Watched the Nip/Tuck pilot, because people keep mentioning the show. Gore, sex, child molestation, people eaten by alligators, passion, pathos... wow. They really threw in the kitchen sink.
I have to say that I did not like
any of the core cast. And I did not like
watching the show. Oh, sure, they did a great job with it. But the show is off-putting, I think. It tries very hard to go too far, and succeeds.
While on the other hand, Corner Gas
continues to be charming and amusing and clever, on a far far tinier budget.
