7. Because creator Ryan Murphy should’ve earned your loyalty with Nip/Tuck.

Around here, we stick with the creative minds who’ve won us over in the past, sometimes headfirst into defeat. Why else do you think we watched the entirety of Treme’s snail-paced first season? David Simon earned that camaraderie with The Wire. Similarly, Glee mastermind Ryan Murphy proved with FX's salacious Nip/Tuck that he’s a one-of-a-kind talent. So what if Nip/Tuck’s opening credits sequence is racier than an entire episode of Glee? Skills are admirable whether PG-13 or R-rated.
