The season premier of “Nip/Tuck” premiered on Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. The FX drama always gets mixed reviews from the public and critics. Some love it and appreciate the spoof-like edge while others believe the story line sometimes gets to the point where it is a little over the top.

The premier of season 5 was a continuation from the end of season 4. The end of last season seemed to be very unbelievable.

The story line became so bizarre that the critics (and myself for that matter) seemed to stray away from watching the show.

After watching Tuesday night, it seemed as though they are bringing back the humor to the screen. The reason why the public loved this show seems to be surfacing once again.

By the show beginning to focus on its two leads again: Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) this season may not be as ridiculously over the top after all.

While continuing those two developments, the big news for the premier was that the two plastic surgeons have left Miami and moved to Los Angeles. Here, their business and success are not flourishing.

The surgeons met Lauren Hutton, a publicist. Hutton gives them an opportunity to be on a television series called, “Hearts ‘n Scalpels.”

The relationship change between the surgeons, Sean and Christian is reversed. The dynamics changing makes for a very interesting and captivating show.

There are a lot of gaps that need to be closed in the story line, which I’m sure will be straightened out as we continue to watch.

Overall it seems like it will be a great season full of interesting story lines, humor and guest stars.

The move in locations and the new dynamics seem to be adding interest to the ‘over the top’ end of season four.

As a result, The New York Times said it perfectly when they said, “How fitting, then, that the plastic-surgery drama returns Tuesday for its fifth season by dangerously reinventing itself. Dangerously – and totally successfully.”
