about it.
Will Conor ever have surgery on his other hand?
What happened to Lipo the dog?
Why did we never see the service for Kimber? Nobody cried? Kimber said she was abused as a child but nothing more is made of this, even when her mother shows up.
Matt finally gets his karmic comeuppance for the season 1 hit and run, but he remains a screw-up.
Will C.T. ever tell the truth about how Gina died?
Otherwise, though, there is some great stuff here. Sean goes into a downward spiral of bad decisions, insomnia, and substance abuse because he wants to get away from M/T and his partner but lacks the courage to do it until much later.
Sean and CT finally realize that they need to separate because their relationship is uneven and damaging, just as Sean finally realizes that he cannot have Julia back in his life for similar reasons.
Liz does some bizarre things in this season.
It's not up to the caliber of seasons 1, 2, and 4, but still pretty good.
I'm actually grateful that this was the final season. Too many shows linger far past the point where they've "jumped the shark." Invariably, a good television show lasts because the audience comes to identify with the characters and the various players almost become friends of the viewing family. Nip/Tuck was no exception. Even though some of the characters made absurd decisions and exhibited despicable behavior through the years, the writers managed to make the viewers care about what these people were going to do next. Like other reviewers, I'm going to miss the denizens of the Nip/Tuck universe.
I'm very grateful this was the last season. Within the first couple of episodes it becomes pretty apparent that some of the actors are tired of the characters they play. Worse than that, it is VERY clear that the writers had run out of ideas. There are fewer ongoing story threads in this season, the main characters are more predictable than ever, and there really aren't any "innovative" or unique surgeries. The "patient of the week" more often than not is there for common or mundane procedures that we've seen repeatedly in past seasons. The writing has also gotten very sloppy. There are some massive plot holes and even though the show has always been a bit over the top, the writing has always been top-notch up until this final season. I'm going to give an example or two of what I'm talking about in the next paragraph. It's a fairly big spoiler so if you have not seen this season yet skip the next paragraph unless you want to know about fairly major moments involving some of the main characters:

Kimber steps off a boat in broad daylight and is gone and presumed dead from that point forward. When Christian gets the news he tells Shaun that she's already been missing for over 12 hours. She had been with Christian the night before and then had gone to Shaun's afterward. She then hooks up with Mario Lopez on his yacht the next day. Christian also tells Shaun that she's been missing since "last night." There is no possible way to fit that all together so that it makes any sense. Also, Matt is released from prison because Shaun and Christian do a favor for the District Attorney's Office. This is very shortly after Matt murders another inmate in the cell with him. Even though he has reasons for doing it, there is no way on earth he wouldn't face any consequences for killing a fellow prisoner that had connections throughout the prison. The inmate even had deals going involving the guards. These are just a couple of examples, but there are literally dozens to choose from.

The final episode of the series ends with a whimper instead of a bang. Another reviewer already stated that regular viewers may be unhappy with some of the ways they wrap up the lives of some of the characters and I have to agree. Someone also mentioned the "couples therapy" episode as one of the best and I agree there as well. I love this series and I don't regret having purchased it. A weak season of Nip/Tuck is still better than most of the shows out there. But the characters deserved better than they got in the last season and the writers could have found any number of better ways to finish things up than they did. Instead they got lazy and it shows.
