Product Description

The complete third season of the hugely popular US drama series. Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon return as the elite plastic surgery team of Sean McNamara and Christian Troy, whose skill at giving others perfect bodies contrasts with their own imperfect lives. Episodes comprise: 'Momma Boone', 'Kiki', 'Derek, Alex, and Gary', 'Rhea Reynolds', 'Granville Trapp', 'Frankenlaura', 'Ben White', 'Tommy Bolton', 'Hannah Tedesco', 'Madison Berg', 'Abby Mays', 'Sal Perri', 'Joy Kringle', 'Cherry Peck' and 'Quentin Costa'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Over-the-top yet well-written, Nip/Tuck was one of the most intriguing shows on television… until season three, when it took everything--everything--way too far. What once used to be a show about self-worth and society's perception of beauty as portrayed by plastic-surgery patients has become about the abject humiliation of women and rampant storylines. It alienated many fans, who found its love of excess ludicrous and at times, unforgivable. Maybe it was the storyline about Matt (John Hensley), who discovers the love of his life was actually a transsexual, shaves his head and starts dating a white supremacist (American Dreams' Brittany Snow). Or the disturbing new plastic-surgery cases (obese woman physically stuck to her couch, a 17-year-old petrified fetus). Or even the new surgeon Quentin Costa (Bruno Campos) who sleeps with male patients, romances Julia (Joely Richardson) and turns out to have a little "physical quirk" of his own? But the knife that truly stabbed the show's pace into the ground was the ongoing mystery of the Carver, a rapist/killer in a creepy porcelain mask who disfigures victims. Just when the show starts to jell, another character with their mouth cut Black Dahlia-style turns up and throws the show back into a whodunnit, and not even a well-crafted one at that: By the time they reveal the killer's identity, you just don't care anymore.

Someone also made a mess of the characters, or at least turned them all manic-depressive; the moral flip-flopping between Sean (Dylan Walsh) and Christian (Julian McMahon) is inexplicable at best. One goes wild, the other grows a conscience--and then they switch sides. One is on the brink of divorce, the other gets engaged--and another switch. It's headache-inducing how each of the main characters become nonsensical and not the least bit engaging. Here's hoping Nip/Tuck regains its mojo in season four. --Ellen A. Kim

Nip/Tuck Season 2 ended with one of the show's two main characters-Christian Troy-at the hands of serial slasher, The Carver. As Art Garfunkel's track 'All I Know', The Carver's blade fell, leaving fans on edge. Suffice it to say that that edge grew even sharper when it was revealed that a whole year lay between that and the Season 3 premiere, due to show creator Ryan Murphy's working on the film 'Running With Scissors' and Julian McMahon filming 'Fantastic Four'

So, when the Season 3 premiere rolled around, how was it going to live up to fan expectations? Well, it wasn't, obviously. NOTHING can live up to a year's worth of speculation and theorising. I've heard a lot of things about Season 3, mostly about how weak it is compared to the previous two seasons. I disagree with that. I wouldn't call Season 3 weak, just... different, sometimes for better and sometimes for worse.

The season picks up a month after Christian's being attacked and the first episode in and of itself is a testament to the show's usual bizzare patient storylines, with a 650 pound woman who has become fused to her couch. Other patient storylines this Season include a fraternity prank gone wrong, a facial transplant (oddly enough, that particular episode was transmitted a week or so before it happened successfully in real life) and a man who wants his leg amputated.

Whereas I disagree with the season's detractors, I do agree that this season lacks one particular thing-cohesion. There is a LOT of random plot jumping between various arcs, making the whole season feel slightly disjointed. Things that happen at the end of one episode are not even mentioned in the next in some cases. Whereas this isn't exactly a reason to jump the show, it can become slightly annoying.

Another great season of Nip/Tuck, a show which continues to throw out the suprises and can plot twist in the blink of an eye. The first episode continues the season 2 finale in perfect style and once the action starts it never once stops to draw breath. Plus the all important question of 'Who is the Carver?' is answered, and believe me you won't be disappointed. Dylan Walsh, Julian McMahon and Joley Richardson are superb in the lead roles and their on screen performances are deserved of many awards.
Well worth the money, another quality season! Roll on Season 4!

I didn't really get into Nip/Tuck until midway through the second season - always thinking the promos made it out to be another turgid patchwork of domestic squabbles and sub-Dallas excess - however, the later storyline involving vicious serial rapist The Carver (as well as several other plot-strands exploring more in-depth moral issues) began to play out, and eventually, brought us into season three with a bang. Here, the writers continue the downward spiral of doctors Christian Troy and Sean McNamara, introducing a number of other plot components that only bring the melodrama to even greater highs, whilst even managing to include some terrific moments of wit, warmth and the occasional stab (no pun) at scathing social satire.
The writing here is fantastic, and is more than matched by the smooth direction and the conviction of the performers, with the three leads (Dylan Walsh, Joely Richardson and Julian McMahon) each offering further dimensions of depth to their characters, whilst also getting to indulge themselves in some seriously weighty topics. Throughout the series we see the surgeons juggle their usual work-related duties - with episode one finding the pair confronted by a morbidly obese woman, whilst a later episode finds Sean doing reconstructive work on a woman entering into the F.B.I. witness protection program - whilst simultaneously finding themselves with even more problems at home.

Format: DVD
The strengths of this show so that were so evident in the first two series are still present throughout the third. It's slick, stylish and quirky. However, the great weakness of this series is how that quirkiness crosses into self indulgent nonsense. There is often a lack of consistency and, despite the promising start, the carver storyline descends into farce. Nip Tuck has always been over the top but has now lost any sense of credibility.

Season 3 continues with the same romps, the same weirdly obsessed people and the same twists and turns as the previous two seasons, with the addition of the identification of the Carver. As dramas go, Nip/Tuck continues in a league of its own, with originality oozing from every episode. Plenty of twists and turns keep you guessing til the last second, with a hearty dose of emotion in there too. Brilliant work by the whole cast.

I bought this as an Xmas present for my girlfriend and have been assured Seaon 3 is just as gripping as 1 & 2 and each episode's cliff-hanger ensures you are putting on the next instalment immediately. The speed at which the box-set was viewed is also evidence of this.
