Nip/Tuck: The Complete Series
Hotshot plastic surgeons Dr. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) experience full-blown midlife crises as they confront career, family and romance problems over six seasons of this groundbreaking series. Set first in South Miami Beach and later moving to L.A., these cutting-edge stories range from funny to suspenseful to uncommonly powerful. Surgeries are graphically bold. Sexuality is rampant. Guest stars who go under the knife include Rosie O'Donnell, Joan Rivers, Kathleen Turner and Larry Hagman, among others. From Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy, Nip/Tuck is a prescription for entertainment unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

"My Second Favorite All-Time TV Drama"Aug 13, 2010
By Terry Richard
"Nip/Tuck-The Complete Series" hits DVD store shelves November 2, 2010. For six amazing seasons Julian MacMahon and Dylan Walsh made viewers laugh, cry, and be anxious as we watched week after week the trials and tribulations that Christian and Sean got themselves embroiled in. Never before had television so graphically and intellectually dramatized people's infatuation with looking beautiful by "going under the knife". Christian and Sean were not only intelligent and gorgeous-looking doctors, but were real human beings who sometimes had more problems than their patients.
Ryan Murphy, the creator, writer, and executive producer of "Nip/Tuck" proved he was a total genius with this series. His writing was always entertaining, yet educational and some of the cases depicted were actually based on real-life people. It is no wonder that Ryan would go on to helping create another hit show with FOX's "Glee".
"Nip/Tuck" also had a supporting cast that was as good as the leads and included Kelly Carlson, John Hensley, and Joley Richardson. Some huge Hollywood names were added to the cast as the years progressed in guest-roles including Vanessa Redgrave, Rosie O'Donnell, Mario Lopez, Joan Rivers, and most importantly Sharon Gless who played a psycho, based on Annie Wiles, in the fifth season.
This wonderful box set includes all 100 widescreen episodes of the series, along with all the bonus features that were part of the individual sets. These bonuses are gag reels, deleted scenes, and featurettes. Unfortuantely, no new bonuses are included in this "complete set", but if you haven't bought any "Nip/Tuck" DVD's this is a great place to start: the pricing is very affordable.

Oddly AddictiveSep 15, 2012
By ESE Cookie Lady
I recently finished watching the entire series on DVD. At first I thought it was just a shock value show. But as I continued watching, I found it oddly addictive. Sure, the characters can be fairly despicable, but what they mostly do is illustrate human foibles. Lots of human foibles. Probably foibles each of us, in our most honest moments, would admit to sharing with the characters: jealousy, hatred, greediness, manipulativeness, and weaknesses of all sorts.
The nakedness did not shock me--I'm not prudish--though I did see more of Christian's and Sean's butts than I ever really wanted to. What was shocking and somehow riveting was the nakedness of their terribly human souls. And sometimes there was a truly beautiful sequence that touched me to the point of tears.
Altogether, the show is certainly worth watching if you are someone who can look beyond the occasionally gratuitous bit of nudity to find some meaning in the struggles these characters go through. And struggle they do--mostly with their own darkness.
I especially loved the show's finale with Art Garfunkel's hauntingly beautiful "All I Know" running through the background as the characters go on their separate way in life. I found myself hoping that maybe some day they would find a way to be at peace with themselves. Just as each of us does in our real lives.

Buy the first two seasons - you may not want the entire series.Apr 22, 2012
By D. C. Obraztsov
First, I would like to start off by saying that the first two seasons of Nip/Tuck is some of the best television drama of all-time. It is gritty, real, intense, absolutely crazy without being too over the top, and the characters are relatable. The acting is so superb and the "bromance" between Sean and Christian is one of the best I have ever seen on television. If you are into shows with more "gray" characters than black and white, break lots of taboos, and have quite a bit of graphic plastic surgery in it, then you will love this.
However, after the first two seasons, everything went downhill. While the first two seasons were filled with bizarre story lines, they were backed by real emotions and motives. From season 3 forward, it turned into more of a very odd plastic surgery soap opera. The crazy story lines seemed to come out of nowhere and felt really forced; like they were begging for attention. The magic was just *lost.* I continued to watch the rest of the series because of my dedication to the show, but it just continuously got worse. The move from Miami to LA didn't help either.
The first two seasons are worth every penny, but I would not recommend buying this entire six series collection. Buy the first two, and then try to rent or Netflix the rest of the seasons, because even if you are able to stand them, you may not have a desire to ever re-watch them again. This show going from the top of its game to the bottom was so depressing. But definitely give the first couple of seasons a shot - you won't reget it!
Not in my top fiveMay 19, 2013
By Daniel A. Howard
Inconsistent is a good way to summarize this series, I was hooked to begin with, enough to watch until the end, cringing much of the time. As it progressed, or digressed I should say, and with the frustration of dropped characters, incomplete story lines, and never ending shark-jumping, I was finally able to enjoy it by realizing that it was in the same vein as "Arrested Development", not to be taken seriously. It is a mix of brilliant writing and imaginative stories, so just when you are loving the whole thing, it veers off into the ridiculous and preposterous. The writer(s) did manage to incorporate every sexual deviancy know to mankind, with the exception of child pornography. But I would not put it in my top six series: The Wire, Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Six Feet Under, Rome, Deadwood, Dexter and others would come before Nip/Tuck.
