Promoted as a "disturbingly perfect" and "deeply shallow" television show and created by the mind behind Glee, Ryan Murphy, Nip/Tuck has been among the most popular and controversial shows on television. The misadventures and soap opera-esque entanglements of the lives of plastic surgeons Christian Troy and Sean McNamara won Golden Globes and boycotts from the American Family Association. Yet, as this first critical celebration of Nip/Tuck reveals, the show is also an examination of the American family, the anxieties and complications of gender and sexuality, and the class issues and illusions surrounding the American dream. The book is completed with an extensive episode guide and includes an interview with Nip/Tuck director Elodie Keene.
