WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
For the second straight week, the FX network’s Nip/Tuck
(Tuesdays, 10:00 p.m. ET) served up the sickest, most twisted storylines on
cable television…and this time, not even infants were spared. The episode also
featured a perverted plot involving a very flexible, well-endowed yoga
instructor. For continuing its long slog through the gutter, the February 10th
episode of Nip/Tuck has been named Worst Cable TV Show of the Week.
The episode on February 10th began with a male
yoga instructor seeking the services of McNamara and Troy for a penis reduction
to stop him from habitually performing fellatio on himself. He explains,
“Giant penis plus incredible flexibility equals the best b***job you have ever
had.” Later, during surgery, the new, freewheeling anesthesiologist goads Sean
into taking pictures with the patient’s enormous penis. When the patient hears
about their unethical behavior, he threatens to sue.
Inspired by the self-fellating yoga instructor, another
character breaks his neck trying to mimic the maneuver. He asks Sean and
Christian to repair the scars on his forehead caused by the screws from his neck
brace. Oh, and while they’re at it, he’d also like a penis enlargement.
In a subplot, Christian’s porn-star daughter-in-law (and
former lover) Kimber asks him to inject collagen into the lips of his infant
granddaughter in order to launch her nascent modeling career. According to the
baby’s warped agents, she will never land the big accounts with her “thin,
villainous lips.” “They like full, bee-stung, sensuous lips,” Kimber explains.
The camera pans to wall-sized black and white prints of babies in heroin-chic,
sexualized model poses. In describing previous treatments for some of their
other clients, a baby is shown being injected with Botox in her forehead. When
Christian refuses to perform the collagen procedure, Kimber takes matters into
her own hands. She administers the injections herself. The baby lands the big
account and Christian begins to perform the injections in order to ensure a
uniform look to the baby’s swollen lips.
It’s hard to know what is more disgusting – the yogi who
takes self-gratification to a ridiculous extreme, or the negligent, morally
corrupt mother and grandparent who subject a baby to cosmetic surgery for
monetary gain. As with most episodes of Nip/Tuck, almost everything
about the show is disgusting -- and thus, the show deserves to be named
Worst Cable TV Show of the Week.
