When Marine Nicolas Brody is hailed as a hero after he returns home from eight years of captivity in Iraq, intelligence officer Carrie Mathison is the only one who suspects that he may have been "turned".
Sean McNamara and Christian Troy are two plastic surgeons running a partnership in Miami, Florida with different issues to life. Sean is a wishy-washy, weak-kneed, family man who distances himself with work to avoid his dysfunctional home life which includes his needy and spiteful wife Julia, his rebellious teenage son Matt and young daughter Annie. The more slick Christian is an arrogant, narcissistic, unethical, ladies man who worships wine, women, and the all mighty dollar, and will do just about anything to get what he wants (lie, cheat, steal, blackmail and seduce)and has no qualms about practically anything.

Joely Richardson left the series in season 4 for to be with her family in England. Although she was listed as part of the main cast in the intro, she only appeared in 18 of the 41 episodes of season 5 and 6. See more »
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.
I'm not going to apologize for that. I'm a surgeon. If I get emotional patients die.
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.

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 »
no wonder the networks are having such a tough time
Competing with cable is a tough job for the big networks with shows like Nip/Tuck around. While the networks are busy giving us "The Bachelor," F/X is giving us a beautifully written, gorgeously acted show about plastic surgeons. I have to say that this season is even better than last, definitely a more intense experience for me, anyway. The Siamese twins episode, the stigmata episode, the custody episode, the blind woman episode were all outstanding. You never know what you're going to get from this show - sexually explicit talk, soft porn, gut-wrenching drama, humor - it keeps you on your toes. As a side note, the episode about the blind woman getting the eye implants was remarkable for its accuracy. I have experience in the prosthetics field and it was right on, 100%. Very interesting to watch. I really love this show, in case no one noticed.
Some trivia - one of the producers is Lyn Greene, who starred in her own series in the '70s, "On Our Own" and later played the young Dorothy on "The Golden Girls" in several episodes. Bravo, Ms. Greene, you are a multitalented and remarkable woman.
