I really wanted to smack the kid in this episode...
27 October 2008 | by (Luoyang, China) – See all my reviews

Interesting enough episode, although the ending really blew it for me. I have been losing taste very, very quickly for anything involving Matt's sex life. After the self-circumcision I was ready for that whole thing to just be put to rest for good, but I guess the show is about surgical bodily mutilation so such a request sounds a little ridiculous. I liked the way the whole story about his first sexual experience was handled, it was a great bit of fear when he thought he might have an STD, and hopefully the teenagers in the audience will take note. I am a pretty liberal and tolerant person, but the transsexual thing was pretty distasteful to me. I was surprised that I was having a hard time eating while I was watching the show, but I guess Nip/Tuck isn't the best show to be watching dinner in front of, you know?

But the thing that really drove me nuts was at the end when Christian had bought the Lamborghini and tossed the keys to Matt so he could drive. Matt pauses for a second and then tosses the keys back, saying You know what, I'm not you, uncle Christian. I want a girl to like me for who I am, not for the car I drive.

Holy crap I wanted to punch him.

I've already contacted all of my friends and family to tell them that if I ever turn down a chance to drive a $250,000 car but pass it up because I want to be liked for who I AM that could they please beat me about the head and shoulders with a large blunt object. I'm not picky. A toaster or an external hard drive or maybe one of those Kryptonite U-locks or even a garden hose would suffice. But it would be of the utmost importance that I learn a very, very valuable lesson.

I already know enough not to try to circumcise myself though, so any beatings would not be necessary were I to attempt that. Maybe some kind of psychiatric intervention would be prudent in that situation...
