Jenny Juggs

by

Nip/Tuck this week was hilarious. Christian meets a stripper at his usual strip club, apparently, who is “just his type.” The woman has ENORMOUS breasts that are allegedly natural, but they look like the boobs Selma Blair had as Ursula Udders in A Dirty Shame. Jenny, evidently, is a “feminist,” but I don’t think that word means what you think it means. In this case, it means that Jenny exacts vigilante justice on men who offend her by punching them with her breasts or breaking their phones and Halloween pumpkins. The least ludicrous thing about this is that it seems like that should hurt her.

In the end, she goes to Troy/MacNamara to have them reduced and sort of loses her mind since her boobs, apparently, were her whole identity, which used to be what bugged her and now suddenly doesn’t? I don’t know.

Teddy Roe’s story possibly comes to a close when threatens to institutionalize Annie and then drugs the MacNamaras with roofied s’mores (must try that) and tries to murder the family but instead almost gets murdered by an opera listening, wine drinking, perseids watching, camping serial killer. It’s possibly she does get killed off-screen, but Melrose Rules apply– no one’s dead until the head is separated from the body. Meanwhile, since Annie is a friend of Ana and Mia and she wakes up in time to rescue the fam from carbon monoxide poisoning.

I love that Nip/Tuck is so amoral that the lesson of this episode is: “You’re right to hate your stepmother even if she seems to be doing everything right, and anorexia will save your life. Plus you can’t scheme a schemer.”

    If you do, season two is the BEST. Last season kind of sucked, but this season so far has been kind of awesome.

    I’m not sure what you mean by last season, since Nip/Tuck has weird cable split seasons sometimes, but the first part of season 5 was also great. A killer who murders her victims by stuffing them like a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal? Neat! Also Christan was a whore and Matt and Kimber were meth-heads. Also neat!

    Oh and Jenny Juggs was fucking fantastic, albeit confusingly enraged on both sides of her surgery (where does her hatred of men come from? the boobs?). Loved the line that went something along the lines of “Guess just because you take someone’s weapons away doesn’t mean they won’t still be violent” after she hits Christian with her filled bedpan. Christian being degraded is my favorite!

    A Build a Bear killer? OK, now I KNOW I have to start watching…
