Wednesday, March 3, 2010: Nip/Tuck

Wednesday, March 3, 2010: <I>Nip/Tuck</i> Goodbye, Nip/Tuck, you crazy tornado of gore, fantastically slutty people and perversion, you unyielding celebration of vomit-inducing taboos and dropped plot points. Despite its many, many flaws, I will truly miss this show. After its groundbreaking first season, it became one of the most entertaining guilty pleasures on television, and though I know this probably paints me in an unfavorable light, this show was honestly important to me.

So the series finale is tonight, and it seems intent on ending with McNamara/Troy closing its doors in the face of the supposed end of the plastic surgery industry (speaking of that, despite people not being able to afford it financially right now, is there any concrete evidence that nobody wants plastic surgery anymore? Maybe I just watch too much reality television and have a skewed perspective from living on Manhattan's upper east side for too long, but damn! It seems like plenty of people still want plastic surgery!), and maybe that's the way the show should end. These two guys just hermited together in some luxury apartment, unable to spread their poison to the outside world, isn't a bad way to write Christian and Sean off into the sunset. Because God knows they can't live without each other, and they certainly shouldn't be influencing other people, either.

But, really, my one true hope for the end of the series is that Matt just dies. Just dies a quick and forgettable death and that nobody cares about it. I hardly want it even mentioned. I hope it's like a flashforward, with Sean and Christian in elderly makeup sitting on some stoop somewhere, and Christian's like "Hey, remember Matt?" And Sean's just like, "Barely. He died. Want to call some hookers?" It's a rough thing being the most hateable character on a show populated exclusively by self-destructive, morally bankrupt egomaniacs, but Matt did it with extra frustrating behavior to spare.

Nip/Tuck ends tonight at 10 PM on FX. If you need to catch up on past episodes, you can find them on iTunes. But if you stopped watching after The Carver like everybody else, check out Week in Preview for less ridiculous options.
