Two plastic surgeons - one a dedicated family man and one an unscrupulous playboy - strive to maintain their business whilst having to work their way through numerous hardships ranging from personal relationships to clients with criminal connections. Written by
With this series, Ryan Murphy wanted to explore the superficiality of plastic surgery. He initially avoided setting the show in Los Angeles because he didn't want celebrities to make guest appearances. But the practice eventually did move to LA in Season 4. See more »

I'm serious, I felt violated. The last time I felt like this was back in the early 90s when some girl shoved her finger up my butt with no warning.

The intro sequence is full of still figures, and a marker pen draws lines on the bodies, just as a plastic surgeon does when they're extrapolating the procedure. See more »
It's riveting, it's controversial, it's explicit, and it's steaming up the small screen! Nip/Tuck is certainly not your average cable television show, but its material is presented in such a way that you're hooked after the first couple of episodes. It's real, it's bloody, and it gets under your skin. But personally, I think Nip/Tuck is a real gem - and the acting is totally off the page. Just when you think it can't get any better, Ryan Murphy throws you another delicious twist. I recommend that everyone watch at least one episode. This show offers the opportunity for talents like Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon to shine in truly unique roles. FX definitely scored with this one.
