FX's Sunset Strip

TVWeek's James Hibberd: Rated

After ribbing FX for its oddly creepy succession of posters for marketing non-creepy programming, let's take a moment to appreciate the cable channel's latest ambitious key art for "Nip/Tuck."

Promoting the fifth season's Oct. 30 premiere, the poster features a desert sunset over Los Angeles, indicating the story's relocation from Miami to L.A. In the foreground, surgeons Sean and Christian find a fallen angel with surgically clipped wings. Gaudy? Sure. But also sexy and epic. The poster is like an oversaturated impression of the show's mood, which is why it works.
