Synopsis


The first season of F/X's Nip/Tuck finds doctors Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) enjoying success at McNamara-Troy, the plastic surgery practice they built after having gone through medical school and much of their young adult lives together. While Christian is perfectly happy making tremendous amounts of money and using his status to bed all the beautiful women Florida has to offer, Sean is desperate to take on pro bono cases. Though this eventually comes to fruition, the limitations in his personal life continue -- his relationship with his son, Matt (John Hensley), is strained, while his marriage to Julia (Joely Richardson) is mediocre at best; both he and Julia have seriously contemplated extramarital affairs. This season also marks the entrance of a ruthless Columbian drug lord, who at one point was blackmailing Sean and Christian into helping him transplant drugs into the U.S. via heroin-filled breast implants. Though he eventually is brought to justice, it makes life even more difficult for the surgeons. Luckily, the constant stream of patients into McNamara-Troy all have something to offer -- their outside flaws, whether real or merely a result of societal pressure, help Sean and Christian examine their own internal imperfections. ~ Tracie Cooper

    Looking back, it's almost quaint to think how scandalous Nip/Tuck was when it premiered nearly a decade ago. The series took its first bow in July 2003 and, almost immediately, invited controversy for its unflinching depictions of plastic surgery and some of the excesses of its fast-living characters. Created by Ryan Murphy (best known these days for breathing life into the perpetually perky teens of "Glee"), Nip/Tuck follows the lives of plastic surgeons Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon), whose initially Miami-based practice plays host to all manner of, shall we say, vivid clients. A lurid soap opera with surprising intelligence, not to mention a startling empathy for its deeply flawed characters, the multiple Emmy nominee Nip/Tuck is high-minded storytelling masquerading as cable-ready sleaze. Much as in his current series, "Glee," Murphy and his stable of creative collaborators have a tendency to hammer home points a little too frequently; the themes of homosexuality and acceptance of all people, regardless of their orientation or appearance, pulse beneath nearly every episode here. Nevertheless, Nip/Tuck is, most importantly, compulsively watchable, not only for the outrageous and gore-slicked surgery scenes (and, yes, the hot-'n'-heavy sexacapades), but also for the superb ensemble cast's work through six uneven seasons. What begins so strongly, arguably peaking in the third, riveting season, falters mightily as the creative staff attempts to transplant doctors McNamara and Troy cross-country, as well finding a satisfactory way to bring everything to a conclusion. It's messy -- both doctors, while (mostly) the model of professionalism at the office, have extraordinarily complicated domestic lives -- and, often, broaches subject matter (gender reassignment surgery, for example) that many television series, even in 2011, shy away from. It's a credit to FX, which broadcast all six seasons of the show, that Nip/Tuck was allowed to paint a frank, frequently compelling portrait of adults behaving badly. In that respect, I found myself through these 100 episodes recalling another, much-adored series that featured a squirm-inducing profession and profoundly dysfunctional characters: Alan Ball's "Six Feet Under." But while "Six Feet Under" portrays its calamities and couplings in more mundane, conventional ways (that's meant as a compliment), Nip/Tuck layers on the decadence, cloaking its hollowed-out characters in the flashiest, most luxurious surroundings it can muster. For as much as the show is a running commentary on the horrible things people do to themselves and each other in the name of external beauty, so too is it a sly commentary on the very American past-time of attempting to better our collective selves through the pursuit of superficial, ultimately empty prizes. The boats, the cars, the condos, the smoking hot girlfriends -- all of these, Nip/Tuck, seems to say, are wonderful perks, but making them the sole focus of one's existence makes for a long, lonely, soul-crushing experience. Nip/Tuck: The Complete Series is housed, naturally, in a very stylish silver foil-covered box, which contains all seven season sets (the fifth season is split into two parts). These sets are identical to the previously released versions; each season features a standard DVD case contained by a foil slipcase. Although it's a sizable package, it's very beautifully presented and fittingly luxe for a show so enamored with decadence.

    Great sleek metallic packaging that houses the original separate metallic DVD artwork releases from all the seasons of the show. We started re-watching this show right before Netflix took it away! Excited to finally have all of the episodes available to watch whenever we want (in hard copy)! Looks great in our TV section on our DVD/Bluray/VHS shelves. Love it!

    When this show first aired, it broke boundaries and records for cable programming. The early seasons are top-notch and have plenty of twists and turns to keep viewers engaged. Although it tends to get whackier as the show draws to a close, the characters (and the dramatic situations they find themselves in) still keep you engaged.

    Nip/Tuck is one of my favorite drama series. The characters are well rounded and executed perfectly. The plot feels very lived in! Sometimes bordering on the extreme; Nip/Tuck is a highly stylish and refined drama. You can't go wrong with the pricing of this product either! A must!

    Fantastic series. Great makeup effects, actors and plot line. Never disappointed with any episodes until the last season and the last five episodes. It was like the writers were working for a different series. Except for the ending this was a great show

    Quite graphic surgical scenes, interesting characters. Rather fascinating look at humans obsessed with perfection (on the outside) and trying to cheat the aging process, yet neither is truly obtainable as is demonstrated on a regular basis.

    The picture quality for DVD is not that bad (I think my TV up converts the quality). The packaging of this box set is neat. The show itself is kinda graphic. I think there are small clips of actual surgeries in the shows. Not suitable for children at all

    We have watched it a few times. We will keep watching it every now and then. I like learning new things about the characters and coming up with my own theories.
