Okay, before you fans of the TV series Nip/Tuck decide to jump all over me for my dislike of the show, let me remind you – there is a reason they make chocolate and vanilla… different tastes.
The reason for the preface is that I checked out this series because I received so many glowing recommendations. My first impression was that it looked lame, but after hearing so many people rave about it (not just generally public, but people whose opinions I actually value,) I got the first disc of season one from Netflix.
Well, in a nutshell, I hate it. It got off on the wrong foot (or should I say cheek) by hitting me early on with shots of a butt implant. You might be one of those people who likes to watch operations on TV, but I hate them. I realize N/T uses prosthetic body parts in their shots, but it does look pretty realistic and pretty graphic.
The characters were boring too… the ladie’s man playa… his robot-like business partner that leads the caricature of a normal (boring) life. Even robot man’s kids are cardboard. There is eye candy galore and even the ugly folks are pretty people with “ugly” makeup. I just can’t get into it. I shut off the first episode long before its midway point and will be taking N/T off my queue on Netflix. For my money, there are just waaaay too many quality things to watch with my time.
RATING 5 out of 10
