    Yeah, another show thread (I just started one on Once Upon a Time :p)

    I know this show ended in, like, 2010, I think... but I was sick all weekend, AND got myself a new iPad mini, and decided to start watching Nip/Tuck on Netflix and well... finished the whole first season.

    I LOVE it (didn't think I would). I thought it was just going to be kind of a sleezy sex show, (and don't get me wrong, there's LOTS of sex :p) but I was very happy to see it had a lot more depth than that, and very well done.

    It's a little interesting - the topics can be very "risky" and that's what I love about it. I don't think I've ever seen a show like it before. But the emotion in the last episode I just watched had me bawling too. This is the closest show I've ever come to since Breaking Bad where I can't stop watching, but it's addicting in another way to me. Yes, it's based on plastic surgeons, but it's not your typical doctor show at all. Like, I love me some Grey's Anatomy but it's really nothing like that at all. It doesn't have that soap-opera-y feel, catch my drift?

    Anyway, if you're not offended easily, appreciate good acting, deep and interesting plots that keep you wanting more, you should check it out. For anyone whose watched it already, don't give anything away! I just started season 2. I did hear it goes downhill at the end, but for now, I'm really really enjoying this amazing show!

    It gets pretty lame in the later seasons but the first one is great, even better is that every surgery is based on a real one. :)

    That's the one thing I hear :( Sucks... I hate when that happens to shows... ah well, I'll enjoy it I guess while it lasts!

    And that's cool! I figured they were - the surgeries are SO realistic!

    I LOVE THIS SHOW. No one else I know does, lol. I did start to lose interest toward the final seasons, but before that I would watch it religiously.

    I'm so glad I'm not alone! I can't believe how obsessed I am, I can't stop watching...

    I'm enjoying it while I can until it gets not as good, lol. I just started season 3 now.

    Yeah, it gets pretty far-fetched/soap-opera near the end, but I so miss that show!

    Mid-way thru season 4 and it's getting a little too weird even for me! I'm gonna keep watching... I guess I knew this was coming... but I LOL'ed so hard when that girl got hit by a bus. First 3 seasons were absolutely amazing though! It's too bad it didn't stay like that.
