FX's Sunset Strip
October 8, 2007 1:36 PM
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 the image works.
Fellow amateur TV poster art critics, feel free to weigh in below.
