Joely Richardson is planning to return to Nip/Tuck for its fifth season.
First, who decided it would be a good idea to prolong the suffering of this slowly dying show? It hasn’t really been worth the effort since season two. As the Amazon.com review says,
We need a new word for shows that go too far in the way that Nip/Tuck and Dirt do. Some sort of combo of nausea and drama. Drausea? Nausadrama? Hmm, this isn’t working.
Oh, wait: Drama + gross = dross. Isn’t the English language wonderful when it gives you exactly what you need?
Anyway, Joely Richardson is not dross. She’s brilliant, much like her mother, Vanessa Redgrave. Talk about good genes.
