  1. How fitting, then, that the plastic-surgery drama returns Tuesday for its fifth season by dangerously reinventing itself. Dangerously - and totally successfully.
  2. Nip/Tuck has reclaimed its sense of humor.
  3. Having watched the first two episodes, I'm pleasantly surprised to say: It worked.
  4. After four seasons of showing us cosmetic enhancement from every conceivable angle, Nip/Tuck is ready to take its scalpel to something else: the entertainment industry. I’m not saying that it’s going to work or that Nip/Tuck's longtime fans will appreciate the gesture, but tonight’s episode introduces us to a show-within-a-show that is simply dreadful, and that alone (to this TV critic) is worth the price of admission.
  5. Ten minutes into the season premiere of Nip/Tuck and you have to wonder what those deeply disturbed plastic surgeons were doing wasting four seasons, and all that unexplored sexual tension, in Miami when they so clearly belong in Los Angeles.

    It's still solidly entertaining (if less so) thanks to Walsh and McMahon's dependable character arcs.
  7. The humor provided by the new setting makes the show a bit more palatable than it was last season, but Nip/Tuck is still Nip/Tuck, for both good and ill.

    This season is extremely refreshing and is already far better than last season. It is now funny and has many new ides. Eden is an excellent character that adds to the already drama filled story line. Expand

    Blasphemy! It was amazing. The move will definitely revitalize the show, in part because Julia won't factor as much in the plot. Also, where else are you going to find Oliver Platt, Jennifer Coolidge and Portia di Rossi in one place? Expand

    It saddens me to say, but as a longtime Nip/Tuck viewer, I wasn't really all that excited about the fifth season premiere. Season 4 was Godawful (boring storylines, dreary guest actors, etc). I really enjoyed season 3 but 4 was enough to turn me away. It was really really terrible. But I waded through it anyway, and I am glad I did. While the show is still not near the peak of season 1 or 2, so far it kills the last 2 seasons as it seems Ryan Murphy has remembered what made the show good in the first place. Too bad it took him so long though. Expand

    Was not impressed. As a long time viewer, I think the producers have made a fatal mistake in moving their show to LA. Missed seeing the usual characters in their comfortable settings. I give it a year. Expand
