    I have been really curious about Nip/Tuck. I have never seen a single episode... but I am considering a blind buy on it.

    Pete: It's a really good show. They air it unedited, which in its small way, endeared me to the show. More than that, the acting is superb, and the writers craft excellent dialogue. It's got a lot of emotion, but at the same time is unflinching when it comes to the surgery. They show everything, and there's some parts that will turn you off of certain parts of the anatomy often chosen for enhancement. Definitely not for the faint of heart. If you can stand watching any surgery show on TLC or discovery, then you can stand this.

    That being said, I've got this on pre-order, and I can't wait until it gets here. The DVDs come out 6/15, and the Season 2 premiere is exactly a week later. I'm really digging the year-round schedule the networks (particularly the Fox family of channels) are implementing. I know it keeps me watching.

    Cool... thanks for the info Jesse... I never really watched the surgery shows on TLC or Discovery.. but being a big horror movie fan I am sure the gore will not be a factor for me. [​IMG]

    I've been watching the set over the past few days and it's really nice. The picture is good, a little bit of grain in some parts, but good. I haven't touched the extras yet.

    Has anyone else noticed some weird "comb-like" effects during scene cuts on this set?

    I'm viewing these discs on a Philips set to interlaced, which is feeding a 36" 4:3 direct view set. In many cases, whenever there's a shot change (i.e., from one person to another having a conversation), I can see what looks liek combing. I decided to step through a few of the instances, and what I found was in every case there was a frame that had *both* shots intermingled. Does that make sense?

    It sucks because it's very distracting. I don't recall seeing this on the first few episodes, so maybe that's why some of the reviews didn't mention it. I've seen in on episodes 7, 8 and 9 on disc 3. Could this be a disc issue?

    Hmmm.....I can't say I noticed that problem, and I watched them all over a couple of days.
