Did You Know?


Joely Richardson left the series in season four to be with her family in England. Although she was listed as part of the main cast in the introduction, she only appeared in eighteen of the forty-one episodes of seasons five and six. See more »


Julia McNamara: Do you know how long it has been since I have heard you laugh? Since I have even seen you be emotional about anything? Jesus, Sean, I haven't seen you cry since Matt was born.
Sean McNamara: I'm not going to apologize for that. I'm a surgeon. If I get emotional patients die.
Julia McNamara: I'm not one of your patients, Sean! I'm your wife! And on your watch, a death has occurred, the death of you and me. This marriage doesn't even have a pulse anymore.

Crazy Credits

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 »

The show is headed in the wrong direction.
9 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I have been watching Nip Tuck, since the first show. We looked forward to it, and it was our date night with a bottle of wine.

The first series were great. The series with The Carver were not great and just too weird & sick. Also, the series with the Life Coach, who slept with her son, was too Sick-could have left out her sleeping with son-did nothing for the show.

The current series, fall 2006, is very disappointing. There are too many SICK sex incidents -- daughter & mom, lady & dog, daughter with mom's husband, etc.

The events with the son, Kimber& Science religion are too dumb & weird - better episodes were when the son was dating lesbian in high school.

Other than the wild sex scenes, we enjoy the plastic surgery scenes.

My husband and I will stop watching, if the show precedes to get sicker. In fact, we use to always watch the rerun on Sunday, even after seeing on Tuesday; this Sunday, we had no desire to watch rerun of the daughter having sex with Mom's husband.

Is this show promoting incest and animal abuse?

Why can't NipTuck go back to Christian Troy just having fun wild sex? Another good episode was when both guys were having wild sex with the prostitute, and dreaming it was Julia.

Please don't make this show sick. Sex & City was a great show - had real life sex situations, etc. Nip Tuck WAS a great show.
