I’m saddened to admit that I may not have anything to watch on TV now that this season of Nip/Tuck has ended. That’s because the show, despite what its detractors might say (that means you my former co-workers), was arguably the best program on cable. It did win Emmys and Golden Globes after all.
But I digress. The season finale of Nip/Tuck was probably one of the best episodes of the season. I was extremely surprised that Teddy is leading a double life and even more so that Christian isn’t actually dying! It makes sense that the lead character is going to live because you couldn’t replace him. Could you envision the “furniture” doctor from the previous episode playing the “Christian Troy” role?
I found it thoroughly amusing that Kimber actually wanted to marry Christian, again. She’s so pathetic, but equally attractive, and keeps you wondering what she might do next. I suppose she was devastated that Eden stole her husband. I think it’s appropriate that Kimber got her comeuppance for being so cold-hearted.
The best part of the finale of Nip/Tuck would have to be that Christian wanted to cryogenically freeze himself. I couldn’t believe how dillusional he had become. But I’m sure all of that will change next season.
Speaking of next season, will Christian remain married to Liz? I give them six TV months, tops. Better yet, how long will he wait to break the news that he’s not kicking the bucket? I firmly believe that union is solely out of necessity.
The Nip/Tuck season finale was well worth the wait, and staying up past 10pm on a weekday.
