Nip/Tuck Well I certainly learned a lesson last week. I will no longer write about a show without also watching scenes for the next week. Last week I neglected to watch the coming attractions, which revealed that Kimber did not bail on Christian she was kidnapped by the Carver! Oh, Dave. So if any of you went back to check, you saw that I updated that portion (thanks to my editor's help). OK that said, how disturbing was tonight's episode? Not disturbing when it comes to the acting and the writing that was first-rate, as usual. I'm talking about the subject matter. Christian the sadist and new patient "Flabby Abby" (an intensely effective Rebecca Metz

) the masochist. Never thought I'd see a show where a lead character pathetically asks a not-so-pretty gal to put a bag over her face so he could have sex with her. But I can't condemn this since I know this stuff actually happens. How about Abby's line "Just because I am ugly doesn't mean that I'm attracted to ugly"? We all know that's true, no matter how attractive we are. Brilliant usage of Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls" during the surgery, by the way. Then there was the disturbing Quentin story line having sex with the army guy (played by Bryce Johnson from Popular), then getting intimate with Julia, denying having sex with the army guy even though Sean witnessed it, outing the army guy, leaving McNamara/Troy and then becoming the resident surgeon at De La Mer. Creep with a capital C. And please may it not be Matt who caused those hate crimes too predictable. But most of all, poor Kimber. Carved and held captive by the Carver, forced to write that note to Christian. I bet Christian seeing Kimber next week is just him hallucinating we shall see. Does next week's "special event" plane crash not look like ER two weeks ago?
