It's been years since we've watched Nip/Tuck with any sort of regularity. It's not like there was any one moment that turned us off, exactly; our lack of interest mainly stems from a combination of F/X's weird place on the dial (we think it's in the thirties or forties on the Time Warner Cable system here in NYC, although we're not too sure) and the fact that the show always seems to be more interested in delivering so-called "shocking" moments than in really developing its core cast of characters. You know? Anyway, this week's episode of Nip/Tuck contained one of those moments of gratuitous grossness that we were just referring to, a moment that has the Parents Television Council all in a tizzy.
In a hilariously worded press release that will probably just end up attracting more eyeballs to the show, the PTC wrote the following:
“Not content with depictions or descriptions of bestiality, incestuous necrophilia, or blood-soaked stabbings, the narcissistic sociopaths behind the production and distribution of Nip/Tuck have chosen to establish yet another low-point in the history of television."
So what could've possibly got the PTC's panties all in a bunch like this? We've got the moment for you, below. Be warned, it's definitely NSFW, and not for the faint of heart, mind, or spirit. Or for people who have eaten recently.
You sure you want to go through with this? Okay then, have at it!
