TV Tonight: Nip/Tuck

Another victim of last year's writers' strike was the oh-so-delicious Nip/Tuck. What was meant to be one of the series' longest seasons was cut short, with just 14 episodes airing — the last all the way back on Feb. 19, 2008! Luckily, it's a new year, and Nip/Tuck is picking up exactly where it left off, with the second half of season five beginning tonight.

For those who need a refresher, we last saw the doctors at their practice in Los Angeles. Sean was preparing for a solo surgery on his daughter, who was injured in a car wreck with Christian. In walked Colleen Rose, Sean's former agent and current stalker, who stabbed him multiple times, leaving him for dead in the operating room. Can you say cliffhanger? Sure, there were other story lines at the end of the last batch of episodes, including Julia's relationship with Olivia (and her deranged daughter Eden) and Matt's dysfunctional life (drugs, incest, etc.), but tonight's episode focuses mostly on the aftermath of Sean's stabbing.

If you're tuning in, you can look forward to an intense opener that rehashes the gruesome attack (and fills in some missing details) and then jumps four months into the future. To avoid spoilers, let's put it this way: Things have changed dramatically for McNamara/Troy. However, it's hard to say how much is different in the lives of Julia, Matt, and Kimber, as none of them is a focus in tonight's episode. Hopefully that changes soon. Regardless, I'll be watching the rest of season five; how about you? To check out the trailer, just

I am so excited for the new season!!! They left me with wanting so much more and soooo worried about Sean! I hope he's alright. I bet it's just a dream. I hope it's just a dream. Is the psycho daughter of Portia de Rossi returning this season?

I used to love love love this show (and Julian McMahon!) but sometimes the show feels too ridiculous, which used to be the reason why I loved the show. Oh well I will still be tuning tonight.
