Some surgery scenes had to be edited because they were just too gory. Real plastic surgeons have remarked that plastic surgery isn't as gory as this series makes it appear, but that's just for show purposes. See more »
FYI, I met some movie producers who think I'm the bomb. They can't wait to get into the Kimber Henry business.

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 »
This is one of the biggest surprises of my 50+ years of television viewing. I love this show! The characters are complex; the story lines are interesting and entertaining. I think the show is so well done. The special effects to depict the surgeries looks so real. I didn't watch the first season because I thought it would be superficial but it is so much more than that. I rented the first season on DVD to get caught up from the beginning of the series. It is intoxicating at times; funny, diverse, with the plots intertwining. Walsh's character is mostly good; McMahon's character is more the bad boy but they show the opposite sides in both making you love both for the all their attributes and flaws. We love flawed heroes. Thank you FX for some of the best dramas on television.
I want everyone who has access to FX to watch and give it a chance with an open mind.
