Botched

9Now

Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow are plastic surgeons dedicated to a noble cause: fixing the horrendous problems that afflict victims of botched cosmetic surgery. As such, Botched is an inspirational look at compassionate professionals working to restore dignity and self-esteem to those whose lives have been destroyed through no fault of their own. Yeah, just kidding: it's a completely non-inspirational look at people who've had hideous things done to their bodies and at whom you can therefore have a good old chuckle. Obviously it is all couched in caring and uplifting terms, and Drs Nassif and Dubrow are undoubtedly genuinely committed to their work, but this is not a program appealing to our best selves. It is, at heart, a freak show, and leaves you with a vaguely dirty feeling for having watched.
