Nip / Tuck: Intense, Dramatic and very funny.



First season, second season and now the third season will be released on DVD on August 29th.
What a show!! I got so addicted to it that once I got the First season, and from the first episode I got hooked. It's an eye-popping, surprising and completely compelling series, revolving around the lives of two very successful plastic surgions who live in Miami, Sean McNamara and Christian Troy of McNamara/Troy. Living in a society were looks are everything and perfection is seeked, you find those two partners who have different values and ethics struggle in doing the right thing. Sean who's suffering marital problems and is very serious about his job, often finds himself running around trying to fix Chritian's mistakes, while Christian is busy dating all his female clients and conducting shady business deals for the love of money.

if you're squeamish, this is not the show for you. I know I am! but I'm already addicted so I close my eyes during those real bloody scenes.

I'm so hooked on the theme song as well - A Perfect Lie by The Engine Room.

I've only watched a few episodes, I don't know what I actually feel towards the show. I mean, yes it addresses important issues and all, but the fact that it's very soap-opera-ish puts me off a wee bit..
Besides I'm more into books 8-)

Scarlo,

I'm not a fan of soap-operas at all, and I don't think this show can be categorized as one.

It's a drama series that will eventually end, on the other hand soap-operas stay for centuries :P


Books are always good
