Not another reality-TV makeover show!
No, F/X’s Nip/Tuck is a new drama/satire about two Miami plastic surgeons that isappealing/appalling. Among other virtues, it’snot afraid to show butt implants—being inserted.Perhaps I’ll cancel that appointment with Dr.Brandt.
Is the program always this, um, graphic? Yes. Butit’s also got such satisfyingly tawdrystory lines. Meet Randi and Mandi, identical teenagetwins who want to look very different. Thenthere’s the teenage son of one of the doctors:He wants to be circumcised (“It looks like ashar-pei!” his girlfriend says as they prepareto have sex for the first time. “Maybe we shouldjust make out tonight”).
Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
