    The central duo's bond, of course, has been the program's one constant, and even with its periodic missteps and excesses, it's worth hanging around to see where series creator Ryan Murphy and company choose to leave them.
  2. Nip/Tuck may sag a little here and there, but for what it is - a goof on medical shows--its scalpel still has an edge.

    The result is often funny, ridiculous, bathetic and silly. Plus, watchable. Against all odds, this might actually be a good closing season.

    For fans, it's a bloody good start. For everyone else, there's always "CSI: New York" -- where you get the blood without the guts.
  5. Where once Nip/Tuck crackled, it now whines and sighs; where once it shocked, it now plays nice.
  6. It's nice to see that after five seasons, Nip/Tuck's wit is still scalpel sharp.

    As always, Nip/Tuck is inventive and unpredictable.

    Sadly, the second episode of "Nip/Tuck" has none of the laughs and excitement of the first, but the eerie, uncomfortable, dumb-teenager darkness of the previous five seasons is back.

    What's great about this show is that every week it gets eaten by the same shark it tries to jump over, thankfully. I don't think What's great about this show is that every week it gets eaten by the same shark it tries to jump over, thankfully. I don't think there's any crazy storyline that couldn't be reasonably survived by the writers/producers/cast of this highly entertaining, and underrated vessel for their obnoxious reality.

    Sometimes really stupid, but you keep coming back to see how things turn out. How can 2 MDs be so dense.

    It is absolutely rididculous- and with very often disturbing scenes!
