hilarious
10 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

I won't say the typical things about this show such as "it's revolting!" and "how horrible" and "society is awful" and all those things that everyone wants to say because everybody's already said those things. This show is awful on several levels and I don't say that with my nose turned up in the air saying how wonderful I am b/c I'm against plastic surgery. Some people will truly never change unless something physical is changed and only then will they allow themselves to be happy. Maybe that's because of society but it doesn't change the fact that sometimes plastic surgery is a good thing for some people. This show pulls those type of people on and makes them feel better (a change that will probably stay). But the way it is presented and what the moronic doctors say makes it awful and a total mind f***. You are nothing unless you inject your a** into your lips! They don't just adjust and lift to bring out the beauty of the girl, they reconstruct some of these girls and make them look like cats (best example is the girl who won the first season - looks nothing like herself and looks like a plastic mold). No one in their right mind would have anything against making a persons teeth white and straight so I don't know why they would have a problem making the bridge of a nose a little skinnier, but my god! They actually make the effort to make every girl look the same! It's hilarious.

Case in point: the story of a woman who decided to get skinny, she did and was left with HUGE over flow of skin that looked pretty awful really (and I think taking away skin like that is a healthy sugery - giving you rewards for getting healthy) but just as she lost all the weight, she tragically lost her husband. The theripist (OF ALL PEOPLE!!!) says "how ironic that she is left with all that skin." (!!!!!!!!!!WHAT!!!!!!!!) The woman lost her husband after she lost weight for him - that's irony. Later in the show, one doctor tells her to her face how difficult the surgery will be for him, and that he's never had to do so much work. Not only a personal display of great tact but way to send a message to anyone that thought the lady looked pretty (such as I did, she really did) about how awful they must look. I just hope little teenage girls are more intelligent than we all give them credit for when we are getting mad at this show. It could all also fit into an easy 30 minute show but they have the contestants say things about what is wrong with them and they replay it after every commercial. You see everything but the reveal just at least twice. It's a piece of crap show.
