    Its not a house wanna its nothin like it house is based in a hospitable and pretty much no where else and all house does is treat patients with a small back story to every episode royal pains is a good show compared to the crap they show these days it focuses on hank himself not only the patients its interesting,humorous, and enjoyable.

    A series that used to be watchable product now spiring down from mediocrity with excess drama and laughably staged accidents with convenient Hank or associates always 2 feet away from it, more than often having several of those accident happen in the same place with very short timespawns.

    This show has an interesting hook in the first episode. The first 30 minutes or so it just doesn't look good for the main character as he's in a lot of stress due to the whole doctor schedule. He pretty much losses everything, his job, his wife in the pilot episode. But after his brother walks in, his life is refreshed. At first, I didn't like how the episode was going and was but after his brother Evan walks in, it all changed. Royal Pains is nothing like the House Series. Its more unique and takes place surrounding their own built company. Every episode leaves a cliff hanger that makes you want to keep coming back for more. I highly recommend this show to anyone who's interested in medical, adventure, comedy, drama etc. Full Review »
