December 13, 2005: Joy Kringle Season 3, Episode 13

Definitely my least favorite episode ever. I was going to write "worst episode ever" until the ending redeemed things a bit for me. I liked that Julia decided not to abort Sean's baby and I liked that the rain washed away the paint Ariel ( Brittany Snow) and Matt covered the nativity scene with. Hey - I am aware that there are hateful people in this world, but I guess I don't like to be reminded of it. I mean, a girl tries bleaching her skin because she finds out that she's 1/16 African-American? A woman who appears as Mrs. Claus at the local mall goes in for lipo and finds out she has a dead fetus inside of her left over from 17 years earlier? And then her Santa-impersonating husband leaves her? What a pleasant holiday-themed episode. At least we found out that Julia never had sex with Quentin and that Matt finally felt guilty about dating a racist. Bring on next week, when we finally find out who the Carver is. FX certainly wants us to search for clues by airing a promo for its MySpace site. Frankly, I don't want any clues - I want to be as shocked as they claim I will be in the final scene of next week's two-hour season finale. Carve away, baby. show less

Premise: A pungent plastic-surgery drama that keeps its humanity amid some graphic operation scenes that aren't for the squeamish. The FX hit smoothly mixes searing drama and mordant humor as it dissects conflicts between two physicians who are partners and best friends: the skirt-chasing, morality-challenged Christian Troy and idealistic Sean McNamara, who's (slightly) more straitlaced. Christian and Sean were based in Miami for the show's first four seasons but moved to L.A. for the last three.
