    Ive been an avid fan of the show since the beginning but ever since they stopped focussing on medical problems and more on soap opera drama ive tuned out. Anyone follow the show? Does it still suck or is it getting progressively better? I saw up to Christian getting breast cancer and Matt dating his sister and them moving back from Hollywood. Have I missed anything ?

    I like to be shocked, but not this shocked. The show is simply too much. You loose your ability to suspend your disbelief.

    I love Kimber's character. thats the only highlight for me. She went from a model, to pornstar, to coke whore, to scientologist in like 4 seasons. I wish they'd focus more on real life medical conditions. thats what made the first 3 seasons so great.

    I missed last season; however, thanks to DVR I was able to get all of this season, but I hadn’t watched any till this week.

    It is out of control over the top, just when you think they can’t get any stranger they push the envelope even further.

    Really didn’t need to see Merio in a leather teddy.

    I’m sure Matt will get gang raped in prison.

    I think this is the last season though, believe they have done it all.

    I am in the camp of thinking that it was once good, but it now sucks....It was once shocking, but it is now just stupid. I had it set to automatically DVR it, but after the first few episodes, I dropped it from my queue...not worth it. I hope it is the last season.... sometimes you just need to know when to quit. I think that was two seasons ago.

    I religiously followed this show since the beginning and to be honest it has slowly been losing its magic. First there was that whole BS with making season 5 a two parter and season 6 started off pretty dully. However, it's getting better (but unfortunately in the soap opera kind of way), ever since Julia's bitch mother made her reappearance. And I'm afraid that most medical TV dramas lose medical perspective over time (just look at Grey's Anatomy), so if you want medicine, you are better off watching Discovery Health. I also heard that they are ending Nip/Tuck after the 7th season or something like that.

    Wait, wait, waitwaitwait... WAIT.

    Who molded whose dick, cast it in steel and then whittled it down to the shape of a knife to castrate WHOM? And then slept with aforementioned stab-ee's mother to get back at the anesthesiologist for murdering WHOOOOOSE long-lost, separated at birth, unknown Siamese twin (sexually)?!?!?!?!?


    Acquaintance of mine is a PA on this show.. and I still don't follow it.

    Nip/Tuck was good for the first 2 seasons imo. After that it's been gradually going downhill, though 3 and 4 were not as lame as the last few ones. I'm still waiting for Matt to rot in jail or get run over by a car. After he almost killed that girl on season 1 for driving and doing drugs, I've been pretty antagonistic towards him. His character never got caught or paid for destroying that girl's life.

    I like Damages now. Absolutely awesome! i hope the new season is as good as the last 2.

    season 1, 2, and 3...simply awesome. Best show on television, it shocked you every week but you cared about the character.

    Worst moment ever..jump the shark moment was the Carver taking off his mask and torturing the docs..stupid stupid, stupid and the show never recovered, the whole Kimber thing, Matt and Kimber getting married, Christian with that one whiny girl married to Larry Hagman, the whole kidney stealing arc...ugh Season 4 basically killed the show. I skipped virtually the entire 5th season after seeing the first few episodes. Thought the show was a parody of itself, they moved to LA, you didnt care about the characters anymore.

    Now I have just started to watch Season 6 after seeing a trailer and I think incredibly the show has moved back to watchable and is showing the elements that made it so great the first 3 years. They need to get back to the central core characters and the interaction between them, thats when the show works the best. Christian and Kimber need to have interaction, thats a big strength of the show. I love Rose McGowan on this show. I am hoping that Famke Janssen returns as Ava. What a trainwreck Matt is. Does not hurt to have Mario Lopez making shirtless appearance every now and then. Some classic lines this year toward Kimber being an old washed up whore..lol

    I think for those who tuned out in the middle seasons, now is a pretty good time to comeback

    While I don't think it's as good as it used to be in terms of the story, I still like watching it for it's 'shock value' and it's a show that I want to see through the end.
