No thrlls, no surprises for the "disturbingly perfect drama" season4,
This review is from: Nip/Tuck - Season 4 [DVD]  (DVD)
As an avid nip/tuck fan, think I speak for a lot of fans when I say season 4 was a major disappointment. I wanted so badly to like it and kept tuning in each week in hopes that the next episode would redeem the last. Alas, it never happened and only became increasingly frustrating to watch. Ultimately, the only reason to watch this season was the fact that it is nip/tuck after all (edgy, intelligent and still worlds better than most television) and viewers like myself have most likely invested a lot of time in prior seasons already. Understandably, it had to be difficult to keep up the intensity of seasons 1 & 2 but the show's slip that began in season 3 was acutely magnified in season 4. Poorly written plotlines and undeveloped new characters, both of no interest whatsoever, plagued the show and it seems that creator Ryan Murphy was perhaps too busy with other projects (Running with Scissors) to keep a watchful eye on the quality/progression of his baby.
For people who have not yet seen it, please don't ruin an otherwise enjoyable experience by having any expectations of season 4.
