Here are some of the things that I liked about Royal Pains:

  • The characters: The characters on Royal Pains are well-developed and relatable. Hank is a charming and talented doctor, but he also has his flaws. Evan is a loyal and supportive brother, but he can also be a bit of a screw-up. Divya (Shetty) is a brilliant and dedicated nurse, but she also has a strong sense of right and wrong. Boris (Scott) is a wealthy and powerful businessman, but he is also a caring and compassionate father.
  • The humor: It’s a funny show. The writers do a great job of balancing the serious medical cases with the lighter moments.
  • The setting: The Hamptons are a beautiful and exclusive setting, and the show does a great job of capturing the atmosphere of the area.
  • The medical cases: The medical cases on Royal Pains are interesting and challenging. The writers do a good job of researching the medical conditions and making them believable.

Here are some of the things that I didn’t like about Royal Pains:

  • The storylines: Some of the storylines are a bit predictable.
  • The pacing: The show can sometimes be slow-paced.
  • The lack of character development: Some of the characters don’t seem to develop much over the course of the series.

Overall, I enjoyed Royal Pains. It is a well-made show with likable characters and interesting medical cases. I would recommend it to fans of medical dramas and shows set in the Hamptons.

Author’s Note: Yes, I realize this is an old show but I recently discovered it and found it interesting. I hope you enjoy!
