Carving out a niche

Play it: Nip/Tuck - Season 3
Play it: Season 1 , Season 2

This week also sees the release of Nip/Tuck - The Complete Third Season on DVD. The FX drama turns up the heat with a 3-way, a serial killer, a 4-way, young Matt running with skinheads, a sex doll and the disentegration of partners Sean and Christian's interpersonal relationships.

Call it over-the-top drama if you want, but it's presentation is pretty tasty... like an expensive Miami plastic surgeon might do for you. The music from the series for season 3 had less popular music, due to a lack of funds according to music supervisor PJ Bloom. But they got creative using several key songs to back some dramatic scenes. Some favorites were from Telepopmusik, Feist ("In and Out",) Broken Social Scene, Gotan Project, and Sufjan Stevens, using his song "John Wayne Gacy, Jr." to back the work of cleaning up after a serial killer (in the 'Frankenlaura' episode, 3.07.)

Season 4 kicks off a week from tonight (Tuesday, Sept 5, 10PM EST FX,) so get ready to get your ass lipo'd.
