A week or so ago, a couple of people here in the office asked if I watched Nip/Tuck. They thought it would be something I would like and they proceeded to tell me about the episode with Melissa Gilbert which I posted about here. In a similar incident to the Melissa Gilbert story linked to above, I was talking to one of the girls about this week’s episode and we were discussing how Rosie O’Donnell’s ear got chopped off. One of the attorneys said, “What?! Rosie O’Donnell’s ear got chopped off?” (See above link to understand why that was funny.)
So, here we are in the fourth season of Nip/Tuck and I’m trying to catch up. I did the same thing with the X-Files. It wasn’t until I had someone who could catch me up on the history of the show that I started watching it in its third season. I still miss the X-Files.
I’ve decided to buy the first three seasons of Nip/Tuck off of Ebay because renting them and trying to watch all of the episodes before I have to return the DVDs is just way too much pressure. When my DVDs come in, I’m going to host monthly Nip/Tuck watching parties so I can encourage others to join me in what is probably going to be another Laurie obsession.
I think watching a few episodes of Nip/Tuck while drinking martinis is bound to be a hit with my friends. Hell, I might even feed them. Maybe I’ll start a trend. This could become bigger than Bunko.
