"Candy Richards"

Back on November 14 2006 when we saw the future lives of the NipTuck characters I mostly praised the episode since it was such a pleasant change of pace What I wasnt thinking at the time was how unfortunate it would become as a viewer that we know exactly what will become of the characters So Julia got shot last week so what We know that she survives since she was in the future episode So Christian and Annie got in a car crash caused by paparazzi this week We knew immediately that theyd be OK since theyre also in that episode And now even after multiple knife stabs in his back by crazy Colleen at the very end even though blood was gushing out of his mouth Sean cant be dead he too was in that damn futuristic episode Of course one can argue that the episode-of-the-future couldve just been someones dream but it wasnt presented that way when it aired so I guess I have the right to bitch about it right Imagine how shocking and suspenseful that stabbing read more

"Dawn Budge II"

As a longtime Rosie fan I was looking forward to her return as lottery winner Dawn Budge as were a lot of you I was skeptical though How could they make it believable for any former McNamaraTroy patients from their Miami years to fly to LA besides having them there just to visit That question was answered quite well after we got to experience seeing Dawn hang gliding in Calgary and being attacked in the mouth by a flying eagle Truly one of the funniest NipTuck visuals ever so funny I had to rewind three times So of course Dawn had to fly or rather get on a plane to LA pronto Who else would she trust to fix her busted mouth besides her pals Christian and Sean How many of you immediately thought of Donald Trump or Elisabeth Hasselbeck after Christian told Dawn Were going to have to sew your mouth shut for two weeksI thought of them but also Barbara Walters when Christian said to Sean during the surgery For several days as Dawn Budge heals the wor read more

"Everett Poe"

Just as I had heard this third episode had more drama and less comedy than the first two episodes As anyone who lives in Los Angeles can attest its not all sunshine and lollipops all the time here in La-La-Land So I was not surprised at the tone throughout most of this hour It didnt mean there werent any zingers every now and then thanks to two of my favorite NipTuck writers Lyn Greene and Richard Levine Richard also directed the episode Ill get to some of those great lines later but let me first get this out of the way That opening scene with Sean and Kate Paula Marshall in the hot tub was really crappy Sorry couldnt resist You learn a new thing every day Kate learned never to take laxatives before getting into a hot tub with her lover At first I thought it was blood didnt you Poor Kate You knew Christian was going to go to town on that with Sean even making loud farting noises But you also knew that it was never going to leave Seans mind S-- read more

November 14, 2006: Conor McNamara, 2026

Well that was a nice change of pace Ive got to ask right away though did any of you get a Back To The Future vibe I kept waiting for them to call each other McFly or to have a senior-ized Lea Thompson walk in or for Christian to ask Sean What are you lookin at butthead Kidding but yet not the makeup reminded me of that classic flick I kept thinking how unrealistic it was for Sean and Julia to not get Conors other hand done Why would Sean so obsessed with his own childhood deformity allow his son to only get one of his hands done Yes Hurricane Lenore caused a delay but I found it hard to believe Sean would give up Thats why I was hoping to see Sean wake up at the end and say I dreamed that we decided not to get Conors other hand fixed and he chose to get it done 20 years from now So thats really my only complaintWhat a treat it was to see young Kelsey Lynn Batelaan get another chance to show some emotion as Annie and not get her usual throwaway read more

September 12, 2006: Blu Mondae

I figured right away that Id like this episode after I heard Hot Child in the City by Nick Gilder a song Ive performed at several karaoke joints here in LA being played at the strip club that Christian was frequenting Oh Christian Brooke Shields suggested he might be gay last week so of course he heads to the strippers We all knew that as soon as Blu Mondae former Playboy playmate Angela Little found out Christian was a plastic surgeon theyd be in bed together and poof cut to them doin the nasty Great line No pro bono for boning a pro Kudos to writers Lyn Greene and Richard Levine That was the other indication that Id like the show tonight since as Ive mentioned before I admire their workAdding to Christians frustration was young stud-muffin Mitchell Skinner effectively played by Thad Luckinbill from The Young and the Restless coming onto him after Christian gave him money just to tide him over Im not gay screamed Christian I tend to bel read more
