I said Good Day!

Yesterday was a good day. I sent out my signed contract to Highlights. They purchased a word puzzle for a future issue of Highlights Puzzlemania. I’m pretty excited to get my foot in the door of such a great magazine. To quote London Tipton, “Yay, me!” (that’s a Disney channel reference).
Last night one of my favorite TV programs finally aired its season premiere. Nip/Tuck is in its 6th season. My husband and I started watching it in its second season. My mother-in-law loved the show, and we happened to watch an episode when she stayed with us after our daughter was born. Later, the FX network reran the first season then second season again, so we started watching it from the beginning (but in its second year).
Nip/Tuck is a medical show with plastic surgeons, Christian Troy and Sean McNamara, as the main characters. They are best friends and business partners. Nip/Tuck does show graphic surgeries (I cover my eyes), but the series is really about Sean and Christian and their messed up lives. This show is bizarre, fascinating, and just plain crazy! I seriously don’t know how the writers can keep coming up with the unique situations for the characters week after week. My hubby and I exclaim, “OMG!” or “No way!” at least once every episode because there is something shocking, disturbing, or overtly racy. It is definitely for mature audiences due to the adult situations and violence that is showcased in most episodes.
What did we think of yesterday’s premiere? Of course, it opens up with the cliff hanger full of blood and gore from last season. We are so involved with the characters after watching it intently for years, we want to know what happens next. There was the usual over the top story line touched with dark humor (Christian’s new puppy is named Lipo). My hubby and I discussed how there is nothing these guys haven’t gone through, but yet the writers think of something else! But we are happy it is back and ready to see how the rest of the season unfolds. Nip/Tuck is still wickedly good.
If you do watch Nip/Tuck, what did you think about the premiere? If not, what show do you HAVE to watch each week?
Here’s a promo clip:

I don't watch TV very often and I've never watched this one. That's cool how your husband gets into it so much, Kelly. Watching surgeries kind of grosses me out for some reason.

Congrats on your Highlights contract! That's awesome!

I'm excited because American Idol starts next week! Yay! I swear if I was young enough to be on that show I would be at the auditions. *Sigh* I hate admitting that I'm old :(

Congratulations on the Highlights contract -- that's awesome!

Congrats on the contract!!!

I've never watched Nip/Tuck - I mean with a name like THAT, I've been too afraid. I'll take a vampire movie any day over a real-life, looking, surgery.

Speaking of "I said good day". I'm almost finished with the first season of That 70s Show. Well I've seen them all before, but it's fun to watch again.
