December 12, 2006: Gala Gallardo (Season 4 Finale) Season 4, Episode 15

I dont know about you but unlike last years Carver-involved finale I thoroughly enjoyed tonights season finale and its ending with Christian surprisingly joining Sean in LA And I of course will tell you just why I enjoyed itBye-bye Escobar its been nice knowing ya I was overjoyed that Escobar was finally killed and not by Liz For a brief moment I really thought Liz was going to pull the trigger It wouldve been a good way to get revenge on the person responsible for her lack of a kidney But having Escobars wife Gala Idalis DeLeon convince Liz to put the gun down and then taking the gun and shooting Escobar to death made more sense Gala married Escobar to protect her children not because she was madly in love with him More on the fabulous Idalis laterNo evidence The way Christian Sean and Liz disposed of Escobars body was quite appropriate Feeding him to an alligator by wrapping him up and tying a bunch of meat to his entire body just like Christi read more

December 5, 2006: Willy Ward Season 4, Episode 14

Weeks ago when Escobar said goodbye to Sean and told him Were even now and that he wouldnt be back you knew that was too good to be true Tonight after James shot herself to death you knew that would not be the end of Michelles troubles But who knew James would be working for Escobar Nice twist Now Escobar wants Michelle to take over for James Thats not going to fit into Christian and Michelles perfect new family life with little Wilber We all knew as soon as Michelle got into her car that someone was going to be inside but did any of you expect it to be Escobar Yes Robert LaSardos name was in the opening credits but I thought hed be seen in one of Seans dream sequences Well have to wait until next weeks season finale to find out more about Escobars diabolical plans but lets cross our fingers that those plans dont involve one of Wilbers kidneys How about James gifting Wilber tonight with an Operation game board and pointing out the tiny little read more

November 28, 2006: Reefer Season 4, Episode 13

So right away I was thinking Its not even December why are we getting a Christmas episode already Then I remembered that we only have two more episodes left for this season the season finale airs as early as December 12 and December begins this Friday Happy holidays Actually this episode was more like Halloween meets Christmas Id like to officially place Jacqueline Bissets James character in the category of TVs all-time creepiest characters As soon as Sean asked Reefer the homeless man Charles Haid to stay the night at McNamaraTroy after Sean stitched up his face I knew that James would make Reefer her next victim But I didnt expect her to kill him by removing just about all of his organs how refreshing Then I thought about it of course she had to kill him and strategically remove his body from the premises without the knowledge of the FBI surveillance guards If she kept him alive with just an organ or two removed it wouldve been too obvious read more

November 21, 2006: Diana Lubey Season 4, Episode 12

There are two types of NipTuck dream sequences The first is the kind used on most TV shows when a character is asleep and is dreaming or having a nightmare and we get to watch what theyre dreaming about The second is the kind weve been seeing more and more on this show and it usually involves Christian or Sean They either have a daydream or a hallucination theyre just envisioning someone in the room and that certain someone talks to them and sometimes Christian or Sean talk back This happens to Sean quite often because of Escobar which confuses him when its the real thing Tonight it was Christian who had an ongoing daydream involving a collection of his former loves and lusts mostly lusts of course Not surprising since Christian seems to finally be in love and is moving in with his new fiance Michelle so he is literally saying goodbye to his infamous bedroom and figuratively saying goodbye to the women hes bedded in the room I was impress read more

November 14, 2006: Conor McNamara, 2026 Season 4, Episode 11

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

November 7, 2006: Merrill Bobolit Season 4, Episode 10

Let me get this out of the way Merrill Bobolit was always a real pain in the ass to McNamaraTroy Who knew hed come to them because of a wait for it real pain in the ass OK I feel much better And I hope Bobolit felt much better after his anal-retread surgery Ouch When he walked in very slowly as though he was in agony I knew right away his pain had to be due to his being repeatedly raped in prison I didnt expect him to admit that he became Escobars prison wife and that Escobars name had been branded on his butt All joking aside I was looking forward to the return of Bobolit Joey Slotnick and Escobar Robert LaSardo ever since last weeks previews And not just Seans imagination of Escobar the real thingWhat a dastardly plan of Escobars to escape prison by burning his already redesigned face making it look like it was done by his fellow prisoners requesting corrective plastic surgery by none other than his nemeses Christian and Sean and then m read more

October 31, 2006: Liz Cruz Season 4, Episode 9

You knew it was inevitable that Michelle would maneuver Burts death but I didnt think it would be so soon I was really digging Larry Hagman in the role but this doesnt mean he cant come back for some fabulous NipTuck dream sequences When Michelle told Francis the nurse to go home and that shed take care of giving Burt his pills I knew Michelle was lying Poor Burt had to crawl out of bed and attempt the stairs by himself just to try to take those dang pills Too late Burt died a dramatically painful death while his wife Michelle just stared at him But taking Burts kidney saved her dear Christians life Excellent timing with that text message from James to the whorestaff member with the razor blade who was having sex with Christian Abort Since James had 24 hours to give those two mysterious French-speaking Asian-American dudes one more kidney to meet their quota mission accomplished So this means Christian still doesnt know James and Michelle are the orga read more

October 24, 2006: Conor McNamara Season 4, Episode 8

I always know Im going to like an episode of any TV show when they include flashbacks to the childhood of one of the characters especially when we get to learn something new about that character That was the case tonight when we discovered that Sean himself had a facial deformity as a youth and had plastic surgery to correct it No wonder hes been freaking out about Conors situation and about his eventual corrective surgery As Julia told Sean That kid is why youre a plastic surgeon Glad they ended up going forward with the surgery and so far Conor seems to be OK Didnt the promos for tonight with Sean saying to Julia I have something to tell you make you think he was going to come clean about his affair with the tragically departed Monica But now Julia has something to hide from Sean her little kiss with Marlowe Interesting line that Marlowe muttered as he walked out Thats why I have to leave You could tell he was into Julia but I didnt think she re read more

October 17, 2006: Burt Landau Season 4, Episode 7

Its been a while since weve gotten an episode with a happy ending Of course the heartwarming end came after an hour sprinkled with evil so it was quite worth it Let me first say that I was surprised when Christian admitted to Kimber that he was just using her for sex The using Kimber for sex part was not what threw me it was that he was so cruel about it All this time Christians been wooing and romancing Michelle Ive been thinking that Kimber is who hes truly in love with deep down inside and that hed someday get back with her Yes he was drunk and upset with Michelle and thats what brought him to Kimbers place but still Maybe Im just too naive I felt bad for Kimber since she seemed so happy after they had sex but then she pulled a Christian on Matt and used Matt for sex Oh Kimber I dont think Matts going to be happy when he realizes Kimber used him to get back at Christian What will the Scientologists say What would Jesus do KiddingSean s read more

October 10, 2006: Faith Wolper, Ph.D. Season 4, Episode 6

Well Sean certainly got his wish His conscience in the form of Escobar Robert LaSardo told him to kill Monica suggesting he slit her throat or gas her Then poof A bus ran into her and killed her I screamed No f---ing way while my roommate Jason shouted Sooooo Mean Girls Its those shocker scenes I enjoy the most on this show Dylan Walsh did a fantastic job showing how frustrated Sean was getting and Jennifer Hall played the perfect psycho Monica morphed into Alex Forrest from Fatal Attraction when she threatened to tell Julia about their affair and how very Hand That Rocks the Cradle-esque to have Sean walk in on her with baby Conors mouth on her nippleWho knew thered come a day that both Sean and Christian would have women obsessed with them I think I liked Dr Faith Wolper Brooke Shields better when she seemed tougher and not into Christian I was hoping she was just using him for the sex a few weeks ago but no Faiths a diagnosed sexual compulsive and read more

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.
