FX's Sunset Strip

October 8, 2007 1:36 PM

Nip/Tuck PosterAfter 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.

This looks more appropriate for my bathroom than my living room since there's a little too much booty, but I still give the poster a thumbs up!


FX has some previews that are part of this poster

I was worried when they said they were gonna take the show to Beverly Hills just like they did with Private Practice. But it looks good at least from this.


At first I didn't understand the commercials, but I have to say that once I got them, I thought "oooh, that's cool."
I think the poster is beautiful and clever. Sure, the fallen angel thing's been done, but they still maed it come across fresh.
Regardless, I won't watch the show.


I love this poster. There's just something about it that draws the eye. It's way better than any other FX poster I've seen before.
