Nip/Tuck : Season 6

By Clint Morris

Doesn’t matter the show, by the time a series gets to it’s sixth season it’s, on most occasions, either hanging on by a thread, treading water in Lew of looming all-efforts series finale, or about to jump the shark – by throwing a new, usually unwelcome and frequently irritating character into the mix (be it a baby, a cousin, or, in the case of “Happy Days” a ‘shark’ itself).

Though still a bit of fun, it’s very clear from the Season Six (also it’s final season) episodes of “Nip/Tuck” that the buttons that held this once-exciting and rather-humiliating quilt of suspense and sex have come undone – exposing the rather pale and spotty goods underneath.

Last season, in a last ditch attempt to save their plastic surgery, promiscuous docs Sean McNamara and Christian Troy (Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon, respectively) decided to hire a drool-worthy babe surgeon to entice customers. The economy had really hurt the remodellers, and they were thinking a sexy woman might just lure back through their doors. Together, the threesome ended up working on a bevy of weird, wonderful and wretched clients, including : a death-row inmate who has undergo liposuction so she can be executed, a cross-dresser who wants a lifemask made for him that he can wear out on the town with his wife (so nobody he doesn’t want to recognize him won’t), a couple of realtors that want to look like Ken and Barbie,

This season, things are even crazier… the on-again off-again on-again couple, Christian and Kimber (Kelly Carlson) are now married, but, naturally, are headed for doom; Matt (John Hensley) – who last season wound up in jail -is finally taking responsibility for his past actions; and former “Smallville” and “Dukes of Hazzard” star John Schneider plays Ram Peters, a former porn star who use to, er, work with Kimber.

Look, the season is entertaining enough, and unlike a lot of series, “Nip/Tuck” actually do get an ‘ending’ (it’s a rather fitting goodbye), but the shine that gleamed from the earlier seasons is well and truly gone.
