The sixth season received generally positive reviews from critics, holding a 63% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes,[6] the show’s lowest rated season on the site.[7] The site’s critic consensus read “Nip/Tuck wisely trains its focus on the relationship between the central duo of Christian and Sean during its final season, but this last hurrah often feels like an afterthought for a series that was left too long on the operating room table.”[6] Critic Kevin Carr wrote “Manages to keep things fresh and out-of-the-box... Just when you think the ideas get old, a new, bizarre cosmetic surgery element is thrown at you.”[6] whilst Michael Haigis quoted “Even though it may not have the lasting impact of its contemporaries, Nip/Tuck was a bell weather, revealing the true potential of FX.”[8] Joe Reid of The Atlantic gave a mixed review, writing “It was pretty much a guarantee that the final season of Nip/Tuck would be an ungainly mess, since that was the trajectory the show had been on since pretty much the beginning. But my oh my did it not disappoint in that respect.”[9] Many critics however argued that by the sixth series the show had run its course and criticized the show’s repetitive use of imbued scenes, with Tom Gliatto of People Magazine writing “The show was cutting-edge in many ways: the operating-room gore, the tone (cool, chic nastiness) and a willingness -- often exasperating, often perversely impressive -- to go waaaay over the top. Nip didn't just jump the shark, it pole-vaulted it,”[10] whilst Margaret Lyons wrote for New York Magazine “Nip/Tuck did not end when it ought to have and instead dragged its sorry bones to L.A., where it crapped away all its story integrity and became both boring and redundant.”[11] Cindy White of IGN Movies wrote “It's clear from watching these episodes that the show's better days are behind it. It's actually appropriate that Nip/Tuck should go out this way, considering it frequently explores the uphill struggle to maintain youth and vitality as time marches on.”[12]
