Not a great season but still classic Nip/Tuck

"Edited 3/15/09 - WARNING - SPOILER ALERT
This season, we discover that Julia's baby is Sean's, and that it has Ectrodactyly (lobster claw syndrome). Surgeries include Sean doing a procedure on a Treacher/Collins syndrome patient (severe facial deformity), Dawn Budge is "earjacked" (her ear sliced off by an earring thief) a burn reconstruction on Escobar (he's back!), and a breast reconstruction on a woman (Escobar's wife) who's had her breasts brutally cut off.
Guest stars include Brooke shields as Faith Wolper (Christian's therapist), Larry Hagman and Sanaa Lathan as Burt and Michelle Landau, Peter Dinklage as Marlowe Sawyer, Rosie O'Donnell as Dawn Budge, Jacqueline Bisset as James LeBeau, Alanis Morissette as Poppy (Liz's girlfriend), plus the stellar, fantastic, and sexy Catherine Deneuve as Diana Lubey.
Some of the plotlines this season include Liz (the fantastic Roma Maffia) getting a kidney stolen (a la urban legend), the dog and the peanut butter, Matt joins Scientology, Sean has an affair with a potential nanny, Christian gets involved with Michelle, James (a woman) LeBeau has a dangerous hold over Michelle - running an organ theft ring, Christian battles with his own sexuality after his therapist hints that he might be gay, Liz's remaining kidney fails and she has to go on dialysis, Kimber seduces Matt to revenge Christian, Julia sleeps with Marlowe, Merrill Bobbitt returns, Wilber (Christian's "son") returns.
My favorite is the return of Escobar (Robert LaSardo). Escobar is so bad he's good, and he makes for a few great episodes. This time he's not just masking as Sean's conscience, he's really back.
The soundtrack is again fantastic (pick up the CD of the soundtrack to Season One), using music to complement the scenes, such as playing Don McLean's 'Starry Starry Night' (a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh) during the ear replacement surgery.
The season finale was fantastic, with major resolutions and some very big questions left for Season Five. The fault with this season is that once again there wasn't enough surgery scenes. Unlike Season's One and Two which focused on more surgeries, Season's Three and Four focus more on the daily lives of Sean and Christian, and have more personal trauma in them than surgery trauma. I'd like to see them go back to the old formula of more surgery issues. Since Troy/McNamara has made some major changes this year, I'm wondering how many more of the interesting pro-bono reconstructive cases we'll be seeing in the future. Overall, Season Four is as good as Season Three but still doesn't measure up to One and Two. Enjoy!
Great Series, Sub Par Season

"Well Season 4 of Nip/Tuck wasn't all it could have been. The first three seasons were brilliant and inventive. Season 4 seemed more like a second rate soap opera than a groundbreaking television show. Organ thievery, the "cult" of Scientology, the affair with a little person, a flashback, a flash foward, this season was full of cliches that played out only slightly better than the last show you saw them in. Don't get me wrong I love Nip/Tuck, and season four was better than most other shows on television, but not by much. If you love Nip/Tuck you will probably like this season alright. If you've been on the fence about this show, season four will probably push you over the edge (on the wrong side)."

"There was a very entertaining campy insanity that made the first two seasons a delight to watch (the end of the second season, with that lovable ham Alec Baldwin, was very very clever and fun). The quality, however, began to go down in the third season, with the whole "castrado" thing, but the fourth season is just awful. Very very boring, or as we say in spanish, aburridísima: no ideas, no narrative logic, no risks, no fun. Even the sex in this one looks pretty tame. I mean, when I was a kid, I remember that I knew when a comic book was running out of ideas when Batman went to the future to meet with the martians or something. I had the same feling when I saw the "Nip Tuck from the future episode". Maybe things will get better in LA, who knows?."
