The controversial medical drama, Nip/Tuck, began its sixth season on FX on January 6, 2009. The show depicts the lives of two plastic surgeons, Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and
Christian Troy (Julian McMohan), as they help filling the voids in troubled characters by beautifying them physically. Although it was initially set in Miami, Florida, it now takes place in Los Angeles, California.
Though Sean and Christian construct beautiful physical appearances, they struggle to keep their own personal lives “perfect.”
So far this season, Julia has returned looking better than ever; unlike how skinny she looked after her long coma due to the gun shot from her ex-girlfriend’s daughter.
Last season ended with a crazy ex-agent, Colleen, brutally stabbing Sean, and so Sean returns in season six wheelchair-bound, but is productive with his free time by teaching young plastic surgeons at a local university.
Sean and Christian also have a new doctor who is only 17 years old, but is a genius, and though he must learn how to stay professional with clients, he brings some extra comedy to the show.
Christian is struggling with breast cancer; he is eager to beat chemotherapy, but karma seems to be taking its toll on him as he looses his vanity to the chemo. As a result, he confides in his friend Dr. Liz Cruz, an anesthesiologist, to help him through this tough time but their relationship takes a new turn, causing her to question her lesbianism.
With the explicit surgery scenes and sex scenes, the show is not too popular with the Parents Television Council. The show, however, does contain many ‘Viewer Discretion Advised’ warnings and debuting as the highest rated new series on American basic cable in its first season, it has not only kept viewers engaged for six seasons with its tangled melodramatic drama, but it has also inspired other shows such as Dr. 90210.
