Nip/Tuck: Season 5, Part 1
L.A. City of Angels. Tinseltown. La-La Land. The place thats made a bundle selling glamour, illusion and dreams the perfect place for the newly relocated plastic-surgery practice of McNamara/Troy. Its also the place for Lights! Camera! Scalpels! as Sean and Christian go from consulting on a TV drama about plastic surgery to being on-camera players (and rivals for stardom). Its the place for wavering Kimber to become porn again, for strung-out Matt to try to go straight, for Julia and Christian to rekindle a flame, for all the personal and professional entanglements that are McNamara/Troy. And its the place for skilled surgical procedures some silly, some heartrendingly serious. Welcome to L.A.!

what A LOT of people dont seem to realize...May 16, 2008
By L. Cotton
what A LOT of people dont seem to realize is that there were supposed to be 22 episodes this season, making it the longest nip/tuck season yet. however, only 14 were aired. (most likely due to the wrighters strike we're all so familiar with) so for those that feel there was no closure, you're right, there wasnt any, because that was never supposed to be the close, they just aired the ones they had finished.
while i agree, the plots have gotten more and more shocking, and less about the surgery and the subtlties of the charecter relationships, i have to keep my fingers crossed that by the end of the season (the missing episodes rumored to be airing early this fall, possibly late summer) things will turn around a bit and get more involved, and less trashy.
never the less, i'm gonna buy it, i plan to support my favorite show, leave my input, and hope it gets back to some taste.
love the show, love ya all, feel free to contact me

Hollywood BabylonOct 11, 2008
By N. Durham
The fifth season of Nip/Tuck finds Sean (Dylan Walsh) and Christian (Julian McMahon) setting up their practice in the most synthetic town on the planet: Hollywood. It takes a while for things to take off, which they do when Sean and Christian end up stumbling into playing parts on a TV medical drama, and contending with its egotistic star (Midnight Meat Train's Bradley Cooper) while Sean romances its female lead (Paula Marshall). There's some inventive twists that are abound, including the downward spiral that Matt (John Hensley) and Kimber (Kelly Carlson) are on, and Julia's (Joely Richardson) surprising new realationship. There's pivotal guest star roles from Portia de Rossi, John Schneider, and sexy AnnaLynne McCord, and Nip/Tuck still manages to be entertaining five seasons in, even though this season just simply isn't as good as previous seasons of the series. Still, there's a cliffhanger ending that will have you salivating for more to come, and here's hoping that Nip/Tuck will continue to deliver the goods.

Another Attempt to Cheat the Consumer out of MoneyDec 08, 2008
By K. P. Walters
I was excited and all set to purchase this dvd as I own the other seasons until I realized that it is not the complete season. Why would anyone in their right mind pay this astronomical amount (the same I paid for the entire season sets I got when they were released), only to have to pony up more money when the remaining episodes are released. While I love Nip/Tuck, I will not spend my hard earned money on a set that is not a complete season release. I refused to do so when 30 Rock did this, and I will not do so now. I say wait until the complete season is released and consider making the purchase at that time.

Nip/Tuck - Season Five (The Saga Continues)May 24, 2008
"writer and fitness guru"
First, let me say that in all honesty, I honestly thought that this season of "Nip/Tuck" was going to fail, simply because Seasons 3 & 4 were huge disappointments. I was shocked at the new level that the writers/producers of this show has taken it to and I enjoyed every bit of it.
The doctors and their families, friends and colleagues all move to California, where they not only continue their practices, but they discover a large multiple of ups and downs. I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't seen this season, but I'll just add that this season covers a "new" sexual phenomenon in white suburbia (which is called "Cuckoldry"), reality TV, female stalkers, Julia exploring her sexuality, characters Matt & Julia hitting rock bottom, Kimber going back into her old ways by becoming a porn starlet and an 18-year-old temptress named "Eden" causing friction in Sean and Julia's life. In this season, things go downhill for just about everyone and just when you think things are going well for the characters in this story, things get uglier and uglier! In this season, there are special guest appearances by porn-star Lexington Steele, Boris Kodjoe, "New York" (from the "Flavor of Love" show), Tia Carrere, Rosie O'Donnell, etc...
While Season Two was my most personal favorite season for "Nip/Tuck", this season is equivalent to that particular season, because Season Five was so damn entertaining, just like Season Two and I loved it! I just hope that Season Six (the final season, maybe?) will be as great as this one.

Four Seasons might have been enoughJul 27, 2010
The show took a drastic turn for the worse in Season 5 part 1. We see Dr. Sean going for an 18 year old, Matt continues to fall madly in love with anyone that says "hello" to him. Julie develops a taste for females. It just goes too far over the top.
