A new breed of TV Serial
9 December 2009 | by (God's own Country) – See all my reviews

Last month late night I happened to watch two hour special of this series. I thought it's a usual "Average Joe Underdog" Story, the opening got similarities to the Jon Favreau/Vince Vaughn's movie "Swingers". But it turned out to the best Pilot episode I watched recently.

Story of Hank Lawson(Mark Feuerstein) dumped by fiancée, forced to move on with the help of his best buddy/brother Evan Lawson (Paulo Costanzo). To get over the bad things Evan made him to party crash which was held by high class people and on that party Hank saves the life of a supermodel. The event led to another and he becomes the reluctant "Private Physician" to the rich and famous.

With a good cast and great locations, this serial really blends CSI with Glamor. As a great fan of Discovery channel "Medical Detectives" and AXN "CSI", this serial takes a new turn on Information integrated Entertainment. It got the lot of subplots Work, Family, Medicine, Glamor, Wealthy, Hot Girls, This SERIAL IS GOING TO STAY.

Of course, the success of the show depends on it's long run and I wish the writers will come up with Great Enriched Ideas. What the Wealthy celebrities are into, other medical outlooks. And I am total sure this serial is going to be a success and it wins where "Dr. House" failed.

I give this one 10/10.

Royal Pains = Guilty pleasure's another side.
