Last nights Nip/Tuck was a little much. Its not that we dont like smoking weed and having threesomes with prostitutes, its just that the episode kind of sucked ass. Last weeks stigmata episode was fabulousit was provocative but still well crafted, with subtle details and a spectacular ending. But this week was just so out there, so ham-handed and obvious, and so neatly wrapped up that it tainted an otherwise outstanding season and incredibly tense, dramatic plotline.
(If you havent seen the episode yet and dont want to know what happens, you should probably stop here.)
So Christian and Sean are going to participate in the separation of conjoined twins. Get it? Get it? Because the twins are attached, like how Drs. Troy and McNamara are attached, except not? We bet it took six or seven fourth-graders like, 15 minutes to come up with that kind of nuanced symbolism. Also, isnt it illegal to perform surgery on dead people thats not an autopsy or for medical science? Or something? Were not sure, but theres definitely something not totally kosher about all that.
Lets get back to the weed and the threesome. Wed like to think that Christian bought the joint from Val Kilmer on Sundays Entourage because that would have at least made the scene interesting instead of repellent. The only way we could stomach that whole ménage was by hoping that this would lead to a how we both got crabs plotline. But thats probably asking too much. Surely the doctors can find a skanky type to do them for free, so its not clear why they had to employ the services of a prostitute.
Anyway, we were not into last nights Nip/Tuck at all. And Matts mullet is ugga ugga..
