Nip/Tuck Season 5 Overview

I did this due to popular search engine demand, I decided to write a summary overview over Season 5 of "Nip/Tuck." For those who haven't caught up and have completely know nothing about season 5, Troy/McNamara have moved to L.A., along with EVERYONE. Yup, Liz, Matt, Kimber, and Julia have all moved to L.A. Critics have applauded "Nip/Tuck" for going back to fun pastures after going super eccentric last year with sexy kidney robbers and a little person babysitter. But, 8 episodes in this season, "Nip/Tuck" has gone back to its weird turnstyles. Julia had moved to New York with the kids and comes back, in a relationship with Olivia (Portia De Rossi)--which Christian doesn't take seriously and eventually starts a relationship with Julia. Olivia has a daughter named Eden who has targeted Sean. This year has all been Sean. Sean is seen on Hearts and Scalpels, a fictional 'Nip/Tuck' parody and gets instant fame, and naturally, Christian gets jealous. So Christian modeled for a gay porn magazine (don't ask).

Matt and Kimber roll into town, gone from the Scientology and now drug-addicted. They strike Matt's 'two daddies' for money and eventually found out. Kimber leaves Matt for a porn company and Matt ends up in a fire incident. Oh, and their daughter's name? Jenna. Eden is 'Nip/Tuck' classic as a femme fatal bitch with plenty of problems and 'mixs things up.' As for Portia De Rossi, she melds perfectly with the rest of the cast. It is like she has always been there. Christian continues to be a jerk. Julian McMahon as Christian is no longer attractive to me, with his stupidity. The last episode of this year was a Christmas one, naturally and it wasn't all that bad. While last year, the Christmas episode was near to the last episodes. Last year's I liked, it was about a bum Sean befriends and eventually is killed and used for organs. The Christian+Julia match-up is pretty much George+Izzie ("Grey's Anatomy") territory. Too little and too late. And Sean discovering they are together... eh. And Matt's sexuality is called to question once again and he is a total homophobe in the end. Boring. And Kimber is evil again? Yawn.
