Famke Janssen as femme fatale Ava Moore gave a brilliant performance that stretched all bounds of responsibility and good taste, but which was utterly compelling.

The FX series begins its second year with assurance, inventiveness and more than a little boldness. If you're missing the sassy frankness and playfulness of Sex and the City, look no further: The torch has been passed.

Would be critical folderol were it not for compelling if melodramatic story lines dealing frankly with the emotional lives of its desperately flawed principal characters. Fortunately, stoking the show's popularity are actors who know what they're doing.

One of TV's most adult, provocative, outrageous and thought-provoking dramas -- and the bloodiest and most sex-drenched -- Nip/Tuck doesn't just push the envelope, it heaves it clear over the cliff.

Christian is more complex than the facade of vain, prideful, egomaniacal womanizer initially reveals and McMahon conveys these depths ably. Walsh has a messier row to hoe, but he does repression well.

The second season of Nip/Tuck seems giddily determined to top the first.

It almost appears that, in success, the show's producers have been given license to do just about anything they want. And what they want undercuts their own talents, to be honest.

Amid this determined luridness, the show tries to stick in some "real" drama, and the effect is knock-you-off-your-seat disconcerting.

I just thought Nip/Tuck was so over-the-top that it was crazy. It is crazy, but it's also funny and can even be deep about the shallow world of cosmetic surgery.

For every bit of obviousness, for every over-the-top plot line, for all the feckless boundary pushing, the whole ends up significantly more meaningful than the sum of those scenic detours.

    The second season stuck with the formula, and possibly made it even better. Probably the last season that was really any good, right before the show became monotonous.
