"Tell me what you don't like about yourself."
"a disturbingly perfect drama"

Nip/Tuck is a television show, airing on the FX network, about the lives of two Miami plastic surgeons, as their lives threaten to fall apart under the stress of greed, envy, lust and crime.

Nip/Tuck follows the lives of two Miami plastic surgeons, Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon). The show, while not strictly a soap opera, has some story arcs. In its debut season, Nip/Tuck was the highest-rated new series on American basic cable, and the highest rated basic cable series of all for the 18-49 and 25-54 age demographics. The fourth season of the series premiered on September 5, 2006 on FX Networks. The fifth season will have its premiere in Fall 2007.

The Carver
In the fictitious world of Nip/Tuck, the Carver is a masked psychopath who disfigures, rapes and/or kills his victims.
Before raping his victims, and/or carving their cheeks down to the lip to resemble a smile, the Carver tells his victims,
"Beauty is a curse on the world, It keeps us from seeing who the real monsters are."

The Parents Television Council has criticized the show for what they perceive to be an irresponsible or insensitive approach to these issues, especially when children might be watching. The show is, however, shown at a late hour with multiple 'Viewer Discretion Advised' warnings. A particular scene involving a foursome pushed them into starting a campaign to get the show taken off the air by writing to the sponsors of the show and threatening to boycott their products. Another scene the PTC criticized depicted a funeral home worker removing and assembling body parts from dead women, including his sister's head, then sewing them together to make "the ideal woman". The PTC president described it in a decency hearing as "incestuous necrophilia." So far, numerous companies have dropped their sponsorship of the show, although Sony, arguably the biggest sponsor, continues to support it.


I hope there are some people who loves the show like I do here. :wve:

I have the first three seasons on DVD, and I watch it all the time. I haven’t seen anything of season four yet though, but they recently stop filming it in December.
